Happy Friday crafty friends! Time for another fabulous Simon Says Stamp brand exclusive release! This month they are releasing Holly Jolly!
I got to play with the new Merry Chunky dies, the Christmas Kitties and the amazing new Unicorn Confetti!
I decided on a slimline card for my first project to really showcase the Merry dies, the size is such fun. I used Distress Inks for my background (Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch and Faded Jeans) and added some water droplets using my Distress Sprayer. Once my panel was dry, I used my Falling Snow stencil and some white Texture Paste and put it aside to dry.
I took a bunch of glitter paper and die cut some of my favorite Simon Says Stamp snowflake dies. I used the same papers for my Merry dies and added everything to my panel. I wanted a large enough Christmas sentiment so I chose one from the Simon Says Stamp Christmas Cheer set and white embossed it on some Tonic Blue specialty cardstock.
To finish off, I added seem Pretty Pink Posh Metallic Silver Jewels to the snowflake centres!
So, how cute are these Christmas Kitties! I thought they were perfect for Christmas tags. I used a Simon Says Stamp tag die and stamped my Kitties and colored them in and decided to add some of the borders from last years Critter Sweaters stamp set in matching colors. I then added some Unicorn Confetti to parts of the sweaters and scarf.
For my sentiment, I used the smaller tag die from the same tag set and white embossed my sentiment. I then decided to die cut complimentary colored tags from specialty paper for the back of the kitty tag. I put them together with twine from my stash and for a finishing touch, candy hearts to the side of the tag!
