Simon Says Animal Magic!


Hello, all! Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!
Thank you for joining us for the Father’s Day/For A Guy Challenge! We loved seeing your fun and innovative designs this week! Please join us this week for our brand new challenge!
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher.
This week the challenge is…


We are looking to the animal kingdom for inspiration for our ‘Animal Magic’ projects! From butterflies to buffalos, kittens to kingfishers, we will be looking forward to see which animal you choose for your project!
Many of us have fur babies that are very much a part of our family and we would love to know what little critters live with you! Maybe you could add photo’s of them on your post too!
We are showcasing Paper Smooches Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some 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.
This is my take on the Animal Magic challenge.

I have used We Adore You stamp set from Paper Smooches to make my card. My card is nearly one layer. I stamped the focal point image using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink and stamped the rest of the background with the same image with Simon Says Stamp Fog ink. I copic coloured the focal image and outlined the background images using C1 marker. I grounded the focal image and adhered the sentiment strip using foam adhesives.

We are so grateful closeup

I embellished with Rose Gold 6mm and 4mm sequins from Pretty Pink Posh and adhered the panel on brown card base.

I tried to colour the dog image on my card similar to my dog colour.  This is Charlie, my third child. Totally pampered pooch at home. We love him and cannot imagine life without him.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting!
