Simon Says Stamp DieCember™ Blog Hop

diecemberhop

Hello there!  I am STUPENDOUSLY honoured and excited to be joining in with this AMAZING blog hop to celebrate the release of 15 fantabulous new dies from Simon Says Stamp.

You should have arrived here from the blog of the gorgeous and talented

Lucy Abrahams

but if you want to go back to the start then just head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

DieCember is HERE folks – and what an amazing line-up of products there are – literally something for everyone.  You can see all the new dies right HERE and can even save time by adding the Kit and Kaboodle bundle and just get everything in one click!!!

Diecember blog hop 2

I have been playing with the “must-have” set of the YEAR – the Large Tags  dies.  If you need to add one set to your collection the I think it must be this one.  The tags are generous in size to stand alone as a gift tag or be used to add a perfect focal point to add to a card.  They also compliment the Medium Tag Dies perfectly!

Diecember blog hop

I started with an A2 standard card base and cut a white panel for the front which I trimmed with some of the Peppermint stripe paper from the 2014 Holiday Card Kit.  On the panel I used a “new-to-me” product that hopped into my latest shopping cart at Simon Says Stamp – these gold leaf sheets and adhesive pen.  I used the Falling Snow stencil as a rough guide for my adhesive “spots” and then once the adhesive had set I added the gold leaf.  It gives an effect like no other gold medium (that I know of) – even embossing powder doesn’t shine quite like this stuff – it may become my latest addiction!  I die cut one of the tags from the Large Tags die set and spritzed it with Heidi Swapp Gold Lame shine spray.  I die-cut the Merry Christmas (from Simon Says Stamp) from gold card and added a red heart cut using the Stitched Shapes die collection.  To finish I added a bow from gold thread.

Simon Says Stamp is offering a fantastic prize for every stop on the hop – just make sure you leave a comment here (and at every blog) to be in with multiple chances of winning!!  The lucky winners will be drawn on 4th December and announced on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

So now I’ve blethered on for what must feel like a lifetime, keep on hopping to the next blog, my lovely friend and amazing designer, Wanda Guess.

Here’s the amazing line up in all it’s glory:

Lucy Abrams 
Caryn Davies (that’s me!)
Wanda Guess 
Lisa Addesa
