Simon Says ,,,,, TAG IT


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

This week the challenge is


 You can make a tag or add a tag to your creation
We are showcasing Ranger Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

I am sure you have all heard of the super talented Tim Holtz. He is famous for  tags and has a monthly challenge '12 tags of 2014' which you might like to join in with.  CLICK HERE to visit Tim Holtz's Blog for more details.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
This week we are welcoming our old teamie Joy Taylor into the Designer Spotlight. I am sure you will all remember Joy being on the team with us and we are thrilled to have her back with us this month :-)
Also we have some fabulous news !! The lovely ands super talented Teresa Kline, who was in the February Designer Spotlight, has agreed to join us on the Design Team. Welcome aboard Teresa :-)

I am joining in with Tim's 12 tags of 2014 and these are the tags for March.  The tags are designed to use different techniques and this month it is Smudge Stamping. I didn't have the stamps and products that Tim used on his tags, so I had to use what I had, but I love the result. 

Now all I need is to buy one of the fab folders to keep my tags in !!  Tim used a new gadget to spray ink from a Distress Marker, I don't have one of those so I used my Copic Air Brush with a Distress Marker and it worked !! YAY :-)

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog , if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out

ABC Christmas 'E' for Enclosed Challenge

Good Morning, hope you're all well and getting into the Christmas Spirit :-) Christmas will be here before you know it ! Only 294 days to go !! :-)

To help you along we have a fab new theme on the ABC Christmas Challenge which is hosted by the lovely Bettina.

so any boxes, bags, envelopes, gift cards etc ,,,, 

I made a card with a matching envelope :-)

 I made the envelope using a We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board ,,, if you haven't got one maybe you should think of adding it to your Christmas Wish List :-) I used a plain white paper, but it is great for using with Designer Papers too :-) 

I was a lucky winner on a SCS Challenge last year ( Hope You Can Cling To) and I won a lovely set of Spellbinders Bauble Dies, so I bought a co-ordinating stamp set and made this card with them ,,, I love how this turned out and will probably make a few more of this design :-)

I used stamp sets from Simon Says Stamp and Clearly Besotted to decorate the envelope. I will link everything below 

We are sponsored by Zlatoena's Design so some super cute images on offer ! :-)
