Videopalooza Week with Giveaway, Day 2!

Merry Kissmas

Hi All,

Welcome back for Day 2! This week I am bringing you 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. When I saw this paper, I just had to use it – so cute!

You’ll notice in the video that I debated leaving the bottom portion of the card blank or filling it with the patterned paper. In the end, I decided that leaving the area blank made it look just a little bit cleaner.

Did you know that Simon Says Stamp already has several products from the Hero 2014 catalog? Click Here to check out the new goodies!! As soon as I saw this set, it went right to my wish list!!

Giveaway

Don’t forget to leave a comment to enter a chance to win a $30 egift card to Simon Says Stamp. You may enter once per post, so comment on all four posts to increase your chances! See Day 1 if you missed it yesterday. Good luck!

Enjoy and come back tomorrow for Day 3!

    Fabulous card again, Darlene. I love the DSP with those adorable little reindeer but, if you would have put the other piece of paper on the bottom, it would have made it look a bit crowded. Leaving it bland hit the spot.
    I always look forward to Wednesdays for your videos but this week, we are all are very lucky to be able to enjoy a whole week’s worth of your amazing and delightful videos. Thank you so much for making them.

    I love how you stamped the three rows. When I first looked at the card before watching the video, I thought that section was a piece of design paper. I also thought you may have stamped and coloured all those little reindeer. I like to look at your finished cards before I watch your videos to see if I can work out how you made them. You surprise me a lot of the time. Thanks for sharing your videos and inspiration with us!
