Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Distress It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week we are challenging you to
Get In Shape
This week we would like you to create something shapely! You could create something 3D, a box or folder for example, or you could create a card with 3D elements or a fitness theme. Whatever you decide to make, we will be looking forward to seeing it!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Andrea made some quick and easy quote blocks to give away as gifts. She typed the quotes using her We R Memory Keepers Typewriter and decorated the blocks with patterned paper from various collections such as Echo Park’s Happiness is Homemade, Simple Stories’ Snap Basics, and My Mind’s Eye’s Hooray.
Barbara was inspired by Tim Holtz Rings background to build a tiny colorful house. To create decorations and flowers she used Tropical die by Sizzix/Tim Holtz and she painted everything with Distress Oxides!
Cathie created a card with a large dimensional rose as the focal point that was created using the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals Bigz Die. The Prima Mini Metal Stars and Tim Holtz Number Brad also add dimension.
Macarena would like to just sail away with her Salvaged boat she made with some sticks brought from a seaside and pieces of Dina Wakley canvas using Tim Holtz Mosaic Stencil and coloring the sails with Distress Inks. She also used a piece of Simon Says Stamp White Felt and some Moonshine sequins.
Maura made some starry gift containers to keep on hand, using Seth Apter’s Eclectica3 Wood Chips, Tim Holtz Melange Eclectic Elements fabric, and 28 Lilac Lane Toasted Graham and Winter Blues embellishments.
Sandra had lots of fun creating this tea box out of foam board as a gift for her friend. The beautiful background color is Vibrant Turquoise Dylusions Paint and on top of that is black colored Texture Paste with the Simon Says Stamp Circular Lace stencil
