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.
