Simon Says Something New!


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.

Happy New Year!! We hope you all have a happy and healthy 2018!

This week the challenge is

Something New

Maybe you received some new craft supplies for Christmas, or maybe you would like to make a New Home, New Baby project. Whatever ‘new’ thing you would like to make we will be looking forward to seeing your project!

We are showcasing Hero Arts  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


I used the beautiful Dream Big stamp set and coordinating die set from Hero Arts. This is a new stamp set and die for me.

Here is how I made the card.

  1. I created the background using distress inks Salty Ocean, Mermaid Lagoon, Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concord, Seedless Preserve, Gathered Twigs and Ground Espresso. Sponge and blend till you get a nice blending background.
  2. I spattered water on the blue sponged area and dabbed off the excess. Then spattered Opaque white for stars.
  3. Black heat emboss the images on bristol paper and watercolour the images. The die cut them using coordinating dies.
  4. The images are adhered on the card front. Some flush with glue and some with 3M scotch foam tape.
  5. Sentiment is white heat embossed on the bottom right of the panel.
  6. Adhered the panel on the card base.
  7. Embellished with Nuvo White Blizzard crystal drops.

Here are some closeups of the card.
