Hello and good morning!! September has STAMPtember but December has DieCember!! Simon Says Stamp is kicking off an exciting month with a brand new DieCember release! Here’s a quick look at all the fabulous new products!
I’ve got lots to share this month but I’m starting off with a video and a second card using two of my favorite products from this release: the Big Picture Book Otter and the Deco Heart!
You can watch the video below or at my YouTube channel here.
To start I die-cut the soft navy cardstock using the Tickle Breeze die from a past SSS release! I die-cut it three times to resemble bubbles in a ocean background. Then I die-cut the Big Picture Book Otter using oatmeal cardstock from WPlus9, black, and kraft cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I blended the edges of the otter using tea dye, gathered twigs, ground espresso, and worn lipstick distress oxide inks.
Then I adhered soft navy background over a piece of silver glitter paper. I adhered the otter using foam mounting tape and tucked a die-cut silver glitter Rina snowflake into his paws. Next I stamped the sentiment from Punny Animals onto cotton candy cardstock with versafine and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder. I die-cut it to a thin label using the Sentiment Label dies. Finally, I added a few accents with a white gel pen, spectrum noir clear sparkle, and nuvo crystal glaze.
My second card uses the gorgeous Deco Heart along with an older stamp that coordinates with it perfectly!
I started by stamping the Center Cut Heart background stamp onto white cardstock (with the center removed) with versamark and heat-embossed it with clear embossing powder for a tone on tone look. Then I die-cut the Deco Heart with blue glitter paper. I used liquid adhesive to adhere it to the center of the panel and it fits perfectly!
Then I die-cut the older Kind die with black cardstock three times and adhered them together to form a thicker sentiment. I stamped part of the sentiment from a Tiny Words stamp onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed it with white embossing powder. I used the Sentiment Label dies to die-cut it down to a thin label and then adhered it to the card with foam mounting tape. I used liquid adhesive to adhere the word die and that was it! Super quick to put together and you could use a variety of sentiments or word dies to change up the occasion! I just love how that Deco Heart fits in the center of the background stamp!
And that’s it! I’ll be back to share more Sunday but make sure you shop DieCember soon for the best selection! All the products will be restocked but I have a feeling some are sure to sell out this weekend! 😉
