Simon Says: Anything Goes


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

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing Altenew Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some 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 LOVE how this turned out! I experimented quite a bit with various inks and papers but in the end my preferred products for this stamped watercolor technique are Ranger Watercolor Paper and Distress Inks

I made a 2nd card using the same colors and used the coordinating dies

Which one do you like best? I think I prefer the 1st one myself ;-)

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting


If you use instagram 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

Simon Says Stamp 'Mod Ornament'

This week on the Papertake Weekly Challenge the theme is 

Sketch #107 or Sketchie Free For All
Colour:  Red/Green
Technique: Glitter It Up
Product: Anything 'Bauble' Shaped.

I used a gorgeous new 'Mod Ornament' Die from Simon Says Stamp

I scored the card so that it had a 3mm gap on the inside so that I could add 3D foam adhesive behind the shaker. I used a new Fuse Tool for the shaker and I have to say I LOVE LOVE LOVE it! If you haven't got one then this is THE tool to add to your Christmas list, along with maybe a Minc Machine ;-)

I apologise for the photo's, I have taken dozens and can't seem to get a good one. The base card is a really crisp white, not cream. I need to learn how to use photoshop properly :/

We are sponsored by Heidi and the lovely peeps at Simon Says Stamp so a fabulous gift voucher is on offer this week! 

I am now getting ready to pop over to the UK on Thursday. I hope you all have a great week!
