Simon Says Stamp 'Pure Sunshine' Blog Hop


Hello, and welcome to Simon Says Stamp's Pure Sunshine Blog Hop. If you have arrived from Kathy Racoosin's gorgeous blog, I bet you have just been stunned by something AMAZING. (BTW, Kathy is not only unbelievably talented, but also one of the kindest, sweetest and most generous people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting).
If you have stumbled upon this hop, I recommend starting from the beginning HERE. :)

So… today sees the release of Simon Says Stamp's newest products. And they sent me some to play with. The adorable Balloons and Patterns Stencil Set contains 4 cute 3 x 3 stencils which can be layered over each other for some fun results!! For my card, I first inked the balloons with Hero Arts shadow Inks (Pale Tomato, Orange Soda and Lemon Yellow). Then I adhered the stripe stencil on top of the balloon stencil, and smeared over white embossing paste. Once I'd removed the stencils, I sprinkled the balloons with chunky Doodlebug glitter.

Here you can see the stripes a bit mote clearly. Layerimng stencils is FUN!!!
