SSS You Are Loved Release Blog Hop Day 2

Hello and Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp You Are Loved Release Blog Hop, Day 2! 

I'm so excited to join this Blog Hop today! Make sure to read until the end if you want to know all the details and how to participate in a giveaway. You should have come from Lea Lawson, and your next stop is Elena Salo.




This latest release from Simon Says Stamp perfect for the upcoming Valentine’s Day. Today we celebrate with an inspirational blog hop and lots of giveaways and a free gift.








I made two cards to celebrate this Blog hop! For my first card I stamped the big heart and word LOVE from Ornate Love stamp set onto pink cardstock and white heat embossed it before die cutting. Then, I blended some pink inks onto white panel and splattered with the same inks.



 I blended pink and red inks on top of the heart and LOVE for more depth and adhered on top of my panel with foam tape.


 I white heat embossed the sentiment onto stripe of kraft cardstock and finished my card with sequins.







For my second card I used All My Heart stencil. I blended pink inks through the stencil onto white piece of paper and splattered it with pink ink and silver paint.



Next, I stamped LOVE with clear inks onto kraft cardstock and white heat embossed before die cutting. Then, I adhered it on top of my panel with foam tape.


I adhered my card onto pink card base with foam tape and finished my card with sequins.
