Simon Says Stamp Hey Love Blog Hop!


Simon Says Stamp recently came out with a new release, HEY LOVE, that is FILLED with lots of amazing and beautiful new stamps and dies, celebrating love... I am so in LOVE with this release!!!  Today, Simon is celebrating this release with a fun blog hop...just in time for the season of love, Valentine's Day, but HEY...LOVE is for EVERY DAY, right???!!!  Hope you will join me and the other wonderful artists in this hop,  finding some "lovely" inspiration as you hop along with us:):)!  
I made a couple cards that celebrate love in everyday ways! 
My first card uses  a couple of the new dies and some distress inks ...
I used the die, Hearts Alive, and the new sentiment die, Love.  I die cut the Hearts Alive right side up and upside down on a full card panel.  I added one more die cut layer to each of the die cuts,BENEATH the panel...love a little depth,  and adhered a distress ink watercolored panel behind the hearts.   Added the layered sentiment (3X) and a few enamel dots.  You could use this card for all kinds of occasions with different sentiments on the inside...Love...on your birthday, on your wedding, just because, Love...and Hugs, you always, on Valentine's Day!!  Here's a close up...

The second card I made used the very versatile new die, Clipping Heart, and a number of the sentiments from the new All My Love stamp set ...
I die cut the hearts three times and layered.  I used a variety of paint chips to fill the hearts.  I stamped the sentiments on a die cut stitched rectangular panel and adhered the hearts to the panel.  Here's a close up...
OK...SO...MUCH...FUN!!!  Love is truly for every day...for every occasion!!
NOW...the fun for you all!!  Simon is generously giving a $25 gift card at each stop on the hop!!  Simply leave a comment for a chance to win.  Winners will be chosen from the comments on each blog and announced on the Simon Blog on Monday!!!  The line up for today's hop is full of amazing artists and inspiration, happy hopping!!...
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
