Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Snow White Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Furry Friends

We are showcasing Newtons Nook Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


You guys know I love Newtons Nook so was so excited to see we would be working with their products for this challenge.

I have used one of my favourite stamp sets from Newtons, Fox Hollow.

I randomly stamped images from the set onto some Watercolour card using Simons Black ink and then watercolored the whole piece using Mijello Mission Gold Watercolours.

Once it was dry I flicked some dark red paint over it followed by some white acrylic paint and allowed the whole piece to dry.

I then die cut it using Simon’s Wonky Stitched rectangle dies and adhered it to an A2 top folding notecard that I created from Gina K’s Simon exclusive card mix.

I heat embossed the sentiment onto a strip of the same card and added a flag end and added some twine.

Once again I resisted adding any extra embellishments and the card was done.

So now it’s YOUR turn to take out your crafty supplies and join in!
