DieCember® Blog Hop!

I am thrilled and so excited to be a part of today's Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop over at the Simon Blog, celebrating Simon's latest release, DieCember®!  DieCember® is a registered Simon name for this release, that happens every December 1st, and is a month long celebration of dies and die cutting!  I have used four of the wonderful new birthday dies to make three rainbow colored birthday cards to share with you today!...
Birthday cards are a staple of cardmaking, and this release has some wonderful birthday dies to make some sweet birthday cards!!  This first one, I used the very cool Bunch of Balloons and It's Your Birthday dies.  I used a rainbow of cardstock scraps for the balloons, layered the balloon borders and tucked them behind a layered sentiment.  I used my white gel pen to give accents to the balloons.  I used a piece of polka dotted paper from my large stash of papers for the background.   Here'a a close up...

The second one, I used the sweet Party Candle die to make another rainbow filled birthday card...
 I die cut the candles from a rainbow of cardstock pieces, popped up each candle with sticky foam, and added a stamped, die cut sentiment over them.  I brushed the small flames with my wink of stella brush for some glimmer and shine, and popped up the whole panel on the card.  Here's a close up...

My last card, I made with the cute Birthday Candles die...
I die cut the candles and made their stripes a rainbow.  I layered the candles and used black cardstock for a more striking background.  I used a  couple CZ Design sentiments that I thought went perfectly with these cute candles.  I, again, brushed the candle flames with my wink of stella marker.  Here's a close up...
I've had such great fun making my cards, but the fun is just beginning for you!
Simon is generously giving a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from our comments section, so the more blogs you leave a comment on, the more chances you have to win!  The winners will be posted on the Simon Blog on Wednesday, December 8th, so make sure you check the blog on the 8th, to see if you're a winner!
