Simon Says 'Get In Shape'










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

This week we are challenging you to
Get In Shape
no, we don't mean join the gym ;-)

This week we would like you to create something shapely! You could create something 3D, a box or folder for example, or you could create a card with 3D elements or a fitness theme. Whatever you decide to make, we will be looking forward to seeing it!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
Our super talented and very lovely Guest Cathie aka Beulah Bee has decorated a gorgeous and very special box, please pop over to see it on her blog! 

I made a little winter holiday cabin to add to my Christmas village. I started by die cutting the basic Village Dwelling Die using Simon's Exclusive #120 white yardstick, this is perfect for creating a solid base from which to start.



I then used the wood and text design papers from a Tidings Pack to paper piece the walls and roof. 

I used a Village Winter die to add on the snow and icicles and used red card for the chimney and windows oct. 


I added some little trees, sprayed with a green copic marker and used Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to create the garlands. 


I made a 5x5 inch base using a Score Pal and added White Texture Paste and a palette knife to apply 'snow' 


I love making these little houses and will have a whole village ready by December, hopefully ;-)




Thanks for looking!
