Simon Says Stamp

WOW!!! What a fabby turn out for last weeks TAG challenge!!!! Lots of fabulous tags!

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

3 Different Papers :-)

The DT are showcasing CC Designs and The Greeting Farm images this week, you don;t have to use them to join in but if you have them 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 used an image from The Greeting Farm, this cutie is called Monday :-)

I coloured her with Copics and inked the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. The papers are Basic Grey from a Little Black Dress pack. I used a lovely button from a BG embellishment pack ( currently out of stock) and made 3 more buttons using a MFT Button Quartet die, I cut out several of these and glued them together with tacky glue to make a nice thick button, finishing them off with Hemptique twine.

Thanks for looking :-) Our lovely GD Linda and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

For my card I used this lovely image from Art Impressions, coloured with Copics and the edges inked with Tumbled Glass DI. I made the backgrounds using the emboss resist technique, stamping a Hero Arts Flourish which I thought resembled the swirls left by skates in the ice and a Penny Black Design Spotter stamp, which looks like snow ,, with Versamark, sprinkling with white embossing powder, heating and then swirling distress inks over the top. I then used a paper distresser on all the edges. I used oodles of Star Dust Stickles and Crystal glitter on the image and punched snowflakes. The sentiment is from hero Arts
