Simon Says 'We're Seeing Stars'




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

We're Seeing Stars 

This week we are showcasing My Favorite Things 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 over to see what our fabulous and super talented guest Karin has made for us this week! It is Out Of This World!! ;-) 

I sort of got carried away with these super cute  Purr-Fect Friends Stamps  and papers and almost forgot the theme but a roll of starry washi tape came to the rescue ;-) 



I am not a huge fan of fussy cutting and always prefer to buy Coordinating Dies whenever possible but I did have to cut the paper from a Dots and Stripes Bright Paper Pack  to fit inside the birdcage. 


Now here's where it gets a bit messy, if you are of a funny disposition then shut your eyes before scrolling down, poor ickle birdie ;-)



So now it's YOUR turn to get out your starry supplies and join in!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

Simon Says Stamp 'Fingerprint Doodles'

I received a lovely 'Happy Mail' parcel from Simon Says Stamp with samples from the latest 'One Of A Kind' Release and really LOVE these super cute Fingerprint Doodles! Cute or what!! :-)



I have family and friends staying with us at the mo' and thought it would be nice to make some place name cards so that everyone would know where they 'should' sit ;-) 


For my Mum, she is a spring chicken;-)


Dad is a sly old fox ;-)


Basia is Amy's friend here from Poland, she is tall and quite glamorous so I thought the best fit for her was this beautiful long legged Flamingo ;-)


Daughter Amy, well of course as a cat lover she has to be a Tigger


My sister is a lovely duck 


Brother in Law is a turtle 


I am Pisces so I had to be a fish


and last but not least hubby, as the main dog walker he had to be a Jessie ;-)


 I also thought it would be nice to make coordinating napkin rings, and I will do that just as soon as I have some time to spare ;-)

Simon Says 'Get In Shape'










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

This week we are challenging you to
Get In Shape
no, we don't mean join the gym ;-)

This week we would like you to create something shapely! You could create something 3D, a box or folder for example, or you could create a card with 3D elements or a fitness theme. Whatever you decide to make, we will be looking forward to seeing it!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
Our super talented and very lovely Guest Cathie aka Beulah Bee has decorated a gorgeous and very special box, please pop over to see it on her blog! 

I made a little winter holiday cabin to add to my Christmas village. I started by die cutting the basic Village Dwelling Die using Simon's Exclusive #120 white yardstick, this is perfect for creating a solid base from which to start.



I then used the wood and text design papers from a Tidings Pack to paper piece the walls and roof. 

I used a Village Winter die to add on the snow and icicles and used red card for the chimney and windows oct. 


I added some little trees, sprayed with a green copic marker and used Nuvo White Blizzard Glitter Drops to create the garlands. 


I made a 5x5 inch base using a Score Pal and added White Texture Paste and a palette knife to apply 'snow' 


I love making these little houses and will have a whole village ready by December, hopefully ;-)




Thanks for looking! 

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
