Simon Says ,,,,,, FAVOURITE TOOL :-)

Simon Says Stamp

Before we get to the challenge, we'd like to wish you all a VERY Happy Easter this weekend!!! Enjoy the time with your family & friends and eat lots of chocolate !!!

This week Simon Says ,,,,,,,


the DT work really hard to try to comment on all entries but we are having a few problems with blogger at the moment, I am sure you are all aware of it, so please be assured that every entry will be included in the prize draw :-) Good Luck to ALL :-)

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 would like to welcome in the April Designer Spotlight ,,, MANDY
PLEASE be sure to head to her blog & send her some love, her creations are FABBBBBBBBB!!!!!!! :-)

As you may know I was a lucky winner at the Silhouette booth at the CHA, I won a Rhinestone Starter Kit ,,,, so then I HAD to get a Silhouette Cameo Machine to be able to use it !! :-) Thanks to Silhouette America and to the lovely Heidi for helping me get one :-)

I have to say ,, I absolutely LOVE this machine ,, my new bestest toy !! I have rearranged all my craft room to fit it on my desk next to my laptop so even when I am not actually using it I can still gaze at it ,,, Open-mouthed smile

As it will be Easter this weekend I decided to have a go at making these very cute bunnies after seeing them on my HM&F teamie, Sue’s blog. They were so easy to make and I think they are FAB :-)

The machine cut everything out and I just added some chalk to the cheeks, for the girl I added some ribbon, googly eyes and hemptique twine . For the boy I added some Hero Arts black pesrls for his eyes and used some twine too. The spotty papers on the ears is from Kaiser Crafts.

I used Galaxy Markers to colour his nose and paws

I used a copic marker ( RV32) to colour her nose and paws

I popped some chocolates inside and closed with some DSST I did try magnet disks but they weren’t powerful enough ,,, :-)

I also made this T-shirt using the rhinestone kit !! :-) FAB eh !

I bought a plain T shirt from NEXT and glamed it up !! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) Mandy and the DT have made some gorgeous creations for you so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
