Simon Says: Chill Out On The Monday Challenge










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

This week we are challenging you to

Chill Out

The weather is quite chilly at the Simon HQ, but you can also choose to chill out at the beach with if you prefer warmer climes! There are lots of options for this challenge, we can't wait to see what you create!
Please pop by to see what our fabulous GD, Autumn, and the DT made and leave some comments, we all appreciate them ;-) 

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

I decided to make a 'Chilled Out' Christmas card, another one ticked off the 2017 Christmas card 'To Do' list! I hope to be more 'chilled out' and organised for next Christmas ;-) 


I used a super cute Tim Holtz Blueprint Snowman Stamp along with a Woodland Tree Die and a fabulous new Simon's Exclusive Holiday Background Stamp to create a winter wonderland :-)

I inked the background with Stormy Sky and Tumbled Glass Inks and then when it was completely dry I heat embossed the background text. for the snow drifts I tore the paper and then used Rock Candy Glitter to make the icy edging ;-)



Thanks for looking!

 I hope you will all join in with your mixed media/arty style creations!! :-) 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

This is a fantastic and festive scene! I especially love how you did the background with the beautiful shades of blue and I also liked how you seamlessly combined die shapes and stamps to create the perfect scene. The pops of color on the showman's hat are a lovely touch, too!

This is such an awesome card, and I don't know if you ever play along in challenges, but this one would be a perfect fit (and much appreciated) at Paper Sweeties. We'd love to have you play along with us if you are able. I hope you can join us with this sweet snowman card.
