SSS DieCember Release Blog Hop!

Hey everyone!

Welcome to my blog! I'm excited to be a part of the Simon Says Stamp's DieCember release blog hop!


If you've arrived here from the talented Heather Hoffman's blog, Houses Built of Cards, you're in the right place. If you'd like to start at the beginning of the hop, head to Simon's blog here. It's a two-day hop, so be sure to visit Simon's blog again tomorrow for more fabulous inspiration!

PRIZES!!!
Simon will be giving away a $25 Gift Certificate for every stop on the hop from the blog comment sections! Yay! They'll randomly choose the winners over the weekend and will post them on their blog on Wednesday!

Products from the release, along with other supplies used on my cards, are listed below in the affiliate links, at no extra cost to you.

I was sent some really fun dies to play with and I actually used four of them on ONE card - **fist pump!** I'll share that one in a minute but first up is a card using the cute, Loop the Loop Border Die.



Every once in awhile, I like to change it up and create a square card - just for fun. I cut all the loops from white cardstock, then quickly colored them with different Copic markers. So easy to do! (You could definitely cut them from colored cardstock too.) Then I just adhered them, evenly spaced at an angle, to the card base, added the sentiment from an older Simon set and called it done. A simple, happy and bright birthday card.

My second card is very clean and simple too but I love it!



That is the wonderful, new, "Oh, Hello There" die! I used the inlaid die-cutting technique on Simon's Fog Cardstock and also cut around the panel with one of their, Stitched Rectangle dies. To finish it off, I added a few little hearts. 

Okay, here's the card I created using four of the new dies.



That, "Picture Book Secret Penguin" is soooo cute, isn't he? And you should recognize the Loop the Loop Border die from my first card above. Just another way to use it - it's so versatile! Another die I used on this card is the "Script Hello," which comes with both the word and outline. Love it! I also used one of the dies that comes in the, "Nested Talk Bubbles" die set. There are six different sizes of talk bubbles included in that set! Gonna be using those a lot!

Okay, that's it for me. Next up in the hop is my sweet, talented friend, Sarah at her blog, My Impressions.

Enjoy the rest of today's hop (and tomorrow's too!) Thanks for stopping by! ♥
