Crafty Hugs Blog Hop!

Today, Simon Says Stamp is having a Blog Hop to celebrate their newest release, Crafty Hugs !!  This release is filled with lots of wonderful stamps/dies and accessories, that will give crafty hugs to family, friends and heros when you create with them!  I am thrilled and, as always, so honored to be a part of today's hop, along with some pretty amazing artists!  We hope to inspire you to have some fun and give some crafty hugs of your own to others!  I have made two cards with the very pretty new Center Cut Hexagon Floral stamp... 
I stamped a large card panel with the entire stamp in my MISTI (you have to take the pad out of the MISTI to be able to stamp comfortably, as this is a cling stamp) with smoke gray ink.  I colored only the hexagons with the single flower with stem, then put the whole piece of cardstock back in my MISTI.  I wiped it with my magic bag to avoid any static cling, then stamped with versamark and gold embossed.  I die cut and layered the hexagons, and adhered to an almost 6" card.  I used a sentiment from the new Hexagon Greetings, also embossed in gold.  I colored the edges of the card with the marker that I used for the petals of the flowers, so the colors would be the same.  Here's a close up...

The second one, like the first, but simply used the center cut piece...
I colored, layered and then made the card lengthwise with the sentiment from the wonderful new Greetings Mix 2 sentiment stamp set.  I colored the sides the same as the I did with the first, but opted for no gold on this one. Here's a close up...
OK...my fun is above, your fun is below!  
Simon Says Stamp will be generously giving a $25 coupon to one commenter from each and every blog on the hop, simply leave a comment for a chance to win!!  The winners will be chosen and be posted on the Simon Says Stamp Blog on Wednesday, June 3rd,
