Snowflake Stencilled Card

I am really enjoying the Simon Says December Card Kit! It is the first kit I have received from them and am so pleased with it.  I love that there are so many samples and videos from their amazing design team to get ideas from, and there are enough supplies to make a lot of cards!

For this card I used May Flaum's example - this cute snowflake stencil is amazing! I used Distress Ink to sponge over the stencil, around the sentiment (also included in the kit) to create a background.

 The pretty little sequins are perfect for adding to cards and I stuck them on with Glossy Accents. Simon Says Wednesday Challenge this week is to create a background without using patterned papers - so I think this qualifies :)

The next card I make was inspired by a video by Nichol Magouirk, using the supplies in this kit.  I used the pretty polkadot paper included in the kit and stamped the string, mittens, and hearts on white cardstock. As you can see we have started opening the Lego Friends' Advent Calendar...

I used a white gel pen to create dots on the hearts and scattered the sequins around, gluing with Glossy Accents. I popped up the stamped piece as well as the sentiment banner, both sponged with pink Distress Ink.

 You can check out the gallery at Simon Says Stamp to see more inspiration!

Happy crafting!
