Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #442


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

This week the challenge is...

Thinking of You

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

For my project, I used this little house die called  "Snowy Cabin"


This die is only $4.99, but the design and details it gives is amazing! I know there must be  more ways of using this die, but this was the first time I used it. I only wish there are more hours in the day and abundant Neenah card stock that I could use do all my kind of stamping and die cutting ....sorry, I digress!

love & hugs

After I did the die cut, I trim off the upper part, so it would be just the house AND ground. I created the "sky" on a piece of card stock and made sure my ink-blending's smudges won't show.

love & hugs-001

The Big Greetings from Simon Says Stamp is prefect for this.
The "snow" you see are:  White Pico Embellisher (sky), Nuvo Silver Moondust (ground) and  Nuvo Simply White (ground).

love & hugs

If you can see the subtle silver outlines of the paths.... We R Memory Keepers HeatWave was used here.
