Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Anything But A Card 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies and make whatever you like, as long as it isn't a card, and add a link in the inlinkz at the bottom of the challenge post! 

You can join in 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen at random so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team are looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you asap!


Please pop by to see what our super talented guest, Christine, and the team have made! Fabulous inspiration! πŸ’—

I made a tag using my 'go to' Tim Holtz Framelits Tag Set and a Cocktails Blueprint Cling Stamp Set.  I intended to make a set of tags using all 4 stamps but ran out of time, so watch this space ;-)

Summer is definitely here and I like nothing more than sitting in the shade sipping a lovely ice cold cocktail! Would you care to join me? πŸΉπŸ˜ŽπŸ˜‹


For the background I used Distress Oxide Inks and  splattered with Dylusions Black Marble and Altenew Frosty Pink Shimmer Sprays. When the background was dry I heat embossed with Simon's exclusive Steel Navy Embossing Powder 

I used a MISTI tool to stamp the image again onto another piece of watercolor paper using archival grey ink. I coloured the image with Distress Inks and then, when dry, heat embossed in the same Steel Navy powder.  


I coloured some crinkle ribbon (I think this may have been discontinued! :-( does anyone know?)  with Worn Lipstick and Squeezed Lemonade Distress Inks 

I fussy cut out the glass, umbrella and sentient and embossed the reverse side with an embossing tool to round it off a little bit. 


artsy angle ;-)

I LOVE the Tim Holtz Snarky Small Talk Stickers, the very first one in the set was perfect for my tag!! haha

I laughed at the sentiment you used - once I had got past the longing to be sitting on a sun terrace with something cool and fruity in my hand! I adore these colours - transported to the tropics immediately!

BTW I can't link to your blog from SSSM

Hugs, Chris
