DieCember® is Here!!

Simon Says Stamp's amazing, annual, December release is out today, DieCember®...a release named for and filled with, you probably guessed it...DIES!!  For those of you who know me, I LOVE dies!!  I have made a card to share with you today, that uses three of the new dies from this release...
My mom LOVED sunflowers!!  My daughter's flowers when she was married were sunflowers!  So, it seemed only fitting that I would start the celebration of this new release using the beautiful new Sunflower Petals die set!  I had so much fun putting this beautiful sunflower together.  I started with the round outside circle from the set and put adhesive all over the circle.  Then I placed twelve die cut petals all around the base.  I die cut the petals from three different shades of paint chips...one of the colors was actually sunflower! Here is a pic...
Then I put some adhesive on each of the next 12 petals and adhered them inbetween the first twelve...
You'll notice that the core of the sunflower's piece has little "spikes"...don't know what else to call them, but I used my exacto knife and pushed each of them out.  I layered the center and used some thick glue dots to adhere to the petals...
I used the pretty new Detail Bohemian Plate for the background and the new CZ Design Hello die for the sentiment.  Here's another close up...
This is one wonderful release, hoping you will join me tomorrow for the first of two days of blog hops on the Simon Blog, to celebrate this release...it is sure to be filled with LOTS of inspiration using the new products from this amazing new release!!  
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
