Simon Says: Little Critters










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

Little Critters 

Whether you choose to feature your own pets or prefer to delve into the wider animal kingdom we will be looking forward to seeing which little critters you choose to feature on your creations! 


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

I used a Tiger from a set of Dylusions Die Cuts and a little bird from a Cat Among The Pigeons stamp set along with a new Creative Dyary to create a fun diary planner page.


As soon as I saw the Creative Dyary I thought that it would be a fun way to plan and when my daughter saw it she said that she would love one. These would be great for kids in high school too don't you think! :-)

I love that the background pages are decorated, it makes it so easy and quick to decorate, perfect to do while travelling too, I love it, can you tell!! :-)


The lovely Stephanie, who works for Simon, is here with her boyfriend on vacation and this was my planning for last week ;-) 


I love the cute little bird chatting to the tigress, maybe the little bird is asking her not to eat him ,, haha ;-)



Thanks for looking!

House Mouse 'Helium Ride' + Giveaway

Hi all, I am here with a reminder for the  theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge. This time it's my turn to choose the theme.

EMBOSSING
 I love all types of embossing, be it heat, dry or using yummy embossing pastes, you can always choose the Anything Goes option too though if embossing is not your thing ;-)

I used a super cute Helium Ride Cling stamp that I will be giving away at the end of this challenge! The winner will, of course, receive a new one ;-)


I coloured with a mix of   Polychromos and Prismacolor Pencils ❤️


and I finished the inside ;-)

Simon Says: A Bit Of Sparkle




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

This week the challenge is

A Bit Of Sparkle 


I think most of us like a little bit of sparkle. I think I must have been a magpie in a previous life as I do love glitter and shiny stuff ;-)

This week we are showcasing our very own exclusive Simon Says Stamp 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


Please pop by to see what our super talented guest Sonia and the DT have made, and please leave comments :-) 



I used Watercolour paper and white heat embossed the background design. I then sprinkled A Bit Jaded and Blackcurrant Infusions and then spritzed with water, the transformation was amazing to watch! A few tiny specks goes a long way. I used kitchen towel to remove a lot of the colour as I wanted the background to be quite subtle. I absolutely LOVE this effect and now need to get all of the infusions colours! 

I used an iron to remove the melted embossing powder. 


I really didn't want to cover any of the background so I simply die cut a circle of vellum and then added some sparkly twine, sequins and 'hugs' to finish it off. I added extra sparkle using a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen over the die cut 'Hugs' 





So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
