Simon Says Stamp's Valentine's Blog Hop


Hello, and welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Valentine's Day Blog Hop. Love is in the air, and Simon Says Stamp has made it easier than ever to create amazing Valentines for your loved ones with their stunning new release stamps and dies. I was asked to create a card with their new products, but I made 2... their stamps are just too awesome.
For my first card, I decided to create a poem with some of the awesome sentiment stamps. First, I stamped the 'Hey There', the 'I Love You' and the 'More and More Each Day' (which I masked and altered) from the Talk Bubbles 2 set, then I stamped the 'on a day' message from the Just a Love Note set. I die cut the little speech bubbles with THESE dies and all the sweet hearts are from THIS adorable must-have set. I love ALL these products. Seriously LOVE them.

And for my second card, I decided to make something more masculine... :)
These kitties from the Furry Kisses set are ADORABLE. I love them so much. And I thought they went beautifully with the 'Wanna Cuddle' sentiment from the Simon in Love set. Cute sets. :) Oh, and that ticket was in the January Card Kit. It's the reverse of a couple of THESE Tim Holtz tags.
