Simon Says Stamp Wedneday Challenge #396


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Christmas Critters Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week's challenge is... 

Christmas to Die for

 We are using Simon Says Stamp products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-) 

In recent years, Simon Say stamp is leading the crafting industry in coming up a huge innovative selection of products from dies, inks, paper, felt, planner....and accessories

I took out the two most basic dies that you can use for EVERYDAY paper-crafting.I can not recommend enough with the Stitched Rectangles and now Stitched Banner Dies.   

 The beautiful sentiment set "Merry Christmas" is perfect for this. First, I positioned sentiment in MISTI and then stamped with SSS Ink (School House) and Versafine. I then shifted the paper a little bit and then embossed the sentiment once again with Rainbow Embossing Powder. 

Merry Christmas

I had fun putting all the little banners together. The Echo Park 6"x6" (I LOVE MY FAMILY) from the Sept. Monthly Card Kit came in handy for this. I love the warm tone in this paper pad and thought it is perfect for this warm and inviting design. 

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
