Simon Says: Use More Than One Stamp




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


This week the challenge is 

Use More Than One Stamp 

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

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I used Penny the Platypus!Clear Stamp Set and Coordinating Die Set  to make a card and matching envelope for a very special young lady. 

Penny has been a very popular choice among the DT this week! 3 of us chose her! ;-) 


I stamped and cut Penny 3 times to create a collage/3D look and coloured Penny with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and splattered the background with Dylusions Inks.

I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape, one is from a Tim Holtz Deco Pack and the other is an older one and I can't remember who made it, but I have quite a selection of Washi Tapes and think you can never have too much! I love it! 


I love her googly eyes, isn't she a cutie ;-) 


I used this photo of a Platypus as my 'model' and thought her bill looked a bit purplish in colour so I went with that, just in case you were wondering whats going on ;-) 


The night before I made this card there happened to be a Wildlife Documentary about Platypus by David Attenborough on the telly, so interesting to watch and what a coincidence! Definitely worth watching if you have a few mins ;-) 


So now it's YOUR turn to get out your stamps and get stamping! 

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

Simon Says Stamp June Card Kit Cards

Oh my goodness, did you see the latest June Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp! It is GORGEOUS!! 

I made a couple of cards using the kit to share today.

 For this first one I stamped and white heat embossed the beautiful floral arrangement stamp directly onto the designer paper


I then stamped and coloured an individual flower and coloured using the watercolor paints in the kit plus a touch of Zig Marker Pens. I added a couple of strips of Washi Tape and White Metallic String and then added a vellum sentiment banner.


and I finished the inside by stamping the flowers using Archival Shadow Grey Ink and adding a sentiment. 


For my 2nd card I used the gorgeous  printed watercolour panel from Suzy Plantamura. I wanted to add some dimension to the panel so I carefully cut around the flowers and then coloured the panels. 



I went along the edge using a distress tool and then added a border of Prisma Glitter.


and I finished the inside. 


and this is the kit!
