Simon Says Stamp Goodies

Hi there!

I got some goodies from Simon Says Stamp's new Christmas release and I've been playin'.

I love their Layered Trees Sets. There's a stamp set, matching dies and matching stencils too!

My first card uses neutral colors. I stamped the open branches of the tree and added color with a light gray Copic marker. 


The star was also colored with a Copic, in a light beige color. The background was created using the new Falling Snow stencil and the sentiment is one from the new, "Christmas" clear set.

My next card uses the Falling Snow stencil again, only this time on a white background using blue ink. I also used two of the new SSS Snowflake dies; Kate and Eliza.


That die-cut, Merry Christmas sentiment is a new goodie too - LOVE IT!!

I'm hoping to find more time to play soon - lovin' this new release!

Thanks for stopping by! ♥

Both cards are yummy. The neutrals are soothing, and the blues are sublime.

Gorgeous cards, Barb! The neutral colors on your first card create the perfect snowy winter night, and I love how you placed the blue and white snowflakes on your 2nd card! Such a pretty sentiment, too!
It looks like you're in for a lot of fun with your new goodies :-)

I am loving both of these cards Barb! They are both so cool and funky...very untraditional and just the type of card that I love to see for the holidays!

Hello Barb
We all have a favourite colour and mine is Turquoise, it is playful and festive, but also it demands attention; an engaging colour that expresses exhilaration, so for me the second card is a Wow, although I love the subtle qualities of your first. Both are fabulous.
