Simon Says Stamp Friendly Frolic Release Blog Hop!


I am so happy to be a part of today's blog hop, celebrating Simon Says Stamp's newest release, Friendly Frolic!!  This release is jam packed with fun, beautiful and cool stamps/dies, along with a few other stamping must haves!!!   I have used one of the beautiful new combo stamp/die sets, Sketch Lotus Flowers, and used this super pretty set THREE different ways!  I'll tell you right now...I LOVE this set!...
On all three cards, I used a heavy weight vellum, gold embossed, and colored the flowers on the back of the vellum with Sharpie and Mark it markers.
 This first one, I die cut the flowers, colored, and layered.  I adhered the die cut vellum onto the white layers with vellum adhesive.  I used one of the sweet sentiments, stamping with versa mark and gold embossing, like the flowers.  Here's a close up...

The second one, I simply used the entire entire panel of vellum as the front panel of the card...
I stamped, embossed and colored the flowers, then adhered the vellum to the card in a couple spots, and tied some very fine gold thread around the top of the card for prettiness and to help secure the vellum to the card. I used another of the beautiful sentiments from the set....LOVE not only this set, but the sentiments!!!  Here's a close up...

The third one, I die cut the card panel with the die, and placed the stamped, embossed and colored piece with the flowers under a layered die cut panel....
This one used yet another of the sentiments from the set.  Here's a close up...
Ok...three different looks with one stamp/die set... I don't know about you, but I think THAT'S sweet!  This set is beautiful, and I truly had SO...MUCH...FUN!!!
My fun is above, yours is below!!
