Love is in the air and Simon Says Stamp has made it even more fun to create projects to show someone that you love them with their 2013 Valentine’s Day Release.   I was asked to create a project using something from this release to share in today’s Valentine’s Day Blog Hop.

For my card I combined several of the new Simon Says Exclusive stamp set and dies.  I started  by stamping an image from Talk Bubbles 2 all over a  3″  x 4 5/8″ piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock in Sea Breeze VersaMagic ink. Small hearts from the new Lots of Hearts set were added in Key Lime VersaMagic ink in between the clouds. A sentiment from Just a Love Note was stamped in each bubble with the same ink.  Faux stitching was added to the edges with a black gel pen.

A cloud was cut with one of the Talk Bubbles 2 dies out of Solar White ink and stamped with the matching stamp in Key Lime ink. A sentiment from Talk Bubbles 2 was stamped into the cloud, rhinestones were added underneath and the cloud was adhered to the lower left of the layer with foam adhesive squares.

The card base is a 3 1/2″ x 11″ piece of Bazzill Limeade cardstock folded in half. The sentiment that I used inside the clouds was stamped in black in on the bottom right corner before the cloud panel was adhered over it with foam adhesive squares.  White and Limeade cardstock was cut with the new String of Hearts Craft die. I ran the white cardstock heart strip through my Xyron and covered it in glitter. It was adhered on top of the green hearts and both strings were adhered over the cloud background.

Last week I created another card with new Simon Says clear stamps. Just in case you missed it, you can find it here.

And now to the giveaway part! Leave a comment on this blog post and one lucky winner will receive a Simon Goodie Bag (if you know Heidi, it will be a good one!).  We will draw the winner on Thursday morning 1/31/13 at 9:00 AM EST. so be sure to leave your comment by then.

  17. Great card….as always.

  18. what a great word bubble but if you snip off the point it would make a cloud….like when can use a stamp in two completely different ways.
    stamping sue

  19. Love the way the dies match the stamps…getting my die cutter in a few weeks…what brand could you recommend?

    • Jessica, that depends what dies you will be using. If you will get Sizzix dies as well as flat metal dies, I would go with a Big Shot. But if you are only getting thin wafer dies like these from Simon Says Stamp and Spellbinders, I would definitely go with the Grand Calibur from Spellbinders. The embossing with Spellbinders dies looks deeper when you use the GC, then if you use other die cutting machines

  20. Love your idea of repeating pattern. Beautiful card.
