Simon Says ,,,, Sparkle and Shine :-)

Good Morning all !! We hope you are all fit, well and happy :-)

Thanks for all your gorgeous baby cards and creations last week ,,, all of them so very cute :-) If you would like to post a card to Heidi and Jason for the birth of their darling baby girl, Abigail, please email us for the address :-)

This week the theme is


The DT have been using products from Tattered Angels,, loads of glimmer mist this week :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! See the NEWEST stuff on the All New Just In Page For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too !!! :-)

For my card I decided to make a Joy Fold,,, I love these !! I used one of my new HM stamps ( sshh ) this one is called Basket of Friendship, I coloured the image with Copics and inked the edges with Stormy Sky distress ink. I made the papers using Slate and Chianti Glimmer Mists, the glimmer doesn’t show up on the piccy’s but they are gorjussss IRL Smile

I added some faux pearls using a Viva Magenta pen and a Prima Athena flower, sprayed with glimmer mist, and some Martha Stewart punched Frond leaves.

For the inside I used this cute HM Mudpie Holds Jelly Beans stamp. I coloured the jelly beans to look like berries ,, this can also work for coffee beans ,,,, very versatile stamp !! The sentiment is also a HM stamp Smile

So for your chance to win this fabulous $50 spree ,,, join in with our Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! :-)
