Simon Says Stamp Spring Release Blog Hop!


Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Spring Release Blog Hop!  I'm think I'm probably just as excited as you for the release of all the new products from SSS.  I can't wait to hop around myself to see the fabulous inspiration from this list of designers!!!  

You should have arrived from the blog of Lorraine Aquilina but if not you can start back at the Simon Says Stamp blog to get started.  There are 17 stops on the hop so make sure you visit them all for your chance at a SSS Goody Bag!  Your next stop is Lisa Addesa.


I get to share an awesome new stamp set called Hello You with the coordinating Big You die.  I thought I'd show off how fabulous this new die is by using LOTS of Simon Says Stamp cardstock!  I started by laying down a rainbow of color cardstock strips onto adhesive covered cardstock and then die cutting with the Big You die.  To get the die to cut through all the layers the first time, I used my metal shim.  Worked perfectly.

AmyBigHugsfinal2

The sentiment from Hello You was heat embossed with white embossing powder onto some vellum.  Yes more vellum!  :)  My 'you' die cut panel was corner rounded and adhered with foam adhesive underneath the sentiment.  For that final touch, I've sewn the vellum directly to my Island Blue card base.
