Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This week the challenge is

Let’s Get Ready For Christmas 

We are showcasing Clearly Besotted Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.
As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

And the Christmas cards have begun!!  I know, I know, some of you have been making Christmas cards since the 4th of July but I’m always behind in that department.
I thought these adorable Rockin Robins by Clearly Besotted would be perfect for my first Christmas card of the season.  But if you love them as much as I do, I advise you to pick them up from SSS ASAP as they are only available while supplies last!!

You probably know by now that my favorite kind of card to make is quick and simple and this was just that.  All I did was ink blend a background with distress oxide inks in Broken China, Blueprint Sketch, Faded Jeans and a little Black soot around the top.

I stamped the birch trees from the Joy To the Woods (by Lawn Fawn) stamp set in Sparrow ink and used my W1 Copic marker to color them.  I didn’t do any shading but I did take my W4 marker and go over all the lines in the trees as they seemed to fade a bit when I went over them with the copic marker.  I colored the ornaments and birds with copics as well.
I used the gorgeous white glitter paper from the SSS glitter paper pack to cut my snowy ground and then cut my frame by using 2 sizes from the stitched rectangles die set.
But first I ink blended another panel using the same colors so that my frame would match the background.  I sprinkled water on both panels then added Shimmer Spray in Sparkle for some added interest.
Before putting my shaker together I heat embossed the sentiment in white embossing powder and added dotted lines to the hanging ornaments.  The stamp set comes with a stamp of dotted lines but I thought it would be quicker to just add the dotted lines with a white gel pen.
I added the craft foam and acetate to the back of my frame and threw in some sequins and mini stars and snow to complete my shaker card.

I added a video below if you’d like to see exactly how I made this fun shaker card and below that is a list of all the products that I used.
So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!!
