Simon Says........More than One Die or Punch


Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is "More than One Die or Punch", and my teamies and I are playing with Memory Box products!

First up, a card that combines 2 of my favorite things, hearts and wreaths, in one die:

supplies: white cardstock, Memory Box Heart Party Circle, My Favorite Things Thanks die, Zig watercolor markers and water, Simon Stitched Rectangle die, Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares

After cutting each of my dies, I left them in the scrap of cardstock and watercolored them, using an ombre effect on the sentiment.  Then I popped them out and attached them to my stitched rectangle.  The tiny hearts are pop-outs from the wreath.

My next card uses a fairly new butterly die, paired with a set of pinpoint rectangle dies:

supplies: white, Simon orange peel,  sunshine, and black cardstock, Memory Box Flickering Butterfly Collage and Pinpoint Rectangle dies, sentiment from Simon's Happy Every Day set, retired

For this one, I cut the butterfly 3 times, from black, sunshine, and orange peel cardstocks.  I fussy cut the black one out, attached it to my white background, and then paper-pieced the gold and orange details into it.  I also framed the panel with the same colors, using 2 other sizes of the pinpoint rectangle dies.  To finish I added a sentiment banner embossed in white on black.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher
