Simon Says Monday Challenge: Favourite Tool










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

This week we are challenging you to

Use Your Favorite Tool  

What is YOUR favorite crafting tool? Is it a Paper Distresser, a Fuse Tool, a Heat Tool, Die Cutting Machine? We would love to know what is your 'go to' tool!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Nicola is our fabulous Designer In The Spotlight! Please pop by to see her fabulous project and  leave her a lovely comment :-)

My favourite tool is my Big Shot Plus, it is my 'go to' tool for almost every project. With so many fabulous dies available and having stamps and coordinating die sets it makes creating projects so much easier than having to cut them out with scissors. 


I used a Tim Holtz Crazy Dogs and Framelits Die Set to make a masculine birthday card and a Mini Crazy Dogs and Cats Set to make a coordinating tag. Aren't they cute :-)

For the background I blended Pumice Stone and Cracked Pistachio over some watercolour paper and then used a Paper Artsy Eclectica Stencil and Mother Of Pearl Mousse to add some shimmer and texture. I then splattered with Marble Black, Lime Green and Tumbled Glass sprays


I also used a Tim Holtz Mixed Media 3 Die for the brick wall, using Pumice Stone and Fired Brick Distress Inks 



Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!


Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too





You have until Monday 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in

Challenges:




Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting
Luv Lols x x x

I'm loving the crazy dogs. The card has so much dimension. Is it the pearl mousse? Absolutely fabulous. You always kick up every card a notch or tow!

Love both this fun and beautiful card and tag! The colors and the texture on the background are fabulous. :)

Oh yes, the Big Shot is an amazing invention. We are so lucky to have it and it's impossible not to love it, right? Both the card and tag are sweet and very pretty! I love the delicate colors and the stenciled background with its funny texture. Love the puppies too of course! Hugs, Marzena

Andrea Ockey Parr said...

These are adorable! I love how you created the backgrounds and especially like how you showed us two totally different ways to make cute doggies. These two go perfectly together, yet each dog is totally unique. It's a nice mix, too, of street grunge and cuteness!

Emma Williams said...
