SSS-Diecember® blog hop

diecember-release_blog-hop-01Hello there! Today I’m very excited to join Simon Says Stamp along with several talented designers in a hop to showcase the awesome new Diecember® release.
SSS-Bear Hugs & Circle LeavesMy first project features the adorable Bear Hugs die. I die cut several pieces of felt and created a bear felt banner. In rainbow order, of course:) I adhered the bears with glossy accents.
SSS-Bear Hugs & Handlettered GreetingsI added a sentiment using one of the Handlettered Greetings dies with Fog cardstock. I used spray adhesive to adhere it to the card.
SSS-Bear Hugs & Handlettered GreetingsI had a bunch of colorful little felt hearts left over from die cutting the Bear Hugs and used them on this next card.
SSS-Circle Leaves & Missing YouThis card features the gorgeous Circle Leaves die with Cream Off cardstock. I added a sentiment using one of the new Missing You dies with Sea Glass yardstick. Two cards made solely with dies!!! So fun! These new Diecember® dies are fantastic!

  1. Laura, your card with the rainbow of bears is so CUTE, it makes me want to have a baby just to received it ….. ha ha (I’m really too old for that).

  2. Two gorgeous card Laura. I always love to see multi colors. It makes me smile. And using scraps on other cards is something I need to learn to do more often. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Gorgeous cards today Laura!! Lots of fun dies in this release. Oh, and ‘Sea Glass .’??? Gotta love auto-correct. 😉

  4. Oh my goodness…such a sweet card…all those little bears. So adorable. And I loved the circle leaves die with the teeny heart leftovers as embellishments. A very classy card. I also love your creativity. So impressive. These dies are all gorgeous…wish I could get them all…but I have to say it’s your creativity that’s so inspiring. (hmmm, I have a new grandson due in January).

  5. Ooooh, a felt bear banner…. adorable. I smiled at how you got your rainbow in there! So clever. Also like the die cut word overhanging in the circle leaves die (with hearts!!!).

  6. OH my goodness I LOVE your baby card!!!! I have my first grandchild arriving in February so this sure made me smile:)

  7. How do you do that? You take these simple dies and turn them into something spectacular. The rainbow of felt bears is just so adorable and the Circle Of Leaves die was already a favorite before I saw your amazing design. It just makes me want it more 🙂

  8. Your bear card is just adorable! The Circle of Leaves has so many possibilities – lovely card. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Such great cards, Laura!! The bear banners are so delightful and unexpected, a really clever idea.And the circle leaf card is CAS perfection! Love these new SSS dies.

  11. Ohmigosh! Those bears are just precious! I’m a sucker for a cute rainbow colored card and those bunnies and bears are my very favorite in this release!

  12. What fabulous cards! That bear banner card is so cute and colourful and I am in love with that Circle die! It’s so pretty.

  13. OMG! Gotta have Bear Hugs — want to make rainbow cards for my granddaughter who really appreciates rainbows!!! and coloring of welcome baby lettering is so striking. It really pops the card. Love the hearts on the second card, too. Would love to be a winner!

  14. Awww Laura, BOTH of your cards are beautiful! I love the felt bears and the ‘missing you’ card is so elegant. (Love the touch of rainbow colours going on on both cards!

  15. Super cute! I especially love the rainbow colors and that you used up the leftover hearts to create another card!

  16. I love your cards. I really appreciate that you made non-typical cards (not birthday, Christmas. Thank you, etc.).

  17. So cute. Love that you did it with felt, and adding the cut-out hearts to the second card really added something extra special. I really like the circle leaves die. It could be used for most any sentiment! Thanks so much.

  18. Two fabulous cards. The first one is so “soft” and perfect for a baby. And the other one is really elegant. I love both of them.

  19. Two wonderful cards. I am always partial to clean cards with gorgeous shapes and colors. You have mastered all of that (and more).

  20. I absolutely love these card samples. The Circles Leaves die is my favorite of diecember but the bear card is super cute too. thank you so much for sharing.

  21. Those cards are absolutely adorable…I love the use of the felt!!!! Thank you for sharing your talent and time:)))

  22. Just purchased the adorable bear (and a couple of other dies)! Laura, you are such an inspiration and I will be making a beautiful baby card for my daughter who is due in March.

  23. The second card would have been great on its own, I love that you used ” waste”from the first cartoon Hantz the second card very inspirational. Thank you.

  24. Love your ideas and the rainbow color that you create. You are always so creative. The bear hug dies is so cute, Can’t wait to have my hands on it

  25. The “missing you” card is so serene……expresses the sentiment exactly! The colorful felt teddy bears are so cute and so much fun…..just right to welcome a little one!

  26. That is absolutely the most perfect card to welcome a new baby. Sweet little teddies all in a beautiful rainbow row!

  27. Wow…what a beautiful baby card just loved the colorful bears. They are so cute and adorable!!! Thanks for your inspiration!

  28. I love both of your cards; they are lovely. And I really like the idea that both are just die cuts. Great inspiration.

  29. Oh Laura, I love both cards!! The baby card is just precious!! Love the circle leaves die card, and the hearts are amazing 😉!!

  30. Adorable baby card and I like how you used the hears from the bear die to the circle of leaves cards. Wonderful job. TFS

  31. The Missing You card is so delicate looking! While I enjoy stamping, sometimes I just make cards using my dies…I want them to earn their keep:>

  32. You are right – these two dies are great. I love the way you saved the “leftovers” from the first cards for the second card. I an so frugal, I save every scrap, etc, and use it later, si tis really touched me.

