Simon Says: Things With Wheels


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Typography Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week we would like you to think about wheels. This theme has so many interpretations, you might think about cars, bikes etc, or maybe what makes the wheels go around, cogs and gears, or maybe even the wheels of time! Lets get those cogs in our brains working!

 Lucyna made a tag I made for an abecedarian driver. She used  Kelly Creates Tracing Paper Pad and Derwent 24 Inktense Colored Pencils Watercolor for  making this little car.Ranger Archival Ink Pad Jet Black and Tim Holtz Distress Mini Ink Pad Barn Door for stamping,.Couture Creations White 3D Foam Dots were used for mounting all together  and one of  Tim Holtz Idea ology 2015 Loop Pins  to embellish the tag.This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is Lula-Wheels-1-1.jpg

Andrea thought a bird on roller skates would be the perfect way to fulfill this week’s theme!  She used Tim Holtz’s Tiny Houses die, Inky Antics’ Roller Bird stamp, and Derwent Inktense colored pencils.

Anna-Karin‘s favorite thing with wheels is a bike, and she made a scrapbooking layout about a forest bike ride. The bike was stamped with a stamp from Tim Holtz Purely Random set, and the fun circle shapes were die cut with the Simon Says Stamp Circle Loops set.

Spring is fast approaching! This week Barbara created a decoration using Idea-ology Gadget gears findings  in an unusual way as the basis for her pot. Flowers arrangement has made with Tim Holtz Sizzix Wild flower stems 1, Tim Holtz Sizzix Wild flower stems 2 and she painted  them with Distress oxides. Final touch: her beloved Idea-Ology Paper Dolls.

Cheiron was inspired by the wheels and mechanisms inside a typewriter and used the Tim Holtz Stampers Anonymous Inventor 1 stamps to create her card. The background is made using Distress Oxides and the Shifter Burst Layering Stencil and finished with a Tim Holtz Ideaology Metallic Quotations sticker.

Emma‘s project was inspired by one of her favourite books from childhood, The Flower Fairies and used Tim Holtz Vignette Boxes and Mini Pulley Wheels to create a vintage style home decor project complete with a Baseboard Paper Doll and her fluttering transparent wings.

Kath decorated an Idea-ology Mini Clipboard with Tim Holtz/Sizzix Wildflower Stems 1 and used Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Inventor 7, BlockPrint, Mini Stencil Set 41 and Sizzix Gearhead Thinlits to add wheel elements on the background

Lols decorated a couple of pages in her Dylusions Art Journal using Visible Image ‘Ahead Of Our Time and  Somewhere In Time Clear Stamp Sets and a Simon’s Exclusive Jazz Dance Stencil. The wheels of time spin so quickly!This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is DSC08310-001.jpg

Macarena opted for a metal steering wheel from Prima St. Tropez collection and a gave a texture with TCW Mini Specimens stencil. She framed this sweet crab with one of Tim Holtz Idea-ology Baseboard Frames.

Maura turned Andrea’s stamp from the Inky Antics Color Wheel set  into 3D flowers. She made “leaves” with the Darkroom Door Paint Tubes stamp and added lots of bright color with Prima’s Oil Pastel Crayons.

Meihsia was inspired to create mixed media tag using Tim Holtz Layering Stencil Mosaic for the texture on the background and embellished with the stamped images using Tim Holtz Cling Rubber Stamp Travel Ways. Sandra focused on the wheels part like in the wheels of Gearhead die set, she created some texture using the Mixed Media #6 die set, and added some color with Infusions In The Navy and Nuvo Shimmer Powder Storm Cloud.

Zoey used Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Collector design tape and Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Journey design tape to decor this tag. She also used a bunch of distress ink to add color.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!
