Queen Of Snark!


I have been crowned the Queen Of Snark with THIS CARD, coincidentally it also featured wine!!  and was invited back to be their guest on the Sisterhood Of Snarky Stampers Challenge.

For the next fortnight the theme is

'C' is for COLOURING 

Don't you just love this graphic!! :-D 



I made this card using a lovely Simon Says Stamp 'Time For Wine' Stamp and Coordinating Die Set 

I must admit I am quite partial to a glass or 2 of wine, preferably red, but I will drink any colour at a push ;-) 


This challenge was just up my street! When I was a kid my favorite Christmas present was always the colouring book and new pencils or paint palette and I used to get so angry with myself if I went over the lines, but the worst was if my brother coloured one of my pictures in, that was a declaration of war ;-) 

I coloured with Copic Markers and I have to admit, when I was colouring the grapes I had wished that I had only stamped one bunch, it was definitely a labour of love!! ;-) 

I wanted the sentiment to look like a wood panel that you would having on the wall so layered several pieces of woodgrain card stock and heat embossed the sentiment using VersaFine Clair Chianti Ink (GORGEOUS!!!)


and I finished the inside using an Art Impressions 'Classy and Fabulous' stamp.



I hope you will all join in with this fun challenge!! I am sure you all know some colourful character that you can make a snarky creation for ;-)

It's time for our annual Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers! CLICK HERE or on the logo below for more info

Simon Says: Fun In The Sun!





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


This week the challenge is 

Fun In The Sun 

We are showcasing some adorable  Mama Elephant Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would sure love to see them used!

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!


Please pop by to see what the lovely Lee Ann and the DT have made and please leave comments XX ;-)

I made a shaker card using a used Up And Away Stamp and Coordinating Die Set and Pizazz Pieces Creative Cuts Die Set 



I coloured the little critters and balloons with Copic Markers and shaped them using an embossing tool to round them off a little bit, makes them look 'real' I then heat embossed the sentiment onto the front panel ;-) 

For the background I used a Visible Image 'Strobes' Stencil to create a sunshine effect with Squeezed Lemonade and Spiced Marmalade Distress Oxide Inks. I then added Simon's Exclusive Sunshine Sequin Mix , don't they look pretty! 

It is ages since I added eyelets to anything but thought these little blue stars were lovely! I think they should make a come back!


I used a Mama Elephant Incoming Mail Set to decorate the envelope
