Hello and welcome to DieCember!! Simon Says Stamp is at it again with another month long fantastic celebration. Today is at the launch of the Simon branded release, but keep watching all month long for collaborations with other companies. Simon brand products will be restocked if they sell out, but collaborations with other brands are gone when they are gone! If you see something you have to have, get it while the getting is good! Find a few of my favorites below and the full release HERE.
The project I am sharing with you features the Simon branded You’re Doing Awesome die. Such a good sentiment for so many occasions!
I began with a slightly smaller than A2 (4″ x 5 1/4″) panel of smooth Bristol paper. I white heat embossed it with Simon’s Plank Background. I then used makeup blending brushes (again, I know. I promise they are sooo good!) and began at the top with Raspberry Jam ink. I took Pale Tomato a bit further and finished out the lightest shade with Cotton Candy. So darn easy with those blending brushes!
I stacked four layers of You’re Doing Awesome together by patting a non-sticky when dry liquid glue onto the back of each with a triangle beauty sponge over scratch paper. Remember those? I just found a stack in my cupboard and thought they’d be great for the craft room, and they are! I used a Versamark pen to color the bottom half of each word and gold glitter heat embossed. I backed the blended panel with dimensional adhesive and then adhered it to a standard A2 folded card base.
Easy peasy and still a standout!
