simon says stamp village dies

The village dies from Simon Says Stamp cut out three little houses and two trees in different sizes. I paired these shapes with the slopes and hills dies and the small and large stitched rectangle dies to create this card.



I cut the trees and houses out of white cardstock and then colored them with copic markers. I backed the houses with a smaller piece of cardstock colored with a yellow copic marker. The snowflakes and sentiment (from an older Studio Calico stamp set, Cinnamon Spice, that is no longer available) were stamped with white pigment ink.

By the way, there's an awesome deal on my favorite cardstock, Neenah Solar White 80#, at Amazon right now. It's my favorite for copic coloring and the weight is great for card bases.

I'm linking up with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge where the theme is "just a pinch" this week. I added just a pinch of sparkle by going over the sentiment, snowflakes, and trees with a wink of stella glitter pen!

I still have so many cards to share! I'm not sure if I'll have time to get them all up before Christmas, but I'll just keep sharing and we'll get through them all eventually. :)
