When I saw this stamp set from Simon Says Stamp during their Stamptember 2022 release I knew I just had to have it. And then I started seeing some of the design projects using it and it further emphasized how awesome this set was going to be!
Again, I have to give credit where credit is due and thank the amazing Nichol Spohr for her card inspiration – watch her YouTube video here. I loved it so much that I had to attempt a recreation of my own.
At first I tried her method of inking the embossing folder, but that turned into a hot mess, so I abandoned that plan and instead embossed direct and then coloured using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. This also allowed me to emboss the design, rather than deboss the design like Nichol did in her version.
I also coloured my characters a little differently and added some glitter sparkle, but the idea was very much the same.
I think this is my favourite card design from this season – I always have one. And I can definitely see these characters making a comeback for Christmas 2023.
