Simon Says Stamp Spring 2014 Release Blog Hop !!

OOHH I can't tell you how excited I was to be invited to join in with this Simon Says Stamp Spring 2014 Release Blog Hop !! Not only are the products GORGEOUS but I get to play alongside a fabulous line up of super talented designers !! AWESOME !!

 Thank You so much Heidi, Steph and all at Simon's :-)

You should have arrived here from the lovely and mega talented Laurie Willison's Blog but if not then you will need to start at the Simon Says Stamp Blog

We were all allocated a product to showcase and mine happens to be the Bubbles and Bars Stencil ,,, I LOVE IT  so retro and funky,, it reminds me a little bit of a beaded curtain :-)

First up is this more sophisticated version for my Mum :-)

I sprayed the stencil with a repositional adhesive and blotted most of it off using a kitchen towel before sticking to some white cardstock. I find this way easier for me that using post it notes or tape. I then used a blending tool to sponge Simon's Exclusive Sea Glass ink before sewing down the lines and adding sequins. I made a little tag using the new 'Mum' Die and  Tiny Tags Dies and coordinating Stamp Set. I finished with some crinkle ribbon that was coloured using the same Sea Glass Ink Pad,, love this colour :-)

next up is this bright cheerful birthday card 

I sponged Simon's Orange Peel and Apple Green inks and then followed the shape of the stencil to doodle the black lines using a copic multiliner pen and then smothered the centre circles with Star Dust Stickles. I stamped the balloons using the Birthday Balloons stamp set and added some random stamped stars before die cutting them.  I used another of the Tiny Tags, threaded some twine through and finished with a few Enamel Dots.

From here you need to hop along to the lovely and super talented Amy Kolling's blog.
