Happy December and welcome to a new month of challenges at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
This week our theme is CHRISTMAS and the team is playing with Stampendous products! I have 2 stamps made by them that I just love for the Holidays!
This one features the lovely Snowy Postcard stamp, or should I say most of it. I trimmed out the main motif of a peaceful country scene and framed it with a Floral Ovals die, then attached this to my backing of blue glitter paper. I embellished it with a Spellbinder's Poinsettia, Simon's Merry Christmas die, and a sentiment from Simon's Holiday Hellos, stamped in Hero Arts Red Royal ink. Other supplies: broken china distress ink sponged into the sky, Twinklets Diamond Dust along the rooftops and snowline, and gold pearls.
My next card features Stampendous' Winter Birds. I think these guys are so cute I made a special order just for it when I saw it come into the store.
This is a big stamp! So all you really need is a sentiment, which I found in Hero Arts Joy to All set. I cut the sentiment apart to make it fit into the space I had here. I colored the main image with watercolor pencils (the blues) and markers, sponged around it in tumbled glass, and added some glitter to the snowy areas and punched snowflakes, which are also coated with glitter. Then the panel was trimmed and attached to a green card base
Now it's your turn - I can't wait to get some ideas for some Christmas cards from all of you! As always, we'll have a $50.00 gift card to the amazing Simon Says Stamp Store for the random winner of our challenge.
I'm entering my 2nd card into Merry Monday's Feathered Friends Challenge this week.
