Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp!

Simon Says Stamp World Card Making Day 2017

Happy World Card Making Day from Simon Says Stamp! It’s a holiday created just for all of us, and we’re excited to share inspiration with you!

World Card Making Day was created in 2006, and the original purpose was to kick-start the holiday card making season. Chances are you make lots of cards for Christmas, but we all know that those beautiful cards don’t come together in one night. So grab your scissors and adhesives and cardstock and stamps and make some cards today! Your family can fend for themselves, right? You deserve to celebrate.

Two of the best things about card making are inspiration and creative connections, and today we’re bringing you both with inspiring creations from designers in 5 different countries!  Each designer has created a holiday card using the Simon Exclusive Chunky Christmas stamp set from our 2020 STAMPtember® release.

Let’s take a journey around the globe and be inspired. And stick with us, because there are prizes to be won, because every good holiday deserves gifts!

Amy Rysavy resides in Saskatchewan, and it seems fitting that she chose Canadian Maple Leaf red as the main colour (see what I did there?) in her two cards. In addition to the Chunky Christmas stamp, she used the Leafy Christmas dies to create the pretty tree for her card on the left.

If you’ve ever watched and listened to a Debby Hughes video, you’ve had the pleasure of hearing her soothing Scottish accent. In true Debby style, she added a soft and lovely layer of prettiness behind components of the Chunky Christmas stamp set. She used the Prismatic Snowflakes stamp set to achieve this look.

  6. Lovely inspiration for the Chunky Christmas. Interesting to see the different takes on the same item and what imaginations do with the product.

  7. Beautiful cards. I have tried for 2 days but can not get my WCMD cards to load on your linky. I have them all posted on my Instagram account under SentSue.

    1. Sue, I also tried for days and couldn’t get it to work for me. I went and pin them my pinterest board then linked them and it worked. Hope this helped.

    2. Sue, I wasn’t able to link mine from my IG account either. I had to post them on my blog, and then it worked. Seems strange to me but I tried the past several days, too, and no luck with adding from IG. Good Luck!

  8. All the cards are amazing! I am very inspired and want to spend some time making cards!! I just need to find the time!

  9. What beautiful cards – I love them all, but I have to admit that Debbie Hughes’ gorgeous, delicate colours really grabbed me. You have such brilliant designers, SSS and they are such an inspiration to all of us. Thank you all for sharing your designs and talents with us, and of course SSS for the brilliant products that make all these beautiful cards possible.

  10. Happy WCMD everyone!! What fun to take this tour around the world to see what crafters are making. Inspiration comes in all colors and forms!

  11. I saw many beautiful creations! I tried to upload my image unfortunately it’s my first time trying to do something like and was unsuccessful – maybe next time!
