Hey guys I hope you are having a nice weekend so far.
It’s time for Simon Saturday
So what do you all think of the new Simon release ? It’s another great one isn’t it.
Today I am sharing a quick project I created using one of the new stamp sets from the release. To check out some other bits I created from this release then click here.
For the last 4-5 holiday time I have said that I want to create our own gift tags, we tend to use fairly plain gift wrap and I love creating lots of bows etc and I honestly really enjoy wrapping gifts, but I NEVER get round to doing the tags and the worse thing is it is only me, hubs and a few friends so I don’t even have to create that many.
But this year i REALLY do want to create our own tags so I made a start YAY me.
One of the new stamp sets is awesome because it has a real nice mix of stamps for all occasions and it has a really pretty tree and sentiment for Christmas, just perfect for tags.
I used a tag die to cut the tags all out of Kraft card. I cut the little hole covers (I have no idea what they are called) out of co ordinating card and put to one side.
I decided to emboss the tree’s using different colour embossing powders (all are linked below) and then stamped the Merry Christmas using Versafine Onyx Black.
I was going to leave it at that….but you all know me by now and I felt it just needed something more so I pulled out my Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pens in co-ordinating colours and coloured the trees and then splattered across the tags.
You can see the gorgeous dealing on the stamp here, it is so pretty.
To finish off i adhered the hole covers using Ranger Multi Medium matte and added some natural twine….I might swap this out for ribbon but i’m not sure yet.
Super easy and quick tags which I can produce in bulk. I highly encourage anyone to invest in this set as it really is gorgeous and is my favourite from the new release.
As always a huge thank you to everyone who commented on my last Simon Saturday Post I have used Random.org to select two winners for the $20 gift certificates and they are…..
Congratulations ladies, if you contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to claim your prize.
I wanted to ask you guys what you would like me to do for future Simon Saturday posts.
Would you rather I do one post a month, or continue to do two ?
Also let me know what content you would like, would you rather I focus on new releases more or continue to mix it up ? I really would love everyones input as it is you guys who continue to support the series so I feel you should have a say in where it goes.
Also regarding the giveaways…these giveaways aren’t sponsored by Simon and are done purely by me but would you rather i continued with the Gift Certificates or if I did actual product giveaways ?
Please let me know below what you guys think, I really would appreciate it.
Thank you guys so much for stopping by.
