Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Happy Birthday


Hiya lovelies, it is Wednesday which means a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge   This week the challenge is

Happy Birthday!  

It is our 8th Birthday this week !! Simon’s Challenge blog is amazing and I am not surprised that they have been around for 8 years. I consider myself extremely lucky to be part of the Simon Says Stamp family and have to say they are amazing. This week we are showcasing our very own Simon Says Stamp Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

A birthday is always special and the lovely and very generous Heidi will be giving away not one, not two but EIGHT yes EIGHT $50 Vouchers to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store. Woo Hoo!! bd0-001

 Hubby surprised me with a lovely gift last week of Some new Pencils (I know he is amazing) and this card is my first ever “play” with them.
I used the super cute Birthday Celebration stamp set from Simon and stamped the cute little elephant onto some Kraft card using Simon’s Barely Beigh Inkpad so I could use No Line colouring.
The balloons I masked off and repeat stamped until I had 8. I then set about colouring it all with the pencils.
Once it was all coloured I used Lawn Fawn Stitched Scalloped Borders, the smallest one from the set and die cut the top and bottom, the top I did some partial die cutting to allow for the balloons.
I then heat embossed the sentiment and adhered it along with one of Lawn Fawn’s Rainbow Plaid paper which came in Simon’s April Card Kit to a top folding Kraft notecard.
I finished off with some Studio Katia Sparkling Fusion Sequins and some Spectrum Noir Sparkle on the balloons.

So now it’s YOUR turn to join in with our birthday celebrations!!

I love the look of the polychromos on the kraft and I haven’t tried it yet. But I love your card so much and I am going to try this very soon! I have several of the polychromos to play with.

Thanks so much Lynn, they are gorgeous pencils I have to admit I was nervous about using them but feel in love with them instantly. Sending hugs xxx

I can’t wait to see what you do with them Vicky, they are lovely to use on Kraft and blend really well.
