Simon Saturday | Using non holiday stamps for holiday cards

Hello lovelies, I hope you are having a great start to your weekend ? 

Its Saturday and it is time for another Simon Saturday.

As you probably know by now I try and stretch my stash as much as possible, even more so for holiday cards. 

Simon’s latest card kit included a beautiful floral stamp set which includes a very pretty floral cluster. The kit has sold out but the stamp set can be purchased here

I decided to colour the floral cluster in a “holiday style” and pair it with Simon’s Merry Christmas Stamp

I used Arteza Brush Pens along with my water brush to colour the images and kept it fairly simple using just one colour on the flowers. 

I love using script stamps over other stamps like this, especially embossed.

I am really happy how this came out and I adore this Beautiful Flowers Stamp set, I especially like the sketch style of it. 

Have you ever used non holiday stamp sets for holiday cards ? If so I’d love to see 🙂

  2. OHMYSTARS – on two counts! First, your Christmas card is stylish, classy and all-around gorgeous! I think you and your new markers are forging a wonderful relationship! The blooms…such rich, vibrant colour. I’ve not often used non-Christmas images for Christmas cards, but seeing this has certainly sparked ideas…
    Second, totally thrilled to be your giveaway winner! THANK YOU x a zillion! Will send you a note later…off to officiate bike races today. Leaving here at 6:30 am on an hour’s drive to get to the venue; hope the currently sunny skies continue!
    Hugs~carol
