Simon Says Stamp Splash of Color Blog Hop!!!

Ahhhhhh.... yes! A Splash of Color with all kinds of fun in the sun and playful goodies!!!
You can see the entire release HERE!

I created a card using the Pool Play set which features Abby and Jax, a really cute set with tiny little stamps you can use to fill in small areas (like fish in her goggles perhaps??).    

I've used the coordinating dies to cut out my pieces and tucked Abby in between a layer of waves. My coloring of choice are my pencils, love them, and easy to use in tight areas.

I've shot a quick video of how I've made my card, you can watch it below or on my

The Splash of Color Release is Here from Simon Says Stamp!!!

And the Bad Blogger award goes too.... ME!!

I've been a bit busy behind the scenes with a few work trips...and this newest release reflects a lot of my hard work. Let me introduce you to... Splash of Color! You can see the entire release HERE!

Where to begin with this bundle of Summer fun... How about with stamps and coordinating dies!
  • Abby and Jax in Pool Play, they are wearing their goggles and masks for some time in the water. There are a couple of floatation devices for them including a duck and frog face plus little arm floaties. You can get the coordinating Summer Fun dies separately or in a combined set of Happy Swimmers.
  • The Nautical Sail Away stamp set is full of deep meaning friendship messages and words of encouragement along with Sailboats, anchors and creatures from the sea. The coordinating die set is called Set Sail, and combined set is Ocean Dreams!
  • A fun message set called Happy Block Greetings is perfect for your summer card making and our new inks! I've come up with a die set that can be used in place of the stamps (but with the tiny messages) called Summer Greetings. These are fun to stack! The combined set Summer Happiness compliment each other. 
Here's how they look!

Next, We've put together a group of standalone dies with greetings, borders, frames and shapes!
And finally, the gorgeous 12 new inks!! Just like our last release, I gathered color choices from my friends Debbie Hughes and Laura Bassen (plus myself) to combine new sets. Love them!
I hope you enjoyed a look out the new release! Bring on the Summer fun!!
