SSS Diecember Release Blog Hop – Day 1


Hello hello crafty friends and welcome back to another tutorial. I’m extremely excited to be apart of  Day 1 of Simon Says Stamp Blog Hop for their Diecember Release. If you are hopping along then I am guessing you are coming from the very talented and amazing Heather Ruwe.  She is sooo amazing isn’t she?   Simon Says Stamp is giving away a $25 coupon to every stop on the hop from their blog comment section. They will pick a winner from each blog and post the winner on Simon Says Stamp blog on Wednesday, December 9th, 2020. So make sure you leave a comment below. There’s also a free gift!!   Make sure you use the promo code when you check out.  It expires 12/4 at 11:59pm EDT…So let’s get started.

I started this card by stamping ALL of the snowflakes from SSS Prismatic Snowflakes on top of distress ink cardstock. I used Chipped Sapphire, Mermaid Lagoon and Peacock Feathers. When I finished distressing, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out.

I trimmed down some SSS Soft Navy and splattered some white ink on it. I then adhered all of the snowflakes on my panel using some foam adhesive.

When I was done with that, I stamped CZ Design Merry Christmas from her Good Cheer stamp and coordinating die set on SSS Soft Navy. I embossed it with Simon’s White embossing powder and heat set it. Cut it out with the coordinating die and adhered it with some foam adhesive. I adhered my panel on SSS White 120# cardstock and finished it off with some silver embellishments and some Wink of Stella clear shimmer.

That’s it. Simple, right?!? For your convince, I’ve listed ALL of the items for this DIEcember release along with the items I used to make this card. All you have to do is click on the image and go shopping. Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to come back for Day 2 where there’s even more inspiration for other talented designers. Have fun hopping and good luck!
