Simon Says..........Clean & Simply Christmas !!

wed-newchallenge-header

Our new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week is..........

CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHRISTMAS  

Christmas is only    days away so if you haven't made a start on your preparations then maybe now is the time to think about getting all of your holiday craft products out of mothballs and making a start! Keeping your cards CAS should cut down on the time it takes to make them, you can mass produce and it also keeps the postage costs down too, a definite winner!
We are showcasing MEMORY BOX PRODUCTS this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

We have showcasing Memory Box products. I find it difficult using CAS Memory Box products, I have so many of their beautiful dies they tended to end 'fussy and fancy' and abandoned white  few and started again - this is my result.
I coloured a strip of  the card with Distress Inks  and added one of the Memory Box Deer Trio  and added the Memory Box Star of Wonder. I use the Simon Says Stamp Falling Snow Stencil which looks like rain, not snow - it was photographing very dark and in the rain!!




I have made a few more Memory Box dies - this one is based on Neenah Environment Desert Stork Kraft,  The sentiment is Simon Says Stamp Merry Christmas Die and a Memory Box Branch Die with , Memory Box  Bauble,  this bauble has been my all time favourite but I think is now off sale - now I shall have to choose another!!


The Brick wall is a Tim Holtz folder which I can't link also the Memory Box Madison Door is also not Linked but is cut with Simon Says Woodgrain White Cardstock where I added a  Impression Obsession Fir Sprig Die along with Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade Die which bothe are cut with vellum coloured with Copics.

Your CAS card is so so stylish and I love reindeer on Christmas cards. I really like the snow effect on the ground.
Your two other cards are so stylish as well. Great use of the bauble die and love the elegant and warm and cosy feel of your door with wreath...
