Simon Says Stamp This is The Life Release Blog Hop!


 Hi

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp This is the Life Blog Hop.  I'm so Excited to be able to show you The Fun stamp set and die set I have been playing with!
 You should have come here from  the Emma Williams Blog.

I am Playing with the With Sympathy Die set and the Pawprints on your Heart stamp Set and decided to Make a Pop Up card for a friend that just put her dog down.

Here is my card front:



I used the tiny paw print in the set and stamped it using dark chocolate dye ink by Simon Says stamp all over the card base. The with sympathy is such a great die set and I can see myself using it lots. I used versamark and clear embossing powder to make it raised and shiny, same method was used on the scattered hearts.  The sentiment on the front is also included in this brand new set.

Here is the Inside:



I decided to use my favorite Simon Dog stamp on the inside a long with some Simon Says Stamp heart dies from various sets (listed below). So many great sentiments in this set, so perfect for a Cat or Dog lover! 

  I just couldn't stop so here is a simple card I made using the same set and dies


I could not leave the cats out, so here is another one using the set a long with the  Furry Cat in the Box stamp by Simon Says Stamp!


Make sure you leave a comment on each blog a long the way as Simon Says Stamp is giving a prize pack at each stop!!

Here is the prize!

 How Fun is that??? I'm a Huge fan of the Simon Says Stamp Cardstock and use it most of the time, and if you have not tried their Inks you're missing out,  I  just love them!

If you did not start at the beginning go to the Simon Says Stamp Blog for the Hop order.  You will not want to miss this Hop!!
Thanks for stopping by my blog today and I hope I have inspired you in some way!

I'm the last stop on the Hop so if you have not already left a comment on the Simon Says Stamp Blog head back there :)

Such sweet and touching cards, especially for those of us, who truly cherish our pets and consider them part of our family. My heart goes out to your dear friend...losing a pet is really hard... :(

Let's hope that Simon has a lot more years left in his life with Heidi and her family...I think he's adorable! Plus, I also have a senior dog (Scout a Male Dachshund), who I adore, plus two puppies I adopted through a rescue group!! When my kids grew up and moved out, was the perfect time to bring them into my life...love them to pieces....

I've already ordered both sets of the new Pups Stamp/Stencils/Dies and a few more goodies, of course. I'm an SSS addict and totally LOVE their exclusives!!

Great post Kelly and thank you!!
