Videopalooza Week, Day 1! Oh, and giveaway!

Mittens

Mittens

Hi All,

This week I am bringing you four videos, all holiday cards using the Simon Says Stamp December Card Kit. You can buy the kit as a one-time purchase or buy a monthly subscription for $5 off. I must tell you that this kit really renewed my interest in patterned paper. It’s so very clean-looking, and it can make card-making a lot easier too!

The kit includes the Big Holiday Wishes stamp set and cardstock from Doodlebug Home for the Holidays paper pack.

The card for today was really super easy! Mostly just trimming and stamping, plus I added some Glossy Accents to the mittens.

Giveaway

The generous folks at Simon Says Stamp are allowing me to give away a $30 egift card!! Leave a comment to enter a chance to win. You may comment once per post, so comment on all four to increase your chances! I will randomly select a winner on Friday. Good luck!!

Enjoy and come back tomorrow for Day 2!

    Very cute and it was fun seeing you dabble in some patterned paper! πŸ™‚ I do subscribe to the SSS kits and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them. I’m behind though….just finished up a few cards with the October kit yesterday! I do love those card kits though….such wonderful quality!

    Anyway, back to your card….this is so cute and cheerful…love the little mittens! Very nice and thanks for the tip about using the stampamajig to restamp. I always forget to do that!
