Hello there! Today I’ve got a couple of projects to share with you using the Simon Says Stamp December card kit-Gifts of Love.SSS-December card kit-Gifts of LoveI love the adorable Gifts of Love stamp set and festive Pinkfresh pattern papers in this kit! I used the nested circle dies to cut a window opening and blended Maliblue ink behind the images.SSS-December card kit-Gifts of LoveThis next project uses the gorgeous red raspberry adhesive sequins that also come in the December card kit.SSS-Thanks Scallop dieI used the new Thanks Scallop border die and popped it up over a piece of Cherry wood cardstock cut from one of the Cherry Wood envelopes. I know what you’re thinking. I cut up one of the Cherry envelopes?? Well, I decided to sacrifice just one of the envelopes because I do love that Cherry wood cardstock and I’ll use every little sliver and scrap of that puppy until it is gone:)SSS-Thanks Scallop dieThat’s all for today.

These are really fun!SSS-Suzy's Holiday Watercolor DoodlesI just used my Copics. I know you can watercolor them, but I just wanted to use what I was comfortable with so I went with Copics. Comfort is the key word:)SSS-Suzy's Holiday Watercolor DoodlesAfter I colored them, I stitched on a piece of acetate and filled it with some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to make a shaker. Then I attached it to a Lipstick red card base.SSS-Suzy's Holiday Watercolor DoodlesMy kids have taken a serious liking to these coloring cards. They were fighting over the designs…big shocker!
