Simon Says Stamp | DieCember 2022

Hello there, I am back to share a card and tag with you using a new die set from Simon Says Stamp as part of their DieCember release, which is out now. I am using the fabulous Basic Trio set from CZ Design. I really love the font on these words and as well as the hugs and hello that I am using today, there is also a thanks word in the set too.

I started off my card by die cutting panels of cardstock using the Hero Arts Sentiments Strips Fancy Die. I used the following cardstock - Hero Arts Peony, Hero Arts Azalea, Concord & 9th Buttercup, Hero Arts Mist, Hero Arts Paradise and Hero Arts Adriatic

Once the strips were cut, I adhered them to a panel of Neenah 80lb White Cardstock using Bearly Art Glue. The panel was then die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Privet Brach Die. You can use the negative portion of this panel too, but I thought it was a little bit bright for my CAS taste! 

The privet branch was adhered to a US A2 sized white card base with more Bearly Art Glue. I then die cut the hugs word from the Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Basic Trio Die Set three times and layered them up one on top of each other. It was adhered to the card and then to finish off, I added a few Little Things from Lucy's Cards Bubbles

Of course, I couldn't resist making a tag too! I die cut the Hero Arts Nesting Tag Infinity Die from white cardstock and then adhered the same cardstock strips on top, at an angle, using Bearly Art Glue. I cut off the excess off of the sides and then die cut the hole reinforcer from black cardstock and adhered that on top. 

I die cut the hello word from the Simon Says Stamp CZ Design Basic Trio Die Set three times and stacked them up one on top of another, adhering with Bearly Art Glue. It was adhered to the tag. I also die cut a Simon Says Stamp Mini Heart Die twice, stacked them up and adhered above the hello. To finish off, I added a Little Things from Lucy's Cards Bubbles to the heart and then tied twine through the top of the tag.
