Simon Says Stamp "My Favorite" Blog Hop




Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp "My Favorite" Blog Hop! 

You should be arriving here from the amazing Suzy Plantamura's blog. If by chance you just happen to be stopping by you can start at the beginning on the hop on the Simon Says Stamp blog. 

This release is absolutely adorable! I love so many things about it but my the show stealer for me was these super cute cuddly critters! A friend of mine was having a birthday so I decided that my critter would be using his balloon accessories!


I popped up the balloons and puppy but I used some shading to give the birthday die cut some depth! 

You can watch it all come together in the video 



 I just love the different looks you can get with ink blending vs. Copics. Don't you? 


 Simon Says Stamp is going to be giving away some goodies to one random commentor so make sure you leave them as you hop along! 

Your next stop is the incredible Debby Hughes!

If you get lost along the way here's a list of the whole hop


Thanks for dropping by!
