An exclusive holiday card kit from Simon Says Stamp + a blog hop!

Cathy ZielskeCards, Tutorials77 Comments

There is a brand spankin’ new holiday card kit from Simon Says Stamp out today. This is an exclusive release that is not part of the regular Simon Says Stamp kit subscription, and when it’s gone, baby, you know the drill. Today, we’ve got a blog hop to share lots of fun ideas for how to play with it!

I really only used a handful of items in the kit for my projects today! It really is packed full of holiday goodness!

The kit contains clear stamps, ephemera, patterned paper, tags, envelopes, cardstock, Stickles, a cool freaking red rubber cling background stamp—OH, and a full size embossing pad and a full size container of Simon’s Antique Gold embossing powder. Long story short: it’s stacked, people.

Here is a list of what’s inside: (many items are also available for purchase separately)

I had fun playing with some of the contents and incorporated the background stamp into all three of my projects.

And that tag above? Look at me… stamping and fussy cutting. I am a beast now. That is all.

I have a video showing you how I created the first card with the pretty blue background! Enjoy:

Thanks fo much for watching and stopping by. If you want this kit, order pronto! If it sells out, it’s gone! And check out the rest of the blog hop today to see how many ways people are creating with this kit.

    True story…your using your MISTI (or score buddy) to help you line up your card panel and card is one of my favorite tips for card making, like ever. Just thought you should know. ?

      Well that just makes me happy! I really only just recently realized you could use the ScorBuddy for the same thing! I’m all for lining things up easier!

    Awesome cards Cathy, I love the blue card, never used such a vibrant colour of blue for my Christmas cards but after I’ve seen this I certainly go using it. The stamp set with among other things the gorgeous snowflakes and that stunning background stamp are enough to fall in love with this great kit. Thank you for showing and have a nice weekend.

    I cannot decide which of your cards is my favorite. The gold embossing on blue and red are equally beautiful and I also love the retro look of the christmas tree card. Thanks for sharing.
