It’s been a while since I purchased a Simon Says Stamp card kit. This kit is so so so very cute. The little Reindeer and Hedgy stole my heart. Let’s start with the reindeer.
I die cut him in white card stock and quickly colored him with a light brown and dark brown copic. Easy. The stitching is the Journey Circle around dies. A perfect addition! He looks great all white too!
Piercing was added using my Journey Circle die. That beautiful woodgrain paper is part of the kit! Hand doodles for the border …and I love using the Nuvo drops for his nose! Can you tell why I love him so much? Now check out this cutie:
It’s Day 1 of the 30 day coloring challenge so my timing is perfect.
Most of the card kit supplies can be purchased separately if a kit is not for you. BUT the value is definitely in the kit.
A wine bottle tag is a fabulous way to personalize a gift of wine or bubbly. What better gift to bring to your holiday parties!
Basic Specs: The tag base is 2-3/4 x 8 inches in dark green card stock, scored at 2-1/2. The Prima Christmas in the Country paper : 2 x 7. The red cardstock banner: 3/4 x 6. The circle die cut: 1-1/2 diameter for the top of the wine bottle.
The poinsettia is colored with copics. There is an additional poinsettia on top of the floral cluster to add dimension. (Fussy Cut) The Wonder of Christmas for the sentiment.
Take your gift from ordinary to extra-ordinary this holiday season and make your gift recipient feel extra-special!
Two of my favorite things are coffee and stamping. Its an added bonus when I can combine them and create coffee themed cards. This is the new Concord & 9th Coffee Turnabout released earlier this month. I knew I had to have it!
I stamped the turnabout background in black memento ink and then colored with copics. It was so worth the extra effort because it looks like designer paper! Can you see the clear glaze on the coffee?
Here is a second card. I went simple dark brown ink to keep it clean. This is such a fun stamp set.
If you place an order please DON’T FORGET to get the Turnabout Jig. It really does make the turnabouts soooooo easy to use. Total game changer.
This Coffee Turnabout bundle is available at several of my favorite retailers!

Two flowers, one small bloom and one stem. Those are the die cut card stock pieces for the front of the card. The real magic of this die is on the INSIDE of the card, check it out:
Not going to lie, this card was fussy and took a while to make. The flowers were the fussy part, mostly because I put in extra layers and sponged the petals. Without a doubt, it was worth the effort and I LOVE IT!!
Each Sunflower has 3 flower die cuts, 2 for the front and one for the back. I added one to the back so the open card was pretty from any angle. The green stems are also 2 pieces of cardstock glued together. You could definitely use one, I just wanted a little more stability.
If interactive WOW cards are your thing, then this Pop Up die makes it easy! Check out this video from Spellbinders:
