Simon Says........Have a Heart!

wed-newchallenge-header
Time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge Blog!  


This week the challenge is Have a Heart, and the Design Team will be showcasing Simon Says Stamp exclusive products this week.  February is the month of hearts, and Simon really gave us some wonderful ones!  Hearts are one of my favorite motifs, so I had a wonderful play this week and made you 3 cards.

I was so excited to get my hands on the new Heart Flowers die - I love hearts and I love flowers, so this one was made for me! I used them to make a little garden on my first card:

SSS Feb 5 Have a Heart

The sentiment here is from Impression Obsession's In a Garden set, and I used Simon's woodgrain cardstock to die-cut my little fence.  Don't I wish my real garden looked like this?

And here's another one, cutting the hearts from Pebble's Family Ties papers, and mixing them all up:

SSS Have a Heart Feb 5

The sentiment is from Simon's Tag Sayings, and I grounded them with a Doodlebug Designs washi tape and added a butterfly. 

Another of the new dies is Heart Parade.

SSS Feb 5 Have a Heart2

It's really fun to paper-piece, and I used 2 more of the frames that the die also cuts to make a kind of argyle pattern.  My sentiment is from Simon's Thinking of You set.
