Merry Christmas To You

Just for fun, my friend Leslie and I decided to play the same sketch challenge this week. I admire Leslie for tackling all sorts of card challenges! I hope to play more of them in the new year.

The sketch we chose came from the Sketch Saturday blog. For my card I used the adorable Build A Snowman stamps and dies from SimonSaysStamp.com. I also used inks and papers from SimonSaysStamp.com.

Merry Christmas To You

Bright & Merry

Today I’m sharing a fun card using a stamp and die set by Hampton Art and Hot Fudge Studio. The set also includes a chevron tree and a plaid tree to mix and match. This card appeared on the Hampton Art blog recently.

I stamped the polka dot trees and colored the trunks. Then I used the included die to cut out the trees. It is faster and easier than fussy cutting each one by hand!

Joy

Adorable Little Penguins

Today I’m sharing a cute card using a stamp and die set by Hampton Art and Hot Fudge Studio. I just love these little adorable little penguins. This card was featured recently on the Hampton Art blog.

I stamped them and colored their outfits. Then I used the included die to cut them out. It is so much easier than cutting each one by hand!

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.

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.
