It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!

It's the most WONDERFUL TIME of the year! No, really, you guys. It totally is. I love Christmas. I just LOVE it! Today we have a brand new challenge on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! We want you to create a project inspired by this Winter Inspiration board!


I love the neutrals and the pops of red in these photos! I decided to pull from that to create my card today. The Design team is featuring Penny Black products this week, and I am super loving this stamp set! Lots, you guys. For reals, though.

It's the Most Wonderful Time

I am still in love with the chalkboard technique. It is just such a great look. This stamp was begging for it, so I had to make it happen. I stamped and embossed the sentiment in white and then used Simon Says Stamp white pigment ink to add a chalky look. Love it!

I added a few sequins and some Wink of Stella sparkle to the red bunting in the background. It is happy. I like it.


Now it's YOUR turn! Create something fabulous inspired by the inspiration board and link it up over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog. One lucky participant will win a $50 Voucher to the Simon says Stamp Store! YAY!!!


I am also linking this up to the Craft Stamper White Stamping Challenge!

Have a Happy!
