♥ Simon Says...Winter Inspiration ♥

Happy 1 week before Christmas Eve! And happy it's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!! This week's challenge is...Winter Inspiration! Snowflakes, snowy scenes, icicles, etc!
We have a beautiful and inspiring "Mood Board" for you created by our fabulous teammie Jenn!


This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Penny Black. I used the Crystal Trio Die Set. Such pretty snowflakes! I drenched them in White Glitter and some Stampendous Shaved Ice. I added some White Opal Liquid Pearls to the centers.


I wanted to give the Wood grain paper, from the Bo Bunny Christmas Collage Paper Pack, an icy feel to it. So I added a thick layer of Glossy Accents along the edges and then some more White Glitter. I finished it off with some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequins and sentiment from an old stamp set called Frosty Sentiments by Amy R Stamps.


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!

♥ It's the most wonderful time of year ♥

It's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week we want to see...BLING! Think sparkly glitter, shimmery pearls, gold and silver embossing powders, etc.
The Simon Says DT are showcasing products by KaiserCraft this week! Love anything Kaiser!! Their new Yuletide line is full of wonderful vintage papers and images in beautiful traditional Christmas colors. And that's exactly what I used for my card this week. :) The Yuletide 6.5 x 6.5 Paper Pad and some of the Yuletide Collectibles Die Cut Shapes. I adore that Santa image and the gold embossed music paper!


And of course I "blinged" it up with some of Santa's Magic Dust aka Doodlebug Sugar Coating Glitter! ;) I also used some of Simon's Moonshine Sequins and a Hero Arts 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!

♥ Vintage Reindeer Tag ♥

22 more days and counting...Christmas will be here before we know it! Is it me or is it sneaking up super fast?? Wow! Time flies...when you get older! ;)

So with Christmas right around the corner...this week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog is... Christmas/Holidays! 
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by Stampendous. I chose this cute vintage looking reindeer stamp called Special Delivery. And for a change, I decided to make a tag with it. I colored in the image with some Distress Markers. I added some Distress Glitter in Tarnished Brass to the bells on this cute little guy.


The "Please Deliver To:" is from the Holiday Envelope Sentiments by Simon Says Stamp. The Abby Snowflake and Alexis Snowflake Dies are by Simon as well. :) Papers are from the Christmas Collage Paper Pad by Bo Bunny. I also used lots of chunky glitter, May Arts Natural Twine, a paper doily, seam binding, pom pom trim, lace trim and White Opal Liquid Pearls.


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!
