Hey lovelies and welcome to the final Simon Saturday of 2017
Yep you did read that correctly this is going to be the final Simon Saturday of 2017, its been a crazy few weeks and I am taking some time off for December, my blog posts will be scheduled and I will still pop by and say help but my online time is going to kept to a minimum.
When I first came up with the idea of Simon Saturdays I really hoped it would be popular but part of me did think who would want to visit my tiny part of the internet, but you have all been truly amazing and I honestly have been very humbled and blessed to have had so many lovely comments, and for that I cannot thank you all enough. You are all fantastic and so inspirational THANK YOU.
For my final post it seemed fitting to post some creations I made with the December Simon Says Stamp card kit….have you seen how cute this kit is ? I love it when Simon teams up with Doodlebug.
The stamp set is really sweet (I will link to it at the end of the post) and includes this fab christmas tree stamp which has spaces for you to add sequins, novo drops or just colour them as baubles.
I coloured the tree with some Prismacolor pencils onto some kraft card and die cut using Simons Banner die and adhered onto this perfect paper which was included in the kit but is from Doodlebugs Milk & Cookies pad.
For the second card I stamped the super cute gingerbread man and cookie and coloured with pencils and then fussy cut out. I randomly stamped the gingerbread man using brown ink all over the background and die cut out using Simons Wonky Stitched rectangle dies.
There is some lovely glitter card in the kit so I used Lawn Fawn Square stitch frame die to cut a piece out and added some vellum, I was tempted to go down the shaker route but decided not too.
I adhered everything to the card and stamped the sentiment which I cut out and added a flag end. It felt like something was still missing so I added a couple of the stickers from the kit.
For my last card I had to stamp and colour this Santa, he is so cute ! I kept the rest of the card pretty CAS using some of the paper from the kit for the background. The dies I used are from Studio Katia.
As you can see it was a fab and fun kit and I know people loved it. I did already own the Doodlebug paper pad but its so sweet I am glad i got more 🙂
