Simon Says ,,,, Anything Goes


Hi, all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week the challenge is ...


We are showcasing Cas-ual Fridays and Technique Tuesday Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them. 

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I love this stamp set ! the flower is gorgeous and it also has several lovely sentiments too.  I made the background using some Mowed Lawn Distress Ink, White Embossing Paste and a Tim Holtz stencil. I love that the distress ink seeps into the paste without you having to pre colour it, you don't waste any paste this way :-)

I masked the flowers and used the strip of small sentiments and a Fog Ink Pad to make the background on the tag,

I decorated the inside and used a sentiment from the stamp set. Now who shall I send this one to  ,, hmmm :-)

OOh, I just made another one this morning using the same stamps and watercoloured with Gelatos

hopefully the best is yet to come after I have had a few watercolouring lessons from Amy.. haha  :-)

You Are Pawesome

Good Morning ? How are you all on this sunny Tuesday ? Hope all is

it's time for a new theme over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge 

 Sketchy Free For All 

I used this weeks sketch,, I love all the circle elements and thought it would work perfectly with my new You Are Pawesome stamp, stencil and die set that arrived yesterday !! :-) I couldn't resisit the new Simon Says Stamp This Is the Life release and bought most of them ! 

It is my friend's 70th Birthday next month and as she was in charge of the local SPCA until very recently, and a huge animal lover, I thought these stamps would be perfect :-)

As you may know I have a dog and 7 cats so I used a Paper Smooches dog, which looks just like my Jessie and a few kitten die cuts for the inside. I was going to add 7 kitties but it looked a bit much ,, haha 

We are sponsored by the lovely peeps at Simon Says Stamp so a fabulous spending spree is on offer :-)

You can choose to use this sketch or you can choose from any of our previous ones. 

Thanks for looking :-)
