Simon Says Stamp DieCember Release Blog Hop

 







Hi Everyone! Today I’m excited to join Simon Says Stamp for their DieCember release blog hop. I have had so much fun with some of the beautiful dies from the DieCember release.




For my first card I used the absolutely wonderful DECO-HEART - I know I will play with it many times making different types of designs. I created a textured bg for it using the lovely  
HOLIDAY-KNIT-BORDERSTITCHED-SQUARES. The sentiment is from  the set SKETCHED-FLOWERS.




For my second card I made the HOLIDAY-KNIT-BORDERSTITCHED-SQUARES the  focus. 
I used some silver glitter cs and the very useful ROUNDED-ALPHABET-SMALL for my Merry. The embossed lines are created with my bone folder and a score plate.




  My last card is the most important one - It is quick and simple and beautiful, but I can only hope I don't need to make any more of this. The OUTLINE-FLORAL-FRAME is my absolute favorite from this release - so beautiful and I know it will be running through my die cutting machine many times in the future!!!! I used the ROUNDED-ALPHABET-SMALL for the HOPE word and the ribbon is called AWARENESS-RIBBON.



Simon Says Stamp is having a fun promotion for DieCember®. Use the code DCMBR27 for a free Nutty & Bright stamp set (while supplies last!) with any purchase.

The code will expire Sunday, 12/9 at 11:59 pm EST



GIVEAWAY!Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop.

Winners will be chose over the weekend and posted on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Wednesday, December 12th.
