Simon Says Stamp Diecember Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!!!

I am super excited to be part of the Simon Says Stamp Diecember Blog Hop - So many WONDERFUL goodies in this release! Be sure to hop along (names and links below) for amazing inspiration. When you are done hopping - make sure to visit the  DieCember® Gallery for even more inspiration. When you have your goodies ordered don't forget to share your creations there too so we all can see it! There are different galleries for all the SSS releases so you can share your old designs there too if you haven't already!!!!

You can view all the beauties in the release HERE 

For my card I used my absolute favorite die from this release - the SHIMMER-SNOWFLAKE - It is amazing for so many different card designs in different styles. For this rustic >Christmas card I used kraft cardstock and inked the snowflake with white ink while the frame is inked with walnut stain distress ink. If you scroll down I have two more cards using this die in two totally different styles!

As always there's a lot of fun things going on whenever SSS has a new release: This time A free Thanks die from SSS when you shop!
Use code: THKU894.
This gift is while supplies last.
This promotion will expire on 12/8 at 11:59 pm EST

SSS is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from our blog comment section so be sure to remember to comment (-: . They’ll choose my winner over the next week and post the winner on our Simon Says Stamp store blog on Wednesday, the 11th of December. If you are the lucky one you can email SSS to claim your prize :)

The new BIRTHDAY-WISHES-CIRCLE is a wonderful little die to use either like this on its own on a smaller card or tag - or make a beautiful accent or center window on a larger card. It is super cool as a window for a shaker card too. I have a few more cards in the making using this die - so sweet and useful!!!

I just cant stop making cards with this amazing snowflake die! I love how easy it is to make a card that looks really worked at and so many possibilities with it:

Another favorite from this release is the super cool LINED-YOU-Wafer-Dies - I love it so much I wanted it to shine here and put it  as a center piece (-:  The sentiment is from LOVE-ALWAYS

For my last card I used the beautiful SHIMMER-SNOWFLAKE-Wafer-Die as a frame for a little santa in the woods scene. The trees stamps are from a new SSS favorite set of mine: WOODLAND-WHIMSY - Everything is colored using Copic markers. Sentiment from WINTER-SCENE


If You didn't hop on the 1st - make sure to do so - Amazing inspiration. You*ll find yesterday's hop list HERE

Have a great day, hugs, Karin
