Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy BLOG HOP + GIVEAWAY


Hello everyone! Welcome to Day 2 of the Simon Says Stamp Cheer and Joy release Blog Hop! You can check Day 1 here. Also, make sure to read until the end for all the details and a giveaway!

¡Hola a todos! Bienvenidos al segundo día del blog hop celebrando la nueva colección de Simon Says Stamp "Cheer and Joy". Podéis ver el día 1 aquí. Además, os recomiendo leer hasta el final para conocer todos los detalles y cómo participar en un sorteo.

CHRISTMAS FOLIAGE CARDS



I have created two cards using the die "Christmas Foliage". I love how you can combine it with other products to create very different projects.

He creado dos tarjetas usando el troquel "Christmas Foliage". Me encanta como puedes combinarlo con otros productos para crear proyectos muy diferentes.


For my first project, I heat embossed the background stamp "Leaves and Berries" on a piece of white cardstock. I added color with Distress Oxide Inks and used the die "Marry Frame" for my sentiment and focal point.

Para mi primera tarjeta, he embosado en caliente el sello "Leaves and Berries" en un trozo de cartulina blanca. He añadido color con tintas Distress Oxide y he usado el troquel "Marry Frame" como sentimiento y punto focal.



For my second card, I simply heat embossed a big sentiment from the stamp set "Holiday Greetings Mix 1" on vellum cardstock, placed it on a Desert Storm base cardstock and added the leaves, jewels and dots. Very straight forward!

Para mi segunda tarjeta simplemente he embosado un sentimiento del set "Holiday Greetings Mix 1" en cartulina "vellum", lo he puesto sobre una base de cartulina color "Desert Storm" y he añadido las hojas, los brillantes y los puntitos. ¡Muy sencilla!
