Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies - Day 4

Hi everyone,

Welcome back! Today is the final day of my week highlighting some of the wonderful Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies and some fun things you can do with them. In case you missed it, I'm also giving away 2 dies provided by sweet Heidi of Simon Says Stamp! Here's THE POST with the giveaway details.

Here's today's card:


For today's card I used Simon Says Stamp! Bella Bloom Die. I die cut the medium-sized flower repeatedly and adhered the flowers to the same colour of cardstock to create a faux dry embossed look. I then die cut the flower twice using some patterned paper to create a focal flower. The leaves were created using the flower die as well using a technique I picked up from Jennifer McGuire.

Here's what I used to make the card:


Thanks for popping by once again this week. I so appreciate it! Remember you have until Sunday August 19th at 11:59 p.m. to comment on any of my Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Die posts for your chance to win two dies of your own.

this is beautiful. I had to look twice to see that it wasn't really dry embossed! Amazing how you got all those flowers on there so evenly.

Beautiful! I have not seen the bloom die before. I love how you embossed the background, the colors are so pretty! PS-I just got an email with your last ~50 posts! It was a list, clearly blogger was having some issues with the email feature. Glad it's working now!!
