Happy and Joyful Blog Hop!

I am so happy to be a part of the first day of two Simon Says Stamp blog hops today, at the Simon Says Stamp Blog, celebrating their newest Happy and Joyful release!  I have used one of the amazing new stencil sets along with a sentiment die and a stamp, to make two birthday cards to share with you today!...

This first card was done with four colors of ink...  
I am kind of a novice to stencils and inks, so I thought, four stencils, four colors of ink.  Simply done, I used two green inks, a pink and a yellow.  I then stamped a sentiment from the new Birthday Sentiments stamp set with versamark and silver embossed.  I popped up the flowered panels on either side of the sentiment, and finished!  Here's a close up...

After the first card, I learned a little and let loose...a lot!...
I realized that this pretty set of stencils is so wonderfully designed, that if you use smaller blending brushes, you can use a multitude of colors on your four stencils, as the images on each stencil are spaced far enough away from each other to  make that possible.  So....this card became very colorful!  I used the new Birthday on a Line die for the sentiment, die cut in silver, layered, and adhered between the popped up panels.  Here's a close up...
I had such fun making my cards...my fun is shown above, your fun begins below!
