Did you know Simon has card galleries for each of their releases and their card kits, and even a video gallery? It's true and you can add your very own cards and projects to these galleries! Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the new, DIEcember Gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects.



On this first card, I used the, Foil and Cut Die set called, Sketched Rosebud Bundle. It comes with a foil plate and the matching die! Seriously, you guys, I was determined not to start foiling but I couldn't resist after seeing so many beautiful cards with this fun technique! So, I bought a foiling machine and am loving it! After foiling the roses and leaves, I inked them up and love the results!

My next card features the, Kaleidoscope Medallion Die. There are endless possibilities with this one! I decided to keep it simple by just adding some Distress Oxide Ink and a bit of sparkle. 


Next up is the, Birthday Candles Die. This adorable die is so fun to play with! I used some fun, bright colors for a festive card.

On my last card, I used two new dies. The, Dancing Snowflakes Die and the, Just Because Die set. I embossed the background with an older embossing folder. I then added a double layer of the snowflakes die cut, using sparkly silver cardstock, backed in white and offset a bit. I used vellum for the background of the sentiment. Sparkle all the things please!

That's it for my stop on the hop. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products in this awesome release! Enjoy the rest of the hop and thanks for stopping by! I appreciate it so much! ♥
