Something New! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Wishing you all a very Happy New Year! 
My household has been struck down with the dreaded colds & flu since Christmas. I felt better for a couple of days so thought my cold was going but I feel like I'm back to square one & feeling rubbish again.
I am determined 2018 will be a more creative year for me as my family had so much going on last year which ate into my craft time so I created & blogged not nearly as many cards as I would have liked.

It's Wednesday which means -

Something New!
Maybe you received some new craft supplies for Christmas, or maybe you would like to make a New Home, New Baby project. Whatever ‘new’ thing you would like to make we will be looking forward to seeing your project!

This week I have created a card using some new craft supplies featuring Hero Arts Party Confetti Wafer Die & as you can see my card is very CAS & simple to create. 
I die cut the word sparkle 4 times and layered them to add some dimension to my card & I was going to add some of Simon's die cut snowflakes but they just didn't look right to me on the pretty background so I stuck with less is more!

Christmas shopping was a success & I'm pleased to say all presents are bought & wrapped, so I just have Christmas cards to write & post now.

This week I have created a simple gift tag using MFT's Jumbo Fishtail Banner die to create the base and die cut it using Simon's lovely Sea Glass card stock. I also die cut some white card stock using the next size down die & I then blended some Sea Glass ink in the center. 
I have die cut the beautiful Eliza snowflake using Silver Screen card stock and attached it to my tag & stamped a sentiment from Simon's Joy To The World stamp set in Audrey Blue ink

Simon has again released lots of lovely new products for DieCember! There really are so many gorgeous goodies in this release, I absolutely love the glitter card stock.


I have created a card using Simon's new Joy To The World Stamp Set & stamped a cute nativity scene with them.

I coloured the images with my copics but got a bit carried away with the colouring and totally forgot to write the copic numbers down, sorry! I heat embossed the stars and then added some pretty sparkle to them using a Wink Of Stella clear glitter marker.

My last card today features the adorable little Picture Book Happy Penguin wafer die from the DieCember release.

I die cut Simon's 3 Sided Scallop wafer die to create my base and embossed a snowfall background using Taylored Expressions Snowfall embossing folder I die cut the cute penguin in black and white glitter card stock and popped him onto the card & added a heat embossed sentiment from Simon's Joy To The World stamp set. To finish I added a few Gloss White Crystal Drops on to some of the embossed snowflakes to add some dimension to my card.
