Summer Card + SSS Sending Sunshine BLOG HOP


Hi there everyone! Today we are celebrating the new "Sending Sunshine" release by Simon Says Stamp with a blog hop and I'm so excited to have you here! Make sure to read till the end because there is a giveaway and a little surprise ;).

¡Hola a todos! Hoy estamos celebrando el lanzamiento de la nueva colección de Simon Says Stamp "Sending Sunshine" con este blog hop y ¡estoy encantada de tenerte por aquí! Asegúrate de leer hasta el final porque hay un sorteo y una pequeña sorpresa ;). 

SUMMER TIME



Sometimes it's difficult to choose what to use among so many wonderful products, but the moment I saw the "Flower Cluster" I knew I had to play with it first! I love how detailed it is, just beautiful. 

Algunas veces es difícil elegir un producto entre tantas maravillas, pero en cuanto vi el troquel "Flower Cluster" supe que tenía que usarlo primero, ¡es precioso!




To make my card I simply inked a three pieces of cardstock with Distress Oxide Inks, die cut all the pieces and arranged them together. That simple! But please for more details watch the video below or at my Youtube channel ;).

Para hacer esta tarjeta he coloreado tres trozos de cartulina con tintas Distress Oxide, he troquelado todas las piezas y las he pegado en un panel gris. ¡Así de simple! Para más detalles podéis ver el vídeo aquí abajo o en mi canal de Youtube ;).
