Hello, Hello, Hello!

I made three cards using the new "hello" die from Simon Says Stamp!  This die lends itself to simplicity, but ALSO lends itself to a small sentiment tucked in the curves of it's script...
 Just HAD to put a "happy" sentiment in the loop of that "h"...and then the colors to go with it:)!! The "happy" is from a Simon Says Stamp set called Lots of Thanks.  I had used a piece of the  Simon Says Stamp 120lb white cardstock I had purchased in a variety pack of really cool papers...there is even wood veneer in the pack...I LOVE WOOD PAPER...oh I digress...this  white cardstock is amazing...super thick...great for die cutting...looks amazing!!

This one was made with washi tape from Michael's...I think it was supposed to be black, but it clearly looked brown to paired it with a tropical blue card, and positioned towards the lower corner.  The sentiment is from the new set, Sketchy Banner Greetings, stamped in Early Espresso.

I was on a washi tape roll and made another with the tape in black...paired together with a bright yellow card:)!!  The sentiment is cut apart sentiment from the You set from Simon Says Stamp....this one  I chose the middle for the "hello".  Here's a pic of the tapes I used...LOVE washi for it's smaller patterns that look so cool with sentiment dies like this!!...

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa


  1. Three awesome that die cut!

  2. I like all three - question about the washi tape you put the tape down then cut the die?

  3. Great question, Leslie...I put the tape down and THEN die cut. I DO make sure that I put the washi on a thinner white paper and then add a layer or two behind AFTER die cutting(if you want depth), so the washi and paper are not hard to die cut. Thanks for the question:)!! Lisa

    1. Thank you. I have some washi tape but haven't used much yet so I am always looking for inspiration.

  4. You've made great use of that die, Lisa. All three cards are wonderful.

  5. Love the rainbow one! Great use of the hello die :)

  6. Lisa, these are fantastic! I especially love the first rainbow one, but they're all great! I just placed a SSS order, and I'm wishing I'd added this die!

  7. Your cards are spectacular! The stamped sentiments help make the die pop even more.

  8. Wow! Wow! Wow! I love all 3 cards - they are so eye-catching on first glance. I want this die so much - it is so versatile. The first card is so adorable with the "happy" tucked into the loop of the hello. So creative. TFS.


I so appreciate your comments...thank for taking the time to write:)!! Hugs!! Lisa
