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

First of all my Memory Box Snowy Merry Christmas is straight but the wonky photographer was at it again. I was disappointed with my card because it wasn't very original but I do love how well it turned out.

I cut the sentiment die twice in white and stuck together, then I cut out the red to go in the white outline. Of course you recognised the Crazy Bird from Tim Holtz and Santa hat from the Accessories. I don't have the dies so they were fussy cut.  I used inkpads to blend the colours rather than used pens or pencils.

I stamped the bird direct to paper this gave me the legs rather than having to cut them out and once everything was dry I added the Flower soft and Fun Flock. I have a little pot with a mixture of both and I think it gives a better coverage.


So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
