Blessed Christmas

Hello Crafters!

Here we are to a brand new challange over Simon Says Stamp!


This week’s theme over Simon Says Stamp Monday Challange is “Christmas Gift” and we are showcasing our dear “Simon Says Stamp brand”. You do not need to use Simon Says Stamp products in order to partecipate but we would surely love it you do! We always are curious to see how others uses our products!

For this week’s theme I made a pillow box and altered it with gesso and paint. I used the Pillow Box Sizzix Die, I toned down the patterned paper with a bit of gesso and water and I let it dry. With the new stamp set from Simon Says Stamp I added some background details, i love this stamp for backgrounds because it is geometric and I love geometric stamps!


The main image is this beautiful stamp of a deer. I had to fussy cut it (which i HATTTTTTTE) but the lovely team over Simon says stamp made sure to coordinate this stamp with a die set! So if you are like me a fussy cut-hater you are all set! LOL

I used the black in from the Simon Says Stamp ink pad collection and I glued it to the background with some strong adhesive.


Before adhering the deer and the sentiment, I of course had to wrap the pillow box with a thread. I secured it to the pillow box so that it does not fall off.

I tied a knot on the top and we are done!

For this challange Simon Says Stamp kindly offers a $50 gift voucher to shop over Simon Says Stamp!
