Simon Says Stamp Summer Release Blog Hop!!


Hello and welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp Summer Release Blog Hop!!!




I am so excited that the summer months are finally starting to arrive!! I love the warm weather and the lazy days on the swing outside with a good book! But even though I love being outside and enjoying the sun, I do still like the days I get to stay indoors and get crafty, and the new Simon Says Stamp summer releases are perfect for that. ;)

For my card today, I used the new Hexagon Pattern Circle Die as my focal point and also used the 'Be' and 'You' word dies. I also use the 'Circle Friends' stamp set to add a bee to the finished card.

Be You


The front of the card is a diecut circle so it looks a little funny in the photo.




Supplies:




You can see how I created the card in the video below:

 
 
Bonus Card!!

I also have a bonus card to share today that I created using all of the little glittery hexagons that came out of the center of the hexagon circle die. They were too pretty to just throw in the garbage, so I coloured them with copic markers and created a flower on a new card.

Thanks For All You Do




Supplies:
