Happy Holidays/ Christmas - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Happy Holiday/Christmas

Featuring stamps and dies by

Newton’s Nook Designs

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

But… If you have some of their product in your stash

We would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

My stamp and dies set of choice for this challenge is:

Snow Angel Newton

Bubbly Stencil

Frames and Flags Die Set

Speech Bubbles Die Set

So excited to share all the fun elements on this card with you.

The base of this card is created with the

Frames and Flags Die Set

I love a shaped card, and this is one of my favorite dies to create shaped cards with.

To create the card front I stared with white card stock and the Bubbly Stencil.

Shaded Lilac, Salvaged Patina, and Chipped Sapphire are choosing of Distress Colors.

A little extra Chipped Sapphire on the bottom half of the card added a pop of color.

Once I liked the way my inked-up card stock looked, I set it aside to dry.

Next, I stamped and colored the Snow Angel Newton Stamp Set.

I also stamped out Snowflakes to be used later.

Now that my inked-up cardstock was dry, I die cut it out with the Frames and Flags Die Set.

This is going to match up to the card base and create my shaped card.

To this card front I stamped on some extra snowflakes that

I embossed with white embossing powder.

At this point I decided that this was NOT enough snow, so I took a chance and

used Picket Fence Spray Ink and gave the card front a spritz.

To assemble the card, I die cut out Snow Angel Newton and popped it up on foam tape.

This was added to my snowy card front first along with the snowflakes I stamped out.

A sentiment was created using the Speech Bubbles Die Set and added to the front.

For a final tough of bling, I squeezed on Unicorn Stickles to the snowflakes and around Newton.

This completes my take on Happy Holiday/Christmas
