Hi all! Today is Day 11 of the Holiday Card Series. It’s also my usual day to share some inspiration for the latest card kit from Simon Says Stamp. I thought since the December 2017 Card Kit was holiday themed, it would be perfect for Day 11! For those who are are new to my blog and videos, the Holiday Card Series consists of 25 holiday card inspiration videos. I’ll be sharing holiday inspiration every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday until December 20.

For the first card, I stamped the gingerbread man from the Christmas Squad stamp set multiple time across the card front. I also stamped the “From our squad to yours” greeting below the gingerbread men. I colored the images using Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. Then I finished off the bottom of the card by adhering silver glitter paper and striped patterned paper from Doodlebug’s Milk & Cookies 6×6 paper pad included in the kit.
For the second card, I stamped the tree and Santa images from the Christmas Squad stamp set onto some cream cardstock and colored them with the same colored pencils. I fussy cut the images and painted the edges with a black brush tip marker. I then adhered silver glitter paper and red and white striped patterned paper to a Desert Storm card base (similar to the first card). Then I stamped the “Christmas is Claus for celebration” greeting and adhered the tree and Santa using foam adhesive.
To add a bit of color and sparkle, I adhered some of the Colorful Confetti Sequins in the kit to the ornament areas on the Christmas tree. I also added some shimmer using a Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen.
