Chevrons...Four Ways!!

I just couldn't stop playing around with the new Simon Says Stamp Small Chevron Stripes die!!  This post will show you some of the different ways I thought of using it...so far:)!!...I LOVE this die!!
This first one, I die cut the chevrons facing one another.  I inlaid the die cut chevrons back into the die cut after coloring them with Simon ink cubes...perfect for swiping little papers like these.  I added a layered Simon "hello" die that I also swiped with the same ink as the chevron, only an extra swipe for a darker toned color.

This second one, I die cut and layered different colored chevrons, layered and made a rainbow on either side of a  black center...
here's a close up...

The next one, I made the die smaller to fit the card the short way, by starting the cut on one side of the cardstock, only die cutting 2/3 the way across, then turning it around after STARTING it on the one side, and FINISHING it from the other, only die cutting a short way from THAT side.  I then adhered strips of colored paper behind the die cuts.  I used the Simon Circle Smile die and cut out the "smile" from the circle...
...layered and embossed the smile and then used glossy accents to give the sentiment some shiny!!...

The last one is just my desire for a black and gray chevron striped card with a pop of white...just thought it would look so cool...
Layered the chevrons and the "hello"
OK...I never get tired of saying it...SO MUCH FUN!!  Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
