Simon Says: Use Patterned Paper




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

Use Patterned Paper 

You might like to use paper from a pack but you can also choose to make your own patterned backgrounds. Whatever you choose to use we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

This week we are showcasing Doodlebug Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them 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


Please pop by to see what our lovely guest Vera and the DT created! So pretty :-)

I love the papers in the  Doodlebug  Hello Sunshine Paper Pack, the designs and colours are so pretty and are perfect with the Bubblegum Twine and  glittery Birthday Girl Sprinkles! :-)


I used a super cute elephant from a  Simon Says Stamp Wild Cuddly Critters Stamp Set, isn't she adorable! I coloured with copic markers and made an extra head so that I could give her a 3D look. 

I used a Simon Says Stamp Natural Tag and covered this with the patterned papers

And this is the inside. I like to add the extra left over bits of paper for the insides, it doesn't take that much longer to do and I think it gives the card an extra special look ;-)


Due to the recent 300% price hike to transfer from Inlinkz to Link Deli I have stopped using that service. It is such a shame that a service we have used for years can suddenly increase their prices so dramatically and if you don't pay all of your links for years disappear. Grossly unfair in my opinion. But hey ho' time to bite the bullet and leave.

Here is a link list of the products I used. I do receive a commission on these affiliate links but rather than give the proceeds to inlinkz I will be donating the full amount to the Gozo SPCA. Every little helps ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn to stop stroking your pretty papers and actually cut into them! ;-) 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.





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

such an adorable and cheerful card-love these sunny bright colors! I have no clue what you're talking about in reference to linking , inklitz, linkdeli, etc. but how nice to donate your proceeds to such a wonderful cause.
Now, off to play with my stash of papers:)
