Good morning! I'm thrilled to be hopping today to celebrate the NEW Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release with a FABULOUS line up of talented creators! Today is Day 1 of the hop - make sure and check in tomorrow for Day 2 - there is a $25 prize up for grabs from EACH and EVERY stop along BOTH days of the hop!!! You should have arrived here today from the fabulous Suzy Plantamura - if you just happened along, head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to start at the beginning!
Today I'm sharing a card pairing up a new stencil, die, and stamp set to create this neutral and elegant Mother's Day Card!
I started off with the gorgeous New Beginnings stencil, and used it to apply white embossing paste to a panel of Neenah Desert Storm cardstock that I had trimmed down slightly smaller than my white A2 cardbase.
I die cut the butterflies from the gorgeous new Flickering Butterflies Dies, coated them with Tonic Crystal Glaze, then sprinkled with Rock Candy Distress Glitter. I adhered them by the centers with a bit more of the Crystal Glaze, and curled up the wings for dimension.
I added a smattering of Pretty Pink Posh Buttercream Jewels, and heat embossed a sentiment from the new Mom Flowers Stamp Set on a strip of black cardstock. I mounted that with foam adhesive, and then stamped an add on sentiment underneath.
I love how well all three of these new items work together!
What do you think - do you like simple color combos like this, or do you prefer bright colors! I honestly can't choose - and tend to enjoy using both! Once you get your new goodies - we would love to see your work linked up in the special Fluttering By Gallery! This is also a fabulous place to go for inspiration!
Also - if you are looking for a little more inspiration using the new release, I have these cards I posted yesterday using the new UNDER THE SEA stamp set - you can find the details HERE!
Your next stop along the hop is Melissa Phillips - I know she has something fabulous waiting for you - so make sure and head that way next!
Simon Says will be giving a $25 gift certificate to their online store at each stop along the hop - so make sure and leave a comment before you leave for a chance to win! Winners will be announced next Wednesday on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.
