Simon Says: Shimmer and Shine on the Monday Challenge










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

I can hardly believe that we are already into the 3rd week of Stamptember!! have you been following the awesome inspiration and events every day on the Simon Says Stamp Blog!! Its is brilliant and I am having a great time following all the goings on! 




This week the theme is

Shimmer and Shine
I think we all like a bit of sparkle ;-)

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

Please pop by to see what our lovely guest Carol and the DT have made!!

I used the fabulous  Stamp and Stencil Set (again) designed by the one and only Tim Holtz especially for Stamptember®

Did you order your set? if not you need to get a wiggle on, there are limited supplies and it won't be on the shelf for much longer!!


I have made a few cards using this Red/Kraft combo and I have to say I am a. bit addicted, I love these colours together!


I stamped and heat embossed the snowman with Stampendous 3D Sparkle Puff Embossing Powder, this gives a lovely textured sparkly snow effect. I then masked the snowman and stamped the trees.

For the background I used the stencil and a sponge to add White Pigment Ink and then I sprinkled with Judikins Sticky Stuff, heated gently and then sprinkled with my favourite  Prisma Glitter.



and I finished the inside.
