Simon Says Stamp "Making Spirits Bright" BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the "Making Spirits Bright" Blog Hop! If you haven't seen the newest SSS collection, check it out here! Isn't is super fun?

¡Hola a todos! Bienvenidos al segundo día del blog hop "Making Spirits Bright". Si todavía no habéis visto la última colección de Simon Says Stamp, podéis echar un vistazo aquí. ¿No es super divertida?


FA-LA-LA : A CHRISTMAS CARD



Have you noticed there is a looong list of amazing dies in this release? I like them so much I decided to use three of them to make my card today: "Snowburst Collage", "Picture Book Deer" and " Fa la la".

¿Habéis notado que hay una lista larguísima de troqueles en esta colección? Me gustan tanto que he decidido usar tres de ellos para hacer mi tarjeta: "Snowburst Collage" "Picture Book Deer" y "Fa la la".




To make the background I used the "Snowburst Collage" die three times on a 5 1/2" by 4 1/4" piece of cardstock and added color to it with dye inks. I also die cut the sentiment and positioned it across a frame I created with the "Stitched Rectangles" die.

Para hacer el fondo he usado el troquel "Snowburst Collage" tres veces sobre una cartulina tamaño 5 /2 x 4 1/4 " y le he dado color con tintas. También he troquelado el sentimiento y lo he colocado sobre un marco que he creado con los troqueles "Stitched Rectangles".


That deer is one of the cutest dies I have ever seen! I colored each part with Copic Markers and then put them together on my card. I added Nuvo Crystal Drops to the eyes and Crystal Glaze to the nose. 

Ese ciervo es el troquel más cuqui que he visto en mi vida! He coloreado cada parte con rotuladores Copic y después he juntado las piezas sobre mi tarjeta. Para los ojos he usado Nuvo Crystal Drops y para la nariz Nuvo Crystal Glaze.
