Simon Says ,,,,, Use an Arrow :-)

Hi all :-) I hope you’re all having a fabulous week :-) I have been busy crafting !! ,,, more than usual, as I am determined to join in every day with the Love Fest Event over on the Splitcoast Stampers Website, I am already a bit late with Day 6 but it is almost done,, will be back later :)

This week the theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge is ,,,,,,,,

point the way !! :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
We are showcasing Basic Grey Products this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them  :-)

I used papers from a Basic Grey ‘Serenade’ pack ,,, one of my all time faves ,, I just love the colours and designs in this :-)


I made this card for my DS, Sean ,,, he never reads this blog so I am pretty safe :-) He had applied for a new job and he got it !! , he starts next month :-) YAY !! :-) He just needs to work his notice at his current job :-)

I used my Silhouette Cameo machine  to cut the big star out of the paper and some navy cardstock to create a frame and to give the paper more strength. I then cut a star frame out of the same card. I used a Simon Exclusives Falling Stars die to cut a panel to adhere beneath the star, the whole panel was then popped up on pop dots. The arrow was cut on the Silhouette too and it also printed the sentiment and did the line around the edge ,, I used a Silhouette Glitter pen and it is really sparkly IRL :-) The sentiment is from a Simon Exclusives ‘Shoot for the Stars’ set, this was also in the September Card Kit, and I added a few Studio Calico Wood Veneer Tiny Stars to finish :-)

This view shows that the whole front is popped up more clearly

Thanks for looking :-) Sem and the DT have made some amazing creations so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
