Happy Friday, friends! Did you know that Simon Says Stamp has a Limited Edition Christmas Card Kit every year? This year's kit is incredible and filled to the brim with amazing products for all your holiday paper crafting. I used a fraction of the kit, creating some quick and easy cards with pre-mades and some more intricate cards with the stamps, and even a gift tag!

This year's Limited Edition 2019 Christmas Card Kit is right down my alley. Full of amazing patterned papers, stamps, ephemera, puffy stickers, Stickles Glitter Glue, matching envelopes, and so much more. It is so, so good. Let's get started!
These first two cards are quick and easy. Showcasing the LDRS Christmas Cottage Patterned Papers, kraft cardstock, Tim Holtz Christmas Idea-ology Stickers, side fold cards, envelopes, and Carta Bella Christmas Market Puffy Stickers from the kit. That cute skinny frame? That is the Mama Elephant Delancey Creative Cuts die!
The next card and tag are one of my favorite holiday color combinations: silver/black/white. The background of the card is a LDRS Christmas Cottage Patterned Paper. The large pre-made die cut greeting, stars, tag, and bells are from the My Mind's Eye Yuletide Ephemera pack in the kit. The card was finished with sticker phrases from the Tim Holtz Christmas Idea-ology Stickers .
This beauty was created by trimming the Green Apple Cardstock from the kit to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and stamping poinsettias, greenery, and a sentiment from the Magic of Christmas Stamp Set with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors in Bluish Gold and White were splattered over the background for a "snowy" background. Silver watercolor from the same set was used with a medium water brush pen to color in the poinsettias.
The Stickles Glitter Glue was used to decorate the panel as shown.
For my final card share today I trimmed kraft cardstock from the kit to 4 1/4" x 5 1/2". An image and the word "Christmas" from the Magic of Christmas Stamp Set was stamped on the panel with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The images were colored in with Polychromos Colored Pencils in the following colors:
Berries: White, Deep Red, Dark Red
Leaves: White, Earth Green Yellowish, Permanent Green Olive
Branch: Burnt Umber
Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors in White was splattered over the background for a "snowy" look.
The word "blessings" from the Magic of Christmas Stamp Set was stamped on Green Apple Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder before being die cut with a Nested Banner Die and adhered to the card with foam adhesive.
