Simon Says ,,,,,, Follow Dawny’s Sketch :-)

Simon Says Stamp

Thank you so much to everyone who joined in with our challenge of "April Showers bring May Flowers" last week. It was fantastic to see so many of you joining us in our challenge.

This week our lovely and uber talented teamie, Dawny P, has made us one of her lovely sketches for us to follow :-)

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 Blogtoo

This week the Design Team are showcasing American Crafts and/or Martha Stewart products. If you have either of these two products, we would love to see them in your projects this week but if not, please come and join us anyway !!

For my card I used this very cute Mimi image from Penny Black, this is called Sweet Thing, I stamped the image twice with Memento black ink onto Neenah cardstock, I then coloured with Copics and cut out the extra cupcake and stuck it it on with Pop Dots. The cupcake paper is from American Crafts and is called Cherry Chips. Instead of popping a square element underneath the image I cut out a cupcake on my Silhouette Cameo, coloured with copics and popped it in place. I used some Glossy Accents on the cherries, I used lots of star dust stickles and I stitched all the edges. I used a Martha Stewart Lace Heart border punch and a Monarch butterfly punch too, I finished with some satin ribbon and a sentiment from a Lawn Fawn set.

Thanks for looking :-) Our fabulous GD Mandy 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 very cute Pickle with Present image, coloured with copics and the edges inked with stormy sky DI. The navy starry paper is from Craft Creations and I embossed a panel using a star folder, this was also inked slightly with the ink. All the silvery card for layering was made by inking plain white card with Pumice Stone DI and then perfect pearls brushed over the top, really shimmery and silvery IRL, I used some silver mesh ribbon from The Ribbon Girl, the star was made using a Memory Box die and I added some navy ribbon and a charm from America and some metallic dew drops to finish :-)
