Simon Says.......Traditional Christmas

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

This week our theme is Traditional Christmas, and the team is highlighting Tim Holtz goodies!  

I paired some Funky dies with a Simon sentiment and a lovely cling background.

supplies: cream, Schoolhouse Red, Green Leaf, kraft, yellow, brown, various other green cardstock, Tim Holtz Funky Festive dies, Simon's Rejoice die, Impression Obsession Joy to the World cling stamp, antique linen distress ink

These pieces are on the small side for these old eyes, so it took me a little bit to piece some of the elements, but I love the results. Using Press 'n Seal really helped me to make my arrangement, too.

My next card is a bit more whimsical.

supplies: kraft, Peacock Teal, Schoolhouse Red, and gold foil cardstock, Tim Holtz Gingham Layering Stencil, festive berries distress ink, Mini Holiday Greens and  Holiday Words dies, twine, jingle bells

I used Tim's new Gingham stencil, and added a touch of peacock instead of the more usual green.

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate 

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

Love both your cards, Lin! The vibrant floral spray looks so pretty over the sheet music background, and I really like the crisp look of the plaid stencil work. Hope you are having lots of fun getting ready for Christmas!
