Gift It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Christmas shopping was a success & I'm pleased to say all presents are bought & wrapped, so I just have Christmas cards to write & post now.
Today I have a longer than usual post to share as I am playing catch up & sharing two cards and also my DT project after having a few technical issues with my lap top which are thankfully now resolved :)

It's Wednesday which means -

& this week our challenge is
Make a gift, gift wrap, gift box, gift bag, gift tag, you get the idea!

This week the design team are featuring

This week I have created a simple gift tag using MFT's Jumbo Fishtail Banner die to create the base and die cut it using Simon's lovely Sea Glass card stock. I also die cut some white card stock using the next size down die & I then blended some Sea Glass ink in the center. 
I have die cut the beautiful Eliza snowflake using Silver Screen card stock and attached it to my tag & stamped a sentiment from Simon's Joy To The World stamp set in Audrey Blue ink

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon has again released lots of lovely new products for DieCember! There really are so many gorgeous goodies in this release, I absolutely love the glitter card stock.

I have created a card using Simon's new Joy To The World Stamp Set & stamped a cute nativity scene with them.

I coloured the images with my copics but got a bit carried away with the colouring and totally forgot to write the copic numbers down, sorry! I heat embossed the stars and then added some pretty sparkle to them using a Wink Of Stella clear glitter marker.


I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crafty Creations - anything goes, Crafting From The Heart - anything goes,  Inspiration Destination - anything goes, Lemon Shortbread - anything goes, Creative Moments  anything goes, The Crafty Addicts - anything goes, Create & Makes - anything goes

My last card today features the adorable little Picture Book Happy Penguin wafer die from the DieCember release.

I die cut Simon's 3 Sided Scallop wafer die to create my base and embossed a snowfall background using Taylored Expressions Snowfall embossing folder I die cut the cute penguin in black and white glitter card stock and popped him onto the card & added a heat embossed sentiment from Simon's Joy To The World stamp set. To finish I added a few Gloss White Crystal Drops on to some of the embossed snowflakes to add some dimension to my card.
