Comfort and Joy Coming at You!!


Welcome everyone to the Simon Says Stamp celebrating the Limited Edition Comfort and Joy Card kit!! If you're coming from Nichol Spohr's Blog, then you're in the right place. 

This kit is pack full of amazing goodies to make cards and tags for Christmas. You can check out the details HERE. For the hop today, I've created two cards featuring stamps and ephemera.

First up is a card that is just layered elements from the kit. I've cut up some of the papers to add to the mix to create my arrangement all set upon a Kraft tag. 



For this next card, I gold embossed the Poinsettia background on a panel of Desert Storm cardstock and added layers of the Tim Holtz ephemera to create my layout. To finish it off, I added Gold Stickles to the tree. 



I just LOVE layering and creating arrangements on my cards!!!

Below is a list of all the blogs to visit today. 


Your next stop on the hop is to JESSICA FROST-BALLAS

Enjoy!!!

Shari these are so gorgeous. I loved the bit where you said ' I just layered' how do you know what to just layer & it not be to much ? I try the layer a bit then step back & look at it but I get to little or to much, how do you get just right ? Thank you for being in this fun hop.🌟
