Simon Say's 'You've Got The Edge'










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

You've Got The Edge 
We would like you to focus on the edges of your creation and add some interest to them, You could use die cut borders, distressing, embossing, inking, stitching or any other way to draw your eye to the edges of your project. we will be looking forward to seeing how you interpret this challenge!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store


Please pop by to see what our fabulous guest Cathie aka Beulah Bee has made for us!! GORGEOUS! 


I made a card using a Paper Artsy Zinski Art 06 and Zini 01 Mini Rubber Stamp Sets to make a whimsical card. She replicated the zig-zag design on the stamps in the stitching and then used a Paper Distresser to create more interest along the edge.


Isn't she FAB!! Little Zini!!  I really love these cute and whimsical stamps, AWESOME :-)


I used a Dot Fade Stencil and Broken China Oxide Ink for the background and then stamped some script using a Simon's Exclusive Fog Ink Pad to create a subtle effect. 

I finished the inside to coordinate with the front and used a Darkroom Door Alphabet Medley stamp set. I love the grungy look of this set!! My FAVE! :-)

Simon Says 'We're Seeing Stars'




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

We're Seeing Stars 

This week we are showcasing My Favorite Things Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge 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

Please pop over to see what our fabulous and super talented guest Karin has made for us this week! It is Out Of This World!! ;-) 

I sort of got carried away with these super cute  Purr-Fect Friends Stamps  and papers and almost forgot the theme but a roll of starry washi tape came to the rescue ;-) 



I am not a huge fan of fussy cutting and always prefer to buy Coordinating Dies whenever possible but I did have to cut the paper from a Dots and Stripes Bright Paper Pack  to fit inside the birdcage. 


Now here's where it gets a bit messy, if you are of a funny disposition then shut your eyes before scrolling down, poor ickle birdie ;-)



So now it's YOUR turn to get out your starry supplies and join in!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
