Believe in the Magic of Christmas

Hello and welcome! By now you know about the gorgeous release from Simon Says Stamp! Believe In the Season is the name of the new release and you can find all the new release products at Simon Says Stamp store.

I received the most awesome stamp set from the release from Heidi on Friday - BELIEVE! Absolutely love the sentiments in the stamp set. And its is a versatile sentiments which can be used for various cards other than holiday card. I really love the sentiment "Believe in the magic of Christmas" Christmas always feels like magic to me with lots of colours, festivities, happiness and food! So I used this sentiment from the stamp set and combined with the previously released stamp set called An Arctic Christmas to make my card.

Believe card 2

I die cut the kraft card stock using Mama Elephant scalloped rectangle die. Then stamped the image from An Arctic Christmas stamp set using white pigment ink. Then used copic marker to colour the image. I did not used any shading as I love the muted colours on Kraft card stock.

I also brushed some of the areas on the copic coloured image with Wink of Stella clear shimmer pen. Then I white heat embossed the sentiment form Believe stamp set on top of the panel. To fill in the gaps, I scatter stamped the stars from An Arctic Christmas stamp set using white pigment ink and coloured with yellow copic marker. I mounted this panel on a white card base and added some Nuvo Glitter drops on the top half of the panel.

I particularly love the traditional muted colours on Kraft card panel. Something is magic about it! I have listed all the supplies I used to make this card, below.

Christmas Shaker Tags!

Oh Hello everyone,
Hope you are having a great day! How is the transition of seasons happening at your place? Perth is getting warmer finally. I am going into spring with cooler mornings and evenings. So happy to see some sunshine. I know for many of you living in the northern hemisphere are in Autumn. I live down under. We have had a unusual long cold winter. It is so exciting to have a gorgeous spring day.

Anyway, I have been busy yesterday and made a set of shaker Christmas tags using Taylored Expressions stamp set and dies.


I have used Tag Stacklet 3 and Stitched Circle Stacklet dies to create my shaker frame and backing for the shaker tags. I used the second largest Tag Stacklet 3 and fourth stitched circle die from Stitched Circle Stacklet placed in the middle to die cut four white tag frames. I adhered circle acetate sheet behind the frames.
For the background, I die cut four stitched white circle from third stitched circle die. I sponged TE dye inks on the background. On two of the circles, I sponged Lemon Meringue, Cookie Monster. The other two are sponged with Plum Punch and Cookie Monster. I stamped two of them with Birch Tree background stamp using Sugar Cube ink and the other two with Earl Grey dye ink.
The focal point images are from Santa's Helper stamp set which are stamped using Oreo hybrid ink, copic coloured and die cut using the coordinating dies. I adhered them on the base circle with foam adhesives. How cute are they with their santa hats?
I put the shaker tag together with couple of them with Snow Flurries sequins and the other two with Build a Scene sequins. I gold heat embossed the sentiment from the same stamp set on Cherry Pop card stock. I hand cut them out and adhered on the shaker tags. Finally I added couple of bells for each tag and tie the gold twine into a bow. Here the individual tag photos.
