Simon Says....Stamp-temper Blog Hop and Treasure Hunt !

For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER hop and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays.

To help celebrate we will be giving a BIG BASKET OF CRAFTING GOODIES tothe winner of this hop! PLUS 3 $25 VOUCHERS to the Simon Says Stamp Store ! The vouchers will be the hidden treasure on 3 DT blogs and you have to find them.

The Blog hop will finish on September 5th, 2011 at on the Simon Says Stamp & Show Blog.

The theme for both challenges this week will be ANYTHING GOES. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilitiesare endless !

You will need to hop through each blog, find the little parcel of goodies and make a note on which designer’s blog you found them. You do not HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs but we would appreciate any comments you would like to leave. If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs

The last stop on the hop is the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog. You will need to leave a comment there with the names of the 3 blogs with treasure chest pictures. The comments will be moderated so you will not be able to see the answers.

For more details please refer to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge or the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blogs for more details.

If you arrived here from Dan's Blog then you are going in the right direction otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.












Oooh I'm just loving making Christmas things at the moment !


The DP's I have used are Pink Paislee "Father Christmas" and these are soooo yummy ! I have machine stitched them all.

The image is by La La Land Crafts and this is "Santa Marci" - isn't she the cutest ? Simon Says Stamp has just started stocking these stamps and carries a huge range of them ! She has been coloured with a mix of ProMarkers and Copics. I have covered her trimmings with Diamond Stickles


I used the Cuttlebug embossing folder "Snowflakes" and I cut the embossing out with Nestabilities Large Deckled Rectangles

The chipboard Christmas tree is from my stash. I inked it with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and then added some Diamond Stickles to it.

The sentiment has been made using some ribbon from my stash, a tag cut from Nestabilities Tags Five and words from a Hero Arts sentiment sent to me in my DT pack from Heidi.

The flower is from my stash. I took out the stamens and placed a punched snowflake in the centre and then replaced the stamens. The snowflake is from a Martha Stewart snowflake punch.

From here you need to go to the super talented Linda Coughlin for more inspiration :-) I would appreciate a comment if you would like to leave one Smile


Thank you so much to everyone who has already voted but I am still begging for votes for my card over at La-La Land Crafts Challenge !

You can see my card
HERE and there is a link so you can leave a comment to vote for me - pretty please !! There are also details at the top of my sidebar - I am desperate as you can tell !!! My card is number 17 so I would love it if you could comment/vote for ~17 !!


Happy Hopping !!
