Simon Says Stamp Celebrates Die-Cember!

Hi there!

I've got some fun, new goodies to share with you today. 




I was so excited to receive some of the new dies from Simon Says Stamp to help celebrate Die-Cember! They have 15 new dies, which you can see here. It's a really fun collection with so many different designs!

I got right down to playing and created four cards and a tag to share with you today.



For this first card, I used the Mod Circle Frame Die. The possibilities with this one are endless! I cut it from white, green and blue cardstock and used the inlaid die-cutting technique. So fun! 

My second card was created using the adorable die set called, Cup of Tea.



It comes with the cup, the spoon and a set of three sugar cubes. I cut out the cup from some glitter paper and the spoon from silver metallic paper. The sugar cubes were cut from white cardstock and I layered them four times to create some dimension. Then I added a bit of Frosted Lace Stickles for a some sparkle. Here's a close-up:



Isn't that adorable? Dies sure make it easy to create fun cards!

For my next one, I used the inlaid technique again but this time with the Balloon Bouquet die set.


I used all white cardstock then colored the different pieces of the balloons with my Copic Markers. Adding some shimmer with a Wink of Stella pen makes them even more festive!

And here's another card with a bit of elegance and yes, more sparkle! 




That pretty flower cluster was cut with the Calliope Flourish Die. I layered it with blue and gray cardstock, off-set a bit for a shadow effect. Here's a close-up:




Okay, almost done! I have one more to share. This one is a tag.




The Garden Stems Tag Die is so pretty! The surrounding tag is part of the die, which I think is so awesome! I cut it from silver metallic paper and adhered it to some slate cardstock, which I cut in the same shape as the tag.

I hope you're as excited as I am about Die-Cember! Go check out the whole release here. I have my eye on about four more must haves! So hard to resist!

And don't forget it's Cyber Monday! Simon Says Stamp has a big sale going on too. Lots of other dies are 50% off. You can read all about it here and see this special category of dies here.

I hope everyone has a great week - thank you for stopping by! ♥

I really like the card with the circles, and since I'm a tea drinker I also like the tea cup card. Georgeous!

Hitting myself on the forehead...How did I miss this post yesterday...yikes! You sure did sit right down to play with all of these fabulous new dies! And, I LOVE everything you've created with them, Barb! Your first card is so modern and fun, and your 'Cup of Tea' card is just beautiful! I love all the sparkle and shine and of course the color combo is divine! Love your stitched border on this card, too :) I also love how you colored your balloons and added WOS to give them some shimmer, and how you created such an elegant design with the Calliope Flourish die! Your tag is also amazing, Barb... silver metallic paper paired with slate cardstock is perfection!
