SSS Big Thank You, BIG Sale, and News

Hi everyone!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas! It's been unusually warm in our neck of the woods and we didn't have any snow this Christmas which made Christmas kind of sneak up on us. 

In case you missed it, Simon Says Stamp is having a HUGE sale on all Simon Brand Dies. Be sure to use code DMR943 before January 29th at 11:59 p.m. 

Today I'm sharing a card featuring the beautiful SSS Thank You Swirl Die. I remember when Kristina Werner shared a drawing of this on Instagram I said she had have it made into a die and I'm glad she did! It really packs a punch, is great for clean and simple cards like this one, and would be great for mass producing. 

Before I go I thought I'd give you all a heads up that my time working with the Simon Says Stamp Monthly Card Kit is coming to an end. I thought I'd still be receiving the January Card Kit but maybe not? If I do I'll try and make some cards to share yet. I've really enjoyed working with the Card Kits the past 7 1/2 years, watching them evolve, and sharing my creations with you all. A big thanks to Heidi for this opportunity! 

If I don't have anything to share before the new year all the best for 2020!

SSS Diecember YOU Card Set

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I shared this card featuring the new Simon Says Stamp Lined You Die in a unique way.

Today I'm sharing a card set I made using the die as it was intended. When I make card sets to give away I like to refrain from adding bulky embellishment. The good news is the YOU die is so bold you really don't need to add embellishments. After piecing the YOU diecuts together, I brushed on some Distress Resist Spray to give it a little shine. I added the pieced diecuts to card fronts dressed up with patterned paper and finished them off with sentiments stamped from Simon's You Matter Stamp Set.

SSS Diecember Release!

Hi everyone!

Today is reveal day for the Simon Says Stamp Diecember Release! Yay!

Here is the full release:

These are my absolute favourites:

Simon sent me the new Lined You Die Set to play with and I have a card set to share with you very soon using the full die. For today's post I decided to share a graphic card that only features the 'O' from this die. I diecut the lined O from nine colourful scraps of cardstock and adhered them to a notecard made from Neenah White Cardstock in rainbow order. I then added the circular centers, shifting each colour left by one. I also added some enamal dots to the centers, again shifting each colour left by one. I white heat embossed a sentiment from Simon's Tiny Words Stamp Set on a piece of their Black Cardstock and added it to the center of the card. I'm quite tickled with how this card turned out and plan to make a set of monochromatic/ ombre colours.
