Simon Says Stamp Summer Release Blog Hop

Hello lovely peeps :)
Today I have the huge honor of being a part of the fabulous
Simon Says Stamp 
Summer Release Blog Hop

If you have arrived on my blog from the talented
CHRISTINA'S BLOG
then you are on the right track, if not or if you encounter any broken links pop back to the
Simon Says Stamp Store Blog where the blog hop begins.


With my card I wanted to show how perfect the dies are to accompany sweet Tilda.
I have die cut the trees, the sun, and the large butterfly and then coloured them with copics as I always think colouring die cuts  really helps to add some depth and makes them "pop".
The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R12, hair - E25, E31, E50, clothing - C3, C1, C00 /  BG99, BG96, BG93 / W4, W2, W00 / YR24, YR21, sun - Y19, Y26, Y23, Y21, trees - E44, E43, E41 / G99, G94, G82 / YG97, YG95, YG93, YG91
Here are the ingredients.


I'll pop back later and add the copic colours, I'm having computer problems & wanted to get the important info and my post scheduled while I could.

Simon Says Stamp

There are so many gorgeous products to play with in this release, there is definitely something for everyone no matter if you are a crafter who likes CAS cards or of like me you are a fan of sweet images and lots of embellies.
 My absolute favourites have to be the butterflies they are so pretty. What's your favourite? 



Our lovely Heidi is very generously giving away a Simon Says Stamp grab bag containing stamps, papers & embellies to a random commentator on each blog so be sure to leave a comment peeps.

The next stop on the hop is our sweet
