Simon Says ,,,,, Anything Goes

Simon Says Stamp

This week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge we have a fab theme of


The DT are showcasing Echo Park papers this week, you don't have to use them but if you have some we would love to see them :-)

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 decided to make a Joy Fold card and used this gorgeous new Big Eyes Owl stamp from Hero Arts.

I stamped with Memento Ink onto Neenah card 3 times, I cut out the image and used Antique Linen and Vintage Photo Distress inks to colour. I then cut out the eyes twice , coloured the outer rim with the vintage photo and the inner eye with the Antique linen. I also cut out his beak and coloured it with an orange copic marker.

The papers are Echo Park from a Victoria Gardens pack, love this pack ,, all are lovely designs ! I inked all the edges and used Hero Arts Kraft paper and some plain brown card for layering. I made the branches using a Memory Box Twigs and Berries die and added a few Hero Arts Pearls and a large Graphic 45 chipboard button for the closure. I added some bias tape, coloured with an orange copic and some brown organza ribbon to finish.

On the inside I used this very cute Tiny Owl and Scroll Tree, both by Hero Arts , the words were stamped using a Lawn Fawn alphabet set.

I am leaving later today and will be meeting up with Heidi, Steph and lots more people who are behind the scenes at Simon Says Stamp ,,, We’re all going to the CHA looking for new products ,,,, SOOOO EXCITED !! Smile

‘B’ FOR BEARS AND BUNTING ,,,, ( plus Christmas of course)

I used this very cute Gruffie Bear stamp, this is called Box of Ornaments, I coloured with Copics and inked the edges with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. The papers are Memory Box from the ‘Yuletide’ pack. I used a Spellbinders Banner to make the bunting and added some gems to bling it up a bit :-) I used some twine, a charm and I used the little snowflakes left over from the EK Success Snowflake border punch, coloured with silver pigment ink.
