Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Spring 2013 Blog Hop + Giveaways!

SSS_EarlySpringBlogHop banner (1)Today I am excited to be part of this blog hop featuring all of these new early Spring Simon Says Stamp products! There are so many fabulous new products. You’re gonna love them! Here’s some of my favorites from the new collection:

And here’s some projects that I created with them. This first card uses the Full Card Triangles Craft Die and the Tilted Banner Sayings set. I die cut the triangles onto masking paper and blended in the ink.

This next card cracks me up. We have a yellow tabby cat named Bella at our house. She runs the show. She thinks she owns the joint. This is from the Furry Cat & Box set and the sentiment is from Circle Friends.

Simon Says StampI just love how the kitty is peeking out from the squares. Those squares were made using the Tri Square Die.Simon Says StampAnd lastly, an adorable little gift envelope made using the small envelope die, envelope sentiments and perfect bow.Simon Says Stamp
