SSS DIEcember Hop - Oh Hello There



Good morning! Happy December - or should I say DIEcember? Yes - it is officially the month that Simon Says Stamp celebrates die cutting! There is a FABULOUS new release - packed full of lots of NEW dies, and also some fabulous new glitter paper! I'm excited to be participating today in day 1 of a fabulous 2 day Blog Hop to celebrate - with giveaways and inspiration at every stop along the way!


I decided to make a card using entire die cuts - and was able to use two of the new die sets I received, paired up with a couple dies from previous releases! I started off with one of the Nested Talk Bubble Dies, and die cut the one that would fit the fun new Oh Hello There Wafer Dies. I die cut it from dark chocolate cardstock, and the words from white cardstock.


I added the adorable Picture Book Monkey to the bottom - layered together and with a bit of Copic and white gel pen accents - on a piece of white cardstock cut with Drifting Stitches Borders. Used foam adhesive to adhere some of the layers together, added some jute twine tied around the bottom, and then covered the words with Tonic Crystal Glaze to help them pop a bit more!


GIVEAWAY INFO: Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon at every stop along the hop - so make sure and leave some love as you hop along for a chance to win! Winners will be announced next Wednesday on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

Now - here is the entire blog hop line-up so you don't miss a single stop:
