Simon Says Stamp 'Ray Of Sunshine' Monday Challenge


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

We hope to be back very soon to announce the new teamis? Thank you all for your patience 😉

This week the challenge is


After the long winter months we are looking forward to summer!
We are showcasing Dina Wakley Products this week, you don't have to use them, but if you have them 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


I used a Scribbly Birds Media Cling Stamp Set to make a sunshiny card ;-)

I am looking forward to the long sunshiny days of summer and used the colours of the beach for my card. I recently bought some Mixed Media Cardstock and wanted to use it to create the background and for the image and I love how the colours absorbed into the card so evenly. I coloured the bird with Cracked Pistachio,  Twisted Citron and Picked Raspberry. The background was inked with Distress Inks and I made a mask using a Scribbles and Splatt Die and used that to create the 'Sun' with Embossing Paste and a sprinkling of Mustard Seed Distress Glitter.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


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

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


Hope you all have a great week :-)

House Mouse 'Tails Entwined'

It's time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge!

This week it's the lovely Kate's turn to choose the theme 

of course you can always choose the Anything Goes option

I used this super cute Tails Entwined image, aren't they adorable ;-)

 I  coloured with copics and then carefully cut out the tails so that I could partially die cut the oval. For the background I used the larger oval die to cut out some Slate cardstock. I then stamped with a Drawn Hearts background stamp using versamark and then brushed some perfect pearls over the top. I also used a little of the powder to give the moon some shimmer. 

I am currently in the UK visiting family, so I will catch up with you all when I get home :-)

We are very happy to welcome back Heidi and Simon Says Stamp!   
Winner will receive a RANDOM ASSORTMENT of Premium Dye Ink Pads
