♥ you are No 1...friend ♥

Happy TGIF! Hope you are enjoying your day so far! I had a few extra minutes (How did that happen?) to go up to my craft room and create something for fun! :) When I saw today's Free For All Challenge at SCS, I knew I wanted to make something for it! This week's challenge is to make a one layer card and then add embellishments. So only one layer of cardstock... no extra paper layers! One layer cards are always a challenge for me, so I was looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone for this one!


I stamped the background images onto a white cardstock base using the Bo Bunny Distressed Textures Clear Stamp Set. I used various colors of Tim Holtz Distress Inks. I then added some Prima Coffee Break Ephemera and Macchiato Flower. The stamped sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Beautiful Words Clear Stamp Set. One of my favorite SSS stamp sets! I could use it over and over again! The gold sequins are also from the Prima Coffee Break Ephemera Pack.


I hope you all have a wonderful weekend!!

Hi everyone! Can you believe it is November already? Yikes! Christmas is right around the corner! :)

This week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog is...Thinking of You! 
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Prima! I used lots of goodies from their Coffee Break line! For starters, I used the 4x6 Journaling Notecards for the base of my card. I then added some fun elements from the Ephemera pack as well as some Crochet Icons, Espresso flowers and a wooden Coffee Cup Stick Pin.


I also used some Prima Coffee Break Crystals and I coated the Wood Coffee Cup in some Prima Pink and White Art Sugar. The stamped "Thinking of You" is from the Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You Stamp Set.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥ Colorful Butterfly Blueprint ♥

Happy Wednesday to you all! It's time for another brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! It's every one's favorite...ANYTHING GOES!

This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing Spectrum Noir products! I used the Primaries Colored Pencils Set. I must admit these are my first time using these pencils are they are fabulous!! Love the colors and the way they blend.


I would first color a section of the Tim Holtz Butterfly Sketch with a light shade and then blend it in with 1 of the Paper Stumps and then add a medium and darker shade over the lighter one, each time blending it in with a stump. When I was finished coloring in the butterfly, I added a coating of Glossy Accents over the image. I then cut the butterfly out and adhered it over another image of the sketch.


I also used some Tim Holtz Collage Papers, White Opal Liquid Pearls, seam binding, a vintage button and the alphabet and hello tag are from the Simon Says Butterflies Clear Stamp Set.


And don't forget, the super sweet and generous Heidi will give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!

♥♥♥ BONUS! And Spectrum Noir is giving away to 1 lucky winner their choice of 2 sets of Colored Pencils! :)
