Simon Says Stamp Best Days Blog Hop

Hey lovelies, I am super excited to be part of the Simon Says Stamp Best Days Release Blog Hop.

Best Days Hopweb

You should have arrived here from the lovely Bibi Cameron’s Blog. This is the second day of the hop, to check out the first day head on over to the Simon Says Stamp blog.

If you haven’t checked out the Best Days release then you can click on the banner below, or I have listed the products from the release at the end of this post.

Best Days Exclusive Collection

I love the mix of products from this latest release and you can see what I created using the Picture Book Croc die by checking out my post here.

For this card I am using the super sweet Oh Baby Stamp set & Co-ordinating die set. This is a really sweet stamp set for anyone who is expecting, or if you know someone with a new baby.

The set has outline images so you can colour, but they have also included the solid image so you if your not a colourist, or are looking for a different look then you can easily do so…this also makes this set a lot more versatile.

I really didn’t know what images to use for my card and ended up colouring them all, but in the end only used the bib image.


I created the background using a cloud stencil and some Tumbled Glass Distress ink, added the sentiment and left that to one side whilst I coloured the images.


I stamped them using Simon’s Barely Beige ink and coloured them using Polychromo Pencils, I wanted a very soft look…which was quick tricky for me as I do like a lot of depth.


I die cut them using the co-ordinting die and then added a “washing line” with some twine and attached them using some mini pegs that I have had in my stash for years. To tie in the blue from the bib i added some Doddlebug paper along the bottom of the card and adhered the main panel using some foam tape.

  1. The clothesline card is such a clever idea! I especially liked the tree cutout with green leaf. I’ve looked at this die before but couldn’t picture how to use it. You’ve soaked many ideas for use.


  2. Your card is so adorable…I love those little bibs hanging on the clothesline! Those clouds are so soft and fluffy. That would be such a cute card to send to new parents!
