I used Mama Elephant’s Din Sum Fun stamp set to make my card for the challenge.

How cute are these images? I love them. I stamped them using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and copic coloured the images. Then diecut the images using the coordinating dies.

For the background, I die cut a white cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Wonky Stitched Rectangle die. I masked the bottom 1/3th of the panel with masking tape and sponged the top 3/4th with Worn Lipstick and Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide inks and then masked the sponged the masked area and sponged the bottom part with Cracked Pistachio and Peacock Feathers Distress Oxide inks. I love this pretty colour combination. I then spattered the pink area with clean clear water and dabbed off the excess.

I then clustered the coloured images and adhered them as shown above. I used the tiny heart image from the stamp set and stamped them randomly using Picked Raspberry Distress Oxide ink. The sentiment is simply stamped on a strip of white cardstock and adhered below the clustered image using foam adhesives. To embellish, I used Simon Says Stamp Moonstone confetti sequins and topped with White Blizzard Novo crystal drops. This finished panel is adhered on Fog card base using foam adhesives. I really love how this card turned out considering I made them in 45 minutes from start to finish. Hope you like it.

I played with Cosmic Newton stamp set for the challenge.

I die cut a stitched rectangle panel using Bristol cardstock and Simon Says Stamp Sitched Rectangle die. Then I stamped and black heat embossed the images from Cosmic Newton stamp set. I coloured the images and background using Zig Clean Color Brush Pens and water using a brush. Then I blended Black Soot distress ink on the edges of the panel. To add texture, I spattered the panel with water and dabbed the excess off with a clean cloth. Then I spattered some opaque white for stars and Nuvo White Blizzard for sparkle and texture. Once dry, I adhered this panel on a white card base using foam adhesive. Here are some closeups.

Simon Says Snow White!

wed-newchallenge-header

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

Thank you for joining us for the Gift Tag Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Snow White

Lots of options here, you could add snow to your project or use a lot of white on your creation. We will be looking forward to seeing how you interpret this theme!

We are showcasing Reverse Confetti 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

Here is my take on the challenge. I used Reverse Confetti’s Smore Love stamp set to make my card for the challenge.

I stamped and coloured the penguins and the beanies from the stamp set using copic markers. I hand cut the penguins and the beanies out with scissors. I adhered the beanies over the penguins.To add interest, I bushed Wink of Stella clear shimmer on the scarf and beanies. added some glossy accents to the eyes and the pompom of one of the beanie and left them to dry.

I then trimmed a fog cardstock base to 5.25 x 4 inches in size. Added Novo Glimmer paste in the colour of Moonstone to falling snowflake stencil and left the panel to dry. In the meantime, I stamped the banner from Simon Says Stamp Give Thanks stamp set using Maliblue ink and sentiment also from the same stamp set using Versafine Onyx Black ink. Once dry, I hand cut the banner out. There is die for it but I don’t have the die. Anyway, I also used Simon Says Stamp Stitiched Slopes and Hills die to die cut some snow mounds. I adhered the snow mounds to the bottom of the fog panel. The first one flush to the panel and sencond using foam adhesive. Then tucked in the penguins and the sentiment on top of the panel. The panel is adhered to the white card base.

I used both the snow as well as the white from the challenge theme to create my card. Hope you like it. So now it’s YOUR turn to take out your crafty supplies and join in!
