Simon Says Stamp - Warm Cozy Wishes

Hi my friends, I'm sharing my last card of 2021 using Simon Says Warmest Wishes 6" x 8" stamp set and the Scattered Snowflakes 6" x 6" stencil from the Warmest Wishes January 2022 Card Kit. The kit is still available to purchase at the time of writing and the individual items from the kit can also be purchased separately HERE.


I trimmed Distress Watercolor card to 4" x 5.1/4" and used the Simon Says Scattered Snowflakes Stencil with Tumbled Glass and Twisted Citron Distress Oxides to create a blended background.
I fixed a hand-cut snowbank to the bottom of the panel and stamped the sentiment and snowflakes from the Warmest Wishes stamp set inked with Simon Says Intense Black and Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink.
I stamped one of the snowmen images and trees, inked with Simon Says Intense Black, on to scraps of Distress Watercolor card and coloured with Distress Re-inkers using a Distress Detailer Brush.
I fussy cut the images, fixed the trees flat on to the panel with Distress Collage Medium and the snowman popped up on foam adhesive to create dimension. If fussy cutting is not your thing, there are matching dies available (linked below). I added Glossy Accents to the nose and buttons on the snowman and once they were dry, used a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to add sparkle on the snowman's body.
To finish I added shading around the edges of the panel using Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide ink with a mini round blending tool, Crystal Collection sequins and matted the panel on to an A2 white card blank.
I'll be back in 2022 to share more cards and craft projects, in the meantime, I'm wishing you and your families a very Happy and Healthy New Year.
