This week I am featuring Creative Expressions Ho Ho Ho mini expressions die and I couldn't not use Simon Says Stamps adorable little Santa with it from Simon's Christmas Cheer stamp set. I received this lovely stamp set in Simon's December Card Kit which has sold out but you can buy this Christmas Cheer stamp set and the others elements of the kit separately in store

The background was kept simple and I created it by stamping some of the other stamps from the Christmas Cheer stamp set onto kraft card stock using Simon's White pigment ink and I added some small gems to the center of my snowflakes.

I coloured little Santa with my copics and then fussy cut and foam mounted him onto my background. I die cut my Ho Ho Ho sentiment twice using silver glitter card stock and layered them together to add some dimension.

The copic colours I've used are -
R89, R59, R39 / C3, C1, C00 / W4, W2, W0 / N9, N7, N6

 I recycled a gift box that I was given a bracelet in and used Sunny Studios Cable Knit embossing folder to create a lovely textured background for my gift box. 

I added lots of lovely embellishments and really enjoyed creating this little gift box as I've created so many CAS cards lately that it was nice to create something different for a change.

Simon Says DieCember®

Good morning & happy 1st of December!
I know lots of people look forward to this day as they decorate their Christmas trees, & in the crafty world there is also lots to look forward to as it's time for Simon Says Stamp's fabulous DieCember®

DieCember Reveal

I have created a CAS card with just one of the lovely new dies available today.


I die cut the You're Doing Awesome die using some Gold Mirror card stock & also some of Simon's Mini Stars using  Simon Says Stamp's Black card stock and adhered them to my card. 

I wanted to keep with the classic black & gold theme with my white background and added a few of Simon's Treasure Chest sequins & some Ebony Black Nuvo Crystal Drops to finish.

You're Doing Awesome
The DieCember® collection is available in store now and don't forget to keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp store blog for special features, sales, education & inspiration featuring die cutting.
