Simon Says........Christmas!


It's Wednesday, and that means another challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

It's getting to be that time of year, and so our theme this week is Christmas!  The design team are all using products from My Favorite Things, and we'd love to see you using them, too, though it's not a requirement to enter, as long as you follow along with our theme.

I wasn't sure I'd use this new Santa's Elves clear stamp set, but once I got it home and started playing with these adorable cuties, I couldn't stop!

supplies: white, lime, and red cardstock, Doodlebug dp, My Favorite Things Santa's Elves, markers to color, Simon's Merry & Bright and Stitched Rectangle dies, Hero Arts glitter and glue pen to add sparkle to his hat

I liked this teal and red combination and made a tag, too:

supplies: white and teal cardstock, red gingham dp, MFT Santa's Elves, markers to color, Die-Namics Stitched Tag, Simon's Merry & Bright dies, Doodlebug twine 

I've had this quilt cover-up die for awhile, but I always enjoy making a little paper quilt with it.   I used some papers from an older Doodlebug pad, and then added a snowflake to tie in with the snowflake background.

supplies: white cardstock, Doodlebug Home for the Holidays 6" paper pad, MFT Die-Namics Quilt Square Coverup, Wplus9 Snowflake Trio and Hand Lettered Holiday dies, red sequin

I guess I have "Merry" on the brain this week!

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

Do you use Instagram?  If you do, we'd love you to add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there, too! 

Inspired by all the cute elf tags on Day 8 of the 25 Days of Christmas Tags, I'd like to enter my tag into Tracey's Tag challenge.
