SSS One of a Kind Release Blog Hop


Hello. I'm honored to be a part of the blog hop celebrating the One of a Kind release from Simon Says Stamp. Today, I'm sharing a customized gift idea using THIS adorable and clever new stamp set...


I thought the thumbprint art would be a perfect accent to add to a card set created for my son's preschool principal. I stamped one of the animal images on to each background cut with THIS wonky rectangle die. I added a strip that I printed on my computer to customize the cards and used a strip of THIS scalloped frame die to add below the greeting. I adhered a piece of fun foam to the back of each background and added each to a Lawn Fawn Notecard. I used THIS black glaze pen to intensify the eyes on the critters.


I kept these super simple and kept the focus on the charming images...

You can see the entire One of a Kind collection HERE.
