I Love SSS- Day Three

Hello. The fun continues for I Love Simon Says Stamp Week. It's Day Three and I have two more cards to share using THIS stamp set. (Click HERE for Day Two and click HERE for Day One.)

I wanted to do a spin on the traditional red and green Christmas colors and use hot pink and neon green! I applied Picked Raspberry and Twisted Citron Distress inks to a recycled piece of packaging plastic and sprayed it with water. I laid a piece of THIS cardstock in it to create a fun background. Spraying some of THIS on top gave it some great shine.

I stamped the deer and banner image from the set using THIS ink and used THESE coordinating dies to cut them out. I adhered them to the center of the card and adhered the entire panel to a black note card. A simple card that would be great for mass producing...

For my second card, I used another non-traditional color scheme to create a winter background. I did this the same way as the first card but used Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, and Seedless Preserves Distress ink. 

I heat embossed the deer again and a sentiment from THIS set using THIS silver embossing powder.
I hope this inspires you to use a non-traditional color scheme on your next holiday project. 

Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back tomorrow with another project for Day Four of the I Love Simon Says Stamp week. 



  1. Oooh, LOVE these!!
    I think the non traditional colors are amazing!

  2. I love non traditional colours on a card, specially the pink and green. Looks so striking with the black stag and banner.

  3. Very gorgeous cards ! I love those colours, Christmas looks even more joyful ! This stamp set is really beautiful ! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Heather, I love your colors and techniques! However, being much more traditional, it would be hard for me to make card like yours--which is really bad on my part! I think we all need to "step out of the box" once in awhile--which you have done so beautifully! Thanks for sharing! (Peg)
