Simon Says Stamp Holiday Sparkle Release!

 Hello friends!  The Simon Says Stamp Holiday Sparkle release is now available at Simon Says Stamp!  Simon was so kind and sent me the fun So Many Present background rubber cling stamp.  I made a card and two tags to share.  Let's take a look! (An affiliate linked list of products is at the end of this post.  Using my links allows me to earn a small commission at no cost to you.  Thank you for your support.)

For my first card I went a sort of mixed media route.  I recently purchase holiday 2022 distress mica sprays by Tim Holts.  I was only going to get one set, but I loved that set so much I decided to get the other one.   This card uses the sprays from set 4.  I stamped the So Many Presents stamp on watercolor paper from Memory Box with Versamark watermark ink, applied white embossing powder and heat set.  Then the fun began.  I just started spraying the panel with the mica sprays.  I let each layer of spray dry before adding another so that things wouldn't get too muddy.  I think things turned out pretty well.  Once it was completely dry, I die cut it and adhered it to a white cardstock base.  The Merry & Bright sentiment is by CZ Designs for Simon Says Stamp.  I die cut the shadow layer from vellum so you can see the background peeking through.  The sentiment from silver glitter paper and then 3 more times from scrap white cardstock.  All the die cuts were stacked and then adhered to the shadow.  I added glue to the back of the piece and adhered it to the card front.   Kinda fun, don't you think?

Over the last few years I have made more tags during the holidays.  The funny thing is I don't usually put tags on any of the presents I wrap.  I literally have a drawer full of tags!   Anyway, stamped some kraft cardstock using VersaMark watermark ink and the So Many Presents stamp to create a tone on tone look.  One of the neat things about the So Many Presents stamp is that a grouping of presents can be popped out from the stamp to be used on its own.  I found some Christmas patterned paper and stamped the three presents on those papers and then trimmed them out.  I adhered the presents as you see and then finished off the tag with the rustic twine, red twine and gold and red bells.

Love the idea of stamping rest and then the sprays Rosemary, what a fabulous card. As for the tags? I'm sure the gift recipients would love your tags, especially these. Much too lovely to keep in a drawer.
