Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Dies!!

Hey everyone!!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was pretty relaxed after a pretty busy couple of weeks so it was much needed. Today I spent some time creating some cards featuring the new Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies that were released a little while ago. I really love these dies... such great quality and awesome designs! :-)

Oh Happy Day


When I saw this die, I really wanted to create a tone on tone background with it, so that's what I did here. I cut the words out a bunch of times from the Desert Storm cardstock and then glued them all onto a panel of the same colour of cardstock. It took a little while but I love how it turned out - exactly what I envisioned in my head.
Then I just used the same die and paper for the sentiment across the front. I glued 3 of the cut out words together on top of one another to create some dimension and give it a chipboard look. It looks really great in real life.
The butterfly's are punched out of patterned paper and then I added glossy accents on top to give them some shine.

Thank You


For this card, I cut the Fresh Daisies from Neenah solar white cardstock three times and coloured them all the same with Copic markers. I then adhered them to Hero Arts eggshell layering paper. The one on the right is just a single flower and the one on the left is the other two layered on top of each other for dimension.
I added some punched butterfly's and layered everything onto a Hero Arts notecard stamped with the lattice background stamp.
The sentiment is from one of my favourite Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamp sets.

I Believe In You


And for this last card I used the star border die. I love that you get all of these little stars cut out all at once. And you can keep the little cut out stars for confetti! :-)
I diecut the stars out of Neenah solar white and then layered it over a subtle orange polka dot pattern. I then cut out a couple of bigger stars using a Spellbinders die and and added my sentiment banner underneath.

Such awesome quality dies and at a great price! I look forward to creating with the rest of them soon!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
Be back soon! :-)
