Hello Friends!! Happy Weekend to you! I can’t believe that November is behind us and it’s December but, …. it’s not only December …. it’s DieCember®!!!
DieCember® is that highly anticipated time of the year where Simon Says Stamp releases lots of beautiful die cuts & today is the first day of the product release blog hop .(Check the Simon Blog tomorrow for another hop with more inspiration and prizes.)
Christmas came early when I received my DieCember® goodies and I wanted to create some neutral cards to let the dies stand out and take center stage. A collection of four cards for my post today plus a video sharing a few tips on creating my cards.
First up is a vellum shaker card. A different spin on a shaker with a more subtle surprise. The “Happy BD” die is so different and fun & great for every age.
Don’t throw away those watercolor papers that don’t make it to a card because they are perfect to use with your die cuts. Every year Simon comes out with beautiful new snowflakes and I love the size on this one called “Big Joy“.
In my video I share how I converted this eyelet arch into a straight one to fit on my card. A little twine wrapped around the letter for an extra touch. I am loving the compact size of this “Miss You” die and the font. Such a beauty.
I love the boarders in this release … this one is called, “Corbel Curved” and it would be fun to make some folded stationary …. so simple yet elegant.
I had a leftover snowflake and I really wanted to make a crown for the cute lil penguin. What do you think? This “Picture Book Happy Penguin” makes me happy and he has two siblings!
Lots of neutrals and a pink heart for a pop of color. This “Miss You” die cut is different from the other one and I cut off the “Y and the “O” so it would fit between the love birds rather love penguins!
GIVEAWAY! YAY! Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from the blog comment areas. Winners will be posted on the Simon Says Stamp store blog on Wednesday.
