Simon Says ,,,,,, Anything Goes !! :-)


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Halloween Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing OUR VERY OWN SIMON'S EXCLUSIVE Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would LOVE to see them used :-)  After all, we are rather partial to our Simon Exclusives.  Just sayin'  *wink*  *wink*

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!  Woot!  Woot!  
I got a bit carried away this week and made 2 cards with co-ordinating envelopes ! :-)

First up is a card using  a Layered Tree Craft Die  and Falling Snow Stencil and for the envelope I used a Holiday Delivery stamp and die set

To make the snowflakes blue I first inked through the mask with Hero Arts Cornflower Blue and then smooched some embossing paste over the top, looks good eh ! :-) 

The bucket is from a beach accessories set in the Silhouette Studio and cut on the Cameo :-)
I trimmed 1.5 cm from the front edge and adhered a strip of Washi Tape down the inside edge to add a bit of interest :-)

next up is this cute card usingHappy MeowdayBelieve Stencil and Furry Christmas stamp sets and again I used the Holiday Delivery stamp and die set, for the envelope

I cut a piece of white card and secured the stencil over the top, then masked the 'believe' part. I inked through the mask with Hero Arts Red Royal ink, then removed the mask and masked the stripes. I then inked with pumice stone DI and then smooshed some perfect pearls over the top to give a silvery look. I used the antlers from the Furry Christmas set,,,  I think this card is particularly cute don't you ? :-)
