Simon Says Stamp "Cherished" BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY

Hello everyone! Today's post is part of a blog hop to celebrate the new "Cherished" release by Simon Says Stamp and you are going to love it!

¡Hola a todos! La entrada de hoy forma parte de un "blog hop" para celebrar el lanzamiento de la colección "Cherished" de Simon Says Stamp. ¡Os va a encantar!


I'm totally in love with all the stitched flowers that Simon carries and the new "Summer Flowers" are no exception. I colored them with Copic Markers and arranged them around a frame created with the new "Wonky Rectangles" dies. 

Estoy completamente enamorada de todas las flores "cosidas" que tiene Simon y las nuevas "Summer Flowers" no son una excepción. Las he coloreado con Copic Markers y después he usado un marco creado con los nuevos troqueles "Wonky Rectangles" para enmarcarlas. 



For the background I used three colors of Distress Oxide Ink (Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick and Wilted Violet) and sprayed a bit of water over it. Once it was dry, I heat embossed a sentiment from the stamp set "Thoughtful Messages" and put everything together with foam tape.

Para el fondo he usado tres colores de tintas Distress Oxide (Fossilized Amber, Worn Lipstick y Wilted Violet) y después he echado un poco de agua por encima. Una vez seco, he embosado en blanco la palabra "Thanks" del set "Thoughtful Messages" y lo he unido todo con cuadrados de espuma.


I have a video tutorial for you that can be watched down here or at my Youtube channel
