Layered Floral Arrangements with Copics + Simon’s Celebrate Women Blog Hop
Hello crafters, I am honored to be sharing some inspiration with you using some new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp; Incredible Woman and Good Job Mama. Both of these sets are great for not just Mother’s Day cards, but also for creating encouragement cards for the women in our lives!
Simon is celebrating the release of these new sets by hosting their Celebrate Women blog hop! Be sure to hop along to see more fabulous ideas using these new stamps!
If you have already been hopping along, you should have arrived from my amazingly talented friend, Debby Hughes‘ blog. The full hop list is at the bottom of this post.
One of the reasons I was super excited about the release of this Incredible Woman set is that I designed it! My idea with the set was to feature names for influential women in our lives, paired with words that described them. I also illustrated some florals to accent the sentiments, which I wanted to be sure to demonstrate in one of the cards I made today!
So this first card features the “mama” sentiment, embossed in gold, surrounded by flowers that I colored with Copics. You can watch the full creation of this card in the video above.
I embellished the card with Simon’s Flickering Butterflies dies, cut from Polished Gold mirror cardstock from Tonic Studios. There are also dots of Nuvo Dream and Vintage Drops across the card as well, in the colors Cloud 9, Love Potion, Pioneer Green and Bonnie Blue. Everything sits on a card base made with Cotton Candy cardstock.
I have been dying to use the Delicate Flowers stamp set that Simon released in their May 2019 Card Kit, so I decided to create a bonus card! This time I used the “mother” sentiment from the Incredible Woman stamp set, which is stamped in Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide ink.
The Good Job Mama stamp set features some awesome greetings for encouraging mothers, especially when things are not perfect! I used one of those greetings with the main sentiment; these pair so well together!
I hope both of these cards have inspired you to create with these two new stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp! Don’t forget to hop along and see more inspiration.
Thank you so much for stopping by and visiting with me today; I will be back again very soon with more to share!

Speaking of Mother’s Day, there are a few left of Simon’s Limited Edition Mother’s Day card kit! I really enjoyed creating with this kit; you can see the two cards I made with the kit contents over at this post.
In the purple floral card, I mentioned that I used the Delicate Flowers stamp set, which is included in the 2019 May Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. There are still a few kits left, so be sure to grab one if you love it!
