Simon Says Challenge - Dies and Punches

What a beautiful, sunny Autumnal morning this morning. It was a fantastic walk to school this morning, I love Autumn mornings

It's Wednesday again and time for another Simon Says Challenge.

This week, our challenge is to use die and/or punches in your projects.

The DT have all used My Favorite Things Stamps and/or Die-namics Dies on their creations. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them why not dig them out and use them

The lucky winner will of course win that super duper $50 spending spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store ! Thank's again Heidi for being so generous.

The DP's I used are from the fantastic Echo Park kit called "Merry Christmas" and Basic Grey "Manila" and they have all been machine stitched.

I used the MFT Notebook Edge die on the manila paper and inked it with vintage photo distress ink.

The tag was made from the MFT set called "Tag You're It" which is a fantastic set which includes both stamps and the tag die. There are loads of stamps to choose from in this set, its very versatile.

The sprig of holly I punched using a Martha Stewart holly punch and I used little red pearls for the berries.

I used coloured Memento Ink too which makes a nice change from black. Simon Says Stamp set all the little dew drop ink pads and these are fantastic !

The ribbon, snowflakes and button are from my stash.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing your projects using dies and/or punches.

I am entering my card into the following challenges :
