Simon Says ,,,, SHAKE IT !! :-)


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

Before moving on to the challenge we would like to thank everyone who joined in with the Design Team Call. We had almost 600 applicants ! We will be visiting you all in the next few days. THANK YOU :-)

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


So a shaker/confetti packet type element on your creation. There are several ways to create a shake you can make your own or buy ready made products that you can alter.
We are showcasing 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.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


While I had the supplies out I went ahead and made 4 variations :-)

First up is the shaker card, I love shakers,, so much fun !

I always add some Diamond Dust inside shakers, it is quite heavy and creates a lovely shaker sound :-)

I used some velum behind the clouds to soften the colour of the background card.

For this one I used an embossing folder to make the clouds dotty :-)

For this one I used the rainbow stamps and die, I think this would be nice for someone feeling 'Under the Weather' too :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one ;-)

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

Wow, Lols! You were on a roll. :) All of the cards you made are SO pretty! I especially love the third one with the rainbow.

Well, look at you, you little over achiever. ;) Seriously, though, these are really fantastic! The shaker is AWESOME and I am totally loving that yellow, white and grey one with the embossed clouds! Awesome!

WOweeeeeeeeee!! I am in LOVE with all your adorable cards! You've done such a great job.

Just wanted you to know I applied for a spot on the DT and boy would that be a dream come true for me. I had so MUCH fun working with you when I had the pleasure of being in the Designer Spotlight! I thank you for the opportunity and although I know there are TONS of applicants, I WISH everyone the best of luck.

I hope you'll remain on the team and continue to do great things for Heidi!

PS: I met Heidi this weekend, when she came to my LSS for some class with Sandy Allnock. It was so fun to finally meet her in person and we had a great weekend! She's a sweetie and you are lucky to work for such a great lady!!
