Simon Says … Go DIE crazy



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

Thank you for joining us for the STAMPtember® Stamp It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


you must use at least one die cut on your creation. If you don’t have any dies then you can used punched shapes.

We are showcasing W PLUS 9 PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some 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


I recently picked up this fabulous die set, the WPlus9 Pear Stackers from Simon Says Stamp and thought it would be perfect for an engagement card for my twin sister Susan who announced last week that she and her lovely boyfriend Pete are getting hitched next year! Woohoo!!!  I’m SO excited for them – and for the rest of us – who doesn’t love a good wedding?!!

I know it’s not your typical engagement card but I’m pretty sure she’ll appreciate it – they do make a perfect pair!  I started by sponging some Gold Delicata ink onto a panel of white card and then spritzed it with some Heidi Swapp Gold Lame spray.  I inked the edge of the panel with the gold ink too and stamped and embossed the sentiment in Ranger Gold ep.  I die cut the two larger pears and sponged on some Spun Sugar and Mowed Lawn Distress ink.  For the mottled effect I spritzed on some water and a few spots of the gold spray.  To finish off I added a bundle of gold thread underneath the pears and added some sequins for added bling!
