Hello! My name is Simon Hurley and I am a thirteen year old card maker. I love to create clean and simple cards using inks, stamps, watercolors, and much more! I have always been a very crafty person, but about a year ago I fell in love with card making. My goal is to teach you new techniques using fun new products so you can get inspired to make awesome cards! You can check out my work at

Here's a fun card by Simon today using our Naughty Newton Stamp set:

I love the fun colorful background he created for this - do you think that kitty made that big mess of paint? So cute - and I love the little white dots on the cat too - such a fun detail!
