Dream Big Blog Hop!

I am thrilled to be a part of today's Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop, celebrating Simon Says Stamp's newest release, Dream Big!  There is so much in this release...happy, fun, beautiful, sweet, stamps, dies, stencils, embossing folders...and all kinds of new accessories from Simon!  I have used a cool and fun new die, sentiment stamp set, and embossing folder, to make a couple cards to share with you...

The die is called Fab Flower, and I felt the name just "fit" a rainbow theme.  The first one, I made the flowers rainbow...
 I chose to color the petals of the flowers the same  rainbow on all three flowers(but moved the rainbow of petals in different positions on the card).  I layered the flowers on both cards with 3 of the bottom pieces, and two of the top.  I then embossed the white panel they would be adhered to, with the cool and fun new Dibble Dot embossing folder!  I used one of the new sentiment stamps from the Big and Bold stamp set, and stamped, die cut, and layered the sentiment.  Here's a close up of thes card... 

 The second card, I wanted more rainbows, but also wanted to make the fab flowers daisies, so...
...I made the background rainbow, and made the fab flowers into cute daisies!  I die cut and layered the flowers, just as I had the ones on the first card.  I cut very thin strips of black cardstock for the stems, and stamped another sentiment from the Big and Bold set onto a piece of rainbow striped patterned paper!  The centers of the daisies were die cut and layered from an older CZ Design die set, no longer available(Buttercup Build-a-Bloom), but you can find little circles in lots of random dies.  I popped it up on a white card, here's a close up...
I had SO much fun making my cards...now it's your turn for some fun!  
Simon is generously giving a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from our comment sections, so the more hop blogs you comment on, the more chances you have to win!  Winners will be chosen and posted on the Simon Blog on Wednesday, July 27th, so make sure you check the Simon Blog on the 27th, to see if you are a winner!!  If you are a winner, you can email Simon to claim your prize.

I love both cards, especially the Happy Birthday one.
