I am so happy to be a part of today's Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop Day 1, along with so many talented artists, celebrating Simon Says Stamp's newest release, Be Creative! I have used one of the wonderful new stamp/die/stencil sets, along with two new sentiment dies, to make three cards to share with you for the celebration!...
For the first two cards, I have used the new Fantastic Flower stencils to brush color onto the cardstock for the leaves, the stamps to stamp the stems for the leaves, the flowers and their centers, and the dies to die cut the leaves and flowers. This is a wonderful set, and so much fun to create with! My cards are simply made, but this set does simple so wonderfully! I stamped the branches with versamark and silver embossed. I used one of the new sentiment dies from the Greetings Trio, die cut and layered. Here's a close up...
The second one, a different layout, and different color for the leaves, flowers, stem, as well as a different sentiment...
Here's a close up...
For the third card, I used the other set of leaves in this set...
I stenciled the leaves, stamped the branches, then put the stencil back over the leaves. I used Tonic Glitter paste and spread it over the leaves...for some sparkle! I used a sentiment from the Picnic Floral Sentiments stamp set. Here's a closeup...
The possibilities with this set are endless!! I had SO much fun making my cards..now it's your turn for some fun!
