Simon Says Stamp NEW Christmas Release !! :-)

Hi all :-) Today is the day that everyone gets to see the fab new Christmas Release Products from Simon Says Stamp ! :-)

I have the Christmas music playing here ,,, gets you right into the Christmas spirit along with a glass of sherry ! It is amazing what a few simple props will do ,,, has my mind convinced that it IS actually Christmas !! :-) Well it is only 81 days away :-D

I have made 3 cards to share today ! 

First up is this super cute card using the 'Happy Meowday' stamp set and Merry Christmas Dies. I made an aperture for the front and used acetate to cover the hole from the inside. 

For this one I followed the fab sketch on the Less Is More Challenge

I love this funky new Layered Tree die too ! This is a super quick and easy one to do and will probably be the one that I mass produce :-) I used sookwang double sided tape and die cut the star and baubles and then used glitter ritz for sparkle ,,,, love that glitter :-)

and last but not least is this card using the Merry Christmas Die and Stamp Set, I also used the Tiny Square Envelope die from the Stamptember release. 

Thanks for looking ! :-)

Gorgeous set of cards. Those dies are really nice, one of the nicest font I have seen. I love how the word just overlaps the aperture in your first card.
