Simon Says Stamp: Making Spirits Bright Blog Hop

 
 

Hello Crafters! 

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp Making Spirits Bright Blog Hop! 
I can't believe it's nearly Christmas season can you?!

Don't worry if you're not in the holiday making mood this hop will put you on the right track!
You won't want to miss a stop on the way so if you're just dropping by be sure to head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to start from the beginning!



I used several of the new dies along with the Merry & Bright stamp set to create two cards today. 
The idea is the same for both I just couldn't commit to a color combination lol


For the first card uses distress inks that are on the yellow green side and the gold glitter paper Simon recently released. 


I just adore how detailed those pine tree trio dies are! I added even more texture by fluffing them up before adhering just the centers down. 


for the blue green pine needles I thought the silver glitter looked better. I accented it with some clear sequins. The bulbs are copic colored to look shiny. 


You can really see how glittery that sentiment is in the close up!
All the shimmer :)


I had some bulbs left over so I decided to do just a quick clean and simple card. I drew a swirly line on my card base, popped up the bulbs with foam tape, and stamped the sentiment this time around. 
I think the colors just pop this way! 

If you're interested in seeing both cards come together from start to finish you can check out the video below! 



Thank you so much for stopping in!
Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from the blog comment section. The winners will be chosen over the weekend and posted on the Simon Says Stamp store blog on Tuesday. So be sure to leave some love along the way! 

Your next stop is the wonderful Anna-Karin Evaldsson
