Simon Says: Tag It!










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

This week we are challenging you to create a tag or something with a tag attached.

Tag It!

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 Amber  and the DT have made!! awesome tag goodness!! 

I made a tag to attach to my brother's 60th birthday gift, I am not suggesting for one minute that he is an old goat though 😜


 I white heat embossed the Tim Holtz Graph Background, creating a resist for the Distress Oxide Inks.  I also used a text stamp from a WOW Embossing Wall Art Stamp Set inked with Simon's Slate Grey ink and used a TH Splatters Layering Stencil and Espresso Ink to add more interest. 

 

I used a cute Goat from a Tim Holtz Hipster Stamp Set along with the coordinating die set as the focal point of the tag.
I used an embossing pen to scribble over the sunglasses area and clear embossed to look like real shades ;-) 




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

Challenges:
Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers 'T' for technique: heat emboss resist ;-)

Suzy Plantamura's Birds and Butterflies

Hi everyone, I hope you're all having a lovely weekend and if you're at Creativation I am sure that you will be having a fabulous time!! I am really enjoying all of the video clips that are coming through, all full of new and exciting crafty goodness!! 

I have been trying to join in with Kathy Racoosin's aka The Daily Marker  30 Day Colouring Challenge and I am, already days behind, but I do intend to catch up ;-)

My watercoloring skills are definitely in need of improvement so I thought I would have a go at colouring one of these gorgeous pre printed images from Suzy Plantamura's Birds and Butterflies Set, perfect for spring I thought ;-) 


These panels are printed onto Tim Holtz Watercolor Paper, so its a lovely quality. 
I coloured with Distress Inks and then used small flower and heart stamps to decorate the front. I love how this has turned out and can't wait to colour up the other cards in this set. 




Thanks for looking! 

These are the 12 designs in the Birds and Butterflies Prints Set, aren't they gorgeous and at only $9.99 I think they are a great bargain!!

Now which one shall I colour up next,,,, hmmmm ;-) 



Time for a coffee now, catch ya'll later :-)


Challenges:
Crafty Friends.  New Beginnings.  (New Home)
Hiding In My Craft Room.  Colour It
As You Like It.   Favorite Die. I love Simon's Stiched Rectangle Die, so simple and gives a lovely edge. I use it on almost every card and have almost worn them out!
