Simon Says ,,,,, Sporty and/or Patriotic :-)

This week we have another great challenge for you !!
With the 4th of July celebrations around the corner and the Olympics just about to start too we thought we would combine the 2 this week and give you a choice :-)


We are showcasing Cuttlebug Products on our cards this week and if you have them we would love to see them used but you don't have to use them to join in :-)

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

I decided to go the ‘Sporty’ route and chose Weightlifting :-) I used this super cute Muscle Mouse image ,,, LOVE ‘im :-) You may need your shades on to scroll down ,,, this is BRIGHT!! :-)

I coloured with Copics and sparkled with Star Dust Stickles. The green spotty paper is from an Amy Tangerine Sketchbook pack and I made a panel using a Cuttlebug Spots and Dots folder. I coloured the raised design with my new Pan Pastels ,, LOVE them !! I chose the ‘Pastel’s’set for my first try, yummy colours and I sprayed with Fixative to seal. All the yellow mounting cards were plain white Neenah, coloured with Squeezed Lemonade Distress ink from the Spring Seanonals set, such a lovely colour ! :-)

I used a couple of the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusives Dies, I used ‘Strong’ from the Brilliant and Strong dies and a Star Border. I loved the tiny star confetti and coloured a few to pop back into the holes and added a few on the image too :-) I also used a MFT Stacking stars die and some Hemptique twine to finish :-)

I finished the inside and used a new Simon Says Stamp sentiment from a You Can Do Anything set, this was also in the May Card Kit.

Thanks for looking :-) It is Liz Marsden’s last week in the spotlight and I would like to thank her for her wonderful creations over the past month :-) Liz and the DT have made some fabulous creations for you this week so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
