All the Feels Blog Hop!

I'm joining some amazing artists, today, to celebrate Simon Says Stamp's newest release, All the Feels, over at the Simon Blog!   This amazing release is chocked full all the feel stamps and dies, and I have chosen to use the absolutely adorable Bear Hugs die to make a couple cards to share with you today... 
 When I first started putting the die cut pieces from this set together, there were two things that I felt these bears had to have.  The mama/papa bear and baby bear had to be looking at each other(and a sentiment, of course, would have to follow).  The other was that the baby bear must be noticeably in front of the mama/papa bear, so the baby bear needed to be popped out a bit.   I opted to use two of the new sentiments from the Bouquet for Mom stamp set, on my first card (loved them with these images), making it a Mother's Day card.  The background was made with the Simon Layering Hearts stencil and some distress oxide ink.  Here's a close up...

The second card, I  chose a slightly different layout and theme...
  I used a single sentiment on this card, from the new XL Greetings 2 (there are lots of amazing sentiments in this set!).  What I loved about this sentiment, is that this card could be from a mom/dad (although, maybe just me, I think it kind of looks like a mama bear) to child/grandchild even, OR it could be from a daughter or son/grandchild TO a mom/dad! With them looking at one another, and a simple "I love You", it could be used either way...I like that, too!!  I used an older Simon stencil for the background, sponging on cotton candy colored ink.  I used a black marker to color either the tops or the bottoms of the bears eyes to have them looking at one another.  Here's a close up of these two...
  I had so much fun making both these cards, there's fun for you below! 
 Simon will be generously giving a $25 coupon to one commenter from every stop on the hop, so leaving a comment on each blog will increase your chances of winning!  The winners will be chosen by Simon, and the winner's names will be posted on the Simon Say Stamp Blog on Wednesday, March 31st, so make sure you check the Simon blog on the 31st, to see if you are a winner!
