Simon Says: We’re Seeing Stars!

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

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

This week the challenge is

We’re Seeing Stars 

This week we are showcasing My Favorite Things 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 a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Here is my take on the challenge. I used MFT’s Striking up the Band stamp set and coordinating dies to make my card.

Die cut a stitched rectangle panel using the blue pattern paper from Watercolor Wash Brights patter paper pack. Then I used Simon Says Stamp’s Stacked Stars die to die cut some glitter stars and adhered on the top of the stitched rectangle panel. On the bottom of the panel, I adhered the stamped, copic coloured and die cut the images from Striking Up the Band stamp set. The sentiment is stamped on Simon Says Stamp Fog cardstock, trimmed and adhered on top of the stars background. The finished  panel is adhered on a white card base. Here is a closeup.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Simon Says Use Plaid

 

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

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

This week the challenge is

Use Plaid

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 a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I love plaid pattern and more so the rainbow plaid pattern. I used the rainbow plaid pattern paper from Perfectly Plaid Paper Pad from Lawn Fawn along with Simon Says Stamp Summer Flowers stamp set to make my card for the challenge.

I used the masking technique to stamp couple of images from the Summer Flowers stamp set on the right edge of white cardstock panel. I placed the panel next to the rainbow diagonal plaid pattern paper for guidance and to pick the colours to colour the image. I am not going for a realistic colouring of the flowers and leaves. This is more stylised version. The images are coloured using copic markers in the rainbow fashion. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages stamp set stamped on the panel directly. I trimmed the panel about 3/4th of an inch from the left side.

On the card front, I adhered a strip of the rainbow pattern paper from Lawn Fawn’s Perfectly Plaid patter paper pad. I die cut the border in black using one of the border die from Pretty Pink Posh’s Stitched Border 1 die set. I adhered this border to the coloured and stamped panel. This panel is now adhered on the card using foam adhesives. Black sequins ties in the black border and black image outlines. Here are some closeups of the card.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Simon Says Summer Sunshine!

 

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

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

We will be back soon with the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher

This week the challenge is

Summer Sunshine 

This week we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp 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 a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

I feel really weird now sharing this card because in my world, it is cold, dark, windy and pouring rain. And I am sharing a cool summer card. I live down under and my weather is opposite to the northern hemisphere. While you guys are enjoying beautiful summer, I am shivering and wet here. I wish there was a bit of sunshine today as it would have helped me take better photographs of my card. Anyway, I used the new So Cool stamp set and coordinating dies from One of Kind release from Simon Says Stamp to make my card for the challenge.

Here is how I made this card:

  1. I white heat embossed several of the popsicles from So Cool stamp set on Bristol paper.
  2. Watercoloured the popsicles in pastel colours using Zig clear colour brush pens
  3. Once dry, I placed a paper on the embossed image and used a hot iron to heat the white embossing and the embossing sticks to the paper on top. This gives a clean flat image.
  4. I used the coordinating dies to die cut them out.
  5. I die cut the sticks, watercoloured them similarly and adhered below the popsicles.
  6. Then I added glossy accents drips to give the melting effect on the popsicles and left to dry.
  7. The card base is white and I adhered a stitched rectangle Fog cardstock on the card front using foam adhesives.
  8. I die cut another Bristol paper using a smaller stitched rectangle die and brushed the panel with the same pastel watercolour.
  9. This will be the platform for the pile of popsicles. I then piled up all my popsicles on this panel. Some glued flush and some using foam adhesives.
  10. The sentiment is simply stamped using black ink, trimmed and adhered top of the popsicles pile.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
