Simon Says ,,,,,,,,, Anything Goes !!

Long Post Get Coffee :-)


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Summer Food and Drink Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing our very own Simon's Exclusive Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
Before moving on,  We have a Children's Holiday Challenge starting tomorrow and lasting for the whole month of August,,, it's that time of year to let your kids loose in your craft room again ,,,, hide your copics :-) 
There are so many fabulous stamps, dies, card kits and other products to choose from that I was ages trying to decide what to use so in the end I made 2  :-) 

First up is a stylish sort'a card using the Butterfly Tendrils die, isn't it pretty, and an 'Expressions For You' stamp and die set. :-)

I started by making a cloudy sky and delicate green background using a copic air brush. Then coloured the die cut with the same green marker, G21. Then I die cut the butterflies out of vellum, smooched with embossing ink and sprinkled with one of my fave products ,,,, Judikins Sticky Stuff ,, LOVE it , then sprinkled with glitter ,,, oohh yum ,,, so sparkly :-D

This card was made for the lovely Kate aka Downrightcrafty, she very kindly sent a copy of the magazine I was published in to my Mum :-) Thanks Kate :-)

see I told you it was a long post ,,, are you enjoying your coffee ?? :-)

Now it's Simon's turn to get a look in :-) We all LOVE Simon,, our store mascot ,, isn't he adorable :-)

What do you think of the wax seal ! I have had the paw print stamp for ages and thought it would be pawfect to use it for this,,,  :-)
