♥ Simon Says...Keep it Clean and Simple! ♥

We have another new and fun challenge starting today at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

             Clean and Simple {with an option to use 1 layer}
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Hero Arts! I used this super fun Birthday Chart Stamp.  I first inked the Happy Birthday using a Ranger Mini Blending Tool and the Broken China Distress Ink Pad. I then inked the rest of the stamp with some Black StazOn. I matted the stamped image onto some Kraft Cardstock. The cute die cut Glasses are by Impression Obsession.


The paper is from the Atlantic Paper Pad by Studio Calico. I finished it off with some May Arts Natural Twine and a Hero Arts Large White Pearl.


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!

♥ Simon Says...Animal Antics ♥

Happy Wednesday everyone! Today starts a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want to see Animals!! Birds, dogs, cats, bunnies, mice, etc!


This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Stampendous! I chose this cute House-Mouse stamp called Balloon Trio. Just perfect for a kids (or adult ;) birthday card! I colored in the image with some Tim Holtz Distress Markers and then added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the balloons. Since it is a large image, I just kept it rectangle in shape and then coated the edges with some Ranger Glossy Accents and then some Chunky White Glitter.


I also used the Happy Birthday Die and the Sweet Treats Cardstock Set by Simon Says Stamp.


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!





Have a sweet day!

♥ Egg•stra Special ♥

Happy Wednesday everyone! Can you believe it is almost Easter? Another year flying by! It's also time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want to see cards for... Easter and/or Sweet Treats!

This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Basic Grey! I am using the True Love 6x6 Paper Pad. {Unfortunately, it is sold out at the moment.} Such beautiful papers!


To make the "eggs" I used Spellbinders Classic Oval Large Dies. The stamped sentiments are from the C.C. Designs Spring Logos Stamp set. I finished it off with some punched Martha Stewart Butterflies, Chunky White Glitter, May Arts Natural Twine, a Hero Arts Little Clothes pin and some White Opal Liquid Pearls.

This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Crafter's Companion! They have the cutest stamps and fabulous products including Spectrum Noir Markers! They were very generous and sent the DT some amazing goodies to play with! Thank you so much Crafter's Companion! :) I used the Ornate Accessories Cling Stamp Set (I only used the lace stamp but the set has a lot of fab stamps!) and an older stamp called Time in Paris. I colored in the image using the Cool Greys and Purples Spectrum Noir Markers. I also used some CC Ultra Smooth Premium White Cardstock.

I finished off the card, with some Prima flowers, a Maya Road Wood Button, May Arts Natural Twine, White Opal Liquid Pearls and a Doodlebug white paper Doily. I covered the wooden button with some Tim Holtz Picket Fence Distress Paint and Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter.
