Simon Says … Something New


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

Thank you for joining us for the Party Challenge and we would like to wish you a Very Happy New Year!

This week the challenge is


We are showcasing Wplus9 Products this week. You don’t have to use them to join in with 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


As this goes live I will (hopefully) be somewhere over the Atlantic on my way to CHA!  I have been looking forward to this day for MONTHS and will have lots of photos to share whilst I’m there.  Make sure you’re following me on Facebook and Periscope (Glittermesilly) if you fancy catching any of the gossip!!

For my card this week I’ve paired (geddit??) a gorgeous sentiment from the recently released So Very Merry stamp set with the gorgeous WPlus9 Pear Stackers (LOVE this little set of dies).  Of COURSE I managed to add some foiling into the design this time making use of the Heidi Swapp Toner Pen (I ran it around the edge of my mat and on the leaf and stalk of the pen) before running it through the Minc with gold foil.  I spritzed the panel with Heidi Swapp Gold Lame spray and added some onto the pear (which I coloured with Distress Inks in Crushed Olive and Worn Lipstick).  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark before embossing it in Gold and finishing off with some thread and a few strategically placed sequins!

New Something
