Simon Says Stamp | DieCember 2021

Hello there and happy DieCember to you! Yes, it is that time of year again where Simon Says Stamp celebrate all things dies and die cutting. There will be fun things happening throughout the month but today sees the main DieCember release. For my cards today, I am using the new Privet Branch Die. 

PLEASE NOTE: This post contains affiliate links. Please see below for my full disclosure.

I started off my cards by getting inky. I took sheets of Tim Holtz Woodgrain Distress Cardstock and placed them in my Splat Box. I then sprayed them with lots of different Distress Spray Stains. I will be honest with you, I was playing about so I am not 100% sure of the combination but these panels did use Shaded Lilac, Wilted Violet, Villainous Potion, Mermaid Lagoon and Chipped Sapphire. I also spritzed them with Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz before setting them aside to dry. 

Whilst they were drying, I die cut the new Simon Says Stamp Privet Branch Die multiple times from white cardstock with double-sided adhesive sheet on the back. For the first card, I die cut one of the inked panels using a Hero Arts Nesting Circle Infinity Die. I also used a larger die to emboss this on to an A2 white card base. 

The inked panel was added on top with tape runner. I then added on one layer of the Privet Branch on top, followed by another two layers, so that it was three layers high. I added on two Simon Says Stamp Reverse Sentiment Strips Birthday sentiments on top (cut using the Simon Says Stamp Sentiment Labels Dies) with foam tape. To finish off, I added Little Things from Lucy's Cards Bubbles

For my next card, I die cut one of the inked panels with the Simon Says Stamp Privet Branch Die. I also cut it another three times from white cardstock with the adhesive sheet on the back. They were layered up on to a white A2 card base and the excess cut off the top. 

I die cut another two Simon Says Stamp Reverse Sentiment Strips Birthday sentiments and added them on with foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Bubbles.
