Simon Says Stamp – Holiday Stems and Berries

Hi, Friends!

The Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth Release went live last night! I’m back to share another card using new products from that release!

To create my background, I used the Holiday Stems and Berries background cling stamp to do some faux watercolor. I inked the background using Pine Needles and Rustic Wilderness Distress Inks. Before stamping, I used a cotton swab to remove green ink from the berries and colored them with a Festive Berries Distress Marker. Then to activate the ink to create the faux watercolor, I spritzed the cling stamp with water before stamping it onto watercolor paper. It creates a beautiful faux watercolor look!

To give it additional texture, I splattered the panel with gold and white paint. Next, I die-cut the Large Joy using new Matte Gold Cardstock and it’s outline with black cardstock. I cut the word joy twice more using white cardstock to layer it for dimension.

I finished by adhering a sentiment from the Reverse Love Peace Joy Sentiment Strips and some new gold sequins from Autumn Sky Mix from this release.

If you’ve never tried this technique, you’ll need to watch Debby Hughes’ video HERE. It’s so easy and has amazing results! I hope you’ll give it a try! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. **GASP!** Caly, Caly, Caly! Be still my heart! I don’t know why and maybe it’s weird, but I have a major thing for holly or anything resembling holly. Even my Christmas dinner set is holly! Did I mention that I love holly? Love, love, love this! 💜
