Simon Says: TAG IT


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

This week the challenge is


This is the time of year when we all need a few tags and there is nothing nicer than a parcel wrapped and finished with a handmade tag, although I have to confess I have used some store bought ones this year. I was posting parcels while I was in the UK and forgot to take some tags with me :-/

We are showcasing Tim Holtz 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

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

I thought this little robin would like to decorate his tree with candy canes, isn't he cute ;-)

I just love these Crazy Birds and after I saw THIS CARD on Barbara's Blog I had to get this tree die! I didn't go back to look at Barbara's card until I went now to get a link and realised that she had used the same bird on her card too! It just shows how things stay in your mind without even realising :-) 

I used Cracked Pistachio and Stormy Sky Distress Inks for the background and then smothered with Micro Glaze before embossing the snowfall background. The Glaze prevents the ink for seeping into the paste and changing its white colour. 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


If you use instagram add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too!

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
