Simon Says: Stencil It










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

This week we are challenging you to

Stencil It 

There are so many fabulous stencils available right now and there are so many techniques you can use with them. It is fun to ink, spray or use embossing paste, lots of options and the end result is always a little bit unpredictable. It is a fabulous way to create your own backgrounds, or the designs can be the focus of attention. Of course you can always create your own stencils, whatever you decide to do we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!


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

This is Anne's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your projects over the past month. It has been a real pleasure having you along with us!

I decided to decorate another page in my Dylusions Creative Dyary 


A few weeks ago I saw that the lovely Kath had coloured the left side of her diary so I CASE'd her idea ;-) I swiped mini distress inks across the days using Fossilized Amber Festive Berries and Twisted Citron 

I and used FloralBurlapCargo and Dot Fade Layering Stencils to create a fun background. 


I love the Dyan Reaveley products and especially her Cat Among The Pigeons  and Doodle Blooms cling stamp sets, they makes me smile ;-) 


I will link all of the products I used at the bottom ;-)


I love the effect the layering stencils created, to add a little texture I used some yummy Viva Rose Quartz Paste with the Dot Fade stencil



Arty Angle ;-)



Thanks for looking!

A Simon Says Stamp Summer Hello!

Hi all :-) I hope you're all enjoying a fabulous sunshiny weekend! 

I am here to share another card made using the  Simon Says stamp July 'Summer Hello' Card Kit! I love that this kit is so perfect to make little summer 'just because' cards. 

If you saw my post from yesterday you will know that I was playing with making backgrounds using Distress oxide Inks. For this card I used a combination of Spiced Marmalade, Worn Lipstick  and Fossilized Amber Distress Oxide Inks to create this lovely background. 


I smooshed a colour of ink onto a craft sheet, spritzed with water and then dabbed the watercolour paper into the ink. I dried the paper with a heat tool between each layer of ink, this stops the inks from mixing together too much and becoming muddy. 


In the card kit is this fabulous Bikini Die, oh wouldn't it be lovely to be able to wear a bikini like that ;-) haha 

I finished the inside too, a perfect card just to send a friendly 'hello' don't ya think!? 



I know that I say this every month, bit it is true, these kits sell out in a few days. If you would like one, don't hang about, get in there quick ;-)


 Click HERE or on the pic to go directly to the kit :-)


Any money I generate through these affiliate links will be donated in full to the Gozo SPCA 
Please click on the SSS to go to the products I used
Thank You XX
