Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Get Crafty and Use Kraft !




Before I tell you about this week's challenge, I have something really exciting to share with you !

On Monday, I travelled to London to meet .... wait for it ..... Heidi and Stephanie from Simon Says Stamp !  Yes, they flew all the way over from the USA to come and meet us and of course, enjoy the sights and sounds of London !

Not only did I meet up with Heidi and Stephanie but also Lorraine, Debby, Heather, Debby Hughes, Caryn, Mandy and Stephanie Wincott of Clearly Besotted Stamps !  Wow, what a line up !


We all went for lunch at Simpson's on The Strand and it was delish !  Their speciality is roast beef !



If you happened to watch Downton Abbey on Sunday, you will have seen Lady Mary also enjoying the roast beef in Simpson's !!

It was a magical day and certainly a day I will remember  !  All these ladies are just amazing inside and out and I just can't wait to meet them again very soon.

I have always loved these ghosts from the Clearly Besotted stamp and die set "Fright Night" and I had this vision of all the ghosts poking their heads out to say hello !  I love the googly eyes !!

Holly Berries

What a wet and dreary day ! Perfect for card making !

I've been having a play with another stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps in collaboration with Simon Says Stamp and this one is called "Holly Berries".

I made this card using the same technique as my previous card i.e. using distress markers on watercolor card.  I used the new dies by Simon Says Stamp called "Bundle of Stitched Shapes" to cut the watercolor card.  I love the stitched effect around the outside.

Have you seen that Simon Says Stamp have released some new ink colours ?  I have used a new one called "Sparrow" on this card, a lovely brown/grey colour, gorgeous.

I wanted to add the effect of falling snow so I grabbed my falling snow stencil, attached it to my card and dabbed Versamark all over it before heat embossing with Wow Sparkling Snow embossing glitter.  It looks great in real life, all sparkly but with just enough white powder to make it look like snow.  I think you can just see it in the photo.


I'm entering the following challenges :

CAS on Sunday - Emboss It !
Crazy for CAS - One Layer Stamping
