Simon Says - Thinking Of You

Hi Everyone...welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge BlogThank you for joining us for last week's challenge and we hope you can join us this week too because

and the theme for this week is...
THINKING OF YOU
I created a simple card and gift tag using the Woodland Whimsy stamp set from Simon Says Stamp November Card Kit with the "Thinking Of You At Christmas" sentiment from Tiny Words Christmas for someone who will find Christmas difficult this year and when a Merry or Happy Christmas sentiment doesn't seem appropriate.


I began by trimming Distress Watercolor card to create 2 - 3.3/4"x 5" panels. I inked the deer image from Woodland Whimsy with Vintage Photo Distress Archival ink and stamped on the panels and masking paper. I fussy cut the mask and cut a scrap of paper to create a mask for the bottom sections of the panel. I watercoloured the trees with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide ink and used Sizzix Circle Framelits to die-cut a tag from the second panel.
I watercoloured the deer using Walnut Stain Distress Oxide ink
sprinkled the panel and circle tag with Stampendous Frantage Chunky White and heated from underneath until melted. I die-cut 2 circles from Simon Says Stamp Schoolhouse Red cardstock. I fixed the smaller circle to the card, inked the sentiment from Tiny Words Christmas with Fired Brick Distress Archival, trimmed and fixed to the card. 
I inked the heart from Tiny Words Christmas with Fired Brick Distress Archival, stamped on the card and the kraft paper I used to wrap the parcel and added Ranger Red Enamel accents to the noses. I tied Red Bakers Twine around the parcel and attached the tag popped up on Sizzix Mini Foam Adhesive. I fixed the card panel to Schoolhouse Red card and matted on to an A2 blank Kraft Card.

  3. Delightful set, and so thoughtful with the sentiment, Kath. The simplicity of the kraft paper with the red is a fave, and your woodland scene is so pretty! I may have to make a few of these myself! hugs, Maura
