Simon Says Stamp Create Joy Blog Hop! & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Create Joy Blog Hop! You should be arriving from the very talented Yoonsun Hur's blog. If not, you can start the hop at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. Be sure to comment at each blog along the way for you chance to win one of the prize packages valued at about $50. Winners will be be chosen this coming Monday and announced on the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

In case you missed it, here is the fabulous Create Joy Release in it's entirety:




Here are the cards I'm sharing for today's hop, both using the stunning new So Very Merry Stamp Set created by Tammy Tutterow for Simon Says Stamp.


For both cards, I die cut a rectangle from some Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock using one of Simon's Stitched Rectangle Dies. I then scribbled some Colbalt Blue Zig Clean Color Marker on them, spritzed them with water, and let them dry. Once dry, I stamped the So Very Merry images with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and used my Copic Markers to colour them.

For my first card, I added some Glossy Accents to the Christmas ornaments and a touch of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker to the 'noel' sentiment and the star at the top of the tree. I then added the panel to a Hero Arts notecard stamped with Simon's Diagonal Stripes Background Stamp using Simon's Lipstick Red Ink.


For the second card, I finished off the panel with some die cut stars from Simon's Holiday Shapes Dies (which I covered with Glossy Accents). I used one of Simon's Wavy Scallop Stitches border dies to create some grass on my pool coloured notecard and used foam adhesive to adhere the stamped panel to my card.

Supplies:

Thanks for stopping by!
