Friday Focus – Die Cutting #2 (Simon Mothers & Fathers Release Blog Hop)

Happy Friday, all!

Today I am not only continuing my Friday Focus Die Cutting video miniseries, but I’m also taking part in the Simon Says Stamp Mothers & Fathers Release Blog Hop! Lots of fun new stamps, dies, and stencils to play with for you Mother’s Day and Father’s Day cards!

For the release, I designed two stamp sets: Mother’s Day and Father’s Day…

As for my card for today, I got to play with the Star Parade die and the Father’s Day stamp set. To make the card masculine, I used Dark Chocolate cardstock and gold embossing.

Simon is releasing new cardstock and ink colors later this month! Be sure to leave a comment on this blog post (and all the others in the hop) for multiple chances to win two ink pads of the new colors, plus the coordinating cardstock! There will be one winner from each stop on the hop! The giveaway closes at 6pm EST on Thursday April 10, 2014. A complete winners list will be posted on the Simon blog on Friday April 11, 2014.

Get Hopping!

I also wanted to share a couple of my favorite dies from this release. :) …
