Simon Says ,,,, Follow Dawny’s Sketch :-)

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Thanksgiving/Thank You Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

To those of you who will be celebrating Thanksgiving, on behalf of the Simon Says Stamp Team, we wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving and we hope you have a super time with your family and friends.

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


 We are showcasing Stamps Happen products this week. If you have them we would love to see them but it's not compulsory to join in :-)

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

I used this very cute Stamps Happen Chillin’ Penguin stamp,,, easy to colour and perfect for quick cards ! :-) 

I love making shaker cards for younger children, not too young tho, don’t want babies getting into the Twinklets Diamond Dust, I think this is a perfect shaker stuff because it is a little heavier than normal glitter and shakes and falls nicely :-)

Close Up 

 here he is an a proper snow drift lol :-)

Our fabulous GD, Barb, used the same stamp as me and it is lovely to see how someone else uses the same image and layout and creates a completely different look :-) Please hop over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see what everyone made :-)

As most of you will know I recently bought a Silhouette Cameo machine and I have to say ,,, again ,,, how much I LOVE it !! and it is BRILLIANT for making all sorts of cool stuff !! :-) When I saw this fab Christmas ornament box I thought it would be perfect for this challenge :-)

I had a 12x12 pack of Papermania Luxury Laser card that I have had for a couple of years, gathering dust, and I thought it would be great for this ! I also printed the sentiment and cut the banner on the machine and I popped some acetate in the aperture.

Of course I then had to make a bauble to pop in it !! 
I used white  neenah card , cut it on the Silhouette, used a Hero Arts Flourish  stamp and embossed with white powder, swirled Stormy Sky Distress ink over the top then sprayed with studio calico shine ,,,, so shimmery IRL. I finished with ribbons from the  Crafty Ribbons Store.
Thanks for looking :-) the DT have made some gorgeous creations so hop on over to the challenge blog to see themSmile
