SSS Dream Big BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY

Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Dream Big release Blog Hop! You can check Day one here. Also, make sure you read until the end if you want to know how to participate in a giveaway!

¡Hola a todos! Bienvenidos al segundo día del blog hop celebrando la colección de Simon Says Stamp "Dream Big". Podéis ver el día one aquí. Además, os recomiendo leer hasta el final para conocer todos los detalles y cómo participar en un sorteo. 

ONE STYLE, TWO CARDS



The moment I saw the "Layered Rose Leaves" dies, I knew I wanted to use them to make a pattern, but I also suspected they might be great to create a wreath or a cluster of leaves. So I had to try at least two out of three :). 

En cuanto vi los troqueles "Layerede Rose Leaves", supe que quería usarlos para hacer un patrón, pero también sospechaba que serían genial para crear una corona o un conjunto de hojas. Así que he tenido que probar al menos dos de las tres opciones :).


Making these cards was also quite easy. I simply die-cut the leaves on 4 different shades of blue, arranged them on a white front panel creating a pattern, and doubled one side of the leaves to create dimension. I added silicon drops and a stripe sentiment from the same release. 

Hacer estas tarjetas ha sido muy fácil. Simplemente he troquelado las hojas en 4 tonos diferentes de azul, las he colocado en la tarjeta creando un patrón y he dado relieve a las hojas añadiendo sus respectivas mitades. Por último, he usado gotas de silicona y un sentimiento preimpreso de la misma colección. 



For the second card, I created a cluster instead of a pattern. Added the sentiment in the middle, some silicon hearts, and done!

Para la segunda tarjeta he creado un grupo de hojas en vez de un patrón. He añadido el sentimiento en el medio, unos corazones de silicona ¡y listo!
