Simon Says Stamp Mother • Fathers & Florals Blog Hop + Giveaway!


Welcome to my blog everyone!!! Today I'm celebrating the 

If you have come from Laura Bassen's Blog, then you are in the right place!

I've created a few cards using some of the new product starting with the Star Flower Mandala which I've white embossed and painted with soft tones of watercolors. 


I cut out around the outer edge so that I could mount the mandala to a notecard with a bit of foam tape on the back. Ok... who am I kidding... I used a lot of foam tape because well... 
that's my jam! 
This card is all ready for a greeting when an occasion arises!


To continue with the watercolor theme I have going, I used some Distress ink cubes to color the Flora Background (designed by my friend Kristina Werner). I spritzed the stamp with water then stamped onto a panel of white watercolor cardstock. 


I added some Tim Holtz flowers and the Love die cut for a simple greeting and embellishment.


Finally, I stamped a couple of Simon Says envelopes with white embossing using the Sending Flowers stamp set. I love using the transparent envelope with bright paper inside!
