Simon Says Stamp Reveal Day

It's reveal day.....

How adorable is this new stamp set Many Thanks by Simon Says Stamp in collaboration 
with W Plus 9?!?

Did I stamp these flowers correctly?   I have no idea, but I like the "artsy" feel of the card.

Using a little designer paper at the bottom, I edged the whole card in Delicata Golden Glitz. The flowers were stamped with Simon Says Stamp new inks Melon & Hollyhock, as well as Burnt Orange and leaves have just a tad of Surf Blue.
I also used Memento Angel Pink on a couple of the flowers for a little color variation.
Hollyhock was flicked across the card front as well as the Golden Glitz, because after all, it needed a little shine.


Next up is the new Build a Cone stamp set:

I can see using this set a lot as it has ice cream, tiny flowers, a slice of lemon and some really cute sentiments.
You know how I love to change up sentiments and this card was no exception. I mean really...the "You float my boat" was cute enough, but I had to add a little something to it.  :)

Background was embossed with Geometric folder. I then die cut the ice cream and boat, inked them up and stamped the boat with the end of a "cone" stamp. Amplify! White was added and heat set for the look of whipped cream. I hand cut my own wooden spoon, then added the sentiment.


When I originally did a sneak of this stamp set on Facebook, my dad (89 years old) thought it was something to eat. My sneak was of the flower card above. Gotta love him!
However, after looking at the stamp, I decided he was right. I could turn that small artsy flower into a cinnamon roll.

Shiny silver card stock was used for the pan. Flower was stamped and fussy cut 6 times, then White Opal Liquid Pearls was added for the icing.

Now that is a way to maximize your stamps!

I hope you enjoyed my creations using The Color of Fun by Simon Says stamp.

That first card is absolutely stunning... and to tell you the truth: there is way too much news in this post to digest! Wow! And to make the roses into cinnamon rolls - you are ingenious. And your Dad is, too! The geometric embossed background is a real eye catcher, I have to say... What an amazing set of cards!
