Welcome to the DieCember™ blog hop with Simon Says Stamp. This is a fabulous new release with 15 brand new wafer thin dies. Today I have a couple of cards featuring the new Balloon Bouquet die.I love how these balloons look as if they are in motion. I wanted to try a really loose look behind the dies using watercolors.
My next card uses various colors of Simon Says Stamp cardstock and a ton of glossy accents.
You can see how cool the glossy accents look here. I added a sentiment from the More Sketchy Banners Greeting set.
Here’s a little video to show you how I created my cards.
Simon Says Stamp has also added a sale category for dies that are 50% off with the coupon code DIES. You can check that out HERE.
Simon Says Stamp is giving away a prize package to one randomly selected winner on each stop of the hop. Leave a comment by December 4th for your chance to win!

Happy DieCember™!!! It’s an exciting day for a fabulous new release with Simon Says Stamp!Today I’m focusing on my favorite new die of the release…the Large Tag dies. I think it’s no secret that I love making tags, and I am just so happy that Simon finally came out their own tag die. These are staples that I will use over and over again. I love them because they allow you to use smaller images effortlessly, you can easily adapt them to fit onto a card if need be and it’s just a fun way to create on a smaller canvas. Here I’ve used them with some of my favorite Simon images….aren’t they so fun? I love tags:)
I added a little bit of ink blending to the bottom just to give a little bit more color. That Simon puppy has always been one of my favorite images, but it is smaller so using him on a tag is the perfect fit!
Since the tag dies are my most favorite thing…and I know you’re gonna love them as much as I do. I’m giving away a set. Leave me a comment for your chance to win a smokin’ hot off the presses new Large Tag die set.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Welcome to my stop on the Operation Write Home Red Friday Bloghop! If you’ve gotten here without starting at the beginning, you’ll want to click HERE
and start from the top. We’re turning “Black Friday” into “Red Friday” by supporting our nation’s heroes!
Operation Write Home
is a charity that sends blank handmade cards to service members deployed overseas. They’ve sent nearly 3 million cards! That’s a lot of letters and love heading home to those who are keeping the home fires burning.
November through February are the slowest months for OWH, and that’s something we as crafters can do something about! We all have a handful of cards in our stash — we don’t even need to take a break from our holiday preparations to just write Operation Write Home on the back and send them in, right? That’ll keep our heroes busy writing home during a long winter away from home.
Be sure to read the information on the Stars and Stamps post
so you send in what’s needed (no Christmas cards, no glitter, A2, etc) – and make a hero’s day by giving them a beautiful creation to write home on!
Since we’re spreadin’ the love today, I thought I’d make a card using the Mosaic Heart stencil with a sentiment from the Sending Happy Thoughts set both by Simon Says Stamp. I mean, nothing spreads the love, in my humble opinion, more than a rainbow ombre heart.
What’s a bloghop without prizes? See the Stars and Stamps post for the full list of goodies by the bloghop sponsors – and go link up YOUR love card there, too! There are prizes for both those who comment on the blogs as well as folks who share their own creation!
Your next stop on the hop is one of my all time favorite card makers, ever….Julie Ebersole.

Hi there! Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends! Today I have the pleasure of sharing a few projects using some products from the Sweet Stamp Shop.This first card uses the cute little Dragon set. I colored the Dragon with Copics and popped him up one the card base. I used my ink blenders to add some fiery hot colors to the bottom corner. I love that cute hash-tag sentiment.
This next card uses the adorable little Guac Love stamp.
I think this cute little guacamole couple & sentiment is so cute together. Even though all of these elements are actually on one single stamp, I was able to separate them using a bit of masking so that I could place them where I wanted on the card.
Be sure to stop by the Sweet Stamp Shop blog to see more. Thanks so much for looking!
Hi there! Today I have the pleasure of joining the very sweet & talented Tracey McNeely for her 25 Tags of Christmas series.I created a shaker tag using several Paper Smooches products. I stamped the adorable snowman couple from Cool Dudes, sentiment from Christmas Sampler and added some Lawn Fawn & Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
