Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp DieCember 2021 | Dash Away All

Seasons Greetings friends! I'm so excited to be sharing some more holiday inspiration with you today and to celebrate a special event. Tim Holtz has revealed a brand new, limited edition, exclusive die set designed for Simon Says Stamp! Customers who purchase at least $25 of any Tim Holtz product and get this die set as a gift from Simon Says Stamp while supplies last!

Now that you know all the details let me share this Greetings of the Season Christmas Card I created using this new die set.

Greetings of the Season Christmas Card by Juliana Michaels featuring Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp Diecember Die

I started by die cutting the Santa and his reindeer from black Kraftstock and the Moon from gold Metallic Kraftstock.  I then played around with the placement of these pieces to determine where I wanted to position the stars on a piece of Distress Heavystock. Once I had that figured out, I used temporary adhesive to hold the die in place and ran it through my die cutting machine. Because I used Heavystock, (which is a thicker paper) I had to use a die pick to poke out the stars. Yes, this takes a little time, but it is so worth it! I then ink blended the paper using Distress Oxide in Prize Ribbon, Chipped Sapphire and Villainous Potion using a blending tool.

Next, I stamped some trees along the bottom using the Tim Holtz STAMPtember Stamp Set (designed exclusively for Simon Says Stamp) using Black Soot Archival Ink. This stamp set was a limited edition, so it is sold out, but if you don't have it you could also use the Winterscape Stamp Set to create the same look.

Before starting on the sentiment, I made sure the ink was thoroughly dry. I knew I was going to emboss the sentiment and I didn't want embossing powder sticking everywhere. I also rubbed over the entire piece with an anti-static pouch just to be on the safe side. I then stamped the sentiment from Christmastime Number Three Stamp Set with embossing ink and then heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.

To complete the card, I trimmed the card front down and adhered it to a piece of gold metallic kraftstock and then onto another layer of black kraftstock.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you enjoyed this Greetings of the Season Christmas Card I created featuring the Tim Holtz Simon Says Stamp Diecember Die!
Finished Card Size: A2 - 4.25 x 5.5 inches
