Simon Says: Whatever The Weather










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

This week we are challenging you to create something using the weather as your inspiration.

Whatever The Weather  

We are showcasing Tim Holtz Products this week. you don't have to use them but if you have them we would love to see them used. I am sure, most, if not all of us have at least one of Tim's Products ;-) 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This week we are welcoming the lovely and super talented Bonnie aka My Stuff My Life into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited Bonnie's blog then you are in for a real treat!! Please pop over to say 'Hi'

I was inspired by all the snow engulfing the UK at the moment and made a Christmas card using an array of Tim Holtz Products 


I started by smooshing Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide Inks onto a Ranger Non Stick Craft Mat and then swooshing some Watercolor Paper through it. I ironed it dry and then used a a Flurry Background Stamp and heat embossed using White Pigment Ink and Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder. I used a Merry Christmas Die and cut out Silver Glitter Paper, Schoolhouse Red and Black 
and a Santa with his reindeers from a Village Christmastime Die Set.




for the inside I used a Paper Artsy Let It Snow Stamp Set 





Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
