Embossing to Color

I have made a couple cards with two of the cool new dies by Simon Says Stamp from their DieCember® release...
The first one, I used the Mini Slimline Lattice die.  I wanted a rainbow underneath the pretty lattice, so I embossed the lattice on a piece of cardstock, and used my blender brush and some of the new Simon Pawsitively saturated inks and got to work.  Embossing the die, made following the lines of the lattice so easy!...
I die cut the lattice twice more, adhered them together, then to the colored piece, and then to the card.  I used the CZ Design Thanks die for my sentiment, layered and adhered to the bottom corner...done!  Here's a close up...

The second one, much like the first...
For this card, I used the cool Triangle Burst Medallion die!  I didn't clic a pic of the initial embossed inking, but I did it just like the first, embossing the die on cardstock, and blending the ink for this one, based on the circular design of the triangles.  I then die cut the medallion, and adhered one die cut on the bottom, and two layers on top of the colored piece.  Here's a pic of before adhering the die cuts on top...
I used a Simon sentiment strip for the sentiment, and added some Tonic drops for some added bling...
Had some real fun making these cards...hope you find some fun today!!  Thanks for stopping by today!! Huge hugs!! Lisa
