Simon Says Stamp – Heart of Christmas

Hi, Friends!

I was on the Simon Says Stamp Blog and YouTube Channel the other day sharing a card using products from the Peace on Earth Release. I’m sharing the video on my YouTube channel today and hope you’ll watch if you haven’t already seen it. My card today is a colorful holiday card using the Heart of Christmas products.  I love that there is a stamp, die and stencil that coordinate, but can all be used on their own!  Because I wanted a row of them on my card, today’s card is a 5” x 7” card.

I have a quick video sharing my progress and hope you’ll check it out!

I used the Heart of Christmas stamp to stamp a light image to use as a guide for the Heart of Christmas stencil using Barely Beige ink.  You could just eyeball the stencil, but since I wanted to use the Outline Heart of Christmas die, it’s important that the ink-blended hearts are in the right place.

If you didn’t have the stencil and only had the dies, you could certainly color the parts and in-lay them just as easily for the same look, but I just love stencils! Plus, it gives me the bonus of being able to use the Pawsitively Saturated Inks.  I ink-blended my hearts with Limelicious, Cheeky and Blush inks.  For the stars, I used Lemonade. Then for tree trunks, I used Khaki ink.

To ground my colorful trees, I used paper strips that I die-cut using the smallest of the Strips Die 1 set from Green Apple, Green Leaf, Cotton Candy, and Doll Pink cardstock.  I placed my Outline Heart of Christmas die-cuts over the paper strips and finished by adhering a sentiment strip from the Reverse Love Peace Joy Sentiment Strips. I hope you enjoyed this project!  Thanks so much for visiting today!

  1. I really like the colors you’ve chosen for these adorable heart trees. They’re unusual holiday colors but they’re a refreshing change from the traditional colors. They make the greeting bright and cheerful. I love it. Also this is my very first time watching a video by you. I really enjoyed the video. I like how you explain everything step by step. I loved all your tips and tricks. They made perfect sense and I plan to incorporate those ideas into my own card making. Oh yeah, you have a new subscriber. 🙂
