Simon Says: Patterned Paper

 Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Patterned Paper and we are using always fun Doodlebug products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!   Come join the fun for the chance to win a $25.00 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp Store!  


I love Doodlebug Patterned Paper! I hoard it in my stash, lol. I used the Sweet and Spooky 6x6 paper pack for my card this week and paired it with these candy die cuts by MFT.

I started by picking my papers and cutting my background panel to size for an A2 card. I then die cut my Simon Says Stamp tag die and embossed it as an anchor for my candies. I die cut and put together my candies and added the to the tag die.


I added some black and white twine from my stash and my Whimsy Stamps Sweet die. To finish off, my favourite iridescent gems.

Simon Says: Use Die Cuts

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

I have been MIA for a few weeks, I am finally at the end of bronchitis which has been very long and slightly painful. Thankfully, I have a good doctor who has me on the mend! But I have not been feeling very crafty. I am happy to be back with a Mother's Day Card using one of my favorite Memory Box dies.

I used my favourite glitter paper and some rectangle dies along with my verdant leaf die, I choose some pretty patterned paper from my stash and used foam tape to glue my leaf frame.


I took my new Lawn Fawn stamps and used the Mother's Day sentiments and added them to the top of the card. I didn't want anything overwhelming that would take away from the leaf!

Simon Says Stamp Celebrate Release Blog Hop - Day 2!

Happy Saturday crafty friends! Welcome to Day two of the Simon Says Stamp Celebrate Release Blog Hop! 


Super fun to be participating today with this fun a little non-traditional coloured wedding card!


I used the new To The Happy Couple Stamps and Dies for my card today and I paired them with the Simon Says Stamp Tumbling Hearts Stencil (one of my favourites).

I coloured my images using COPIC markers and used the accompanying die cuts. I then ink blended my panel using ink that matched my blush coloured theme. I stamped my sentiment from the same stamp set (this is a 6x8 stamp set, you get so many great sentiments and images). 

I glued my images using foam tape and added some candy hearts from my stash!

There is a $25.00 gift card draw for one comment from each blog on the hop! Enjoy the hop!

Simon Says: Stencil It

Hello crafty friends it's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: Stencil It and we are using always super fun Tim Holtz  products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!   Come join the fun for the chance to win a $25.00 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp Store! 


I have had this adorable Harrison die set since it was released and have never had the time time to use this cutie. This was the perfect challenge to finally put him together. I just love him!

I die cut all of my pieces using mostly Lawn Fawn and Simon Says Stamp card stocks from my stash and put him together using a mix of glue and foam tape for dimension and set him aside to finish my background panel.


I took one of my Simon Says Stamp Animal Prints Stencils and Ink blended a mix of Distress Inks on the panel. I added Harrison to the panel with glue and stamped my sentiment. To finish off, some fun brown hearts from my stash!

I love this new Kanga-Riffic stamp set by lawn fawn so I knew I wanted to use this set. I stamped and coloured my images from the set and used the accompanying die cuts then put my pieces to the side.

I die cut my scalloped pop-up box using the super fun new 6 x 6 paper pack also by lawn fawn and glued all of my elements.  I cut some clear acetate in small strips to glue my critters to suspend them on the box pieces.


I added all of the dies cuts then I stamped my sentiment from the same set and added some Lawn Fawn flowers to frame my sentiment!
