Hello, my beautiful crafty friends, welcome back for the new challenge. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend. This week, at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "Christmas /Winter Holidays". I was inspired to create a holiday decor using Idea-Ology Vignette Box Structure and decorated it with Tim Holtz Decorative Deer Findings and Mini Woodland Tree Lot Findings.

To start this project, I covered the Tim Holtz Vignette Box Structure with Gesso using a brush pen. The Frozen Findings was pasted on the top of the box using Tombow Mono Glue. I also attached two tiny bells on it.

I added the Christmas sentients on the wood slices and pasted the wood slices in the box. In the box, I  created some snow with modeling paste. The deers were colored with Tim Holtz metallic paint. I paint the mini Christmas trees using Ranger Spray Stain with a brush pen and added some Gesso to create some snow on it after the spray stain was dry.

The deers and Christmas trees were attached in the box using Tombow Mono Glue. To finish off this project, I added some blue paint randomly outside of the box. 

I really enjoyed creating this Christmas decor using these fun and beautiful Christmas elements on this project. Hope this holiday decor inspired you to create with us this week! Happy crafting!

Meihsia Liu Simply Paper Crafts Quick and Easy Christmas Gift Tag Simon Says Stamp Paper Artsy Prima Flower Tim Holtz 1
Hello, my lovely crafty friends! Wow... I can't believe it's December already. I hope you all enjoyed your weekend and let's get ready for the Winter and holidays! This week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, our theme is "ICY INSPIRATION". Our lovely teamie, Maura, has created this fabulous mood board to use for your inspiration.

With holidays approaching, we all need lots of holiday cards and gift tags. I was inspired to create a quick and easy mixed media Christmas gift tag so that you can make many at once using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Merry Christmas on the background, and featuring Paper Artsy Jofy Mini Lovebirds on the tag.

I started this project by trimming the watercolor paper into 3" X 5.5" tag. The background was colored with Daniel Smith watercolors and a pen brush. I stenciled the around the tag using Tim Holtz Christmas Layering Stencil and the blue ink pad. Around the edges of the tag, I dabbed the Distress Paint. After the paint was dry, I outlined the edges using Big Brush Pen with blue and black colors.

The lovebirds image was stamped using black ink pad, and colored using Daniel Smith watercolors. I covered the word "Lovebirds"and the heart with white Gesso. Instead of the lovebirds and heart image, I added the holiday sentiments around the birds and on the birds with two different fonts.
