Holiday Helpers (Stamptember! Neat and Tangled/SSS collab)

Hi there!

We're thrilled to be a part of the most exciting month of exclusive stamp releases... STAMPTEMBER!  The amazing Simon Says team asked me to illustrate a set again this year, and I'm happy to show off Holiday Helpers today:

I've been wanting to put a Santa hat on that mouse for a very long time. hee.

This set is so perfect for building scenes! I have 3 projects to show off to you today:

My first shows off the mice building a snowman, under the bear's watchful eye. I love the one mouse up on a tree stump to reach high enough!

The other mouse is patting in extra snow, I think.

My second card shows off the same kind of scene, except that the mouse on the right has the stump, and is waiting to be able to put a hat on the snowman's head. I did some masking to be able to layer the scene without dies, and doodled in some extra snow beneath the feet of the bear and mouse on the left.

I used a distress oxide ink for the blue sky, and flicked water and white paint on top for the snow.

My third project is a simple tag, but so cute with this little scene stamped out!

I hope you like the set I illustrated! It's on sale right now EXCLUSIVELY at Simon Says Stamp, and only until quantities last. In the past few years, they've sold out of our set within a few days, so hurry!
