Simon Says: Add A Sentiment




Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Add A Sentiment 


We are showcasing Clearly Besotted Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by and see what our lovely guest, Donna, and the DT have made! All so gorgeous!! :-)

I used an adorable Best Birthday Stamp Set, and Coordinating Die Set.

I love all of the balloons in this set but my fave has to be this super cute panda 😍


I simply stamped the panda using Simon's Intense Black Ink, shaped it using an embossing tool and popped it in front of a lovely Stitched Window Frame. The sentiment is in the same stamp set and I finished with a little Washi Tape. 



So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.





You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Simon's Best friends ;-)

Hi all, I made this card to join in with the Sunday Stamps Challenge. When I saw the fabulous sketch I just knew that these new little  'Best Friends'  images would be perfect to pop into the little square elements ;-) 


I started by die cutting the squares out of the panel, backing that with acetate and and then making little square frames to pop into the apertures. I coloured the critters with col and warm grey copic markers and kept the whole design fairly CAS, just adding some little heart stickers for a pop of colour.


and I finished the inside

Simon Says: Birds Of A Feather










Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Birds Of A Feather 
This week we are challenging you to create something with birds or feathers, or you might like to think of some other meaning for the phrase!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
Please pop by and see what our super talented guest Amber and the DT have made!! AWESOME!! 


I used a beautiful Hero Arts Color Layering Peacock and coordinating dies as the focus of my card. Isn't it stunning! I also used the Peacock Laying Ink Cube Set, specifically chosen to go with this set. 


 For the background I used a Peacock Feathers Stencil and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and Paper Artsy Infusions along with a Bubble Stencil and White Embossing Paste. Before it was dry I also sprinkled with Prisma Glitter, so pretty and sparkly IRL ;-) 


Artsy angle
