Simon Says Stamp - The Color of Fun

Hello and welcome! I am very excited to be participating in the Simon Says Stamp The Color of Fun Blog Hop! Have you seen all of the new goodies that they just released? Fun, fun, fun!

I had the pleasure of designing an exclusive stamp set for Simon Says Stamp! Heidi wanted something "very Wplus9". Which to me means, something out of left field. LOL But to most of you, I think it means florals. So here's what I came up with, and it was hard to hand this one over.


Many Thanks 4x6" Stamp Set

This set is incredibly versatile. It is filled with roses in loose painted style. There are several sizes and each layer can be used alone or layered with others. There truly is no right or wrong way to stamp these!

I've got a couple of samples to show you some of the different ways to use these blooms.

Thanks to the range in size of the flowers, building up large bouquets is a snap. In this sample I've stamped each flower using a different set of layers. No two were created the same.

And of course, this stamp set is perfect for backgrounds and creating your own patterned paper.

The large flower in this pattern was created by stamping one of the images in our Little Piggy ink and then rotating the stamp and stamping again in Sweet Gelato.

I can't wait to play with this set more. I will be using it a lot even if just to add accents to CAS cards, like the one below.

The flower at the top is one of my favorites, I just love how it is perfectly shaped to look like it is tucked behind another flower, no masking necessary.

I hope you've enjoyed today's projects and that you'll love the Many Thanks stamp set as much as I do!
