Simon Says Stamp Falling For You Release MEGA Blog Hop

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp  Falling For You Blog Hop!

Today's blog hop is jam packed with a bunch of amazing artists to showcase Simon's newest, amazing stamps, dies and stencils!!  There are background stamps galore in this release, with a whole stamp set made up of circular sentiments...a couple of which I will be showcasing today...what a super fun set with SO MANY POSSIBILITIES...LOVE when that happens in a stamp set, and Simon is so great at doing it!!  I made four cards, combining the sentiments with some dies to show you different ways to use the round stamps...
Round stamp made oval:)! 
Used a Simon balloon die three times (layered 3 times each) for the center of the oval to make my birthday card:)!!


I made a second one with an oval FRAME:)!  
The frame says it all...
The flowers are an EK Success flower punch.  Used a couple oval dies to position the sentiment perfectly into an oval shape for stamping, as with the first one, then used the two dies to make the frame...


I used the "Love You" sentiment from the same set, on the side of my card panel, together with a Simon die cut heart and stitched circle die, for my third card...

Here's a close up...


For my last card, I once again, shaped the sentiment stamp around a die, this time a MFT                                                                                                                heart die, adding some patterned paper behind the cut out...
The fun thing about photopolymer  stamps is that you can, depending on the design, "bend" them and reshape them...I thought it would be fun to try with these stamps, and yes, it was lots of fun:)!!  Hope you will check out the full release at the Simon Says Stamp Store!!
