Simon Says.........Add a Die Cut

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


Our theme this week is "Add a Die Cut" and who better to showcase than Memory Box?  We'd love to see you using them, too, but you can use anything  you'd like, as long as you follow the theme. 

I chose these sweet Daisy Silhouette dies to use this week

supplies: white and Cornflower cardstock, Memory Box Daisy Silhouette, colored with Zig markers, sentiment from Simon's Sketch Lotus Flowers, oval die and faded jeans and blueprint sketch distress inks, blue gingham ribbon, glue dots

I think gingham and daisies are a perfect match, so I chose some blue ribbon and matched my inks to that.  I pulled up the petals of the daisies, securing them to the card with some glue dots.

And in keeping with my gingham theme, here's another, in happy yellows.

supplies: white, black, desert storm, and front and reverse of a patterned paper from Sunny Studios Classic Gingham pad, Memory Box Daisy Silhouette, mowed lawn distress ink, Paper Smooches Fab Frames, and Simon's Smile Circle dies, Doodlebug sprinkles

It just seemed natural to pair a sunny yellow gingham and it's reverse with my daisies.  To make the flowers stand out better I chose kraft as my card base.  And the perfect sentiment with these happy elements is "smile", don't you agree?

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate 


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!

The blue and white is my favorite, but the yellow one is very pretty, too. Love Memory Box dies!

That bit of gingham on the blue is lovely, and the yellow goes so nicely with the kraft. Lovely cards Lin.

Two beautiful cards with the pretty blue sponged background and the one with the yellow gingham, great designs. Love the daisy die cut and how you have colored them.

Beautiful beautiful cards Lin - especially the blue one - but then I am rather partial to blue, and have been most of my life :)

Dawn T said...

So beautiful Lin. I really like the pop of white daisies against the blended background on the first one and the yellow die cuts on the second one. Gorgeous cards

Lin, when I first started making cards I knew NADA except I had things I wanted to say. I bought a few of these simple dies from Memory Box, and Poppy Stamps. You've reminded me this morning how beautiful they continue to be … two really darling cards! YES to gingham and everything Summer!

Love how you use the same die cut, but looks so different on each card x
