Simon Says... It's Exclusive!

Recently I received a selection of Simon Says Stamp’s exclusive products and WOW! 
I immediately shared the beautiful goodness on Instagram:
I couldn't wait to start playing and as soon as I did, I realized these are THE goodies I never knew I NEEDED!

So, let me show you what I did :)

I was most excited about the little banner dies:

And this "dahlia," which to me looks like a little doily:
After lots of playing and die cutting little bits...
We have this! My other favorite is the "oh Happy Day" die cut. 
These dies are perfection for a non-silhouette crafty person like myself. 
I LOVE the results of all of those delicate shapes from the cameo, but I am so not interested in involving my computer during the crafty process. 
I LOVE my Sizzix and these new dies can give me some of those beautiful results sans the electronics. YAY!
And my next favorite is the "Christmas Tree" stamp and die cut set. But, those look like they could also make a nice accent to a banner, yes?
Ahhhh.... Indeed they do!
That little piece of Disney World ephemera is also layered up and nestled in with some of the die - cut hearts:
Oh yes, let's not forget about that totally awesome Kelly Purkey stamp!
All stamped up and coated in Glossy Accents... it makes a great title!
And stamped repeatedly on the background it gives great dimension:
Likey So! See those delicate hearts there too? I just cut around the negative from a previously cut heart. Gorgeous!
 And now to use that title die again, but with just one of the words:
All layered up with some of the heart stamps that have been applied to tissue paper and sprayed with some Heidi Swapp Gold Lame. How fun is that?!?! I just left all of the hearts on their backing and used them like a large background stamp. Did I mention that all of those heart shapes have matching dies? Love it!
YES! I love hearts! They are the perfect accent for almost any project! But, I am somewhat picky about them. If they don't have enough of a point, they tend to look like apples. Which, can be nice if you are scrapping about fall or the grocery store. But, not so much if you want the true look of hearts. Well, I have good news! The heart set from Simon has the perfect shaped hearts!

So, last but not least, I made myself some little embellishments that I originally found on Pinterest and the original post can be found here. Yep, I completely copied them! They were too awesome not to:
So, there we have it! I will be leaving these dies and stamps out on my desk for a long time, I just know it!

Here are all the aforementioned goodies: (for some strange reason I can't get the cute picture of that KP stamp to show up here... so be sure to click this link to check it out!)
