Simon Says Stamp Valentine's 2014 Blog Hop and Giveaway!


HOLY WOW, BATMAN! Simon Says Stamp has an AMAZING new release for Valentine's Day this year! You are going to LOVE IT!!! I have two cards to share with you today using some of the new goodies along with a chance to win a $25 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Woot! Woot!!! If you came from Amy Kolling's blog, you are already on the right track! If not, you might want to head on over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to start from the beginning!

I am also EXTRA excited because the fabulous Lizzie Anne Designs girls have collaborated with Simon Says Stamp for several stamp sets (and dies!) for this release!

Because You Are Awesome

ACK! Aren't these stamps awesome? And that super fun XOXO die? I used the Chalkboard Love set and it is just gorgeous! I layered the die cut over a simple white panel to create the background and then rocked the chalkboard technique for my banner. That really is my favorite technique! I just love the look!

Because you're Awesome (detail)

For my second card, I used the same stamp set and also pulled out some of the band new inks from Simon Says Stamp. These inks are so fabulous! I really love them! I kept this one super CAS, but I really like the layered colors.

Moments Together

Are you as in love with this new release as I am? Well, I have good news! One lucky commenter on EACH of the blogs in this hop will win a $25 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store! Simply leave a comment below to enter! The Giveaway closes at 6pm Eastern on 12 December.


Your next stop on the hop is the wonderfully inspiring Debby Hughes!  The complete hop order is below if you would like it!

Amy Kolling


You can find the products I used in the cards above in the links below.  Be sure to head on over to Simon Says Stamp to see the full Valentine's 2014 Release!
