Good morning everyone. I’m so excited to celebrating the Simon Says Stamp Make Merry release. There are awesome new products available today for your holiday card making. Let’s get started.
My projects today feature several new products and I had so much fun making fabulous cards to share with friends and family. I have three to share with you today and they are all super easy to create.
I know you are with me when you want cute tags for your holiday gifts. This adorable tag using the Deco Hat Gnome makes it easy. There are three dies included in this set and the color combinations and designs will be amazing. The background of my tag I used the Fallen Leaves stencil. This stencil has four individual stencils that allow you to use them together or separately.
My second card features the adorable Feline Like Christmas stamp set. It was so easy to make a quick spinner card using this set. The kitties in the stamp set have front and back images so spinner cards or inside out cards are easy to complete.
My last card was the easiest to create. I used the beautiful watercolor panels by Suzy’s Watercolor Prints. The fabulous design of these panels are beautiful to watercolor and make super easy cards.
Now it’s time to hop around and see all the awesome inspiration using products from the Simon Says Stamp Make Merry release.
Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop. Winners will be announced on the Simon Says Stamp blog on Wednesday, the 14th of October. Thanks for stopping by today and good luck with the giveaway.
