Simon Says ,,,,All White + Coloured Image

Hi all :-) Thanks for all your wonderful entries to our Christmas cards and creations challenge, hopefully we will all keep making them now we have started and avoid the last min rush ,,, and avoid having to buy ready made ones !!!

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge have a new theme of

All White + Coloured Image.

This week the DT have all used Magnolia stamps/products on their cards but you don’t HAVE to if you prefer not to :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too

Heidi and her staff have recently from the CHA and have ordered loads of THE hottest new products. Keep an eye on the All New Just In Pages there are sure to be lots of fab new goodies arriving right now !!


Apologies for the poor photo’s, I took loads but the details were impossible to see, easel cards are always diffy but white ones are a nightmare,especially for someone who is useless with camera’s like me !!

I made an easel card and used a lovely Newly Weds Bridal Couple stamp. I coloured the image with Copics and layered Tilda so she is standing slightly in front of Edwin. I added Frosted Lace stickles to her veil and hem of her dress and then swiped the edges with a delicate Colorbox pink chalk ink .

I made a frame using a Martha Stewart Pansy PATP set. I used some white pre embossed card from Doodlebug and then used a Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder to make another panel. The flowers were made using MFT Die-Namics Rolled Rose dies and I used a Magnolia Die Hickey Heart Swirl die and a Martha Stewart Scalloped Heart punch too. Added some Hero Arts Pearls and some wide textured fabric ribbon to finish. I used loads or Star Dust stickles and sewed all the edges on my machine to finish.

Our lovely GD Sarah and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please hop on over to the challenge blog to see them Smile