  33. Brilliant use of the tiny teddies Laura! I had no idea what they were for. Love that you made use of their tiny hearts on your other lovely cards too!

  34. You always have a unique take on things! Love the bears, never would have thought to use them that way ! And the floral die card is beautiful of course ! Thank you for sharing!

  35. Cute baby card, but I LOVE the Circle Leaves card. It’s a clean design. The colored accent pieces really pop yet it continues to let the die also be a main focal point. Beautiful!

  36. Really like both cards. I can just see the felt-cut baby card becoming a framed wall hanging in a nursery–so colorful.

  37. Two fabulous cards, as always, Laura! Thanks for making me smile with your darling baby card, and I love how you played with the tiny hearts…so sweet!

  38. Laura – your card using the circle leaves die is absolutely beautiful. It makes me I’m going to have to break down and actually get something for myself this year (Santa has a mind of his own)!

  39. Love the way you popped color into the Circle leaf die with the bear hearts! My grandmother who never wasted anything would be proud of you!

  40. Wow! You created not one, but TWO, gorgeous cards using only dies and a touch of color! Amazing! I am in awe of your skill and creativity. You have shown you don’t have to have dozens of things to make something really remarkable, just some great basics like these new SSS dies can be enough to make a cool card.

  41. The baby card is cute but I love your missing you card it is so simple yet elegant and with a hint of color makes it so pretty

  42. I love the bears they are so cute. Needed them a couple of months ago, but now I’ll know where to find them. Thank you

  43. Wonderful cards.
    I love that circle leaves die as well as the sentiments.
    Thanks for sharing and lending the inspiration.

  44. OMG – after seeing all the inspiration, my wish list will grow and grow. Love the circle die cut – and those little bears …. too cute!

  45. That sweet bear caught my eye as soon I as saw the new release and after seeing the sweet card you created with it there is no doubt that I must have it! I love that you used the extra little hearts on your second card. Such a fun touch!

  46. I wasn’t really impressed with the felt ideas until I saw your card with the bear banner! So cute for a baby shower card. And I am loving the Circle leaves die.

  47. I love incorporating felt die cuts such as these! I think matching the bear hug die with the “welcome baby” one was just perfect, too. Oh, and all the colors..!! Loved both cards very much!

  48. Seriously?!? you took the hearts from the bears and did amazing things with them! I absolutely love the way you hit it out of the park on these two.

  49. Very creative cards Laura! You used my favorite die from this release, which is the circle leaves die. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us. Merry Christmas!

  50. Love the bears! Great idea to use the colored felt. And I love that you used the hearts for your next card. Fabulous!

  51. The card with the bears is so cute and the missing you card is classic and clean! They are both wonderful and I love how you used the hearts from the bears to make another card!

  52. the little bears are very cute! but that circle leaves die will be mine! i love shaker cards and this would be perfect!

  53. I just made a baby card for a friend and sure could have used the felt huggy bears and the “welcome baby” sentiment! I like this card soooo much better with the cute bears:)

  54. Love these cards Laura! Those little bears in felt are adorable! Need to find a felt sale now! I think that circle leaf die is one of my faves in this release. I can think of so many ways to use it! Thanks for sharing….just love everything you do!

  55. Seeing your cards made me think of 2 things. 1/ I wanna cut felt right now although it is late night here 2/I wish I ordered that leaf die…but I didn’t. Bad for me. Next time 🙂 Hugs to you from Budapest, Zsofi

  56. those bears are precious. I would love to get
    all of the felt – have to save up my pennies to
    get them all, would be too hard to pick out just
    a few colors.
    the other card with just small pops of color
    is wonderful too.
    thanks for sharing.

  57. Oh these cards are absolutely lovely and cute. Those little die cut bears have to be the cutest thing. Thanks for sharing.

    Linda D.

  58. Gorgeous cards! The felt bears are so sweet and cuddly, the texture adds so much 🙂 I also love how you used the hearts o the second card – that die is so beautiful and the colorful add just enough color, so pretty! Thanks so much for sharing these ideas 🙂

  59. I don’t usually like felt images but I love them on the adorable baby card. My favorite of the cards is the second. I love the circular window with the foliage attached. Beautiful.

  60. These 2 are both awesome! love the cute bears done in felt, especially the rainbow order. The Circle die is so beautiful! Love the simplicity of your card. Another must have!!

  61. The welcome baby card is so cute! Those little bears are adorable and I love all the colors! But I think my favorite die from this collection is the Circle Leaves die! It looks stunning in the neutral colors with just a pop of color from the sentiment! Very cool to see cards entirely from dies!

  62. Gaaa! cuteness overload!! Those wee bears are too stinkin’ cute by themselves, but you really maxed out their cuteness on this card!!! Of course the other card is lovely and I like how you used the hearts from the bears, but I’ll say it again… Those bears are fabulous!!d

  63. Already thinking of ways to use these dies, but I love the inspiration from the blog hop. Love the circle leaves dies!

  64. These are awesome! I love your rainbow cards, thru always cheer me up and I’m needing a lot of cheering up these days!

  65. Cute! I really wasn’t that crazy about the bunny and bear until I saw the banners, now I can see LOTS of possibilities! May have to rethink my favorites now!

  66. I wasn’t drawn to the bear die at all. Of course, with your rainbow magic, I need it now…and felt too! You always inspire me.

  67. SO MANY possibilities with the circle leaves die …. I can’t wait to try a few. Fantastic layout with the little bears …. thanks for sharing.

  68. Great cards! The rainbow garland made with those cute felt bears is adorable. I also really like your clean and simple missing you card. The little hearts are a great addition. Thanks for sharing!
