Thanks for all your fabulous entries to our BUTTONS Challenge! There were so many fabulous entries, and so many buttons :-)

Use this photo for INSPIRATION!!




Isn't it gorgeous? A field full of poppies, which is perfect for Remembrance Day in Commonwealth Countries and Veterans Day in the USA :-)

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!!

Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is ALWAYS some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty!!

For my card I followed the fab sketch on the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge.


I used this very cute House Mouse Special Delivery stamp. Coloured with copics and the edges inked with Stormy Sky DI, I then added loads of Star Dust stickles for the rain. The papers are Basic Grey from a Boxer pack and I made a poppy look alike flower :-) I coloured white card with Fired Brick DI and used a Spellbinders Spiral Blossom die, wound it around, fixed with blob of glue from a glue gun, added a blob of glossy accents in the middle and sprinkled with black glitter, it looks fab IRL but doesn’t show on the piccy. I used my lovely Heart Swirl die ( love this) and the sentiment was made using my fab new Hero Arts Stamp and Die Cut Floral set. I finished with some red organza ribbon, a BG button and some black American Tag twine.


Thanks for looking :-) America and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

I have a candy at the top of my blog if you would like to see it Smile
