Simon Says Challenge - Punch It Out !

Thank you to everyone who joined in with our fabulous and worthwhile challenge last week for the Caring Hearts Card Drive. I am sure that all the cards sent will be much appreciated.

This week, our challenge is "Punch It Out" so we would love to see you all using your punches ! The Design Team this week are showcasing Hero Arts Stamps. Simon Says Stamp sells a huge, huge range of Hero Arts Stamps which come in the most amazing designs.

We are again joined by the amazing Dawny P as our Guest Designer.

The lucky winner will win a $25 shopping spree in the Simon Says Stamp Store !

The stamp I used is by Hero Arts and is called "Antique Background". Its a huge stamp but the great thing about it is that you can use as much or as little of the stamp as you want. The butterflies would be just perfect stamped on their own.

I used a mixture of distress inks for the background and the painting of the butterflies. I stamped the largest butterfly twice and cut it out. I added some Stickles to the wings.

The lace is by Prima.

The punch I used is a Martha Stewart punch called "pinking scallop".

The sentiment is from a clear Hero Arts stamp set called "Share Laughter". I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder.

The rest of the Design Team's card are gorgeous, you must hop over and see them and leave them some love !

We look forward to seeing how you use your punches. If you have any Hero Arts stamps, we would love to see them but you don't have to use them in this challenge we just wanted to show you how fabby they are !

Thank you for your visit and for any comments you may leave. They are really appreciated.

Love 'n' hugs,
