Simon Says ,,,,,,Spots and/or Stripes :-)

Simon Says Stamp

WOW!!! What a fabby turn out for last weeks NEW challenge!!!! Thanks to everyone for joining in :-)

This week we have another great challenge for you...

You can have just spots, just stripes or spots AND stripes, its totally up to you!!!!! PLEASE remember to LINK to this SIMON SAYS STAMP CHALLENGE in your blog post somewhere to qualify to win our prize!!!

The Design Team is showcasing MEMORY BOX products this week. Its not mandatory to join in but if you have them, why not pull them out & use them?!?! Simon Says has an amazing selection of Memory Box products - papers, dies, stamps.........WOW!!!

Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is invariably some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty !!

We have just started a MONTHLY CARD KIT , these are fabulous value for money !! Check them out HERE They are literally flying out of the doors so better be quick !!

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

For my card I used this very cute Baykahbella stamp from Stamping Bella .

I coloured the image with Copics and the edges inked with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. I used Memory Box Pixie papers and used a little bit of a striped design to paper piece her pinny. this is a gorgeous paper pack, lovely designs and quality :-) I layered her pouch and popped the spoons in there ,, I also layered the rolling pin and used Helmar Scrap Dots to fix, better for small items than pop dots. I used a check design paper as that has lots of stripes in it !!

For the spots I used a Memory Box Bubble Dots Die and made 2 strips which I used underneath the bias tape. I have bought several Memory Box dies and they cut beautifully, they have lots of gorgeous designs and I just LOVE them !! They are wafer thin so are easy to store too !!

The flowers are from a Hero Arts Blush Print pack and I added a green flower and Blush Dot for the centre. I also popped a die cut made using a Heart Swirl die underneath. to finish I added a Cupcake Charm and I used a Spellbinder Ribbon Tag for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking :-) Our Designer in the Spotlight, Debbie, and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them Smile
