With Christmas behind us and the New Year here, Simon Says Stamp is celebrating their latest release, You Have My Heart, a beautiful collection of stamps and dies filled with loving and happy messages and images...beginning the new year with love! This collection is perfect for everyday, but with all the beautiful hearts in the stamps and dies of this release, it is especially wonderful for the most celebrated day of the year for love, Valentine's Day!!
I am so thrilled to be a part of this fun blog hop, joining some amazing artists, showcasing the amazing stamps and dies of this new release!! You should have arrived here from the creative and sweet Sarah Moerman's blog!
I have made a couple cards to show you. I have a question for my first one...who/what does it make you think of when you see it?...
I used some watercolor paper and with one of the middle dies from the new Nested Hearts dies, I created a mask to watercolor a heart onto the paper. I LOVE these heart dies, the sizes go from tiny to extra large...have never had such a wonderful variety of sizes in one set of dies, and never any this large for whole heart card possibilities!! I die cut and layered the new I Love You dies and adhered to the heart. I popped up the panel. The polka dotted ends are washi tape (loved the smaller dots and intense white and black that somewhat have it over simply using dotted paper.). Here's a close up
The second one...LOVE the new Texting stamp/die set! Couldn't resist making a card, as it spoke to my style of texting to my daughters, especially...
I chose to use Simon Says Stamp Island Blue ink as it most mimicked the color of my texts, and then cut out the text messages. I popped them up, die cut and color the heart with my prismacolor markers and lined them up down the middle of the card. Here's a close up...
