Simon Says.......Fun with Dies!

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

Our theme this week is Fun with Dies.  The team is playing with our own Simon Says Stamp products this week, and I have 2 cards for you.  

First up, here's a card that uses a brand new snowflake from the DieCember release.

supplies: white, glitter white, and Bristol cardstock, mermaid lagoonpeacock feathers, and lucky clover distress oxide inks, Simon Jewel Snowflake and Holiday Frames dies, Lots of Snowflakes embossed in white, silver sequins

I smooshed an oxide background, then overstamped various sizes of snowflakes.  The panel was attached to a white cardbase, and then I simply added the sentiment frame and a glittery snowflake.

Here's another card, using a mix of dies and stencils.

supplies: white and silver glitter cardstock, Simon's Christmas Gnome Home stencil and Joy die, bow die, pink and aqua inks, Petal Pink Liquid Pearls

This Gnome Home stencil was part of a card kit from 2019, and I hadn't used it yet.  But when I saw the little leaf sprig and dots in it, I decided to try to make a wreath from it.  I started by using a circle die to lightly draw in a circle on my white panel, then repeatedly moved the stencil around the circle.  Then I haphazardly filled in with the single dots.  After matting my panel with silver cardstock and adding the sentiment and bow, I went back in and added some liquid pearls here and there for a little more dimension. I love this modern Christmas color palette of aqua, pink, and silver!

Now it's your turn!  We have a $25.00 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!
