Simon Says ,,,,,, Snowflakes ! :-)

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


The design team have created some awesome projects for your inspiration, we are all featuring Glitter Ritz Products this week. You don't have to use them but if you have them ,, why not use them !! :-)

As always Heidi will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I decided to put my Silhouette Cameo to work this week and made a couple of  3D Baubles and a Christmas Bauble Box, the designs were all downloaded from the Silhouette Store.

I must admit the snowflake bauble was quite tricky to make and I needed a couple of attempts before it looked ‘right’ :-)
 Tip: I found that you need to use the Simon Says Stamp 120LB White Cardstock for stability, AND add the glitter after it is assembled !! :-)

Isn't this pretty !  This is gonna look soo COOL on my tree ! :-)
 With a smothering of the Glitter Ritz White Opaque Glitter this really does look like a real snowflake,,, as seen under a microscope ,, IRL !! :-) I added a snowflake charm and some silver twine to hang from the tree to finish.
 I did order THESE 'Tim's dangly bits' to hang from me baubles...... but they have only arrived this morning and I didn't have time to add them and re-take the piccy's :-)

For the 2nd bauble I used the emboss resist technique and wish I had photographed from a different side and not shown you my overlapped snowflakes ,, lol ,, but when it snows they do clump together don’t they ,, so this is quite authentic !! :-) 

I used  Coredinations card to cut the box and  stamped and embossed the snowflakes all over it, I used acetate on the inside of the aperture and added the white opaque glitter around the edges.

Thanks for looking :-) We have a new Designer in the Spotlight starting today and I would like to welcome the super talented Jenn to the team for December :-) Please pop over and give her a nice warm welcome :-)

Simon Says Stamp is now a Company Member of the Splicoast Stampers site !! :-) Please pop over to have a look HERE :-)  I have just subscribed to become a member of the Fan Club and the theme this month for Fan Club Members is 'Hang It All', so I will be linking these in there too :-)

Leuk dat je met onze uitdaging van de "schets en kerstballen" meedoet van Elke Kaart Een Feestje.

Helaas zien we niet de schets van onze uitdaging erin terug en dus komt dit kaartje niet in aanmerking voor onze top3
