Big Holiday Wishes (and Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit Giveaway)!

Hi everyone!

I'm back today to share another card and another chance to win a Simon Says Stamp Card Kit of your own. Also, just a reminder about this post with a card set and seed paper giveaway.

Today's card again features the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit: Warm Holiday Wishes.



I'm having so much fun with this month's kit and the adorable stamps included in it.

Here's the card I'm sharing today:


Embossing paste has become a popular tool for card makers to use with stencils. I thought I'd try something a little different and apply it to some plain white cardstock and then press the Sending Big Holiday Wishes stamp into it. Once dried I die cut the sentiment with a Simon Says Stamp talk bubble die (shown below). 

Supplies:


Just a reminder that you can purchase this kit HERE at Simon Says Stamp for $24.95. The Simon Says Stamp monthly kits have been selling out so if you're interested you'll want to be quick! If you don't want to miss out on a month and want to take advantage of a discount too you can subscribe each month for only $19.95!! It's an amazing deal!

Now for the giveaway part! Just leave a comment on any (or all) of my Simon Says Stamp Card Kit posts for this month by Sunday November 24th at midnight for your chance to one for yourself and I'll announce a winner on Monday the 25th. :)

Thanks for stopping by! Sarah

The more projects I see with embossing paste, the more I want it. This project will likely get me in the car to go get some. Great looking card and easily adaptable to whatever papers & products one may have.
