It's DieCember®!!

It's DieCember® over at Simon Says Stamp!!  As you probably know, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, dies!!  This is the month and release that Simon Says Stamp has no stamps, only dies in their release!!  I have used three of the BEAUTIFUL new dies from what I'm calling the Shimmer Collection, to make some cards to share with you , and celebrate this new release!...
 This first card is made using the Shimmer Snowflake...gorgeous die, right?!!  I made all my cards today the same way, so one explanation.  I die cut but did not remove the pieces from one of the die cuts.  I used my Sharpie and Mark It markers to color.  I then adhered a die cut layer over the colored die cut, removing all the die cut pieces.  I added a layer or two behind the two layers of die cuts, depending on how raised I wanted the image.  Here's a close up of the colored snowflake...
I decided to make this beautiful flake into a Christmas ornament, so in mailing, I would add some string, twine, or ribbon, and tell the receipient that they could use the string, poking it through one of the green circles, and the snowflake can be used as an ornament!  I have had people want to use die cuts I send them at Christmas as ornaments, so I am starting to make that option available, before sending.  I love it on a tree...
Then, I used the beautiful Shimmer Wreath to make a Christmas wreath...
 Here's a close up...
Then, with the beautiful flowers in these shimmer dies, I wanted to show you a way that this beautiful flower filled wreath can be used beyond Christmas, and throughout the year...
 I again used my Sharpie and Mark It markers in 12 different colors!
What I love about doing it this way is that you can color outside the lines and when the white die cut is adhered over the colored one, it doesn't look it!!
 I die cut the Birthday sentiment from black cardstock, then used my wink of stella glitter brush, to give the birthday a little sparkle...
 And lastly, I used the Shimmer Butterfly to make a birthday card...
 I used two shades of sharpie markers, black and gray...loving the combo of colors!!  Here's a close up...
OK...this was SERIOUS FUN!!!!  I hope you'll join me, Simon, and a bunch of wonderfully gifted artists as we celebrate this new release with a Blog Hop tomorrow!!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
