Simon Says Stamp Fluttering By Release Blog Hop


Welcome to my little stop on Day 1 of the Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop, featuring our newest release, Fluttering By!

You should have arrived here from Melissa Phillips' blog.  If you have just happened upon me today and want to start the hop from the beginning, go to the Simon Says Stamp blog We'll be giving away a $25.00 gift certificate at every stop on the hop, so don't forget to leave a comment!  The winners will be announced at the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog next Wednesday, April 18.

My first card features the sweet Center Cut Flowers.  This is a large cling stamp with a square border of flowers and this smaller circular bunch inside it, which is removable and can be stamped separately.  When I first looked at this stamp, my mind went immediately to an old-fashioned tussy-mussy, a little handheld bouquet of violets encircled in a doily.


supplies: white, periwinkle, and black card stock, Bristol paper, Simon's Center Cut Flowers and Hope dies, Spectrum Aqua markers and water, Tim Holtz Doily embossing folder, purple adhesive genstones

Since we've been having an extended winter, my "hope" is that spring arrives soon!

My next card uses the Stitching Butterflies dies.


supplies: white, black, and pink cardstock, dps from MFT Plaid Patterns Merry & Bright and Lawn Fawn Watercolor Wishes pads, Simon's Stitching Butterflies dies, Stitched Rectangle dies, and sentiment from Beautiful Day, adhesive strips

 I carried the stitching theme throughout the card by using the Stitched Rectangles.

And finally, I received a new stencil, called New Beginnings.


supplies: white and Green Apple cardstock, Simon's New Beginnings stencil, sentiment from Beautiful Day, Stitched Rectangle die, gathered twigs, twisted citron, and worn lipstick distress inks, finger dauber and Fantastix to apply inks through the stencil

That's it from me - your next stop is at the amazing Kathy Racoosin's blog.  I know she'll have something scrumptious to show you!

Here's the Hop order for today:

Your first card looks so much like your banner; I love it! I've never heard of a tussy-mussy, but I will definitely have to use that in the future. So cute! And the color matching you did with the pink and green plaid is A+. These cards definitely speak of a hope for spring. Thanks for sharing with us!

Love the flowers on the lacy doily.
