Here are my cards for this week. I used Greetings Galore set from Stampendous. I had made these two holiday cards before Christmas, and I hope they make sense even though Christmas is literally over :) 





Other than Stampendous stamp set, all supplies used are from Simon Says Stamp.

To begin, I stamped Santa from Christmas Cheer set which was included in the Simon December Card Kit on Watercolor paper using  Sepia ink. I watetcolored the image using my Zig Clean Brush Makrkers.  I then diecut the panel using Postage Stamp Edge Frame Die. 




Next, I stamped holly berry postage stamp image and snowflakes from the same stamp set and I drew lines to make my panel look like a real post card. Instead of writing messages, I stamped my greetings using Greetings Galore set . Then I inked edges a little with Tea Dye ink. I really wanted to put this post card in a mail box, but I had to foam mount it onto Schoolhouse Red Card Base, lols. 



Oh, the letter "Post card" was from Tim Holtz Postcards set. Finallyn I added a little sparkle using Stickles Diamond and a twine bow using Rustic Wedding twine from Crafter's Companion. I love that the Greetings Galore set has lots of useful sentiments that can be used for all occasions through the whole year and I love their fonts, too. This set is highly recommendable. 




I used similar items for my second card.





The blue snowflake pattern paper is from Simon Kit, which you can get separately from Carta Bella Santa's Workshop 6×6. I embellished this card using white ribbon and Sparkling Clear Sequins Mix.





That's it from me for today.
Which one do you prefer ? 







So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting & Happy New Year!
