Simon Says Stamp NEW DIES blog hop PLUS GIVEAWAY!!!!


Carol L who said   Wow! The text background with that great dahlia and pop of turquoise looks fabulous!! I’m already wild about the hexagon border, and I love the great look it gives to this card! 

For my first official post as a design team member for the Simon Says Stamp weekly challenge, please scroll down!

HELLO HOPPERS! Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp DIES blog hop!!! You should have come to me by way of the fabulous Kristina Werner!

Unless you live under a rock, you guys know by now that the amazing Simon Says Stamp now carries their very own line of dies!!! They are awesome. 100% steel, high quality dies…..  There are 11 fabulous designs to choose from….. I used three dies in my card today: Delicate Dahlia, Outline Dahlia and Hexagon Border… 

I found some gorgeous patterned paper in my stash and die cut the Delicate Dahlia image. Simon Says Stamp also carries an Outline Dahlia die cut, which is optional to use with the Delicate Dahlia image or on its own. I chose to pair them together to add some color to the project….  I spritzed the Outline Dahlia with Mister Huey’s mister and Distress inks. I LOVE the hexagon border! I thought a simple strip of the hexagon pattern paired with the pattern Dahlia would look lovely together against the text background. I wanted to keep the card very simple so you can see how gorgeous these dies really are…. I have a Cuttlebug machine, but these does will work with any die cutting machine…..

It’s GIVEAWAY TIME!!!!! Isn’t Heidi and the gals over at Simon Says Stamp the best????  I get to give away one of the dies here on my blog! How about Delicate Dahlia???? Just leave a comment on my blog by Friday at 11:59PM EST, and I’ll choose a winner via and you could win Delicate Dahlia!!!

Here is a quick video showing you all of the dies available:
