Art Impressions/Simon Says Stamp – STAMPtember 2021 – Hug in a Mug Card

Hello Ai Fans!!!

Today I am so excited to show you the brand new “Hug in a Mug” stamp set!

This stamp set was created for Simon Says Stamp for the “STAMPtember” celebration! This is a limited edition set and will be available through Simon Says Stamp. If you love this set….and can’t live without it….then be sure to order it right away so that you don’t miss out!

To set the scene for todays card and video I have created a wintery evening backdrop! In order to do this I used the lamp posts from the Ai Christmas Wonder Set (4936) and my Distress Oxide Inks to create the reflection of light along my little pathway. I’ll show you how to quickly and easily create this light effect with your foam applicators and sponge daubers.

To do our coloring we will be using the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens! We will also add an easel to the back of this card creation so that the recipient can easily display it for the holidays!

And for a finishing touch, we will add a cute sentiment from this same set and a few little red hearts for added dimension and sparkle!
