Did you know Simon has card galleries for each of their releases and their card kits, and even a video gallery? It's true, and you can add YOUR VERY OWN CARDS AND PROJECTS to these galleries! Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries, and here's the link to the All the Joy gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects as well! 


Up first are two new products. The Filament Snowflakes embossing folder and the All the Joy die set. Creating an all silver, shiny, shimmery card is always a good idea for the holidays! This card could easily be massed produced too.

Keeping with the silvery theme, I decided to use the same die cut sentiment but this time with an older, snowflake embossing folder. Another quick and easy card.

My next card was created using the pretty, Holiday Blossoms stamp and die set, colored with Copic Markers and a little ink blending for the background. Always love floral Christmas cards!

I used the, Not Quite a Dot cling stamp for my next two cards. I Ink blended with the emboss resist technique on the first, and created an Alcohol Ink background with embossing on the second.

My last card uses the very cool, Airy Pine Needles die. It's difficult to see in the photo but I used the die to emboss the background before cutting it for the focal point. I added a bit of ink around the edges, some splatters, twine and red pearls (berries) to finish it off.

That is it for me. I hope I didn't share too many cards this time. Lol. It's just that I really like to use all the products Simon sends to me (so generously) each month. And I also like to give you some ideas on how to use those products. I hope I've done that with the products from this wonderful release

Enjoy the last two stops on the hop and thank you so much for stopping by!
