Simon Says,,,, Anything Goes :-)

This week we have another great challenge for you......your fave !! :-)


we are all using twine on our cards this week :-) You don't have to to join in but if you have some then we would love to see it used on your creations :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the FABULOUS Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!!!

Please pop around to visit Dora and the DT to see how we made them and of course we all LOVE to recieve comments so please leave some ,,, :-)

I used this very cute Big Eyes stamp from Hero Arts, stamped twice coloured with copics and the body and claws cut out and popped up with pop dots so that the branch and tail are in the background :-) I then used glossy accents on his beak. I used an ivory coloured basic card and made the yellow card by colouring white card with a Copic YR23 marker. The papers are from a Kaiser Craft Check In pack

I made the stars using various colours and makes of twine, Hemptique, Hero Arts and American Tag. I started with a piece of card which I had covered with Sookwang tape, I then just layed down strips of twine to make a design, I then coated with some Multi Medium, just to be on the safe side, these strips of twine are definitely not going to fall off :-) When dry I cut the stars using a Sizzix Stars Die I used some Hero Hues Earth ribbon and wrapped more twine around before sticking a star on top and finishing with a Basic Grey button.

I wrote the sentiment on my Silhouette Cameo machine ( LOVE LOVE LOVE it ) and popped a small star and tiny button on there too.

I am keeping up my resolution to finish the insides :-)

I used a Hero Arts Tiny Owl stamp and the sentiment is from Stampendous.
