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

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

This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

This week we are showcasing Newton’s Nook Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge 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

On April 28th and 29th the awesome Simon’s Create Event is taking place. This event is so popular that it has sold out but the good news is that if you are anywhere in the area, there will be a pop-up store all weekend with create and takes too ! How fantastic is that ?! For further details please CLICK HERE !

I have used Newton Nooks Beautiful Nooks stamp set to make my card.

This is a quick and easy card with my favourite watercolouring technique. I white heat embossed the images on the bottom of the panel. Then used Zig clean brush pens to colour the images and the background. The paper I used is Bristol cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Encouragement stamp set and heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder. I then trimmed the panel, added a strip of gold mirror cardstock and adhered on a Kraft card base using foam adhesives. To finish the card, I added yellow twine and woodgrain enamel dots. Love the sentiment. I think it will make anyone happy to receive a card with this sentiment. The doodle images are beautiful. Here are couple of closeups of the card.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Simon Says Showers and/or Flowers!

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

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

We will be back soon with the lucky winners of the $50 Vouchers

This week the challenge is

Showers and/or Flowers 

This week we are showcasing Prima Products . You don’t have to use them for the challenge 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

I framed my card panel for this challenge. I used a standard card front size white cardstock to sponge Cracked Pistachio distress oxide ink on the Oval of Flowers stencil from Simon Says Stamp. Then to make the background tone on tone, I sponged the same distress oxide colour on the entire background. Then Vintage Photo distress oxide on the edges of the panel. I stamped the sentiment from Hand lettered stamp set from Simon Says Stamp using Versafine Onyx Black ink. The flowers and leaves are from Prima Marketing. They are called Dora and Winnie Bedtime Stories collection. I assembled and glued them into a cluster framing the sentiment. Instead of making a card, I adhered this panel on a pink pattern paper on the background and to a shadow frame. I think the sentiment and flowers fit the theme of the challenge. The frame is awesome to keep on a console table or bedside table. Here are some closeups.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

This week we are showcasing Lawn Fawn Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge 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

I took the colours and spring theme to make my project for the challenge.
I have used scalloped Box Pop Up card die as well as Watercolor Wishes Petite 6×6 paper pad from Lawn Fawn to make my pop up card for the challenge. I have combined these two products from Lawn Fawn with Simon Says Stamp’s Some Bunny stamp set to make my card. This is a spring themed card for me. The bunny and other images are watercoloured using Zig pens on Bristol cardstock. Hand cut out. I also used Simon Says Stamp Slopes and Hills dies to add landscapes for the images to sit on. Here are more photos of the pop up card.
