Blog Hop and Giveaway

Welcome to the SimonSaysStamp blog hop where we celebrate the “Friends” release! If you want to start the blog hop from the beginning you can go HERE

There are lots of awesome stamps and dies in this new release. Hop along with us to see all the latest and greatest, get inspired and win some giveaways!

Today I used the Picture Book KOALA die to create a clean and simple card. The design is really versatile and depending on the sentiment you decide to stamp if fits pretty much any occasion.

I created a window for my little Koala, and I kept everything simple so it really catches the eye! For the background of the window I used the Picture Book Tree Background die to add some interest and I also inked the background with blue.

Remember that you can easily customize these picture book animals. Give them flowers or balloons to hold, use ribbons to give them scarfs or bows and you can even add hats on them. So many options! In this case I turned my koala into an adorable female with a flower on her ear and some eyelashes.
