Simon Says Monday Challenge: Start Afresh

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

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! We hope you all had a wonderful time over the Christmas holidays and we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for 2017!!
I am sorry I am late but I had computer issues, which thankfully, was fixable but it did mean that my computer was put back to factory settings and I am having to add programs again, but, at least it is working Woo hoo!! I still need to work on the photo editing programme though ;-)
This week we are challenging you to


We would like you to use something fresh out of the packaging, i.e. something never used before.
We are showcasing the fabulous Carabelle Studio Products this week. If you have them we would love to see them used, but you don't have to use them to join in with the challenge
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
I used a new Le Roses De La Vie stamp set, they reminded me of Rennie Macintosh designs, and a fabulous Textures 2 Die Set which I have used before ;-)

I love these roses and I am sure I will be using them a lot in the future too. I white heat embossed and then coloured them with Lindy's Gang Mermaid Seashells Powders, they have a beautiful shimmer IRL, they are packed full of mica ;-)

Fr the background I used Tumbled Glass Ink and then used a Dot fade Stencil and a sentiment stamp to add more interest

Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #sssmchallenge so we can see your entries there too

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

What a totally great card, Lols! I am really impressed with how you pulled all the elements together so seamlessly and I thought your use of the Textures 2 die was particularly genius. Can't wait to see what that clever mind of yours churns out in 2017!
