Simon Says Stamp DieCember® Release Blog Hop!


Happy DieCember®!!  December is the month that Simon Says Stamp's release is simply made up of dies, and Simon, being the amazing company it is, has actually registered the name of this release, DieCember®!!  Today, I am so thrilled to join a number of creative and talented artists, to showcase and celebrate this new release, via this Blog Hop!!  I have chosen a couple word dies with "you" being the main intent of both these amazing dies...oh, and yes, made with rainbows:)!!...
This first one, I chose the very cool Lined You die, and made the strips in each letter a simple colorful rainbow.  I used the die cut letters without the strips taken out as the base.  I then put tombow adhesive all over them, and next put another die cut over the adhesived one, this one with the strips REMOVED.  I then die cut four different colors of each letter and took strips from each colored die cut letter , placing them into each letter, to make a rainbow.  I popped up a panel with the shadow of the "YOU" die cut from it.  I used a black panel at the base of the letters and used a sentiment below the "YOU".  Here's a close up...
The second one, I used the very cool new The World Needs die to make a rainbow filled card of encouragement...
 I used 1/2" strips of striped patterned papers, adhering them to a thin cardstock.  I die cut the World Needs die from the strips, then layered and adhered them to an also layered set of shadow die cuts cut in black.  I used the You Matter background stamp to give some "backup", words of encouragement sentiments to this very cool sentiment die!  Here's a close up...
OK...my fun is above, your fun is below!
