Simon Says Stamp Kid’s Challenge!

 Hi all and welcome to 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 card is made by my daughter Aditi who is 13. 
She loves to draw and sketch. Any free paper will have atleast some doodle on it. When I asked her if she is happy to make a card for the challenge, she gladly accepted. About the same time, we had seen The Jurassic World. She is crazy about the raptors and wanted to draw them. So this is one of the raptors from her sketch. She also coloured them with copic markers. Yes, my copic markers were raided without my knowledge 🙁  She cut the raptor by hand and made a card. The raptor is grounded using Sliding Slope die cut from Simon Says Stamp and pattern paper.  The sentiment is stamped on Talk Bubbles 2 die. The sentiment is from Dinomite stamp set from Clearly Besotted. I think the stamp set is retired now. That was the only dinosaur stamp set in my collection. She finally embellished with some enamel dots.
Encourage your child to participate in the challenge
So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

  3. WOW! Looks like the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. Aditi is one talented girl, like her Mum. Tell her for me that this is an amazing piece of work. The color, composition, embellishment, just everything, is really well done. I fully expect to see her name on a masterpiece hanging in some gallery or museum some day.
