For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too :-)

This week the DT have all used My Favorite Things Stamps and/or Die-namics Dies on their creations. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them why not dig them out and use them :-)


I am currently taking part in the Jennifer McGuire Inspiration Showcase classes and I have been inspired to NOT use designer paper on my card this week but to make my own Smile I had alot of fun with my inks, embossing folders, powders and heat gun :-)





For my card I used my very cute My Favorite ThingsTime for the Bubbly’ stamp set. I coloured the image with Copics and tried to make the wallpaper look a bit textured by pouncing the tip of the copic over it. I added Star Dust Stickles on the bubbles and Glossy Accents on the wine glass.

The paper at the top was made using some glossy card, I stamped the spots using a Penny Black Design Spotter cling stamp and Versamark ink. I then sprinkled with white EP and heat set. I then swirled some Dusty Concord distress ink over the top.

For the bottom half I inked my Spots and Dots folder with Versamagic Aquatic Splash and run some plain white card through the big shot.

I added some Tim Holtz ribbon, it looks like a garter and added some satin ribbon, a triple bow and a MFT rolled rose ( LOVE this die ! ) and popped a little pearl in the middle. I made the sentiment into a wall hanging and hung it on a brad with some silver chain.





Alberto and the DT have made some gorgeous creations for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them Smile
