3 Ways: Simon’s Lucky to Know You Release + Hop + Giveaways!

If you’re looking for Spring card inspiration, you’re in luck! I’m sharing 3 different cards I created with Simon Says Stamp’s Lucky to Know You release! Today’s post is also part of a blog hop, which you can find details to at the bottom of this post.

First, I wanted to share the card I made with the new Bunny Butt Peek a Boo stamp and die set. I designed this set for Simon, with the idea that you can create a fun “peek-a-boo” door that has the bunny’s face on one side and its butt on the other! Inside the door could be a sentiment, a surprise scene, a handwritten message, or even a small chocolate treat!

I placed a small greeting from the stamp set inside my bunny door. To decorate the card I used:

  • a Simple Grassy Hillsides die from Lawn Fawn.
  • Tumbled Glass, Mowed Lawn and Twisted Citron Distress Oxide inks for the blended colors in the sky and on the grass.
  • jellybeans, flowers and eggs that were stamped and watercolored from the Bunny Butt Peek-A-Boo set. The bunny is also colored with watercolors.
  • and finally, some pretty sequins from the new Flowering Clover sequin mix from Simon.

The Bunny Butt Peek-A-Boo is super easy to put together, and I have a quick, Card Making Tip video for you to see all the steps I took to build mine.

The next card I created with the new release is this Spring tulip scene using the new Layered Tulips stencil set!

I illustrated this stencil (along with the Layered Tulips 6×8 stamp set!), and designed it in such a way so that you can easily align each layer to build these dimensional tulips with very little effort.

Each layer is aligned and blended with Distress Oxide inks. I chose Festive Berries and Spun Sugar for the tulips; then Twisted Citron and Peeled Paint for the grass and stems. In the background, I applied a light halo of Tumbled Glass to emulate the sky.

I kept the card simple and added heat embossed greetings from Simon’s new CZ Design set, Clean Line Faith. A bit of gel pen detail and Sparkling Clear sequins finished this pretty card off nicely!

Finally, I wanted to color one of the new, Suzy’s Watercolor Cards from her sweet, Spring and Easter Wishes set.

Using Copic markers, I colored these darling lambs in a pastel-inspired palette. Sparkle was added to all the coloring with some Lawn Fawn Liquid Stardust.

I could have simply mounted the colored panel onto a card and left it at that, but I love the versatility of these coloring cards. Instead, I fussy cut the image out and mounted it onto an ink blended panel. That piece was then layered onto a Cotton Candy card base.

A few of the new Flowering Clover sequins really completed this darling, Easter scene!
