Simon Says: Whatever The Weather


Hi all!Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

This week the theme is

Whatever The Weather 

As it is the first Monday of the month we are showcasing a particular company or designer. This week we are all using products designed by the fabulous Tim Holtz 

I am thinking about all of those affected by the terrible tornadoes in Alabama/Georgia yesterday. So sad to hear of loss of life and homes, what a tragedy :-(

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
This week we are welcoming  the lovely and super talented Lisa Rabellino into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven't visited her blog you are in for a real treat! Please pop by to say 'Hi' :-)

I made a tag filled with some lovely warm summery sunshine 🌞

I used largest size in a Framelits Tags Die Set, I am sure we all have some stamps and dies that we seem to use more than any other, well, this is one of those sets! 

I started by clear heat embossing bits from a Botanical Cling Stamp and then used Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky and Mowded Lawn Distress Oxide Inks over the top. I then sprinkled with Slime and Lemoncello Infusions and spritzed with water. I then randomly stamped some script with Black Archival and added some sunshine using a Visible Image Strobes Stencil and yellow tinted  embossing paste 




I then die cut lots of leaves and flowers using a Funky Florals 1 Die Set, coloured with Squeezed Lemonade, Worn Lipstick, Mowed Lawn and Forest Moss Inks. I then added a Mini Detailed Butterfly and a sentiment from a Small Talk Sticker Set. 



 Artsy Angle ;-)
