WELCOME to the Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop!!
I am SO super-duper-jumping-out-of-my-skin-with-excitement happy to be here today!!!
I hope you've been enjoying the hop, I know I have! If this is your first stop, then feel free to go back to the start HERE (at the Simon Says Stamp blog) so that you can see everyone who is involved in this fun event. (psst, be sure to read all the way to the bottom for a chance at a GIVEAWAY!!)
SO obviously by now you all are aware that Simon Says Stamp have released their very own line of steel dies!!! They. Are. GORGEOUS.
I made two projects for you today, and a video showing you how the second one (a layout) was put together.
Here is my first project, using both the Star Border die and the Brilliant and Strong dies
To make the 'Brilliant' diecut stand out (even more), I cut it three times. The bottom layer, I coloured in with BG10 copic marker (to create a 'drop-shadow'), the next two were white cardstock, but the very top layer, I covered in Stardust Stickles :) SO pretty.
Here you can see the shimmer and dimension--up close, it looks just like a store bought embellishment rather than paper!
For my second project (I couldn't stop at one...) I made a layout. As soon as I saw the Brilliant, Strong, Anything words, I knew what I wanted to do.
here is the layout for you--
I made a (fairly quick :)) video showing you how the whole layout came together!
Well that's it from me for today--I could have made at least another TEN projects using these dies just off the top of my head, but thought I'd better let you get going onto the next person on the hop!
Don't forget to leave a comment, because one lucky reader will be randomly drawn to receive my favourite die, the STAR BORDER! How amazing is Heidi for offering up a prize PER blog on this hop?! She's a star!! (teehee, couldn't help myself)
Once you're done commenting, please go straight over to the beautiful Lorraine's blog, to see what amazing project she created!
Thank you so much for visiting!
sending you crafty smiles :)
