SSS Celebrate You Release Blog Hop - Day 2

Hello crafty friends! I am excited to be participating in the Celebrate You release blog hop Day 2 that Simon Says Stamp is hosting today!


You should have come from Cheiron Brandon, but if not please start at the SSS blog.


 For my card, I stamped the flowers using new SSS Gerbera Daisy Background stamp set with clear embossing ink ontowatercolor paper and gold heat embossed. Next, I watercolored the flowers using my favorite watercolors and splattered it with silver paint. I stamped the sentiment from Big Birthday Greetings stamp set with clear embossing ink onto black cardstock and white heat embossed. 


Then, I trimmed the edges with my paper trimmer and adhered that banner onto my watercolor panel. Finally, I adhered my card onto kraft card base with foam tape and finished my card with sparkling sequins.


To make this hop even more of a party, Simon is generously giving away a $25 gift card to EVERY stop in the hop! Leave a comment for a chance to win!

PLUS Simon has a special coupon code for hoppers; use code BTF842 to get a FREE package of the Tim Holtz Butterfly Adornments with any purchase! Hurry, code valid only until 5/19 at 11:59 PM ET.
