Christmas - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Featuring products by


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.

For this card I used the following product


I also used other assorted items listed below.

Christmas time is all about the gift cards for me!

I love to create flashy envelopes to give my gift cards with.

To start the ornaments for the gift envelope I used Tarnish Brass and

Brushed Pewter Distress Paint and painted Yes… painted right onto heavyweight cardstock.

Once the paint is completely dry, I ran my ornament thru the die cut machine.

I also die cut all the extra that give the ornament dimension.

With all my pieces cut, I started the assembly process.

 All the extra pieces of the ornaments I stacked up three layers so that they could stand out.

Now for the fun part, I grabbed my basket of gems and started to figure out what gems I wanted to use.

Happy with the placement I glued down the gems.

I also added a bit of Stickles to bump up the bling factor.

 While the ornaments are drying, I started on the envelopes.

This was made easy by using the Collector Tim Holtz Die Set.

In retrospect I should have used more bold colors on the envelops, next time.

I also stamped some details on the envelope using stamps from the Gnome for the Holiday Stamp Set.

All the components are finished, time to assemble the envelopes.

I punched a hole in the top of the ornament and attached the ornaments to the envelope with basic twine.

I also glued on the extra branches that I die cut branched to the front of the ornament.

 I snipped out a couple of Reverse Holiday sentiment to add to ornament and I was done!

Ready for gift cards!
