Simon Says ,,,,,, Tag You’re It !! :-)

Hi all :-) If this posts properly then I will be just about to land in the UK to visit my family and I daresay do a little Christmas shopping !!! :-)

Simon Says ,,,,,, Tag you’re It

you can make a tag or add a tag to a creation ,,,easy :-)

The DT are using various Die’s that are available in the Simon says Stamp Store but you don’t have to use them to join in :-)

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !! For fabulous tutorials, inspiration and candy you should keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp Blog too

Its a good idea to keep a check on the All New Just In Pages , there is invariably some new goodies listed and it is a handy way to keep up to date with all things new and crafty !!

For my card I used basic white and brown cardstock and made the backgrounds using a Hero Arts Large Fabric design and a Flourish Cling stamp. I also used a Sizzix Swirl Embossing folder, Vintage Photo Distress Ink and Hero Arts Clear and White Embossing Powders

I used a My Favorite Things Tag You’re It die for the tag and used the dot stamp in the set to stamp around the edge. The lovely flower was made using a Hero Arts Stamp and Die Cut Floral set, the sentiment is with the tag set. I used some ribbon, American tag twine, some Hero Arts Gems and a Basic Grey button to finish.

Thanks for looking :-) America and the DT have made some gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)

Please leave me a comment to let me know you popped by and I will see you when I get back. Happy Crafting Smile

ABC Christmas ,,,, ‘X’ for Xerox

Hi all :-) This is a scheduled post, at the moment I will be just about landing in the UK about to start a week of Xmas shopping ! :-)

This fortnight on the ABC Christmas Challenge it is Dorte’s turn to host and the theme is

X for Xerox ,, not as difficult as it sounds, you have to choose a DT or GD card from the previous challenges and ‘CASE’ it ,,, ie, use it as your inspiration. For more detailed instructions please visit the challenge blog :-)

We are sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps AND Digital Delights so a fab choice of Digi images on offer for one lucky entrant :-)

For my card I ‘Xeroxed’ a card made by Carissa for the ‘C’ for CAS Challenge.

I used very cute Pickle Penguin stamp from the Wild Rose Studio, this one is called Pickle with Present. I coloured with copics and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass DI, The papers are from an Authentique Journey pack. I added some white seam binding from The ribbon Girl, a Hero Arts Felt Snowflake and a few gems to finish.

This is Carissa’s gorgeous card, I used a penguin, similar colours, embellies ,design papers and layout :-)

Thanks for the inspiration Carissa :-)

I am away for a few days so I will see you all when I get back :-) Please leave me a comment so I know you popped by :-) Now hop on over to the ABC Christmas Challenge to see what everyone else made too,,,Happy Crafting Smile
