Simon Says ,,,,Multifold Cards/Creations

Thanks for all your fabulous entries to our Stamp-tember Hop and Treasure Hunt. We will be back soon with a winners list :-)

This week's challenge is,,,,

so anything with more than one fold ,,, easy :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too :-)

We have a fabulous Designer joining us for 4 weeks in the September Spotlight !! :-)

Please welcome the super talented Alberto !!
Antonio is 16 years old and entered our Children's Challenge recently.His work is amazing and he is a designer for the Magnolia Stamps Store ! If you haven't visited his Lo Shakerato Alberto blog before then you are in for a treat !

This week the DT have all used My Minds Eye or Jillibean Soup papers on their creations. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them why not dig them out and use them,, stop just admiring and stroking them !!! :-)

For my card I decided to stick with a simple easel card. The image is from Stamps Happen, this one is called Louis and Rosie. I coloured with Copics and doodled some faux stitching around the edges. The papers are My Minds Eye from the Hattie paper pack. I love MME papers and the colours in this one are particularly lovely ,,, blues, greens, teal ,, gorgeous ! I made a tag for the sentiment, the image and text is from a Crafty Secrets Party Catz set. I was going to use my cricut to cut out the tag but horror of horrors it has stopped working !! Sad smile The ribbon is from Martha Stewart and I used a Out Of Print Basic Grey brad in the centre. I finished with a few Robins Nest Dew Drops, coloured with a blue copic and added some glossy accents to the goldfish bowl.

Tag ,,,,,,

Thanks for looking, Antonio and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them Smile
