Big Joy Snowflake

Hi all, are you ready for Christmas? No, me neither ;-)

I made a few more cards using my favorite Big Joy Snowflake Die that was part of the DieCember release. This time I used using pinks and gold, a bit of a variation on THESE cards I made last week. 


I blended Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks and then spritzed with water and when that was dry I splattered with gold 

I die cut cut the snowflakes from black card and then used a Tim Holtz Wood Slice stamp, inked with versa mark and then heat embossed with gold, I love that the snowflake isn't totally gold and looks a bit distressed don't you think? 


Thanks for looking!

Simon Says: Stitch It




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


This week the challenge is

Stitch It

real or faux, you can even use stitched dies

We are showcasing  We R Memory Keepers  Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by and see what our fabulous guest Michelle and the DT have made, fabulous sewing! ;-)

I recently bought the We R Memory Keepers Stitch Happy Sewing Machine and I can tell you it definitely does make me happy ;-) It is in mint green to match my craft room and is very cute ;-) 


I use a Simon's Exclusive Holiday Background Cling Stamp, a  Magical Christmas Stamp Set and Co-ordinating Die Set along with lots of  Gold Embossing Powder to make this card. I just love the reindeer, isn't he a handsome chap! 


I used the same stamp and some clear embossing ink to create a watercolored background on the inside. 



So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
