Happy Thursday, crafty friends! I’m excited to be back sharing inspiration featuring Simon Says Stamp’s You Are Loved collection and part of the blog hop they are hosting to celebrate the release!
If you have already been hopping along, you should have arrived from the talented Nichol Spohr’s blog.
Also! During this weekend, Simon is giving away a FREE Festive Berries Distress Oxide ink pad with any purchase! Use code LVE584 at checkout.
The cards I created today feature the Windows to My Heart die, along with Simon’s new Simple Sentiments stamp set. My idea was to fill the windows with glitter paper, and I used a pink, purple and silver. For a layered effect, I popped the window panel up off my card and adhered the hearts recessed into the background.
These glitter paper colors paired so well with Simon’s new, Girl’s Best Friend sequin mix! These sequins have some holographic-style confetti pieces that really draw out the colors in the glitter.
I love the playful greetings in the Simple Sentiments set; to go with the vertical design and the three rows of hearts, I white embossed three of the sentiments to layer across the card.
I really had fun putting these cards together; they were pretty easy to create! If you would like to see how I made them, be sure to watch the video at the top of this post. I hope you enjoy it!
And keep on reading to find out all the details about the Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved blog hop! Thanks for tuning in and visiting me today; I will be back again very soon with fresh inspiration to share!
