Inlaid Die Cutting + Simon Says Stamp Friends Release Blog Hop

08:00


Hi Crafters,
welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Friends Release Blog Hop featuring the Inlaid die cutting technique! Today I am working with Picture Book dies (there is a whole collection of them!) to create an adorable card that can be used for friends, a child's birthday or even a baby card :) Don't forget to hop along to each blog as Simon Says Stamp is giving away $25 on EACH blog for commenting :) 


I created a video tutorial to show you how to put everything together. All of the dies are one single layer to keep the card nice and thin and light for shipping!


GIVEAWAY! Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 gift certificate for each blog on the hop! So the more you comment, the more chances you have to win! Winners will be announced on Wednesday, January 17th on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

Aren't those critters just adorable!? The Koala, Giraffe and Monkey are just too cute! I need to add a fourth animal so I can give these to my crew at Creativation on Wednesday!

Did you know that Simon Says Stamp has a Gallery for each release? Hundreds of ideas have already been posted about this release! Check it out here!
