Simon Says Recycle/Upcycle Style


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

We are welcoming 4 new Design Team members this week, KathZoeyCathie, and Macarena! Please give them a nice warm welcome and pop by their blogs to say 'Hi'

This week the challenge is,


With the throw away society that we live in we thought we should take a look through our 'rubbish' and use something that we would normally put in the bin!

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


I like to make marmalade so throughout the year I collect jars of all shapes and sizes. I always think it's a shame to throw them in the recycle bin and prefer to re-use them whenever possible. So with that in mind I made one into a romantic candle holder.

I started by tearing a strip of  tissue wrap and inked the edges with gathered twigs distress ink before adhering to the jar with multi medium matte glue.

 I then inked a die cut heart parade with tarnished brass distress paint and adhered this over the top.

 I wrapped some twine around the rim and added a brass tinted rose and a few gold sequins for extra glamour. Perfect for a romantic dinner setting don't you think!

and here it is all lit up :-)

Stampendous 'Puddle Fun'

Hi all :-) It's time for a new theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge and this time it's the lovely Lori's turn to choose the theme 


I used this lovely Puddle Fun Cling Stamp to create a rainy day card.

I love yellow and grey together, perfect for a day of sunshine and showers don't ya think ;-)

I kept the whole design pretty simple. I paper pieced the umbrella with a scrap of yellow polka dot paper and added a strip of foiled paper (which I foiled using a fabulous Minc Machine) down the edge.
