Gift It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Christmas shopping was a success & I'm pleased to say all presents are bought & wrapped, so I just have Christmas cards to write & post now.
Today I have a longer than usual post to share as I am playing catch up & sharing two cards and also my DT project after having a few technical issues with my lap top which are thankfully now resolved :)

This week I have created a simple gift tag using MFT's Jumbo Fishtail Banner die to create the base and die cut it using Simon's lovely Sea Glass card stock. I also die cut some white card stock using the next size down die & I then blended some Sea Glass ink in the center. 
I have die cut the beautiful Eliza snowflake using Silver Screen card stock and attached it to my tag & stamped a sentiment from Simon's Joy To The World stamp set in Audrey Blue ink

Simon has again released lots of lovely new products for DieCember! There really are so many gorgeous goodies in this release, I absolutely love the glitter card stock.


I have created a card using Simon's new Joy To The World Stamp Set & stamped a cute nativity scene with them.

I coloured the images with my copics but got a bit carried away with the colouring and totally forgot to write the copic numbers down, sorry! I heat embossed the stars and then added some pretty sparkle to them using a Wink Of Stella clear glitter marker.

To finish I added a few Gloss White Crystal Drops on to some of the embossed snowflakes to add some dimension to my card.
