Simon Says: Die Crazy


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the STAMPtember® Stamp It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


you must use at least one die cut on your creation. If you don't have any dies then you can used punched shapes.
We are showcasing W PLUS 9 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 used this super cute Bubble Talk Stamp and Die Set and made a shaker card :-)

Isn't this little elephant adorable blowing bubbles :-) I used a Lawn Fawn Grassy Border Die to create a mask for the background in the shaker, then used a Cloud Die Cut and a Copic Air Brush to make the cloudy sky.

For the big bubble I stamped and embossed the 'Hello' with White Powder and then coloured with Spun Sugar and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks. I then clear embossed over the whole bubble to give it a lovely glossy finish.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

Don't forget that there are lots of activities, Blog Hops, New Product Releases and Lots of Give-Aways over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog for the whole month of STAMPtember®

It's Lols here to host the challenge and the theme is 


shhhh no sentiments or text

I used a new Beautiful Bauble from the Wild Rose Studio

I die cut the Beautiful Bauble and then used White Pigment Ink and Sticky Stuff Embossing powder, gently heated until it melted and then sprinkled with Prisma Glitter. I die cut another one out of Silver Metallic Card and used that for the centre and 'chain'. I heat embossed these with Sparkle Embossing Powder. I then cut a piece of Vellum to put behind the bauble, covering up the fancy swirls. 

The papers are from a new Winter Bauble 6x6 Paper Pack

We are sponsored by the lovely people at Freckled Fawn and they will be giving away a fabulous $15 Gift Card.
