Simon Says Stamp Kids Summer Vacation Challenge

We are here with another of our annual Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers.


It is time for all you crafters to let your children loose in your crafty corners for a few hours. Just close your eyes and set them free to explore their creativity. You are allowed to hide your Copic Markers and extra special papers and you are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to 'DO IT' themselves as much as possible.

This challenge is open to all children aged between 2 and 16 inclusive

We have not 1, not 2 but  3 surprise parcels of crafty goodies, hand picked by Simon!

For this challenge we have a very special Junior Design Team who I am sure you will agree have done an excellent job.
Please give them a warm welcome and leave comments for them on their blog posts. Thank You xx

This challenge will end on August 31st at 8am EST, 1pm UK time 2pm CET

Happy Crafting

Simon Says: Celebrate!

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

Thank you for joining us for the Add Some Texture Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


We are celebrating our 6th Anniversary here on the Monday Challenge so we thought we should celebrate in style and use our very own Simon Says Stamp Products this week!

Obviously an anniversary is an extra special occasion so this week  Simon Says Stamp will be giving away not one but TWO $50 gift vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. So we will have 2 winners this week!

We are welcoming the lovely Christine Bedford into the Designer Spotlight this week, please pop by her blog to leave her a comment. I am sure she would love to hear from you ;-)

I used a Stylish Simon Clear Stamp set and Coordinating Die  as the main focus of my card. Isn't he adorable ❤️

I started by daubing White Gesso over some Corrugated Card, from a Textured Surfaces Pack and then splattered with Tumbled Glass and Fresh Lime Inks and set aside to dry. I then moved on to making the shaker using a Birthday Frame Die and a Fuse Tool. I coloured the Woodgrain frame with round Espresso Ink, using the ink pad itself to give it a great depth of color. 

I used a Birthday Balloon Clear Stamp inked with Twisted Citron and Peacock Feathers Distress Ink  and used a length of White Twine to finish.

I decorated the inside to coordinate with the front and used a Big Birthday Wishes Stamp Set.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting!
