Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday—a trip back in time! For each throwback, we’ll be spotlighting fantastic cards and projects using products from previous releases. The new stuff is always SO fun, but think about all of those great products you’ve collected and set aside. They are STILL AWESOME! And we want to inspire you with fantastic inspiration from our creative archives.
A new exclusive Simon brand release is headed your way in early August, but today we’d like to take a look back at a couple of collections that made an appearance last summer. You might remember some pretty spectacular products from our Rest & Refresh and Believe In You releases. Below you’ll find four inspiring cards created with goodies from these fantastic product collections from Simon Says Stamp!
First off is this fresh coastal design by Amanda Korotkova:
The Your Light stamp set made its debut with the Rest & Refresh release, and it features lovely sailing and lighthouse images perfect for summer cards. Amanda made it shine with gorgeous color added with Polychromos colored pencils. This set is also fantastic for masculine cards. You can see this card by Amanda on her blog HERE.
Next, let’s throw it back to this pretty design by Yoonsun Hur:
Yoonsun’s gorgeous card features the Ornate Alphabet stamp set that was part of the Rest & Refresh release. She paired her commanding sentiment with the Bold Flowers stamp set and dies, the Marilyn Full Card die, and Flickering Butterflies die. Yoonsun shared this card HERE on her blog.
And let’s not forget this oceanic delight designed by Marge Yoon:
The Believe in You release included lots of summer-themed items. Marge created this fresh and aquatic design with the Never Quit Swimming and Clean Line Everyday stamp sets from this release. The Pebbles die looks so amazing paired with these two sets! You can see Marge’s original post on her blog HERE (and another pretty card, too!).
And finally this pretty summer bouquet by Amy Rysavy:
Amy features several products that were part of the Believe in You release on this delightful card. She used the Daisy Stem, Sunflower Stem, and Cosmos Stem dies, the Stripe Jumble background stamp, and the Thanks & Encouragement Mix 1 stamp set and dies. You can check out her original blog post HERE. And don’t miss her video on YouTube showing how she created her card HERE.
