Let's Travel Together - Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes Blog Hop


Good morning! I'm thrilled to be hopping today to celebrate the BRAND NEW Simon Says Stamp Good Vibes 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 Elena Salo - if you just happened along, head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to start at the beginning!


You may notice that there is a coupon code above - enter code PUFFY when shopping at Simon Says Stamp to receive those adorable floral stickers! Coupon expires at 11:59 PM on June 24, 2018.

For my card today - I used the fun and fabulous new Classic Bicycle Die - such a fun and detailed die! It includes a basket, which I ended up leaving off - just couldn't decide where to put it, and liked it as it was, so decided to leave it alone! :)


I die cut the wheels from black cardstock, and the body of the bike in a combination of Tonic Gold Pearl Mirror Satin Effect Cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Lipstick Red cardstock, then just used scissors to trim and piece together the gold parts onto the red. Fun to layer - and infinite possibilities! I glued those pieces all together, and set them aside to dry, and did some blending on my cardbase with Distress Oxide Inks and my current favorite ink blending tool - the Tim Holtz Ranger Ink Blending Brushes! I have one for each of the color families - and they are SOOO easy to use! LOVE! 


I added some gold ink splatters to the background with my Starry Colors Palette (my favorite way to add gold splatters right now!), and once that dried a little, I stamped my sentiment on there using the new Vacation Time Stamp Set. I love this stamp set - so different and unique, and the mix of large and small sentiments is so fun to put together! 


If you are looking for more inspiration - head over the Good Vibes Gallery on the Simon Says Stamp Blog - full of inspiration with this release! And...when you receive your goodies, please link up your creations as well to inspire others! I also have this card that I posted when the release went live if you are looking for more inspiration - this uses the gorgeous Strangeness Stamp Set and Vacation Time Stamp set for the sentiment (like my card posted above for today!) You can see details HERE if you're interested!
