Simon Says Stamp From All of Us Blog Hop and Giveaway


Hello, and welcome to my stop on the Simon Says Stamp "From All Of Us" Blog Hop
Today I am joining in with some friends as we celebrate Simon Says Stamp's newest product release. If you have not started from the beginning, please head HERE to the Simon blog.
I decided to create a card with the adorable Simon and Dexter Christmas set. I stamped and heat embossed Simon and one of the gifts, then coloured with my Gansai Tambi watercolours. I die cut the images with the matching dies, then added them to more watercolour paper die cut with a Stitched Rectangle.
 Christmas Dog by Lucy Abrams
I mounted the panel onto some Lipstick cardstock, adding some gold cord and a wooden clothes pin.
Christmas Dog 2 by Lucy Abrams
As soon as my daughter Lily (aged nearly 4) saw my paints on the table, she wanted to get involved. She just loves painting, and watercolouring is her new favourite thing. So I gave her a couple of the new and beautiful Holiday Watercolor Doodles prints by Suzy Plantamura. These prints are gorgeous - just colour and they are good to go. My daughter painted the prints, then decorated with sequins and Stickles
Lily's Christmas Cards
All her own work - she even die cut them into Stitched Rectangles. I just mounted them onto some Lipstick and Green Leaf card for her.
Lily's Christmas Cards 2
Aren't they gorgeous - she's just crazy about rainbow colours. :)

Simon with those cute reindeer antlers is absolutely stinking cute! Love the CAS design you've used and the twine and the peg gives this so much lovely texture.
Then you shared your daughter's cards too - you have a mini artist on your hands Lucy - I am amazed that a four year old could colour those panels so well and the placement of the sequins too is perfect. You definitely have a mini artist/stamper on your hands and I look forward to seeing more of her creations in future. Fabulous idea and inspiration, thanks for the hop and thank you for sharing beautiful art with us Karen x
