Simon Says: Make For The Border!

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

Thank you for joining us for the Let's Go Wild Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Make For The Border

We are showcasing Memory Box 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 Wildflower Landscape and Baby Kittens Craft Dies, I have to say, this Wildflower Landscape die is one of my new most fave dies, LOVE it :-)

I made a mask with scratch paper and created a 'shadow' with Simon's Fog Ink before colouring the die cut with copic markers. I couldn't resist popping in a little kitten playing amongst the flowers ;-)
 I simply finished the inside using the mask and ink, looks lovely I think ;-) 

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting 

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Robins On Branch

Hi all, I am here with a card for the ABC Christmas Challenge, did you know that there are only 129 days left to Christmas!! It's almost time to start mailing the cards!! ;-)

This time it's the lovely Wilma's turn to host and the theme for this fortnight is:

Q - Quick layout

I used a super cute new Robins on Branch from the Wild Rose Studio

The papers are from a Birds and Berries Paper Pack and I also used a Snow Frame which I smothered with some new Nuvo Glitter Ice White,

I tell you, it's like a blizzard in a bottle!! my new icy fave, it doesn't show up very well on photos but it looks like the whole frame is in a deep freeze! To be perfectly honest I bought it because I liked the bottle, and now need to get the rest of the colours, they will look so pretty on my desk, and I do LOVES glitter ;-)

I also used the same glitter on their little hat trims.

I finished the inside using a sheet of paper from the  Birds and Berries Paper Pack,  I really like how this has turned out ;-)

 The card is a little bit larger than my envelopes so I made a custom one using an Envelope Punch Board.

Thanks for looking, I hope you will all get into the Christmas spirit and join in! Pour yourself a thimbleful of sherry, pop Michael Bublé's carols on your iPod and crank up the volume, you will be surprised how quickly you will get into the mood,,,,,well, it works for me ;-)
