Simon Says Stamp! Christmas in August challenge


Hi everyone,

I'm excited to share that I'll be guest designing for the Simon Says Stamp! Challenge Blog this month. :) I love the good people of Simon Says Stamp! and their amazing customer service. They have the BEST shipping rates to Canada and go the extra mile to make their customers happy. Can't beat that. :)

This week's challenge (#119) is Christmas in August. If you make your own Christmas cards this is a great time to get started... helps do away with some of the stress come December. ;) Even better, you could win a $50 shopping spree with Simon Says Stamp! Someone will definitely get to celebrate Christmas early. ;)

Here's my Christmas card:

I cut a piece of Eggshell Layering paper slightly smaller than the notecard. I stamped it with the Envelop Pattern using the Shadow ink and distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. I stamped the tree and sentiment using Walnut Stain ink and embellished the tree with various Dots from Hero Arts. A small twine bow at the base of the tree and it's done.

Here is a list of the supplies I used (all Hero Arts unless otherwise noted):

- Envelop Pattern
- Merry Christmas Trees
- Swirl Tree
- Holiday Mixed Notecards
- Eggshell Layering Paper
- Soft Sand Shadow Ink
- Blush Dots
- Sea Dots
- Foliage Dots
- Walnut Stain Distress Ink (Ranger)
- Frayed Burlap Distress Ink (Ranger)
