Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Stencil It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to
RED WHITE and/or BLUE
It will be Independence Day here in the United States tomorrow, there will be huge processions, Stars and Stripes flying, fireworks and generally lots of people having fun! We would love for you to join in the party by creating something using one or all of the red/white/blue colours. We will be looking forward to seeing whatever colour/s you choose to use!
This week we are showcasing some fabulous Sizzix Products. Sizzix produce a huge range of Die Cut Machines, Craft Dies, Embossing Folders and so much more, you don’t have to use them to join in 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

We are welcoming back Beulah Bee into the Designer Spotlight, you may remember she was with us last year and it is such a pleasure to have her joining us again! :-)
As in past years Barbara has dedicated the theme of this week to her American friends, creating for them a panel with this wonderful Sizzix die, Paper Doll by idea-ology, Distress oxides and Ranger Texture paste opaque crackle.
Emma used a variety of Sizzix dies including Dimensional Stars, Stitched Ovals, Scrolls and the Deco Alpha Die to create a panel in celebration of Independence Day and to wish all of her American friends, a very Happy 4th July!
Lols made a cocktail recipe box in preparation for all of the 4th July parties! I used a Sizzix Big Shot Plus to die cut a Recipe Box and used Fired Brick and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks to colour the background before white embossing a script design over the top. She used a Simon’s Exclusive Adult Beverages stamp set and Cheers Die to decorate. Let the party begin!
So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your red, white and blue inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
