Watercolor Flowers + Happy Forget-Me-Not Day!

Hello crafty friends! It’s Nina-Marie here wishing you a VERY Happy Forget-Me-Not Day!

What is Forget-Me-Not Day you ask? It’s a celebration of our loved ones! It is celebrated by making phone calls, writing letters, sending emails and cards or getting together with friends and family! It’s a way to let our loved ones – especially those we don’t get to see as often – that we love them, care about them and were thinking of them. I consider that a very good excuse to send a handmade card, don’t you?? ;)

So in honor of Forget Me Not Day, I have a special card and video to share with you that features some of our exclusive Simon Says Stamp products; the Spring Flowers stamp set and coordinating dies, as well as the You Matter stamp and coordinating die… and a few Simon inks too!

This card features a similar technique used for a card that I designed during our recent Believe in the Season release (you can find that card HERE). So many of you asked for a tutorial on how I did the coloring, that I thought I would use that same technique in this card to show how I did it.

In the video I will not only sharing the coloring process, but also other tips and tricks, including a close up look at a new favorite product I am loving: the We R Memory Keeper’s Ribbon Cutter! This cutting tool is not just a special trimmer for ribbons though… it seals the ends of your ribbon as it cuts, which means no more fraying edges! This is one of the products I am most excited about this month, because it always bugged me that my ribbon ends would fray!

So make sure you check out the video below to see all these things and more! I am really excited that you stopped by for this very happy Forget-Me-Not Day! See you again very soon, friends!!
