Simon Says Challenge

Good morning and welcome to another challenge at Simon Says Challenge !

What a fabulous response we had to our "shabby chic" challenge last week and just look at those numbers for the DT call and we still have another week to go ! There are many stunning entries and the decision is going to be tough !

This week we have a nice easy challenge for you as I am sure that either in use regularly or hidden in a drawer somewhere you have a few punches !! So this week, the challenge is to use your punches.

The DT were given a fabulous DT pack by Heidi and mine contained some gorgeous Hero Arts cling heart stamps which I was dying to try out !

The DP's are BasicGrey "Sugar Rush".

The punches I used are a corner punch for the card and papers, Martha Stewart heart punch, EK Success retro flower punches and a woodware leaf punch.

The large heart is Hero Arts and I've added a Melissa Frances transfer and also a wooden heart which I painted with picket fence distress crackle paint and sprayed the whole heart with marshmallow glimmer mist.

The smaller hearts are also Hero Arts which I have had for a long time but only just discovered again hidden away and these have been stamped with Hero Arts blossom shadow ink.

The ruffled ribbon is from my stash.

We look forward to seeing your punched creations and don't forget there is still time to enter our DT call.

Heidi is very generously offering a $25 P&P free shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp store as the prize for this challenge.

This week we have a guest designer - Sue AKA Scoopystuff. Please help me welcome Sue - head to her blog & leave her some love!!!!

Now I was going to take off the snow effect from my blog but by the look of today's weather, I think it ought to remain a little while longer ! Very heavy rain has turned into very heavy snow within the last half hour and the traffic reports are going mad with people suck in their cars in Gloucester and even Swindon ! It's amazing that it always happens on a Wednesday too. This is the third Wednesday in a row !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave, as always, they mean so much especially at the moment as I'm not being very blog active but I'm trying to leave as many comments as I can in return.

Take care and wrap up warm !

  1. Hi Jo! You've put some really great techniques into your card. The transfer on the large heart (not that it was hard, but it looks terrific!) the distress paint and glimmer mist on the small heart, the papers you used on the retro flowers... everything is very nice :D Thanks for the inspiration!
    Love and hugs ~ Lori
