♥ Polka Dotted Friend ♥

Happy Wednesday! It's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want to see...Spots and Dots! 
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Paper Smooches! I am using the super cute Friend Die. I love the style of script. The letters are not totally connected which is how I write. :) I cut it out with some black cardstock and then using a White Paint Marker, I added some polka dots to it. I then used some Glossy Accents to adhere it to the card front.  


The papers and stickers are from the Carta Bella Sew Lovely 12x12 Collection Kit. I also used some White Opal Liquid Pearls, seam binding ribbon and a handmade stick pin with a mini wooden spool.


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!

Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going great so far! :) It's time for a brand new challenge at the SUPER AMAZING Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is... Let's Be Clear! Think clear stamps, clear acetate, clear sequins, clear gems, etc!

I am using the cute You're A Hoot Clear Stamp Set by Clearly Besotted. The owls in this set are so adorable! Love the little hearts, flowers and sentiments as well. To go with the "Clear" theme, I am also using some Clear Iridescent Sequins.


The woodgrain paper is from the True Love Paper Pad by Basic Grey. I also used the following inks...Chocolate and Blueberries by Clearsnap, Black StazOn and Audrey Blue, Doll Pink and Sunshine Ink Pads by Simon Says Stamp. I also used some Doll Pink Cardstock also by Simon Says Stamp. The little Crystal Heart is by Prima.

♥ Peek-A-Boo Shaker Card ♥

I hope you all are enjoying your Summer so far. We are having lots of fun here. Enjoying relaxing family time by the pool and the beach, water balloon and water gun fights, walks on the boardwalk. Just love summer....


It's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!
This week we want you to SHAKE IT! Your cards that is! ;) We want to see a shaker or confetti packet on your creations! There are several ways to create a shaker you can make your own or buy ready made products that you can alter. 

This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing Exclusive products by Simon Says Stamp! I love the Friendship Butterflies Stamp and Die Set so much, I decided to use it again and make a Peek-A-Boo Shaker card. Love how the butterfly looks camouflaged against the woodgrain.



I added some Glossy Accents and White Glitter to the edges of the die cut butterfly and then a seam binding loop so it can be pulled off the card front to reveal the shaker. Due to it just fitting plus the glitter and ribbon, the butterfly really does stay! :)



I added some Pale Pink Sequins by Simon Says to the inside of the shaker. I also heat embossed the "Friend" using some White Embossing Powder by Hero Arts onto some teal colored paper and adhered it behind the negative die cut butterfly. 



I finished off the card with some May Arts Natural Twine, some Prima Hearts, White Opal Liquid Pearls and the little butterfly was stamped using the Cotton Candy Ink Pad also by Simon Says. The woodgrain paper is from the Base Coat III Paper Pack by Kaiser.  


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!
