Simon Says ,,,, Stamp-tember Blog Hop and Treasure Hunt !

For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER hop and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays.

To help celebrate we will be giving this HUGE BASKET OF CRAFTING GOODIES tothe winner of this hop!



PLUS 3 $25 VOUCHERS to the Simon Says Stamp Store ! The vouchers will be the hidden treasure on 3 DT blogs and you have to find them.




The Blog hop will finish on September 5th at 12 MN Ohio time (Sept 6th, 6 am CET, 5 am UK time) at on the Simon Says Stamp & Show Blog.

The theme for both challenges this week will be ANYTHING GOES. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilitiesare endless!

You will need to hop through each blog, find the little parcel of goodies and make a note on which designer’s blog you found them. You do not HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs but we would appreciate any comments you would like to leave. If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs

For more details please refer to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge or the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blogs .

If you arrived here from the super talented Terry's Blog then you are going in the right direction otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

This week the DT are showcasing Cuttlebug embossing folders. You don’t HAVE to use them but if you have them ,, why not get them out ! :-)

It is also Sarah's last week with us :-/ Thank you for being such a wonderful designer, it has been wonderful working with you this month :-) Good Luck xx


For my card I used this very cute Snoopy the Bus Driver stamp, I also bought a Unity Along for the Ride set that I thought would work well with this image :-)


I stamped the image then masked so that the traffic signs would be behind the bus, I coloured with Copics and layered the bus so that Snoopy and the Woodstocks would be inside. I inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink and added Glossy Accents to the traffic light and Star Dust stickes on the lights and along the floor

The papers are My Minds Eye from the Fly a Kite pack. I used a Martha Stewart Arch lattice border punch and a My Favorite Things Die-namics Sunshine die.

I used a Cuttlebug Distressed Stripes folder on the red paper, a Spots and Dots folder on the red strip across the middle and a Divine Swirl folder on the sun.

I added some Robins Nest Dew Drops, Star Dust stickes on the sun a couple of fun Googly Eyes



From here you need to go to the super talented Tracy Evans blog for more inspiration, don;t forget to look for the treasure !! :-) I would appreciate a comment if you would like to leave one


The last stop on the hop is the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog. You will need to leave a comment there with the names of the 3 blogs with treasure chest pictures. The comments will be moderated so you will not be able to see the answers.

Happy Hopping !! :-)
