Simon Says: Fun With Stencils!

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


This week Simon Says: Fun With Stencils and we are featuring always amazing Tim Holtz products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!          



There is nothing I love more than using Tim Holtz Distress Inks with a good stencil! I used obviously a rainbow array of my Distress Inks for my panel and a new Penguin Palace stencil called Ripple Tide.

I ink blended one layer and decided to offset it and ink blend it a second time and I like the effect it has given.


 I die cut my panel and then I chose the top layer of this amazing Simon Says Stamp Just Because sentiment.  I die cut it using Tonic Black Glitter card stock and added it to the panel with glue.


To finish off, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins and a purple clay heart. Simple card to put together but fun to make!

Simon Says: Something New!

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


This week Simon Says: Something New and we are featuring super fun The Rabbit Hole Designs products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!          


I just love my Glimmer Foil Machine and thought this was perfect for this weeks challenge Something New. I paired my new The Rabbit Hole Hello Hot Foil Plate with the new Sketched Rose Blossom and Leaves foil and cut die set from the latest Simon Says Stamp release.


I foiled my sentiment first and die cut my panel and set it aside. I decided to go tone on tone for the flowers and leaves. Not sure why I chose purple not my favourite color but I liked the differences in the shades. 

I added selective splatter to my panel with some Distress Paint and then added my foliage with a mix of glue and foam tape.


To finish off, I added some Gold Foil Gems and a purple candy heart. I added my panel to the card base using fun foam!

You're The Best!

 Happy New Year! I can't believe we are 2022. The last 22-months has been very difficult on all of us, I am not sure if the years seem to drag or fly by!

I have been off the grid over the last few weeks, we are facing another strict lockdown with a curfew here in Qu├ębec (not sure why we have another curfew...) The holidays have been once again just my husband, dogs and I. No family or friends allowed. But, on a super fun note meet Mozzie!


We lost our beautiful 14 year-old Golden in early October and our Springer Duffy was a little lost and to be honest so were we.  So this little dude was my Christmas present and we are over the moon. He is so smart and sweet. I named him after my favorite character from the TV Show White Collar. The character of Mozzie was portrayed by Willie Garson who sadly passed away in September.

On to crafting! I got to play with some super fun and amazing new Simon Says Stamp products for this card :)


I needed to emboss this panel, the Simon Says Stamp 3D embossing folders are fierce, I love them. I then die cut my Butterfly from rainbow holographic paper and some Tonic Black Glitter.


I put my butterfly together and set is aside so the glue could dry properly. I used the You're The Best Sentiment released last fall with White and Black Tonic Glitter paper and glued it to the panel. I then added my butterfly using a small piece of foam tape.


I added my panel to the card base and to finish off, added some Pretty Pink Posh Gems!

Thanks so much for taking the time, wishing you all the best for 2022.

Simon Says: Party Time!

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


This week Simon Says: Party Time and we are featuring amazing Simon Says Stamp Brand Exclusives - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!         



I can't believe Christmas is only a few days away! This weeks Challenge will be for a two-week period and the theme this week is Party Time!

I decided to take out my Confetti Stencil and some Rainbow Deco Foil with my Mini Mink for this one! I also decided to change things up and use all black, which I never do! I started by adding my Deco Foil Transfer gel and set my panel aside to dry.


I die cut my Simon Says Stamp Champagne Flutes and the new Simon Says Stamp Cheers! die from some Tonic Glitter paper and fun foam for dimension.

I then die cut an A2 size black background panel. I put my foil and top panel through my Mini Mink (so happy with the effect) glued my top and bottom panel together.


Added my die cuts to the panel and then added everything to my card base!
Happiest holiday wishes! Hoping 2022 is amazing for all of us!

Simon Says: Bling It On!

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


This week Simon Says: Bling It On and we are featuring fun Stamping Bella products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!         



This cling set by Stamping Bella is so sweet! You have three options for the inside of the snow globe, I chose the snowman for my card today and added my bling with the snow!

I started by stamping my globe then the inside image and coloured everything with my COPIC markers. I then ink blended my background using Salvaged Patina Distress Ink.


I added some Unicorn Dust and Chunky Glitter to my image to act as the snow and set it aside to dry.

I die cut my top panel using an older Studio Katia die set from my stash and embossed my snow with a Tim Holtz embossing folder.


I put everything together using foam tape and added some snowflakes and gems from my stash. I finished off with some White gel pen detail.

Simon Says: Cold As Ice!

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


This week Simon Says: Cold As Ice and we are featuring super fun Stampendous! products - it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $25 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!         



I love these mice by Stampendous and I thought how fun to have him in a hot cup of something when it's super cold outside.  I stamped and colored my image with my COPIC Markers and added some Simon Says Stamp Unicorn Dust to all the red sections and set it aside to dry.


I wasn't sure where I wanted my sentiment so I stamped and embossed it on vellum so that I could see the positioning on the panel before gluing it in place. I added some red twine form my stash to balance the vellum on the panel.


To finish off, I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins!
