Simon Says Wednesday Challenge: New Something

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

Happy New Year! We hope you had a wonderful Christmas and hope that Santa left you some crafty goodness in your stockings!
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is

New Something

New Crafty Stash, New Baby, New Job, New Life, Wedding etc, we will be looking forward to seeing whats new! 
The Design Team all used new  Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge 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 Store

I used a new  Simon Says Stamp January'Snow Much Thanks' Card Kit  and a Winter Snow Die Set and made a couple of cards!

I love everything about this kit, my fave colours are blue/aqua so this kit is perfect! 

I also love shakers, so I combined the 2 and made this CAS shaker card, I scored the card so that it had a 3mm space for the shaker to fit on the inside. 

For my next one I tore a strip of the vellum and then stamped and heat embossed the snowflakes using 3D sparkle puff.

These are the cards I have made so far and there is still so much more product to use in the box!!

and this is the kit!

There are a few left so if you want one you had better be very quick! 

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.

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

Hope you all have a great week :-)
Happy Crafting

ABC Christmas: 'A and B' Challenge

Happy New Year and welcome to the first theme of the year on the ABC Christmas Challenge! We are doing things a little bit differently this year, each month the challenge will have 2 themes and you can choose which you would like to do, or do both! 

Each challenge will also last for the whole month so you will have longer to join in ;-)

To get the year started the themes for January are 

A - Anything Christmas

B – Things beginning with B

I made a card using the Simon Says Stamp January Card Kit 

'B' for Bow and  Blue 

I LOVE this kit, it had my name written all over it! the blues and sparkle, perfect for me :-) 
I used a polka dot embossing folder to give the vellum some texture, I love how it turns the dots an opaque white, and  then stitched it to the card. Vellum is notoriously difficult to adhere invisibly, so I thought I would embrace it and make it as visible as possible ;-) 

Thanks for looking! 

We are sponsored by our lovely and super generous challenge host Helen, and she will be giving away these gorgeous stamps
