I love Simon stuff. Yes I do. That falling snow stencil. mmmmm. I used it to emboss my back ground on this Coredinations paper and then lightly sanded the little raised bumps so it looks like snow! I used the same stencil on the tag with some Dream Weavers original embossing paste. More snow. I used the MFT curvy die cut to make me some snow (also available at Simon). Didn’t this make just the nicest background for my little hand cut GKD Christmas house image?
The sentiment die is from Whimsy. I cut it out twice. I used my Wink of Stella brush to pick up some Tim Holtz salty ocean color and painted one layer. It looks so shimmery, gilttery, Christmasy! Then I barely offset that onto the second layer to give it a bit of a highlight. ( I have fallen in love with my Elmer’s spray Craft Bond for these kinds of chores) you can get it at Dollar General priced much better than craft stores. I sponged a bit of distress ink to fade down on the tag.
It was pretty as it was but I wanted to add a bit of color and of course Simon Says heart is always a fun addition.
