Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit Winner, Simon Says Stamp Product Feature, and a few SALES!

Hi everyone!

I'm stopping by today to announce the winner of the Simon Says Stamp December 2015 Card Kit: Gifts of Love and to share a couple of cards made with some fun Simon Brand goodies!
DEC-CK-600 R
First, the winner of the December Card Kit is:

Congrats, Robin! Please mail me via the sidebar with your mailing address so I can pass it on to the wonderful folks at Simon Says Stamp.

Here are the cards I'm sharing today: 

For both cards, I used Simon's Jumbo Stripes Stamps along with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I coloured directly onto my stamps with the markers and spritzed them with water before stamping them onto Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. (The ink will stain the stamps but I'm ok with that). Once dried, I stamped the sentiments from the same stamp set with Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad. I embellished the first card with Various Lucy Abrams Shaker Selections and the second one with Doodlebug Summer Glitter Assorted Sprinkles Enamel Dots.


Before I go, I wanted to mention a couple of sales going on.

Simon Says Stamp December 2015 Card Kit: Modern Peace Card and GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I'm back to share a final card made using the fabulous new Simon Says Stamp December 2015 Card Kit: Gifts of Love

DEC-CK-600 R
I decided to give today's card a modern twist using the large tree top from the 
Simon Says Stamp Gifts of Love Stamp Set from the kit:

I used my Misti Stamping Tool along with various Simon Says Stamp Inks to make stamping the triangles in a pattern much easier. I then matted the stamped panel with a strip of Simon's 120 lb White Cardstock and adhered it a piece of Simon's Black Cardstock before die cutting it with the largest of Simon's Stitched Rectangles Dies. I adhered it to a top folded note card before adding the 'peace' sticker from the Pinkfresh Studio Christmas Wishes Puff Stickers and some of Jillibean Soup Teal Plum Self Adhesive Sequins. You could easily swap out the peace sentiment for a birthday, hello, or thank you card.


If you're interested, you can pick up the Simon Says Stamp December 2015 Card Kit for just $29.95 + shipping. If you'd like to receive this kit and future kits for only $24.95 + shipping per month, you can SUBSCRIBE HERE.
