I'm Here For You - Simon Says Stamp Reason to Smile Blog Hop

On Wednesday, Simon Says Stamp released a gorgeous new collection of stamps, dies and accessorises and today they are celebrating that release with a fun blog hop. I chose to work with two new products: the lovely Clouds Dies, and the Pattern Swatches stamps.
Hugs, I'm Here for You by Lucy Abrams 
To make my card, I first die cut some clouds from glitter paper, then die cut a large Stitched Rectangle from white card. I stamped a sentiment from I See You, then adhered the clouds above it. Next, I die cut a Painted Hugs from white card, then stamped the tiny polka dots from the Pattern Swatches set onto it with Spring Rain Ink. I inked the edges of the die cut with more Spring Rain ink, then adhered to the clouds with foam tape. Finally, I adhered the white panel to a Hero Arts notecard.
Hugs 2 by Lucy Abrams
