Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies Week (& a Giveaway)

Hi everyone,

Super sweet Heidi of Simon Says Stamp! contacted me a month or so ago wondering if I had any of the Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies. I had just ordered the Star Border Die to try out but hadn't received it yet. Heidi was so sweet to send me the rest of them to play with and I've decided to dedicate this week on my blog to sharing some cards I've made using these wonderful Simon Says Stamp! dies (which happen to be manufactured by none other then Memory Box). I'll be posting these cards today, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday. Wednesday will be my regular Simon Says Stamp! Challenge card and I hope you'll stop by for that too and join us for the challenge. :)

Here's today's card:


I used the Simon Says Stamp! Circle Border Die and threaded some baker's twine from The Twinery through some of the circles to create this fun rainbow of colour. After stamping the sentiment and rounding the corners I used foam dots to adhere the panel to a white notecard.

Here are the products I used:


I'm so grateful to Heidi for her generosity that I'd thought I'd share some of the love. :) I'll be giving away these two Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies:

All you have to do to win is leave a comment on any (or all) of my Simon Says Stamp! Exclusive Dies posts by Sunday August 19th at 11:59 p.m. I'll post the winner early next week.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Sarah
