Simon Says ,,,,,,,Inspired by a Song/Film Title

Stamp-tember is almost halfway over !! For a chance to win fabulous crafty candy check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog every day ! ALSO For this whole month there are thousands of products in the Simon Says Stamp store at reduced prices ! NOW is the time to grab a basket and head off for a spot of retail therapy,, !! Don't miss out !!! :-)

Thanks for all your fabulous entries to our Multi-fold challenge last week :-) There are some really fascinating and innovative ways to create with card, some I had never seen before !

This week's challenge is

to use a SONG or FILM title as Inspiration

(So many options, so have fun!!!!)

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 :-)

I couldn’t decide whether to make a film title or a song title card ,, so I went for both :-) I had been wanting to make a card with the ‘Sleepless in Seattle’ film title for ages, ever since I saw this card on Stacy’s blog a while ago :-)




For my first card I used the very cute Happy Hopper Bunny Hop stamp, they are really having fun eh when they should obviously be tucked up and sleepin ! I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with colorbox blue chalk ink. The papers are from a First Edition Up Up and Away pack,,,, gorgeous !! I used a Martha Stewart border punch, little Tim Holtz Film Strip ribbon, some organza ribbon, a little twine, a Basic Grey Button and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish.



2nd up is my Lady in Red song title :-)

LOVE this song by Chris De Burgh, click HERE to hear it :-)



I recently bought this ‘When All’s Said and Done’ stamp by Stamps Happen , now girls ,,, how true is that sentiment !! you can be honest lol :-) Coloured with Copics ( by accident on the wrong card !! I LOVE Neenah Solar White, but stamped onto a card that looks similar but it doesn’t allow blending of the colours as well so this is slightly streaky ,,, don’t look too closely ! ) I inked the edges with Vintage Photo distress inks and added a few Hero Arts gems in the corner. The papers are from a Websters Pages Hollywood Vogue and WonderFALL pack and I added some simple bias tape from a Tim Holtz lavish ribbon pack, coloured black with a copic marker. I finished with one of my fave embellies, a flattened chrome cap and a Vintage Typewriter image, topped with an epoxy dot.

The 'lady in red' is fab. I love this style of stamp. Now you have me wondering if I can put a normal bottle top through my Big Shot machine ??
