Simon Says Stamp DieCember Release Blog Hop

Hello friends!

warning: heavy photo post

I am super excited to share some projects with the new release from Simon Says Stamp DieCember! This yearly event always make me go WOW! This year is also no exception.
 The die designs just keep getting better and better. Sometimes, I am so inspired by the designs and I have always have fun creating with them.

 Today's blog hop starts from Simon Says Stamp Blog. If you arrive from the fabulous Gayatri Murali, then you are in the right hop. If not, come on down and join the fun hop for inspiration and prizes!! 


Let's get to today's project featuring THREE Dies from this release, shall we?
(all product links are highlighted in colors like this)
My first card is a scene card. I don't create scene cards often, but with the lovely Window Frame Die, I was able to create the scene with Merry and Bright effortlessly.

Happy Christmas

I started out with die-cutting the window and then did the Inlaid DieCutting.
Basically, you die cut each piece out and then fit the piece back to its place like a puzzle.
Once I did that, I started the mask-stamping with the snowman and tress.

I had a hard time to find a proper spot for my sentiment. So, I came up with a solution and added a window sign. "Happy Christmas" now looks like it's written on a chalk board! Yes? 😊
 The "snow effect" was created with White Nuvo Drops

Merry Christmas

I stamped the sentiment Merry Christmas in multi colors with the help of MISTI.

I layered two dies and left the colorful one in tact (without taking the negative dies out).

It is so versatile that I decided to used it on an angle.
I stamped Floral Bliss in Distress Oxide and colored it with Wink of Stella (Clear).

thank you

The Tonic Ivory Bouquet pattern paper and the Border Die are perfect together!
I also added a touch of glitter on top with DCWV Glitter Metallic.
The Tonic Nuvo Golden Sunset Crystal Drops are ideal for adding small droplets of golden goodness.

Oh goody, I was hoping someone would use the window die. Was hoping it was small enough and it is! It looks like just what I've been wanting. Nice job using it BTW! : ) I loved the job you did with the curved die edge as well, very, very nice.

Wow, these are all so cool, but I think my favorite was the multicolored Merry Christmas with the loops. Slightly offsetting the loops was genius; it tied everything together and just made the colors pop more. Thanks so much for sharing such great ideas!
