Hello Friends, How have you been? Have you been checking out all of the special collaborations on the Simon Says Stamp blog during this special time of STAMPtember® ? There are some pretty cool exclusive stamps sets that are just for sale during STAMPtember® only. For example, these adorable “Super Duo” images and this set from Tim Holtz. I am currently using the one from Lawn Fawn and get to share on my blog next week!! Exciting stuff 🙂
Some of these goodies on my shaped card today I will be using next week for a totally NON holiday card. The stamp set called, “Nativity” can be used for a quick card or you can take some time and make a super special card with it.
Sometimes I find it really relaxing to just really take my time creating card and add lots of details for a special person. Below is a step by step for you on adding the details and assembly of my card. I hope you enjoy it and find it useful. On the category tab “TUTORIALS” on my blog you can find lots more if you like this kinda thing 🙂
