Simon Says Challenge - Anything But a Card

Simon Says Stamp
What a beautiful day ! The sun is shining, the birds are singing and its just gorgeous out there !

It is that time of week again for another challenge over at Simon Says Challenge !

Before I tell you about this week's challenge we would like to welcome our new Design Team members who are also joining us for this challenge !  You can see their stunning creations on the Simon Says Challenge Blog.

So, this week's theme is ANYTHING BUT A CARD !  The Design Team are this week featuring Maya Road and Graphic 45 products.  As always, if you have any of these products we would love to see you use them but if not, you can still join in the fun !!
As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

This little tin started out life as a travel sweet tin which I found in my stash of things for altering.

I covered it with the DP and then heat embossed the edge of the lid with white embossing powder but wasn't too worried about evenly covering it to give it that "aged" look.  I do like this effect as the embossing powder looks like enamel.

The buttons I made myself !  I bought some self covering buttons and some material and this little plastic gadget which hey presto ! presses the button, material and button back together.

You can see links to the rest of the embellies I used below.

Edited to say :  Sorry, I forgot to mention what I used on the dress form !  I applied some gold gilding flakes to it !  I could not find any gilding flakes in the Simon Says Stamp Store but I did find some gold leaf which I would imagine is nearly the same thing.

We hope you can join us in our challenge this week and we look forward to seeing your creations.  Should you need some inspiration the rest of the DT have made some awesome creations for you again this week !

Now, before I love you and leave you I just need to tell you about a blog hop that is taking place to celebrate the launch of the new Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Dies !  The hop starts today over at the Simon Says Stamp Blog so hop on over and join in the fun.  There are also lots of fabulous prizes on offer !

  4. Hi Jo, hope you are all well!!!
    Beautiful Jo, such beautiful colours and so many stunning details, I think I should do something similar for travelling instead of a bit of a plastic bag!!!

  8. Hi Jo! What a beautiful altered tin - LOVE the glitzy dress form, and thanks for the tip about using embossing powder; I had no idea it would "stick" to tin! Thanks for the warm welcome, and I'm looking forward to getting to know you....
