DieCember® 2017 BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


Hello everyone! Today we are celebrating the newest Simon Says Stamp DieCember® collection and I'm really happy to have you here! 

¡Hola a todos! Hoy estamos celebrando el lanzamiento de la colección  DieCember® 2017 de Simon Says Stamp y ¡estoy encantada de teneros por aquí!  


CLEAN AND SIMPLE WITH DISTRESS OXIDE INKS


There are so many beautiful dies in this collection it was difficult to choose what to use first. The best thing about them is that you don't need to add much more to create a great card! 

Hay tantos troqueles chulísimos en esta colección que ha sido difícil decidir cuál usar primero. Lo mejor es que los troqueles hacen casi todo el trabajo por ti y no necesitas añadir mucho para tener una tarjeta preciosa :). 





To make these cards I used Distress Oxide Inks on the background and the dies Moon and Star Border, Swirling Star Trail and Far Away Forest Collage. You can watch how I made them in the video below or at my Youtube channel

Para hacer estas tarjetas he usado tintas Distress Oxide para el fondo y los troqueles "Moon and Star Border", "Swirling Star Trail" and "Far Away Forest Collage". Podéis ver cómo las he hecho en el vídeo de aquí abajo o en mi canal de Youtube
