Happy Blog Hop Day! WOOO HOOOOO! I love blog hop day! Welcome to the new release hop for the latest Simon Says Stamp release called "My Favorite!" There are lots of stops on the hop today, and loads of inspiration! Be sure to check out all the blogs (full list at the bottom of my post) and leave comments for a chance to win. Simon Says Stamp will choose a lucky winner at every single stop on the hop. Winners will be chosen on Monday the 25th! YAY! I have two cards to share with you today!
My first card uses the new set called Beautiful Ride and it has an adorable bicycle image as the main image. Then it also has cute baskets, flowers and a dog and cat to ride in the baskets! I looooooove it! Of course, I put a little cat in the basket that looks just like my Buddy! I guarantee you are going to want and love this stamp set. I added a pretty yellow balloon from the Cuddly Critters Accessories stamp set too! I used my Copic Markers to color this one.
My second card features the awesome Cuddly Critters and Cuddly Critters stamp sets and matching dies. I used the sweet panda image and stamped him three times to hold a heart and a message for someone special. Just minimal Copic coloring on this one makes the red and black pop off the page!
The stamp set comes with two basket images - one for the front and one for the back. I colored the front basket and added sweet pink flowers. I cut and colored two of the flower images to make it look like they were hanging over the edge of the front. My bicycle is colored with Copics and then I used glossy accents to add shine to the metal parts (hard to see in the photo). I matched my colors to the pretty plaid background paper (Supply links at the bottom of my post)
There's Buddy on the back! Hee hee! I stamped my sentiment using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink. I layered a white piece of paper and a pink layer. All my images are popped off the page using foam squares.
I think you can see the glossy accents here!
Now this next card would also make a great valentine! I love this panda! The accessories stamp set includes balloons, hearts, and little signs! I had a blast making little hearts above the middle one. EEP! There is no end to the possibilities with this stamp set. The matching dies cut the images so perfectly! Makes crafting a dream, really.
I used only one color of marker on this card - R29 - which is a nice deep red. I added white accents with a gel pen after my ink was dry.
