Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge : Make A Wish!


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

This week the challenge is


We usually  'Make A Wish' before blowing out the birthday candles, but you could create something with a wish in mind. I wish I was lying on a beach listening to the waves and reading a good book. What is YOUR wish? We will look forward to seeing what you make!

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


I made a card to send Birthday Wishes!

The Tim Holtz Birthday Blueprints Cling Stamp Set is one of my all time favourites and perfect for both feminine and masculine cards. I stamped the cupcake with Jet Black Stazon and coloured with Peacock FeathersSqueezed Lemonade and Antique Linen Distress Inks, I then masked the image and splattered with Dylusions Fresh Lime and Vibrant Turquoise inks.  The Peacock Feathers Ink coordinates beautifully with Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Card Stock so I used that for layering and then found a scrap of lime plaid to do down the edge. I finished with Washi Tape, Tim Holtz Paper String and a few dabs of Star Dust Stickles

My nephew and his wife had a baby boy a couple of days ago and I made a similar card using the Baby Blueprint Set for them. I used  Antique Linen Distress Ink to add shading to the onsie, but it is quite subtle and didn't photograph well. 

I finished the inside too, I really love how this turned out, super cute!! ;-)
