Two Grid Border Cards

A couple cards to share made with the new Simon Says Stamp Grid Border Die...
I found a game app called Stone Flood...so much fun for me...and so makes me think of this die!!  The first one I die cut with increased space and color, using four different colored 1' strips behind the grids.  Added a Simon Says Stamp sentiment from Handwritten Sentiments.  Thanks, Jen...will enter this card into the Moxie Fab Ombre challenge:)!!
The second one...HAD to go with my rainbow, the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Square Sayings, but wanted an extra row of color.  Decided to add a fifth row to the die and this is how... 
I first die cut...using my ruler to make sure the die was straight and Eclipse tape to hold it in place.
 Then after die cutting once, placed the die OVER 3 of the 4 rows, EXACTLY(really important), cutting over the 3 already cut rows, and cutting only one new row.
 It looks like the above pic.
 Then I placed 1/4" Scor-tape over the holes...back...
 and front.  Then die cut the various colors and with tweezers...
placed all the colored squares in the holes...took about 10 minutes...super fun for me...like making a puzzle:):)!!  Here's a close up of the squares...

Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  4. Wow, Lisa, this is great! Like you, putting all those little squares back would be fun for me! Both cards are way cool. Can't decide which I like more, so I'll just call it a tie. Bev

  23. I do hope you get this. I know this is a long shot. But am looking for the grid border die you used. And am hoping you sell your older stamps and dies. If you still have this die are you willing to sell it! Have a wonderful day.
