The Color of Fun...Game Tile Cards

I LOVE SCRABBLE!!  When I saw the Game Tiles stamp and die set from the new Simon Says Stamp, The Color of Fun release, I was IN LOVE!!  This set has SO MANY possibilities, and for friends and family that love Scrabble, and I have LOTS of them, and I'm sure you do, too, this set is a must have!! I made three cards to show you!   I made a birthday card with a rainbow of color tiles...
 I die cut then stamped and clear embossed the tiles(adhered the tile to paper before stamping so that when you emboss the tile you don't have to hold onto a tiny, hot tile), then layered each tile.  I used each of the lettered tiles, placing them around the card, then placed a card-size acrylic block over the tiles, covered them with ink, and stamped them all at one time onto the card.  Here's a close up....

The second one is a very personalized card for my favorite Scrabble player, my sister Rachel, who calls me "The Scrabble Queen"(I think that's why she's my favorite player...I win a lot)!  She lives 700 miles away, and I miss her terribly!!  I KNOW she will LOVE a Scrabble card...
 I used wood veneer paper for the second AND third cards...thought it gave the tiles such an authentic look!!

The third one I used the three tile die to make a grid to place my "love you" on....
 I just kept placing the die around the card stock piece, making sure to keep at least one of the squares of the die in an already die cut square...to keep the die cutting straight and perfectly spaced.  I layered these tiles, like with the other two cards, and added a layered die cut heart over the "o" to make it all a little more special, for color and added texture:)!!   Here's a close up...
Hope you will get to check out the new release over at Simon Says Stamp...it IS "The Color of Fun"!!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
