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.

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 October Release!


NEW! NEW! NEW!  Welcome to my blog post today introducing a new stamp from the Simon Says Stamp Cozy Hugs Release.

When this stamp came in the mail… I was stunned with the size but loved the bold print of it and challenged with what I would do!

So I put it in the MISTI and started inking with Lawn Fawn Ink Cubes, Lobster and Artichoke.  I tore some scrap paper squares to kinda mask off but finally just ended up wiping off if I got ink where I didn’t want it.  

I LOVE it! ❤

Fortunately I thought to snap a phone picture before I chopped it in half! (sorry it’s blurry, ugh, I only took one)

It’s just everything traditional Christmas to me! lol

I used a wide ruler to try to decide WHERE to cut it in half…finally realized there was no rhyme nor reason to where!

I ended up with two Mini Slimline size cards.

This one I just stamped a sentiment right over the design. Happy Christmas from the SSS Inside Christmas Greetings stamp set.

The second I tried gold heat embossing directly on the design but it didn’t show up as well as I thought it would.

I heat embossed a piece of vellum and positioned it directly over the direct to card embossed sentiment.

Now I wonder if I shouldn’t have added some gems or something but you know me… I err on the side of clean and simple!

Are you looking forward to Christmas creating or have you already started?  This release has some wonderful things in it!

Tired to catch the gold embossing in the picture a little better.

I had fun making these!

I hope you’ll check out the new release.  Thank you for clicking from my blog…if you click from somewhere else but want me to get credit, be sure to come back to my blog and click again.  I appreciate it so much and thank you from the bottom of my cardmaking loving heart! ❤

Thank you so much for stopping by!
