Sunflowers


Found these lost in my list of posts, they're using Simon Says Stamp Summer Flowers. I used Oxides instead of actually colouring with pens or pencils.

The top one I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Squares, a corner punch and finally the sentiment is Simon Says Stamp Birthday Messages.


This time I used Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and Bundle of Stitched Shapes. I actually stamped the background with Simon Says Stamp Good Reading Background stamp but using a torn bit of paper so it doesn't stamp across the whole rectangle, also I used the second impression because I didn't want it to stand out.

I used the Lawn Fawn Belated Birthday set to stamp my belated but the birthday sentiment is Simon Says Stamp Best Hugs.

Lets Pretend


Can't believe how grown up this little lad is now, I really need to scrapbook faster if I'm ever to catch up. Apologies for a crooked photo but 12 inch layouts are even more difficult to photo than small cards!

The papers are from the Goodie bag from the Scrap Cafe Retreat not sure which retreat. The cutley die is either Paper Smooches or Avery Elle. I really must source a cupcake die I'm pretty sure this is one of Scrap Cafe dies that I've used.

I'm going to an All Day Crop on Saturday but it looks like I will be making Christmas Cards. I've printed some samples from Pinterest and will then be able to work out what to take. I'm pretty sure if I gathered up all my Christmas stuff it won't fit in the car!

Chill


Its nice to have a break from assembly line Christmas Cards and use some of my favourite Mo Manning images. This little cutie is called Chill and I used my favourite make of papers Doodlebug.

The scallop border is Lawn Fawn and the frame round my image is MFT. The snowflakes are Simon Says Stamp along with teeny tiny ones from Lawn Fawn.

To finish a bit of ribbon and I can fit into normal post bow. The fluffy edges on her hat and coat is a mixture of flower soft and fun flock. Her icy breath is some glossy accents and a lot of glitter.

wed-newchallenge-header

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

I'm working a few weeks in advance in order to free up some time for assembly Christmas Cards so apologise for any sold outs on Simon Says Stamp.

So to start my cute furry friend is obviously Ornamental Newton Stamp and I also have the die which I have used but to be honest I could have easily just stamped on the white. But it will be useful if I decide to use him again and put him on patterned paper.

Now I love non traditional colours and this pattern paper pad from Pink and Main called Frosty was crying out my name. I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Oval to cut out the centre but you easily used any shape.

I think I brought the Believe die and Stamp set early this year too late for my Christmas cards, so I'm loving using it on everything! The sentiments are brilliant used it on a Scrapbook layout as well this year.

The Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips are MFT, I actually cut this out first then stamped the sentiment using the Tim Holtz Stamp Platform. I do have a Misti but I only have a tiny workspace that I have to clear to open the side/top but the stamp platform the front comes off and I can stamp using the space I actually work on no clearing up the mess I make. To be honest what sold it to me was a Scrapbooking telling me I can use it on 12 or 8 inch cardstock!

Right back to the card my Bauble is another Simon Says Stamp die called Lulu and I used their Pine Needles die well I had some already cut from my Christmas Card assembly line.



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

Believe


Here's the card inspired by my Rejoice one for Snow White Simon Says Stamp Wedneday Challenge and I had a assembly line going to make another six cards.

This time I decided on only having two poinsettias one I think it works. The only difference is I used the Believe die and stamp set.

Need a lot more Christmas card to be made, I think I may have to buy some!!!!

Water Play


Ok they are pretty awful photos but the story and the my nephew's cheeky face is worth Scrapping. I hope it shows up better if you click on it.

I have a bag odd's and sods left from 3 packets of Echo Park boy papers and stickers which I have used. The paper that looks like wood and the green are other odds that worked with them.
I wanted a big letters so I cut them on the Cricut.

While doing this from a sketch I found on Pinterest I realised I made something similar. I had a real job to find it and in the end I copied it from my Scrapbooking on Pinterest because I couldn't find it on my Scrapbooking Blog All in One Place.


Inspired from MJ layout

Sizzix Robin


Sorry for the yellowy white card having real problems photo white cards which is a pain since I love white cards a lot.

While I was smooching on Amazon I saw this robin and decided he could be useful well 6 cards useful. He was a bit fiddly to assembly especially as I decided to ink round the die cuts to make him more life like.

The Holly and Mistletoe swirl is Cheery Lynn, I think and my sentiment is a clear LOTV. I dotted his eye with a white pen and I played with my corner punch to make a bit more interest in what is a plain card.
