For A Happy Couple of Couples!

Happy Monday, folks!  If you are a week-day-only kind of visitor, I want to let you know that I posted two fun cards over the weekend!  One for the Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger and the other for the Avery Elle Challenge.  Don't forget to check them out!



Today, however, I have two cards that are great for an Anniversary!  Actually...one is good for an anniversary OR even a wedding card.  Over the weekend I pulled out my April Simon Says Stamp Card Kit and some super fabulous Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies and went to TOWN!  I had SO much fun playing with these goodies! While the April Card Kit is sold out, you can still order any of the individual items, including the stamps!

Happy Anniversary

For this one I used the gorgeous Danville Wreath Die. I love the detail in this wreath! It is just SO pretty! I decided to cut the wreath into two pieces and use it in a slightly less traditional manner. It brings to mind the feeling of two becoming one, as they are two halves of the same circle. I love that! The stamps on this card are from the Beautiful Words set and the Happy Every Day set.

Happy Anniversary (detail)

For my second card I used the super pretty Ariana Wreath Craft Die. I used both the actual wreath portion, and the inner portion that is cut as a result of cutting the wreath. I love how this creates a 'framed sign' sort of look with the wreath die. SO FUN!

So Happy Together

I also made good use of the Fancy Pants Park Bench 6x6 papers, by trimming a piece for the sentiment on my card. I LOVE papers that are super useful. For reals. Just sayin'.

I have a little tip to offer you today, as well. When using intricate dies have your favorite glue stick handy! You don't want to make a mess, so press the stick against the die, blotting instead of rubbing it over the surface. This will give you a good adhesive coverage. Glue pens are also a good option for intricate die cuts.

ALSO...if you happen to have the Simon Says Stamp April Card Kit there is an opportunity for you to WIN a $25 E-card to Simon Says Stamp! All you have to do is upload your cards, using the kit, to Splitcoast Stampers and use keyword: APRIL2013CK by 30 April! Yup! That's it! Just use your kit and upload your cards! DO IT!
