DieCember from Simon Says Stamp

This week there is fun to die over at Simon Says Stamp for the new DieCember release!! So. Many. Dies. ❤

For this card, I used the new CZ Design Friends die. Pretty sure this one will be used often around here! 🙂 I love that it not only cuts the words Friends but it also cuts the backer for the word.

I decided to create a watercolor background using Distress Inks. This is just fun to do and a good break for your brain to just mush colors around. I also then added some wonky stitching and scoring to finish it off. Simple and so fun to make! 🙂

A fun little smile to send to a friend. ❤

Be sure to check out all the new goodies over at Simon Says Stamp for the DieCember release HERE! And just another quick link to the new die I used: CZ Design Friends die.

Thanks for stopping by! Happy crafting!

DIEcember from Simon Says Stamp!

There is a New Release available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE— It’s  DIEcember!! I used the new Filigree Oval Message HERE! It’s a sweet and delicate die to share a sweet message! 😉

I die cut the oval and put some colored patterned paper behind it. I added the sentiment and some stitching. Pretty clean and simple! 🙂

You can swap out the sentiment with many different ones and colors are the limit! This Love Shadow Wafer die is from a previous release of Simon Says Stamp.

A quick recap of new dies from SSS DIEcember die and sentiment die:

DieCember from Simon Says Stamp!

I’m pretty sure the word DieCember from Simon Says Stamp was meant for me! I enjoy a great die and this one I’m sharing today is just that! I could not enjoy this sentiment more. ❤

For this card, I did one of my favorite alllllll time things and cut these strips of paper all up and glued them on some paper. Then I die cut the sentiment die from white cardstock and added that on top. I debated doing an inlay here and then getting two cards from one, but I ended up just putting the sentiment on top to POP!

This is such a great sentiment to give to your kids or your dear friends! Everyone would love to hear this news!  I reverse scored the card panel quite a bit (I can never get enough scoring! 😉 ) and then added everything on top. I finished it off with some stitching. Rainbowtastic!

You can find this die available over at Simon Says Stamp HERE. It’s called: SSS YOU’RE DOING AWESOME Wafer Die for DieCember!

I also used Paper Smooches Postage Stamp dies to give this great sentiment a little frame action. Love the rainbow! I may have said that already. 🙂

Thanks to Simon Says Stamp for having me along to celebrate this DieCember release! ❤ I’m so glad I was able to use this die and share! ❤

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great weekend!

Take care–Jill
