I hope you had a fun & safe weekend! We’re thrilled about all of the new product pouring into Simon Says Stamp lately…keep your eyes peeled for even more this week! In the meantime, here’s a fun Challenge to help get your creativity flowing so you can use what you have!
This week’s Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge theme is Water! Make sure to enter for a chance to win a $50.00 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp! Here is what three of our Stamp & Show designers made for the theme!
Sarah had this to say: Whilst I’m not so bothered about the real ones, I love flowers in all their crafty forms so when I started on this project I thought a field full of daisies with a dramatic inky background would work well together… I’m not someone who does a lot with die cut pieces but when I saw the Simon Says Fresh Daisies I could see my tag blooming before my very eyes! My background uses a lot of the more vibrant Distress Stains which I have let bleed and run by spritzing with a Mini Mister, then I added a little extra contrast by stamping Tim Dots in white paint. My inky, creative time is hard to find these days but it is always good therapy and that was the inspiration behind my stamped sentiment. Don’t let your inky soul go dry.
Tracy had this to say: This is one die I have actually never used and thought it was about time to correct that situation and the water challenge seemed the perfect opportunity. Metal Foil Tape has been textured using the Riveted Metal Texture Fade to add a little more interest to the umbrella. Wendy Vecchi’s White Embossing Paste adds the all important texture to the background and Glossy Accents give me my water droplets. I don’t think I have ever danced in the rain, maybe I should try!
Suzanne had this to say: The bright happy colors of the background made me think of Easter eggs and springtime. I made a beautiful set of Spring Themed Arches. To create the arches I used the Poppy Stamps – Gothic Window Die and die cut out a series of frames from the background papers. To go with the spring theme I used the sweet Stampendous Feather Bonnet Baby and Stampendous Floral Bonnet Baby stamps. I added the flowers from the Stampers Anonymous – Spring Sprung in the background. I am participating in a swap of Easter Arches and can’t wait to share mine.
