It's Monday! And, that means it's time for another challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog. YAY!
This week we are putting our die cuts to use. Whether you use a die cutting machine, paper punch, pre-made die-cut shapes or stickers, or have your own twist on the challenge we encourage you to join us.
I took this opportunity to put some of my favorite and exclusive Simon Says Stamp dies to use. Here I have my photo and my favorite dies pulled:
A quick run through my Sizzix with some white cardstock...
And then it's time to layer!
I like the direction this is headed, but I do think the background could use a little customization...
Followed by some white paint:
And glitter, of course!
A final touch of gold mist and I am ready to adhere all of my little hearts and such. I am simply using Matte Medium here...
See how they are all curled up? That happens while the Matte Medium dries. Don't worry - they will flatten back down.
Ah yes - lookin' good!
Title all layered up:
All the extra bits added...
And there we have it! A layout all about my happy girl:
I had more fun combining all of my favorite dies into one layout!
I can't wait to see what you do this week!
