Add a Die Cut


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the It Must be Love Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Add A Die Cut  

We are showcasing Penny Black Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Although I do have some Penny Black dies, I wanted to use an image since I haven't coloured up a Penny Black for ages. This doggy is from one of their clear sets called Happy Times and I cut round him leaving a white border so he would stand out from the pattern paper.

The patterned paper is Echo Park Birthday Boy, on the dotty one I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and then used the Wavy Stitched Scallop Border die but cut off the scallops. I then cut the red card twice with the border die. Which I added to the dotty paper and then trimmed round to leave a border.

I cut the stars out of Simon Says Stamp Bundle Stitched Shapes and then stuck them on red card, cut and trimmed round the stars to make a border. I did the same with the Simon says Stamp Stitched Banners but I used the largest tag to cut the end to the length I wanted. Can I say that the way the banner matches the paper underneath wasn't done intentionally mere luck.

Finally I used the fab Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday die but I cut it twice once in red and another in green. Then I overlapped them to give them a bit of shadow and to show up more.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

This PB dog with his bone is a wonderful image and you have coloured it beautifully Debby. I love the green check and spotted backgrounds with the red mats and as a backing to the star embellishments and fishtail sentiment banner. A splendid card. x
