Hello, friend! It’s Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop. I’ve got three new cards to share with you today featuring new products from the latest release, Let’s Connect. Be sure to check out all the fabulous new products in this release. Oh, and here’s your chance to win… Leave a comment on my blog for a chance to win a $25 gift certificate to Simon Says Stamp. More details below!


Unicorn Love Surprise Box

My first card features the new Unicorn Love stamp set. This set is filled with the most adorable magical unicorns, a stable, rainbow and more. I made a Surprise Box to fit all these sweet images. Two sides of the box include the cute barn/stable.

For both sides of the box, I used the clouds/bushes in front of the stable for tree tops and added the tree trunks using my Copics.

Inside, I added partitions to the box and attached all of the images – rainbow, unicorns, and sections of the star banner – to them for varied dimension. Notice, I used the star banner in the set to make the stars exploding out of the box simply by cutting them in half. Because I’m using a larger envelope for mailing, I could allow the images to go beyond the surprise box edges. For example, the rainbow extends beyond and actually connects to the right side panel.


Here’s a look at the back side. Each of the images popping out of the box were backed with white cardstock for a clean finish. This card lays flat and fits inside an A7-sized envelope for mailing.

Next, I’ve got two cards featuring some of the same products and color scheme, but made for two different occasions.

Poppy Stem Thank You Card

My second card features the new Poppy Stem die. I created this slimline card measuring 8-1/2″ wide X 3-1/2″ tall and paired the stem die with the XL Thank You die. This is quick and easy card to make, but packs a punch with the black/coral contrast.

Nuvo Drops in black accent the Poppy centers. Sparkly sequins in a soft rose gold add the extra touch! The Bee’s Knees pattern paper is by Honey Bee Stamps.

Detail Petal Plate  Birthday Card

My last card features the Detail Petal Plate die for the black and white background designs. I also used the XL happy birthday die set on this slimline card.

Nuvo Drops in Red Berry were added to the centers of the flower designs on the petal plate. You can also see the beautiful design this cover plate makes for a background. The plate cuts a panel for an A2-sized card (4-1/4″ wide X 5-1/2″ tall), but I cut it down to fit on my slimline card.

Also, don’t forget to add the Card Sharing stamp set to your cart. You can give a card that can be reused by simply adding one of the fun phrases from the set. Here’s an example of one I did this week.
