Simon Says Stamp Best Days Blog Hop: Die Cuts Two Ways



Hello Crafters! 

Good Morning and Happy Friday!
and it is happy.
Why?

Well, Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Best Days Blog Hop!
This hop is filled with amazing talent and wonderful new product. 
Who could ask for more, right?
Well there is more! 

Simon Says Stamp is generously giving away a $25 gift card to a random commentor from each stop on the hop! Whoo Hoo! So as you go through make sure you leave a little bit of love along the way. 

Speaking of hopping along you should have come over from my sweet friend Nina-Marie, if you're just stopping by you can head to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to start at the very beginning. 

I've linked the release below so you don't miss one bit of this fantastic release. 




I know, how did I even make a choice. 
Well it was hard but I've been in the mode of trying new things and so I reached for the dies. 
Gasp. I'll wait while you pick yourself up off the floor. 


When I saw the Blooming Circle die I decided to channel the wonderful Laura Bassen and use the negative. 
Gulp.


I used Laura's trick with Press N' Seal to hold all my pieces together while I watercolored them with my distress inks. Then I loved the watercolor background so much I just had to use it!


I already had the watercolor background so I just cut the die again and quickly colored them with my Copic markers before inlaying them into my background. 


I used foam tape on both cards. For the negative die cuts I popped up the tiny flowers and leaves. It definitely took a little bit of time but I can see why Laura does it. The look is really beautiful.  


For this card I inlaid the flowers and leaves flush but then popped up the entire panel with white fun foam. 


The sentiments for both cards are a combination of the new Big Thanks dies and stamps. I can see endless uses for these two! 

You can watch both cards come together and listen to a few tips I learned along the way in the video below. 


Your next stop on the hop my incredibly talented friend Jessica Frost-Ballas. I just know she made something fabulous!

If you get lost along the way here's the entire hop list


Thank you so much for visiting!

Thanks for being here on this fantastic blog hop!
