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.

I completely forgot about the extra requirements when I made this ,, but luckily there are stripes on their hats ,,, phew !! :-)

For my card I made a little circular card that can, if the recipient likes, be hung on the tree or somewhere !! I used a very cute Snoopy ‘Woodstock Follow Me’ stamp. coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Stormy Sky distress ink, then red chalk ink around the edges and smothered in stickles. I used a little Basic Grey paper from a Jovial pack and some red card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I added a bias tape bow, coloured with a copic marker and a star brad to finish.
