Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop!!!

Hi everyone!  Welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp New Dies Hop!  I'm so excited to share a couple cards with you featuring a couple of my FAVORITE dies!  

First up is the Bella Bloom and Circle border.  I wanted to add lots of texture so the circles filled that need, pretty cool eh?

Here's a closer look at the Bella Bloom.  The die has lines in the large petal for you to create a fold.  


Next up is the Fresh Daisy's.
For this card I wanted a Clean and Simple white on white look. YUM!


In this shot you can really see how the edges of the dies curve leaving soft almost embossed like cuts.
So pretty!!!


Now for the really FUN part...I get to GIVEAWAY one of my favorite dies.  I've chosen the Bella Bloom!!!
This contest is now closed.  Thanks for your comments!!!

Ready for more fun and inspiration? 
Hop on over to see what the fabulously talented and adorable  
KELLY PURKEY has created!

Remember if you encounter any broken links on your journey today, you can always head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog for a list of participants.  

Thanks for stopping by!
