Simon Says Stamp Monday 'Felt That' Challenge


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week the challenge is


Using felt is very 'on trend' tight now and being the trendy bunch that we are we thought we should use some too!

We are showcasing products from the Simon Says Stamp 'Spring Plush' Release. The felt is fabulous quality and the stamps and dies are adorable, CLICK HERE to see the whole release.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


I made a 'Welcome Banner' for my garden. I have been thinking about making a banner for my garden for quite a while and when this theme came up I thought it was a perfect opportunity to get on with it! I think this will be a lovely welcome for guests attending our BBQ's during the summer, what do you think? 

I used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Party Banners Die to cut scraps of cream colored fabric, 2 for each banner, then stamped the rings using Aquamarine Archival Ink and a Tim Holtz Halftone and Rings Cling Stamp. I then stitched the edges with shocking pink thread and used a Crop A Dile to fix some old eyelets in the holes. 

I cut the letters out printer paper using a Silhouette Cameo and used them as a pattern for cutting the felt. I used a pack of Simon Says Stamp Pastels Felt and the bright pink sheet from a Lipstick Party Felt Pack

I used the same colors of felt and a Tattered Florals Die to make a decorative finish.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
