SSS Diecember® Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp DieCember® Blog Hop! The fun starts at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. If you've been following along you should be arriving here from the blog of my sweet and talented friend, Barb Engler. Be sure to comment at all the stops as Simon is giving away a $25 coupon at each stop!


The full Diecember® Release can be found HERE:



I'm sharing a couple of cards today, both featuring Simon's new Sensational Snowflakes Die. Here they are:




For my first card I used the Sensational Snowflakes Die to create a fun shaker card. I die cut a piece of Neenah White Cardstock and backed it with a piece of acetate from Hero Arts. I built up the back of the cardstock with foam tape, being sure that none of it would show through and that the added sequins would be completely trapped inside. The sequins are a mix of Lucy's Cards and some other sequins I had on hand. Once backed with my notecard, I added a white heat embossed sentiment. (Supplies used are listed at the end of the blog post).



For my second card I cut out multiple snowflakes and added them to a background inked up with Distress Oxide Inks, splattered with water, and spirtzed with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spray. I added a piece of vellum cut using Simon's Wonky Rectangles to tone down the colour behind the greeting. The sentiment is cut from Simon's Black Cardstock using their Merry and Bright die set and was coloured with a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.

In case you missed it, I shared this card on my blog yesterday featuring Simon's new Evergreen Circle Die:


Supplies with affiliate links at no extra cost to you:



The last stop on the hop today is the fabulous Anna Kossakovskaya. Be sure to visit Simon's blog again tomorrow for ANOTHER fun blog hop!

Thanks for stopping by!
