This week we are challenging you to join us for our 7th Birthday celebrations

Happy Birthday

We would like you to create something to help with our birthday celebration! It could be a card, a tag to attach to a gift, a gift or maybe a birthday banner or cake topper! Whatever you decide to make we will be looking forward to seeing how you join us for the party!

As it is the first Monday of the month, as as it is our birthday, we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products!

A birthday wouldn’t be the same without extra gifts so for this challenge we will be giving away not one but 2 X $50 vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Simo is so thrilled to celebrate our Birthday and for  being chosen as Guest Designer for this month, so she made a Journal spread with some of her all time favorite goodies, together with our Simon’s Exclusives ‘Sentiments of Be’ Die and Stamp Set and ‘You’ Die

Andrea made some gift card boxes using Simon Says Stamp’s Hydrangea Petal dies, Grunge Alphabet stamp set, and Sparkle and Shine stamp set.

Anna-Karin made a clear whale-themed birthday card, using a whole bunch of Simon Says Stamp Exclusive stamps, dies and surfaces, such as the brand new Encouraging Animals stamp and die set, Big Day die, Circle Doodle Background stamp, and vellum.

Barbara celebrates her birthday during this month same as Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! She created a birthday card with a lot of Simon’s Exclusives dies and stamps: new  FLORAL BURST COLLAGE Wafer DiesSimon Says Clear Stamps AUTUMN GREETINGSSimon Says Stamp BEST DAY EVER Wafer Die, Simon Says Clear Stamps ENVELOPE GREETINGS and Distress oxides.

For the frame she used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares and Clustered Leaves dies. Finally she put the sentiment using SSS Happy Birthday die.

 

Maura made a card of 7’s to celebrate, using Simon Says Stamp’s Kaleidoscope Background stamp and It’s Your Birthday set, along with Simon’s High Dive and Doll Pink inks.

Meihsia celebrates Simon’s birthday with creating a mixed media gift tag using Simon Says Rubber Stamp Falling Stars on the background and the cute unicorn image from Simon Says Clear Stamp Magical Birthday.
