Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Christmas


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Wrap It Up Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is


Christmas will soon be here so lets try to get everything we need to make covered this week!

 Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

Here's my card for this week. I used Angelina's Christmas Stocking Stamp set from Creative Expressions

I started by stamping Angelina's Christmas Stocking onto 140lb Cold Press Watercolor paper using Versafine Sepia Ink. I watercolored the images using my Zig Clean Brush Markers

Next, I diecut another card stock by using Simon Holly Oval Framr Die, and then run it through again in Tim Holtz Lumber 3D Texture Fades embossing folder to give the front cover woodgrain texture.

 I put this window frame panel onto my colored piece using foam tapes. Then I added sentiment from Winter Scene, which was heat embossed in white on Schoolhouse Red Card Stock. Finally, I adhered the panel onto 100 Neenah Desert Storm Card base and finished off my card by adding some Sparkling Clear Sequins

Here's another card I made using the same Stocking Stamp set, in which I used Midnight Green Cardstock and a few colored sequins for to give some color variation. 

So now it’s YOUR turn.
