Altered Full Card Dies and Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit Winner

Hi everyone,

I'm back today to announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp May 2014 Card Kit and also to share a couple of cards I made using the recent Mothers and Fathers release from Simon Says Stamp.

First the winner of the card kit is:

Great card! I love the controller and I know just the gamer to use this image for.




These dies are great as is but also lend themselves well to being altered. For my cards today I focused on the largest words in the dies, the 'DAD' and 'MOM', cutting them out to be used on their own.

For the second card I used one of the O's and M's from the Mom die as well as the A from the Dad die to spell Oma (which is dutch for Grandma and what my kids call my Mom). :)



I can't wait to play around with these dies some more to see what else I can come up with.

Oma is the German word for grandmother as well. My mom is Oma to all her great grand kids. My Oma has been gone a long time and it's nice to see people still using the word here in the states. I love how you personalized your card for your mom. Both of your cards are Lovely!!

Love the OMA card! It's also German for Grandma, and is what my kids call my mom. My mom would love this!
