10 Cards | 1 Kit – SSS December Card Kit (Part 2 of 2)

Hey There,

I’ve got part 2 of my 10 cards 1 kit using the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit for you today. As I mentioned yesterday – time before Christmas is so quickly running out,  so I’m going to jump straight in again today with the video:

Here are your close-ups:


I love how bright this card turned out – it’s almost as if a light is shining on those ornaments.

My Christmas cards will forever be stamped with these Mama Elephant sentiments.

Christmas in space, lol. I rather like it though.

7 inside

That festive berries distress oxide ink is awfully pretty. I was thinking when I got the kit that I really didn’t need another red/pink but I’m so glad to have it now.

So I know that this is supposed to be a cookie sheet, but I’m not sure the recipient would get it right off the bat. What do you think? Should I have popped up the cookie stickers? It needs something but I’m not sure what.

8 inside

Mrs. Clause is so cute – I haven’t made any cookies yet this year. I have roasted some pecans though!

This card came together super quick and it’s one of my favorites – I love the red and blue mixed together and that strip of glittery snow to ground the scene.

9 inside

Keeping it quick, I finished off the inside with a couple of stickers too!

I really like this bow die – it’ll be great to use for other things on its own. I’d love a larger version too!

Love that candy cane stripe.

Well, that will do it for today. As always thanks for stopping by to check out my cards! xoxo, Sarah

10 Cards | 1 Kit – Spellbinders November Card Kit (Part 1 of 2)

Hello Hello…

It’s was a busy weekend for me – I traveled to PA for my nephew’s 8th birthday party – LEGO EVERYTHING!! I did make a birthday card for him but as it’s not Christmas themed I’ll save it for a later date. So now I’m getting back into the swing of things and have Part 1 of the Spellbinders November, Deer Santa Kit for you. LOVE this kit, love the die set, love the ephemera, love the washi, love love love.

Here are the first 5 cards I came up with:

Here are some close-ups of the finished cards:


Such cuties – if only I could get my Charlie cat to wear a Santa hat!

I love this Holiday cheer sentiment – the script is gorgeous and super fun mixed with the large block font. It has a great hand done look.

2 inside2 close3

This deer is so cute – I fell in love instantly.

3 inside3 close4

Who wouldn’t love a present wrapped up in that shiny gold ribbon?!?

Such a pretty piece of ephemera – I just wonder where exactly she is off to.

As always thanks for stopping by to check out my cards – hope I was able to give you some inspiration to use with your kit! xoxo, Sarah

12 Days of Christmas | Simon Says Stamp (Part 2 of 2) + Hidden Giveaway Winner!

Whew…just made it! (technically it’s still December for another hour)

Happy New Year!!

So sorry for the delay in posting this, I’ve had it edited for a week but had to do the voiceover and although I took everything home with me to Pennsylvania I was swamped with family stuff and just didn’t get to it. So without further ado – here are the last 5 Cards from the Simon Says Stamp December 2017 Card Kit:

And here are the stills:

1 front

This paper was so pretty, I just wanted to let it shine.

1 close

Love those gum drop stickers and they accented the paper perfectly.

2 front

I think if I had to do it again, I would have rounded the corners on the Santa card to make it more similar to a journaling card.

2 close

That Marvy pen is so much fun…really I could put it on everything!

3 front

I’m happy how this turned out, but after I finished I thought it would be really fun to to “wrap” the front of the card across the middle as well as if it was a present and put the tag in the middle, but I didn’t want to  put another hole in the top so I left it as it was. Idea for next year though…

3 close

I really love the combination of the Santa tag, the flag and the bow.

4 front

This tri-square die is so versatile. I’ve used it on lots of card and it’s a really great go-to when I’m running out of ideas. I’m always pleased with how the designs turn out though, must be something about that rule of thirds.

4 close

Those gingerbread men are so cute!

5 front

It’s been a while since I’ve done a patterned background like this, it changes it up a bit to leave the sentiment half on/half off the pattern.

5 close

Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you’ve had a Merry Christmas and wish you a very Happy New Year! I’ve really enjoyed sharing all my card ideas with you for the past several months and am looking forward to sharing more in the next year.
