Simon Says Stamp DieCember® Blog Hop!


 I am super excited to have been invited to join in with this special DieCember® Blog Hop!! Woo Hoo!! Thanks Heidi and Simon team for sending me some samples and for inviting me along XXX 

You should have arrived here from the lovely and super talented Virginia Lu's blog, if not then you might like to start at the beginning on the Simon Store Blog.

I made 3 cards to share today.

For this first one I used a gorgeous Stitched Window Frame Die along with a Loop The Loop Border Die and a Stitched Wimbly Borders Die 


I also used a Christmas Squad Clear Stamp Set and Doodlebug Milk and Cookies Papers  that were in the December Card Kit 


For my next card I used a beautiful new Big Joy Snowflake Die


I used a Stitched Circle Die to cut the aperture and then fixed some acetate behind it. I popped the whole panel on 3D foam above a panel of Silver Glitter Paper and affixed the snowflake the centre. I silver heat embossed the sentiment which is from a On A String Stamp Set 


and I finished the inside with a Merry from a Merry And Bright Die Set


For my third and final card I used a new 'Oh Hello There' Die Set and Stitched Wimbly Borders Die 


I used a Brush Stroke Messages Stamp Set and Distress Oxide Ink Pads, Spiced Marmalade, Candied Apple and Worn Lipstick. After stamping I then spritzed and splattered with water and Dylusions Black Marble Ink. 


and I finished the inside. 




There is a $25 voucher to give away on my blog!! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post! 


This was the last stop on the hop, from here please go the Simon Store Blog to leave a comment  and then head on over to the  Simon Says Stamp Store  and treat yourself to some goodies!! ;-)
