Simon Says ,,,,, BLING IT ON !! TIME TO PARTY !! :-)


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

As it will be Christmas Day next Wednesday this challenge will continue for 2 whole weeks and will finish on New Years Day. SO there will be 2 $50 vouchers to give away !! Woo Hoo !! 

We Wish You All A Very Merry Christmas

and hope you all have a wonderful time with your family and friends :-)

Bling It On !!! ,,, time to PARTY !!

i.e anything sparkly goes, glitter, gems, stickles, glimmer sprays and paints etc :-)

We are showcasing Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products and we would love it if you would use them too, if you have them, but it isn't a requirement to join in :-)

So we now have 2 of these $50 vouchers to give to 2 lucky entrants to spend in the fabulous  Simon Says Stamp Store! WOO HOO !! :-)

I wanted to make Hubby an extra special card and he doesn't like much fuss so I thought this Heart Wreath Die and Falling Hearts Stencil from the Valentine 2014 new release would be perfect :-)  I think they work really well for a Christmas card ,, what do you think ? 

I think I will make another one and send it to my parents too,,,, I did send one already ,,, but I totally love this one  :-)  oops, I just noticed that a pearl has dropped off on the right side, am now gluing them all with glossy accents to make sure :-)

Do YOU have any embossing paste ?  If not ,,, WHY NOT :-) it is a fabulous product and I am now nearing the bottom of my first tub,, it is wonderful to use with stencils ,, you NEED it :-)

I love that the Heart Wreath die comes with extra hearts and leaves for you to add without the bother of having to die cut the whole wreath in different colours. As you can see I glittered all the hearts with Glitter Ritz glitter,, not overly sparkly but just enough bling and with the small white pearls ,,, perfect :-) I also sprayed the rose with shine for a little extra bling :-)

The sentiment was printed and cut on the Silhouette Cameo 

So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
