Simon Says: Ombre

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

Thank you for joining us for the  Stamp-It Challenge and Hop and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week we are challenging you to


Definition: Ombre is a French word for a color with a shaded tone or varying tones. An example of ombre is a color that fades from dark gray to light gray.

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

I used my favorite colours of blue and aqua to make an icy Christmas tag.

Christmas is only 87 days away and this year I intend to have all of my tags made ahead of time, well that is the plan, haha ;-)
 I used  Stormy SkyChipped SapphireBroken China and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink Pads to create an ombre effect background and love how it turned out. I might just save this tag and use it for a gift to myself!

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

House Mouse and Friends Fall/Halloween Challenge

Hi all :-) I am back from a fabulous trip to Krakow in Poland and I will be catching up with you all asap :-)

It's time for a a neew theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge, this week Sue K has chosen the theme


Although we don't really celebrate Halloween here I will be going over to Simon Says Stamp next week to help them get ready for the CREATE event so I thought I would make a treat bag to give to someone special, it is filled with M&M's, well, there are a few missing ;-)

I used an older wooden stamp called 'Interview With A Vampire', it isn't available at the moment but hopefully it will be released again in a cling version soon.

I used a Tim Holtz Shatter Stencil and some White Pigment Ink to create the 'spiders web' background. The sentiment is from a new 'Not So Spooky' stamp set and I embossed with some 3D Sparkle Puff Powder, AWESOME
