Simon Says Stamp 'September Card Kit'

Hi, were you lucky enough to see the eclipse yesterday? I was watching it on TV and even there  it was pretty awesome, I am sure it would have been a fabulous experience to see it and get the whole atmosphere IRL! :-)

My Simon Says Stamp September 'Best Birthday' Card Kit has arrived!! Woo Hoo!!
It is so pretty! I love the Jillibean Soup  Shaker Tags, makes life so much easier!! I will definitely be buying extras of these :-)


I splattered the front of the tag with Dusty Concord Distress Spray and then stamped the hearts across the bottom using a Simon's Lavender Ink Pad



artsy angle ;-)


and I finished the inside. I cut the back off one of the other tags to do this, so now I definitely do need to buy more ;-)



thanks for looking! 

and this is the kit, CLICK HERE or on the pic for more details

Simon Says: ATC's on the Monday Challenge










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

We also have a special challenge for children between the ages of 2 and 16! CLICK HERE or on the logo to go directly to the challenge page



This week we are challenging you to
Make An Artist Trading Card 
Artist trading cards (ATCs) are miniature pieces of art that are traded around the world. The only official rule for ATCs is the size: 2.5" x 3.5".

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

Don't forget to pop by to see what Simona and the rest of the DT have made, awesome eye candy!! ;-)

I made a set of ATC's using a selection of the new Tim Holtz  Distress Oxide Inks and a new Simon Says Stamp 'You're A Star' Craft Die

I started by pieces of watercolour paper into Salty Ocean, Black Soot and Seedless Preserves Distress Oxide Ink and when they were dry I sewed around the edges.


next came the fiddly bits. I die cut the 'You're A Star' out of the middle. I then used a Falling Star Stencil, white embossing paste and a sprinkling of glitter over the top


I then die cut again using black yardstick and popped all of the pieces in. I made 12 of these so after about 5 I was wishing that I had just glued the sentiment onto the top ;-)


I used silver and white glitter for the stars, very sparkly irl ;-)


and I added a few silver star sequins 



Thanks for looking! I hope you will all join in and have as much fun as we did making these little arty miniatures :-)

So now it's YOUR turn to get creating!
