Guest Designing for Top Dog Dies (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone,

Today I'm honored to be on the Top Dog Dies blog as a guest designer. Top Dog Dies is a new online store that offers their own brand of wafer-thin and steel-rule dies, along with dies from brands you already know and trust, including Little B, Lawn Fawn, Taylored Expressions, Savvy Stamps and Cheery Lynn Designs. Top Dog Dies is also the leading U.S. retailer for Tattered Lace, a new line of intricate dies designed by British designer Stephanie Weightman.

Before you head over to the Top Dog Dies blog I have a couple of cards to share here on my blog using their Photo Props die set. I thought these dies would be so fun to use to dress up some of the cute critters from Simon Says Stamp's Birthday Farm Animals stamp set. The results crack me up. :)

For the goat, I used the mustache and bow tie dies, coloring them with Spectrum Noir markers and outlining them with a thin black marker.

For the chicken I used the fun glasses and necklace dies, coloring them again with Spectrum Noir markers before adding some Ranger Frosted Lace Stickles. 


Here a sneak at what I'm sharing over on the Top Dog Dies blog:

The winner will receive $50 worth of exclusive dies from Top Dog Dies (their choice!). Enter HERE. Deadline to enter will be Sunday, August 31 at midnight Central Standard Time.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Special thanks to Top Dog Dies and Meagan for having me over today! :)

A Card and Bookmark Using the Simon Says Stamp September 2014 Card Kit (& GIVEAWAY)!

Hi everyone!

I'm back today to share a card and bookmark made using the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit: Life is a Storybook along with the Simon Says Stamp Bookmark it dies.

Here are my projects:

I built my card with some of the October Afternoon Public Library patterned papers and stickers. The patterned paper with a grid of sweet images was the perfect size to use with the Simon Says Stamp Bookmark it die. I added a few of the Teresa Collins Wood Dots to finish things off... 

I also have an extra Simon Says Stamp September 2014 Card Kit to give away thanks to sweet Heidi, owner of Simon Says Stamp! Just leave a comment on any of my September 2014 Card Kit posts by the end of Friday, August 22nd and I'll announce a winner on the 23th. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!
