Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop!

Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp Early Spring Release Blog Hop. Today, I am joining some of my crafty idols to bring you a ton of inspiration for the new stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp. And believe me when I say these products rock. There are 13 other designers on the hop today - if you have joined in the middle, go to the beginning and do the hop in full. I can guarantee you will enjoy it. And there's giveaways a-plenty too! Yay!
So, here are some of my favourites of the fabulous new products...

And on to my cards!!
Both of my cards today are window cards created with the circle and square dies.
First, a silly card. :)
Can you guess who's hiding behind the window of this card?
Here he is...
I adore this whale from Kelly Purkey's Come Sail Away set. :) And he needed a wiggle eye. :) The paper on the front is from Studio Calico's Classic Calico 2 pad. I added some Bonny Blue Mister Huey's - incidentally, it's a perfect match to Hero Arts' Pool Ink - and a sentiment from the Square Sayings set. The sentiment on the inside of the card is from the ever-so-useful You set.
And here's another shot... how cute is that whale???
And my second card, also has a peeping critter...
The simple front of this card is meant to draw the recipient's attention straight to the inside where there's a fun sentiment. :)
Kristina Werner's Furry Cat and Box stamp is just TOO cute for words. I stamped it on some ribbed kraft card to give added texture. The sentiment on the front is from the Handwritten Sentiments set, and the 'Surprise' is from the You set.
Here's another photo...
And now to the giveaway part! Leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner from my blog will receive a Simon Says Stamp Goody bag. We will randomly draw a winner at 9:00 AM EST on Wednesday, 4/3/13 so be sure to leave your comment by then. (And be sure to comment on each designer’s blog for 14 chances to win!)

Bear Hugs

OK, so is this little teddy bear the cutest thing you have ever seen??? I'd say so. :) It's part of Simon Says Stamp's Circle Friends stamp set, designed by the talented Kristina Werner. I just love her designs...
I stamped the bear on scraps of paper from Crate Paper's Fourteen 6 x 6 pad. The background papers are also in that pad. I adore it.
And of course I added a ton of Glossy Accents to the bears' noses. Check out the shine...
I loved making this card. I love SSS stamps.
And don't forget that there's another SSS blog hop in the works... 27th March. Lots of cool designers. LOADS of prizes....
Back soon.
