Simon's Cheer and Joy release!

Simon Says Stamp has a new release called Cheer and Joy!

I was sent the new Holiday Greeting Mix 1, which is a big stamp set full of Christmas sentiments.  I used it to make 2 cards for you today.

supplies: red glitter cardstock, 2 patterned papers from retired Authentique Christmas paper pads, Simon's new Holiday Greeting Mix 1 stamp set, green markers to color leaves, Stickles Christmas Red for berries, Simon's Christmas Blessings die, adhesive foam to raise inner panel

I decided to use patterned papers for my cards today.  These first 2 have a lovely vintage feel to them, and are small-scaled, so hopefully don't detract from the stamping.  I used some red glitter cardstock and Stickles on the berries to add a tiny bit of glimmer.  The central panel is raised above the background one.

Next, I white embossed some of the stamps over a buffalo plaid pattern, also a design paper.

supplies: Lipstick Red and white cardstock, buffalo plaid dp from Simple Stories Very Merry, Simon's new Holiday Greetings Mix 1, VersaMark ink and white embossing powder, various small snowflake dies, Honey Bee Crystal Clear gem stickers, adhesive foam to lift up snowflake dies

I simply arranged the big sentiment to the left and added some snowflakes from the set on the right.  I also die-cut a few small snowflakes of my own and popped them above the design.  Lastly, I put tiny clear gems in the center of all of the snowflakes for some sparkle.

Be sure to visit THIS PAGE to see the rest of the new release.  As always, there's a little of everything: clear and cling stamps, dies, stencils, sentiment strips, watercolor prints, enamel pins, and sequins.  Enjoy!

My absolute favorite is the new Pinecone Background, the Leaves and Berries Background cling stamp, and how fun is the new Gnome die!
