Simon’s 2019 Holiday Release + Card Sketches & Cards!

Hi all! Simon’s 2019 Holiday release just went live, and there are so many amazing new stamps, dies, and stencils! Simon sent me nearly all of the release, and I love all of it so much that I wanted to hop on camera and walk you through everything I received. I’m missing a background stamp and a couple dies, but this is 95% of the release! So here we go!

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

Here is a list of all the new release, in the order they are shown in the video (keep scrolling for info on the cards)…

And now, onto the cards!

The first two cards feature the Leaves & Berries and Christmas Kaleidoscope background stamps. I also die cut the new snowflake dies (Marie, Lea, and Grace). The greeting was stamped using the Holiday Greetings Mix 1 stamp set.

My third card was created using the Holiday Sweater stencil and the Holiday Greetings Mix 1 stamp set. I used Peacock Feathers and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide inks.

The fourth and final card was created using the Winter Floral Layering stencils, with a bit of FineTec pearlescent watercolors painted around the edges of the design. I finished off the card with the Merry Frame die as the greeting.

    All four cards are beautiful, but that last one using the layering stencil on black card stock is absolutely gorgeous. I love this wonderful release.

  • Reply Kristie Maynard October 10, 2019 at 8:22 pm

    Great video! Love seeing the new release and the ideas you were coming up with as you showed them. I’m thinking with that gold on the edges you could use the stencil and a VersaMarker to outline the leaves and then add the gold powder. It looks great how you did it, but thought this might be a way to do the embossing. Thanks for another fun video with so many fabulous ideas. Love the cards!

  • Reply SherylH October 10, 2019 at 8:44 pm

    Thanks for showing all the new SSS releases — love, love your card with the Marie snowflake!

  • Reply ElaineFriedhaber October 17, 2019 at 7:05 am

    I am on a roll with this technique. Just finished my sixth card using your idea.
    I wish I could figure a way to show them to you. Thank you so much for your inspiring videos. I have learned so much.

    Wow, you weren’t wrong when you said this is a great release. I love the gnome stamp and dies!!!! Your card with the flowers and gold paint is stunning.
