Simon Says: Sparkle and Shine





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


This week the challenge is 

Sparkle and Shine  

We are showcasing Tonic Studio Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see what our lovely guest Yoonsun and the DT have made, super sparkly and fabulous creations! 

I used a Tim Holtz Roses Layering Stencil and Peony Pink and Aquamarine Mousse to create the background and blended using a Mini Blending Brush Set


I then used a script stamp and Smoke Grey Ink to stamp randomly over the background and used a border die to add some x's along the edges 

For the main focus of the card I used  Simon's Exclusive Devonshire Butterfly and Paulina Butterfly Dies 



I used the same Peony Pink  mousse to colour a background layer and adhered this onto a strip of Silver Screen Glitter Card. I wrapped some silver string around, tied a bow and added some Carnation Pink Crystal Drops  and a Painted Hello die cut to finish 






So now it's YOUR turn to sparkle and shine!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

House Mouse 'Ice Pop treat'


It's time for a new House Mouse and Friends Challenge. This time the lovely Sue D is our hostess and the theme is 

Anything Goes 
+ the option of 'lets eat'
I used this adorable 'Ice Pop Treat' image and colours it in one of my fave flavours, I love orange, my other fave being lemon ;-) 


I coloured with copy markers and just added a little bit or white pencil to gently highlight. I went over the entire ice lolly with a Nuvo Aqua Shimmer Pen, this doesn't really show on the pic, but it looks lovely and icy irl ;-) 

I stamped the edges with an Orange Slush Hybrid ink pad and  a little stamp that is in the Stampendous Brushed Wishes stamp set.
