Holiday Cheer

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

Traditional Christmas

There are lots of ways to interpret this theme: Red and Green Colors, Nativity Scenes, Santa’s, Snowmen, the list is endless!

We are showcasing Tim Holtz 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.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

My interpretation of traditional Christmas is red and green. The funny thing is, I almost never create a red and green Christmas card. It might have red and green in it, but never is my card solely red and green. I like blues a lot or pink and green together. I would say I usually use non traditional colors. But this week I’m sticking with red and green!!

I used the Layering Stencil Shifter Baubles by Tim Holtz to create my background. I ink blended Barn Door and Lucky Clover distress inks and then cut out this decorative rectangle using the Stitched Creative Rectangles die by Studio Katia.

I used the Fa La La stamp and die for my sentiment and Fog card stock as my background. I attached it all to a top folding card base.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
