Holiday Cards Featuring Simon Says Stamp Exclusives

Today I’m sharing two stenciled holiday cards featuring Simon Says Stamp exclusives! These cards are simple enough to be mass produced if necessary.

The first card uses the Mosaic Stars stencil and the second card uses the Mosaic Ornaments stencil. I used a sponge dauber to add Distress Inks (Squeezed Lemon, Mustard Seed, Tumbled Glass, and Broken China) through the stencils.

I also used Simon Says Stamp  Sea Glass card stock, plus Neenah Solar White. The sentiments are from the Inside Holiday Greetings set and were stamped with Ranger Archival Ink in Jet Black.

Thanks for visiting!

Hugs,

A Little Something Featuring Simon Says Stamp Exclusives

Today I’m sharing a card featuring Simon Says Stamp exclusives!

I have a collection of succulents in our dining room. When I saw the Cups and Succulents stamp set I ordered it right away along with the matching dies, Garden of Succulents!

I also used Simon Says Stamp  Surf Blue and Island Blue card stock (my favorite colored card stock!), plus Neenah Solar White. I colored the succulents and pot with Copic Markers (YG21, YG23, YG25, 0, B00, B02, B04). The other dies I used are from a set called Blueprints 1, which is also available at Simon Says Stamp.

Thanks for visiting!
