Simon Says Stamp Spring 2014 Release Blog Hop! + GIVEAWAY!

Happy Friday, all!

Today I am taking part in the Simon Says Stamp Spring 2014 Release Blog Hop! Simon has released a bunch of new stamps, dies, stencils, inks, and cardstock today and we get to play with it all during this hop! You can see the entire release RIGHT HERE.

One of my favorite things about the release are all the birthday items. When I was designing for the release I was most excited about all of the birthday stamps and dies because I definitely lacked items like these in my personal stash. There are three stamp sets and two die sets specifically for birthday cards…

I got to play with some of the new birthday items and this is the card I came up with. Be sure to watch the video, too! I used the same Distress Ink watercolor technique that I showed in Monday’s video
