It’s That Time of Year…Simon Says Stamp DieCember!!!

And here we are!  Is the song running through your head? It’s….that time of year when the world falls in love…  Yes, we’re falling in love…with DieCember!!! lol

I’m here to show one of the new dies Snowflake Hexagon!  It’s gorgeous!

I let it snow I think with some JOY in there to you and yours!

Ink Drops – Ocean paper pad for the background paper…Hammermill white cardstock for all the white.

It’s time to shop the release…the dies are up in the shop HERE!

I backed the ink drops panel with a piece of silver metallic cardstock and then mounted it to a white A7 size card base.  It’s Hallmark size!

JOY is the poppystamps New Stacked JOY die. I just used the letters and not the stack outline part. I saved that for another day!

The To You and Yours sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Santa’s Sleigh Ride Slider stamp set.

OK – I won’t keep you so you can go shop!  Have fun and here’s a CODE you can use for $7 off,   MERRY22 !

Birch Press Design Meridian Ornament Easel Cards…

Hi everyone!  I have four easel cards to share with you today.  As I was making these, thinking about how fun and easy, it hit me how cute they would be for table place cards!  They would be beautiful just using the ornament part and hanging on a tree or used for a gift tag with a beautiful bow!

They’re so easy to make…I started with the black one and just kept going trying to use up the pieces!

The NEW Birch Press Design Meridian Ornament is a Layering Set.  I used all three layers for all but one.

The easel part is the Birch Press Design Christmas Ornament Pop Up Easel die set. I didn’t use the ornament that comes with the set this time but I did HERE in this post.  I’ll link everything below.

Here’s what I did inside this black glossy one.

I used Memory Box Black Glossy Cardstock and the NEW Memory Box 6×6 Vintage Pastel Mirror cardstock pad.

The happy Christmas sentiment is from BPD Contempo Christmas Greetings clear stamp set and die set.  I love this set!

So from the black one I carried on to three other variations!

I just got to playing using the same dies and stamp set.  I know…I brought in pink!  A contrasting color!  Out of the box for me! hehe

I spent the afternoon yesterday trying to take pictures and get them light enough.  It just kept getting darker and darker outside as the temperature kept dropping!  So there’s only one picture of the card with pink pastel metallic that was useable.

Here’s the gold with teal…


and they fit easily into an A2 size envelope

I love this teal one that I used the pieces from the waste of cutting layers A and B from the teal cuts.

for this one I used the poppystamps Modest Greetings 2 Hot Foil and cut die set for the Just For You and With  Love sentiments.

Do you have a favorite?  I think I do but then I change my mind! lol

Thank you for visiting today and hope there’s some inspiration here! I have so much I still want to make but I must start shopping and decorating too!  eek!

Simon Says Stamp Warm Christmas Card….super fun!

Hi everyone!  If you even have time to read my post on this busy week of being thankful!  I can tell you I’m thankful for a warm Thanksgiving!  I’m gonna head out and wash a few windows as soon as I finish this post! lol

I’m sharing my card for the Simon Says Stamp Holiday Sparkle release today!  How cute is this delightful tree and snowman!  I love this set!  I used one more image on the inside…I remembered to take a picture so it’s down below, keep scrolling! hoho  Oh, there’s a relaxing Santa in the set also but I didn’t get him into the composition! lol

Click on the picture ^ to shop the release…beautiful products to create with!

I ink blended a background with Distress Oxide ink…tore off the bottom sand part and covered the water and sky with vellum.

I die cut the NEW poppystamps Sunbeam Frame die in white and glued it over the top.

Trimmed down the sand and glued it to the bottom of the rays!

I’m tickled with how it turned out but if I was doing it again, I would cut another white die cut and ink blend it and fit the pieces into the top sunbeam frame die cut.   How cute!  ok – I love it!  lol

I colored with Copics…that always makes me happy…just an all around fun stamp set to create with!  There is a coordinating die set also!  yay!

Here’s the surprise on the inside!  You know what?!  This flamingo needs a red gem on the end of it’s beak! lol

Super cute!  A2 size card.

I hope you’re having a wonderful week and preparing for time with family and friends.  We’ll all gather tomorrow at one of our daughter’s.  Can’t wait!

Simon Says Stamp has some specials and a beautiful new card kit and so much more!  Have fun shopping in your spare time!
