Simon Says Stamp

Good afternoon ! Would you believe its that time of the week again !!

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our Glimmer and Sparkle challenge last week, we had lots of beautiful entries and I see lots of you are starting to make your Christmas cards already !

This week our challenge is

DIES and/or PUNCHES 


This week the DT are showcasing the brand new stamps and dies from Simon Says Stamp Exclusives. As always, if you have any of these to use we would love to see them but you can still join us if not !



As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!





We have an extra prize this week !

Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a fabulous pack of Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Dies worth $50 ! Whoo Hooo !




I used the Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Dies,  Absolutely Edge Stamp and Die Set.  I heat embossed the "Awesome" with white embossing powder

The DP's I used are Simple Stories "Awesome"

I die cut the stars using Nestabilities Stars and heat embossed the edges with white embossing powder.

The buttons are from my stash and the twine is by My Mind's Eye.

We hope you can join in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing all your dies and punches !!

I am entering my card into the following challenges :
