Simon Says: PARTY!!










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

This week we are inviting you to dress up in your sparkly top and create something for a party!!

Party!

This challenge will run for 2 whole weeks, ending on the 1st January, so you have plenty of time to join in!

We would like to wish you a Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for a Happy New Year!


As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
This is Valerie's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight! It has been short but very sweet having you along with us! We would like to thank you for your fabulous creations, it has been such a pleasure :-)

I decided to make a Party Banner and I have to say I do love how it turned out, the photos really don't do it justice ;-) 



I used a Lawn Fawn Stitches Party Banners Die Set and cut the banners from Watercolor Paper and Soft Navy Cardstock. 

I then gave the banners a coating of Gesso and when it was dry I blended Faded Jeans and Cracked Pistachio Oxide Inks over the top. I sprinkled with 'A Bit Jaded' and Blackcurrant Infusions before spritzing with water. 

I used a Simon's Exclusive Funky Snowflake and blended the same oxide inks before smothering with Rock Candy Distress Glitter 

I used hand drawn letters and silver heat embossed them twice to give a good covering. I then used Silver Bullion Gilding Flakes to add extra shine to random areas 





Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Big Joy Snowflake

Hi all, are you ready for Christmas? No, me neither ;-)

I made a few more cards using my favorite Big Joy Snowflake Die that was part of the DieCember release. This time I used using pinks and gold, a bit of a variation on THESE cards I made last week. 


I blended Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Inks and then spritzed with water and when that was dry I splattered with gold 

I die cut cut the snowflakes from black card and then used a Tim Holtz Wood Slice stamp, inked with versa mark and then heat embossed with gold, I love that the snowflake isn't totally gold and looks a bit distressed don't you think? 


Thanks for looking!
