Happy Wednesday! It's time for another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
This week our theme is Christmas or Happy Holidays! I'm thrilled to be able to get some Christmas cards started now and save on the stress when the Holidays get closer! I just received some new Penny Black Christmas stamps and made 2 very different cards for you today:
My first card uses a new woodblock called Holly Concert, and I paired it up with this wonderful sentiment from the Season's Wishes clear set. First I stamped the birds and holly on white cardstock, embossed it, and then colored them in with markers. After cutting out the panel carefully I popped it above the blue snowflake paper background, then stamped my sentiment and added some new Snowflake Trio dies. I love how this turned out, and love the pairing of the image and the sentiment!
For my 2nd card, the design couldn't have been simpler, thanks to the tree image, also from the Season's Wishes set:
I stamped it right onto my card base with Hero Arts mid-tone Forever Green ink, and used Simon's Holiday Shapes to cut out a red star to cover the stamped star underneath it. Then I added some candy-striped dps, and some metallic decor to decorate the tree. Couldn't have been simpler!
