Simon Says Stamp - This is the Life ! Release Blog Hop !

Whooo hooo ! I am super excited today ! Why ? Not only is this my 1000th blog post (whooo hooo again !) but I am here today along with lots of amazing Designers showing off the Simon Says Stamp "This is the Life Release" in an amazing BLOG HOP !

So, welcome to the Hop !



Have you seen the new release yet ?  Wow, you just won't believe your eyes !  The Simon Says Stamp releases just get better and better !  

Here is the card I have made featuring the brand new Zig Zag Stencil and More Sketchy Banner Greetings Clear Stamp Set.





I was also lucky enough to have some other goodies to play with too.  Here I used the new stamp set called "Friendly Flowers" which I stamped using Hero Arts ink daubers.  Again, I used the More Sketchy Banners Greetings stamps and heat embossed the sentiment in gold.





Finally, I used the new Triangle Border Die together with another Simon Says Stamp die, "Viola Sprouts".  I coloured this with distress markers.  The sentiment comes from the "Friendly Flowers" stamp set.





I hope you have enjoyed seeing just a small selection of this fabulous new release ?!

So, here are the vital details you need for hopping !

The hop began today at 8am EST.

The hop started at the Simon Says Stamp Blog
