DieCember® Release Blog Hop - Day 2 | Simon Says Stamp

Hello, crafters!

Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp DieCember® Release Blog Hop! Today’s hop is filled with even more inspiration and, of course, GIVEAWAYS! Every blog on the hop is giving away a $25 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp store, so be sure to comment on each one for a chance to win! There’s also a code for a gift with purchase below! Blog hop line up and giveaway details can be found at the end of this post.


Today, I am featuring two amazing new products: the Mini Slimline Lattice die and the Fine Textured Leaf die. Before beginning, I created a colorful alcohol ink panel using the colors: Salmon, Laguna, and Aquamarine then die-cut the leaves twice.


Next, I die-cut the Mini Slimline Lattice die in white cardstock and adhered it onto a mini slimline card base, then added a few of the negative pieces (squares) with mini glue dots for some added texture and dimension. Once the alcohol panel was dry, I die cut it twice with the large Fine Textured Leaf die and adhered each leaf (mirrored) to the center of the panel. To finish, I stamped and embossed ‘just a note’ from the Beautiful Butterflies stamp set.


Thank you so much for joining me today! Don’t forget to hop along and comment for your chance to win! If you haven’t already done so, make sure to check out the DieCember® gallery, and if you used any of these awesome new products, please add your projects to the gallery!
