Simon Says Stamp Masterpiece Box Blog Hop

Hello friends!
I am SUPER excited to be part of the Simon Says Stamp Masterpiece Blog Hop!
 I am a huge PBS Masterpiece Theater fan, so I love anything/everything that is Masterpiece!!!
 If you are arriving from Amy Rysavy's blog, then you are at the right place. If not, you can join now and visit Simon Says Stamp for this blog hop.

s

I am sharing three cards from the stamp sets that are part of the Masterpiece Box.
Here is one of them!
close-up

The box features 15 products from 10 different manufacturers. The idea is to bring something super special and exciting to stampers like YOU.  The Masterpiece Box features new releases from many of the industries finest brands! Can you imagine the all-in-one HAPPY BOX?
s
The first card was created from Clearly Besotted. This stamp set comes with many expressive penguins. They are super cute and fun. These stamps are perfect for using in planners/calendar! However, I think they are so versatile that I decided to create a card.
a note to thank hello

For the perfect stamp positioning, I used MISTI for lining up all of the penguins. With MISTI, it allows you to stamp multiple times. You can also use Fiskars Stamp Press for this purpose or simply stamp each individual penguin. This set is also ideal for the kids/young adults for their school planner, too! I think it makes a great back-to-school present!

a note to say hello

I had so much fun adding watercolors to the images. It is awesome for making CAS cards!

 My next two cards feature Mama Elephant's Tiny Ninjas. Aren't they adorable and fun? I easily came up with a soft and sweet version. I took advantage of the pattern paper and did masking with the cute Ninja. This card will be perfect to encourage any special girl/lady!

you can do it!

My last card is a bright and bold one. I didn't have to go through a lot of trouble to embellish the design. This stamp alone speaks volumes.

-that means thank you

This brightly-inked alcohol-inked background is perfect for this cute Ninja.
Here is a close-up with the sparkling sequins from Lucy's Little Things.

Ninja Thanks (close-up)

I hope that you check out the rest of the release from other designers as the box is ah-mazing!
Please note that supplies are LIMITED.  Once the Masterpiece Boxes are gone, they are gone. If you like these designs, you can purchase the box OR wait until the brand releases the product(s) later this summer/fall.

Lastly, if you already pre-ordered Tim Holtz Crazy Dog stamps last week, you can purchased the box and can cancel their pre-order for the Crazy Dog stamp set.

And guess what?  Heidi is super generous and she is giving a $25 gift card to Simon Says Stamp
to one lucky hopper in each hop.  Yay! The winners will be drawn from the comment section!
Be sure to leave a comment in each blog while you hop!
The lucky winner could be YOU!

~~Today's hop~~

Your next hop is Chari Moss. 

I will be sharing my new creation with Crazy Dogs in my next post. 
Thank you for visiting my blog. Have fun hopping!
