The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously 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, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest, Lee Ann, and the DT have made :-)

I was really inspired by the Gay Pride Parades that are currently going on in many cities around the world. We need to stand shoulder to shoulder with the gay (LGBTQ) community to show our love and support :-) 

I used a gorgeous Birch Press Stitched Heart Set. I love that the stitches are on the outside edge of the die, perfect for shakers!!!  so of course I just HAD to make another shaker to share today! :-) 



As you know Gay Pride Flag incorporates rainbow colours so the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Paper Pack and Studio Katia Rainbow Sequin Mix were an obvious choice ;-) 


and I finished the inside 


I was inspired to make this card by this pic of my beautiful and fun daughter, Amy, taken at Gay Pride in London last weekend ;-)





So now it's YOUR turn to add a die cut or a punch to your creation and join in!

Simon Says: Add A Little Sparkle





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

This week the theme is

Add A Little Sparkle 

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously 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, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post!

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
Please pop by to see what our lovely guest Karolina and the DT have made! Super sparkly creations! :-)

I made a card using a Darkroom Door  Tropical Birds Cling Stamp Set.



For the flamingo and water I used Zig Brush Markers and for the background I simply spritzed with Tumbled Glass Spray I randomly stamped some script and then used a Dot Fade Stencil and White Embossing paste to add texture. While the paste was still wet I sprinkled Prisma Glitter generously all over the top, super sparkly in real life! 

I finished by machine stitching around the edges





and I finished the inside using a super cute Simon's Exclusive Flamingo Die :-)




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your sparkly supplies and join in!
