Simon Says Stamp Special Holiday Release Blog Hop!


Thanks for stopping by today! If you've come from Tim Holtzs' blog for the Simon Says Stamp Special Holiday Release BLOG HOP... then Welcome!!! 
We are celebrating three releases in one week!! 

First, we have the December Card kit (Santa's helpers just informed me that it has already sold out)!! But, many of the kit components (including lights) are available for individual sale in the 
Simon Says Stamp store. 

Secondly, there is the Advent Plus release... super cute stamps and dies to create your 
very own holiday Advent Calendar plus new envelopes and tags!!! 

And finally, The Limited Edition Simon Says Stamp Holiday Card kit for 2016. It's a doozy... absolutely packed full of so many goodies!!!

For my card, I used some of the items from the Limited Edition Holiday card kit. I wanted to make a white on white look by using the basic neutrals. I started off with white cardstock and the Stitched Oval and Stitched Rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamp.


I tore white cardstock to create snow banks and added the tree from the Sugar Plum foam stickers along with the Retro Deer die cut from one of the Simon Says Stamp kraft tags. To finish off with a pop of color I added the green and red Stickles as ornaments and red nose 
for the deer. 


Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $50 gift voucher to one person from each blog in this hop. Remember to leave a comment telling us about your holiday crafting along the way f
or a better chance to win. 
I'll be choosing a winner by comments left on my blog before midnight (CST), Sunday. 
All winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Monday. Good Luck!!

The hop starts at the Simon Says Stamp blog, below is a list just in case you 
encounter any broken links. 

Your next stop is to the incredibly talented and my good friend Kristina Werner!

Happy Hopping!!

Angela Laurie said...

What a cute card!! I started Christmas crafting in September making wreaths first. Now I am on to my Christmas cards!!

Diana said...

I love elegant cards that don't use the usual red and green - this one turned out really well. I've finished making my Christmas cards (started in September, since I don't make duplicates), but I'm going to hand onto this example of yours for next year.

I save the commercially made cards I receive each year and use small round or square punches to punch out interesting images or bits of text. I then have fun putting them together in a grid, picking complementary colors, three across and three down, to make the front of a card, maybe with a greeting if there's room left.

Jenefer Basel said...

Seriously - this is adorable!!! LOVE

Tracy Brown said...

Brilliant card, love the layout and design!

Every year i promise myself that I will regularly make Christmas cards throughout the year, so that I have enough by December... Every single year I fail... This year is no exception, LOL... maybe 2017 will be the lucky year? Either way, I make cards for friends and family, and if I'm extremely lucky with some free time, I also make a few more for my friends and family to send to their loved ones...
