Simon Says Stamp New Release - Encouraging Words

Hello and welcome !
Today, I'm sharing three cards I made with the new release product from Simon Says Stamp. The brand new releases are "Encouraging Words" collection, and I'm showcasing "Stitched Alphabet" stamps set.

For the first card, I die cut a copic friendly white cardstock paper using stitched dress-up tag dies, stamped stitched alphabet, and colored with copic markers. Colors I used are BG96, YG95, and YG93 for letters. Then I stamped "Forest Friends (SSS101678)" on a copic friendly card stock and colored them using copic markers. 
For an owl, I used E41,E42,E43,E44, for a mushroom, I used R39,R29,R27. 
Sentiment "are a great friend" is from You + Me stamps set
The patterned paper is from SSS August kit

For second card, I stamped ENJOY and also colored with various copic markers
I diecut SSS roler coaster diess and then sponged with distress inks. Background was distressed with fossilized amber and spiced marmalade.  Sentiment "your dreams" is from Believe stamps set

All stamps I used are from Simon Says Stamp Exclusive lines. 

Here is my 3rd card. 
I wanted to make a coffee themed card as COFFEE is my favorite :) 
In this card "You + Me=" is from You + Me stamps set which is included in SSS August Card Kit. 
For COFFEE, I used E59, E57, E55, E31 copic markers.

I also stamped coffee cup images from Coffee and Tea stamps set and colored using copic markers - R39/R29/R27 for red and BG96/YG95/YG93 for olive green. For interest, I added some colored enamel dots from Echo Park products. 

To give it a CAS look, I left the other parts of images uncolored, and I love how it came out. 

As you can see, the Stitched Alphabet Stamps set is so versatile. You can just choose any words that you like, and then you can easily make gorgeous cards using this stamps set.

I have listed many words that I like so far, like "JOY", "PEACE", "HAPPY", "SEND", "TALK"...too many to write down all. 
So, what is your cue word that you want to make from this stamp set ? :) 

Thank you for reading this post.
I hope you enjoyed it.
