I just received the December Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp yesterday and couldn't wait to play!
The first thing I pulled out was the Maryanne Snowflake stencil and the white cardstock, along with my own distress inks: broken china, salty ocean and peacock feathers. I started with the lightest ink color and pounced it over the stencil, moving the stencil haphazardly all across my paper panel, and gradually changing ink colors as I went. Such fun! I liked the result so much that I cut it in half so that I can get 2 cards out of it.
Then I inked the edges and attached it to my white card base. The other elements here are a sentiment from Kelly Purkey's Let it Snow stamp set, and the Eliza Snowflake die, along with one of the Penny Black Snowflake Trio dies, layered, popped apart with foam adhesive, and centered with an aqua pearl.
I am really enjoying the few stencils I now own, and am looking forward to adding more to my collection!
