Simon Says ,,,,, Be Inspired by Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales :-)

Thanks for all your fabulous entries to our Halloween/Goth challenge :-) There were some very cute, but spooky cards and creations and some that were really quite scary ! All of them were fabulous and so creative ,, such a talented lot of bloggers you are !! I know that the DT get loads of inspiration from you, especially me so thank you all xx

This week Simon Says ,,,,,

Be Inspired by a Nursery Rhyme or Fairy Tale

oohh ,,,,sitting and reading our children bedtime stories and watching Cinderella or Peter Pan,, repeatedly ,,, happy days ,,:-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too

Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is invariably some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty !!

The Design Team arew showcasing Magnolia stamps and products this week. You don't HAVE to use them to join in but if you have them then why not use them !

For my card I used this very cute Frosty with Snowflake image, I think he is one of THE cutest snowmen around ! I stamped him with Memento Ink onto Neenah card, masked him and then stamped the Snowy Circle behind him and while the mask was still there sprayed the background with Copics ( B02 and B01) using a copic air brush, then sprayed with diamond glimmer mist, very shimmery and gorgeous IRL :-). I stamped another Frosty, coloured him very simply, cut him out, added Polar White Flower Soft to his hat and used pop dots to stick him to the card :-) The papers are Magnolia from the Fairytale pack and I added some gorgeous American Crafts Garland ribbon, a Spellbinders snowflake, glittered with Art Institute Glitter and finished with a Doodlebug Sugar Coated brad and a few Hero Arts gems. Of course I used liberal amounts of stardust stickles for extra sparkle Smile

Thanks for looking :-) Nancy and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see them.
