NEW RELEASE: Pure Sunshine 2014 Blog Hop!


We are so excited to share the newest Simon Says Stamp release: Pure Sunshine!  To date, I feel like this is definitely our “sunniest” and most cheerful release.  These days I like to put sunshine and rainbows on most all of my cards and doodling.  Over the weekend, I created a rainbow by running ink pads across a canvas (you can see it on our instagram ;)  Bright, cheerful colors and images are such a welcomed sense of happy in the day.  Don’t you just love the sunny possibilities in the designs?


To celebrate this newest release, we would love it if you would ‘hop’ along with us while we share the delightful projects showcasing our newest stamps, dies and stencils!

There have been a lot of changes for me professionally lately.  Change is hard and it seems it gets harder with age.  Do you find that too?  We’ve been working through a beautiful new website, but so many methods of doing things have been changed.  We are learning new systems from the ground up.  It’s for the better, but I won’t lie…it’s been hard.  The cheerfulness of this release has really given me something to look forward to.  I have leaned a lot on the people around me to be a rock during this hard time.  Jason, my hubby and business partner, has been a rock (he’s been such a rock throughout our marriage).   But one person in particular has really helped me (and the business) a lot!  … ironically, she created the card below

It is so fun to see how designers create with new products! Stephanie Klauck used the new Irregular Dots stencil and Tiny Tag Words stamp set to create this fun card. Don’t you just love how she used the stencil to mimic rocks on her card to go with the sentiment!?  Check out how she used black cardstock  to make the front of the card really pop.


We’re so excited to hear what you think of the new products! Now let’s get hopping!

  1. Hearing my family say they appreciate me/need me etc makes me smile :) Loving this new release :D

  2. This is my first blog hop and I am super excited to see how different people create different things with the new release. I bet all creations are inspiring and beautiful.

  3. Heidi, you are right, the technology just keep changing. At least we can google most of it. lol Love the things in this new release. I hope to join the monthly kit soon.

  4. My flower garden never fails to brighten my day. I truly love observing the many hues of green foliage, the intricate structure of vibrant flowers, and the play of bright sunlight and cool shade across the various trees, blooms and grasses. It is joyful to watch the various birds splashing in their bath, the bees and multi-colored butterflies fluttering about, and the tiny green lizards scampering from leaf to leaf. Listening to the gentle splash of the water in the fountains, the birds singing in the trees, and the geese and ducks honking on the lake is better than any music ever written. No matter what kind of emotional turmoil is going on in my life, my garden soothes my soul. I even love the hard work of gardening – it is indeed a labor of love and gives me such an immense feeling of accomplishment and peace.

  5. My oh My…this release is Da’ Bomb Diggity. SSS You’ve Out-done yourselves once again. Love It!

  6. Awesome release! Loved seeing everyone’s cards! My favorites are stencils, balloons and patterns and gingham! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Every morning, before I fill the feeders, a Chickadee comes to take seeds from my hand. It picks a seed and gives it to its mate and then comes back and gets one for itself. It just makes my day!
    I can’t wait to see what everyone has done with these new products, I already am in love with a bunch of these new releases!

  8. What a great selection to choose from. Being able to craft and enjoy the sunshine is a great day!
