Tree Swings and Christmas Cards

It is time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! Woot! Woot! This week the challenge is all about CHRISTMAS and HOLIDAYS! We want to see you create something fabulously festive!

Merry Christmas Tree Swing

So, I posted a Christmas card on Monday that had a tree swing and now I'm doing it again. Apparently my crazy little mint colored head associates tree swings with Christmas. Which makes no sense whatsoever. But it keeps happening. So I'm going with it. Whatevs. I just do what the voices in my head tell me to do, what can I say? HA!

No, seriously, though...I LOVE this adorable stamps from Stampendous! and I had so much fun turning it into a holiday image! Isn't it awesome when you can really get the most out of your supplies?! The sentiment dies are from Spellbinders. And I love them. And you probably need them.

Merry Christmas Tree Swing (detail)

I decorated my tree with some Stampendous! tinsel embossing powder and Pretty Pink Posh sequins. CUTENESS! The image is colored with Spectrum Noir colored pencils, blended with a bit of blending solution... LOVE THEM!!! I bordered my card with Teresa Collins papers that are pretty much just awesome. AWESOME, I tell you.

Now it's YOUR turn! Create something awesome and festive and link it up over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store! WHAT?! Yup. Totes, dude. Totes. Do it.


Colored Pencils: Spectrum Noir
