winnie & walter Share the Love Week Featuring: Simon Says Stamp Day 5


Today is the last day of our winnie & walter share the love week featuring: Simon Says Stamp. I love both companies and it has been so much fun to combine them! Our last challenge is a sketch challenge.

Love it! This is my take on it:


On today's card, I used these together:
I started with a panel of watercolor paper. I love to use this kind of paper with Distress Inks, because I think they blend better on it. After I had placed my Simon Says Stamp Extra Large Dots stencil over it, I used an ink blending tool and applied Peacock Feathers Distress ink to create a gradient look. Then I removed the stencil and stamped some chevrons from the winnie & walter set Scenery: V for cheVron and sequins from Scenery: Big Bang Bling. My sentiment was die-cut from black card stock. After adhering it, I layered my papers and finished the card off with the gold star sequins. I hope you like it! And I hope you have enjoyed our share the love week. I did! Now check out the winnie & walter blog to see what the other girls did and to leave a comment for your chance to win a lovely prize! Thank you so much for visiting! I'll be back later today with our big winnie & walter August release. Don't miss it!

winnie & walter Share the Love Week Featuring: Simon Says Stamp Day 4


It's the 4th day of the winnie & walter share the love week featuring: Simon Says Stamp. Today's challenge is to create a one-layer card. Inspired by the lovely sunflowers in our garden, I created this:


This time, I used these products together:

This Simon Says Stamp Scribble Flowers set is so versatile and fun! You can create all types of flowers with it and it's easy to "color" them. I just stamped the outlines with black ink and used the solids to stamp the colors. For the petals, I used yellow Distress Ink first and added a second layer of light orange Distress Ink for some shadows. No coloring, just simple stamping. After the flower was finished, I added light blue details to the background, using a few of the smaller stamps. Then I stamped my sentiment, a combination of winnie & walter's The Big, the Bold and Seasons and The Big, the Bold, and the Happy. Little embellishments are allowed on one-layer cards, so I added some sequins in the end. I hope you like my card! Now hop to the winnie & walter blog and leave your comment for your chance to win the prize! And I would love to see your take on the challenge.
Thanks for visiting, don't miss tomorrow's post(s). Wink wink.

Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge Again


So, Alyssa seems to come after me concerning the crafty side. She loves playing with my supplies and the comments on her cards made her so happy. The result is, I am buying a new stamp set and she is the one to ink it up first. Today, she finished three more cards for the Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge. Here they are:



She used the Lawn Fawn admit one stamp set and dies. She did everything on her own, except for the die-cutting because my battered old Cuttlebug is tricky to use. Looking closely at my cards, she realized the use of foam tape, so she used it on some elements of her cards, too...



The last card was made with Lawn Fawn admit one and beep boop birthday. We hope you like the cards! Thanks for stopping by today!
