Simon Says Stamp

WOW!!! What a fabby turn out for last weeks Love Is In The Air challenge!!!! Lots of lurve'ly creations for us to pop by and admire :-)

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


so make a tag, or add a tag to a card/creation

As you all know Tim Holtz is famous for his tags, so all the DT have used Tim Holtz products on their creations this week in his honour :-)
You don't have to use them, but if you have them we would love to see them used on YOUR creations :-)

We have recently started a MONTHLY CARD KIT , these are fabulous value for money !! Check them out HERE

Designed by oober talented Kristina Werner, this kit includes a wide variety of supplies--enough to keep you creating for hours! You'll also receive ideas via email newsletter with 6 project ideas using the items in the kit.

Isn't this GORGEOUS !!!

If you would like to order one you had better be quick, these are flying off the shelves, I wanted to give all our lovely followers a heads up !! :-)

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

I really enjoyed making this tag, it might not be much to look at but it was fun making it ,, I got more ink on me than on the tag and my hands were a horrid shade of green for hours ( I need to buy a scrubbie) bit it was worth it :-)

I started with a tag ,,,and coloured with various distress stains. when it was completely dry I used a Dyan Reavey mask and sponged with Stormy Sky Distress ink, then brushed over with Blue Smoke Perfect Pearls. I used a strip of Tissue Tape down the left side edge and then stamped the butterflies from an Attic Treasures set. I then stamped them again onto watercolour paper and coloured them with the brand new Distress markers. These were a gift from Ranger when I attended a Tim Holtz class at the CHA , I have 6 of them ,, now need to buy the rest of them ,,, 31 to go ,,,, !!! I used an Elegant Flourishes die to cut out some grungepaper and I coloured this with Vintage Photo DI then embossed with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing Powder. I stamped the Paris, London stamp in the top R corner and added a Fleur de Lys charm, The ticket was made using a Ticket Strip Die and an Odds and Ends stamp, I used some bias tape, coloured with stains and then I finished with oodles of Rock Candy stickles on the butterflies.

Thanks for looking :-) Our fabulous Designer in the Spotlight, Linda, has made a gorgeous tag,, as have all the DT, so pop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them !

Now its your turn to get inky ,,,, Happy Crafting !! Smile
