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!
