For this weeks challenge I have created two different Christmas Gift Tags featuring lots of Simon's lovely products. 

To create this little tag I stamped Simon's Christmas Sweater background stamp in Versamark Watermark ink onto white card stock & heat embossed it using white embossing powder. 
I stamped the cute Nutcracker image & baubles form the Retro Christmas stamp set in Memento ink onto X-Press Copic card stock & coloured the image with copics. The "To You From Me" sentiment stamp is also from the same Retro Christmas stamp set.
I fussy cut my little Nutcracker & baubles, added a little sparkle & then foam mounted them onto my tag. I then added some May Arts Twine & Nuvo Morning Dew Crystal Drops to finish.

The copic colours I've used are -
skin - E11, E00, E000, R30, hair - C3, C1, C00, mouth - R59, R56, R39, clothes - E35, E33, E31 / YR24, YR21, YR20 / C9, C7, C5. baubles - E44, E43, E41 / E42, E41, E40 / W4, W2, W0 / C3, C1, C00.


My second tag today features Simon's lovely Holiday Tree Medallion stencil which I have stenciled on white card stock in Broken China distress ink. I then added some flicks of colour using some other distress inks in Faded Jeans & Salty Ocean & also added some tiny drops of Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops to the background.
I die cut the word "Winter" from Simon's Winter Snow wafer die set in blue glitter card from Heidi Swapp's Marquee paper pad & die cut a couple of pretty snowflakes using Simon's Stitched Snowflakes die & popped these on my tag along with some twine & larger crystal drops.

My second card today features a die from Simon Says Stamps new release
& is called Holly Oval Frame.

There are so many gorgeous products in this new release that I want them all lol.
I created this card when I was really poorly & as my head was absolutely pounding so I chose to create it very simply and even that was a struggle at the time!

I created a simple water colour wash background with Primas Pastel Dreams Water Color Confections set & die cut my Holly Oval Frame using Hero Arts Woodgrain card stock. I also used Simon Says Stamps & Dies On A String set from the STAMPtember release & stamped the snowflakes and sentiment using Simon's Audrey Blue, Deep Sea & Surf Blue ink pads.
I used foam pads to mount the Holly Oval Frame & also some of the snowflakes to add more dimension to my card & finished with some Simply White Crystal Drops.
