{You} Are Going to Love This!

Hi bloggers! Happy Saturday to you! Today we're pleased to have guest designer Laura Bassen on our blog with a couple of cool ways on how you can stretch your Simon Says Stamp exclusive dies and stamps!!

From the artist:

I've been so inspired to try the embroidery stitched look on cards, so I gave it a try on one of these. Combining the Amy Tangerine stickers and the "you" from the Envelope Sentiments set was a match made in heaven. I cut the "you" out of the larger sentiment. This way I can get so much more use out of that stamp.
