Simon Says … Shake It Up


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

Thank you for joining us for the One Layer Challenge and we hope you will join in with our new theme!

This week the challenge is

Shake It Up

For this challenge we would like to see some shaker style creations, you can shake some ink sprays and give your projects a spritz or use an action wobble to make something shake! Whatever you decide to shake we will be looking forward to seeing it!

We are showcasing WE R MEMORY KEEPERS 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


I’m going all gold-tastic this week and it all started with the acetate pad from We R Memory Keepers!  Whilst I was perusing the Simon Says Stamp store looking for something fun for this challenge I stumbled across this 6×6 pad of acetate – it has 4 different patterns (stripes, spots, leopard print and dotty chevrons) in gold, silver and black and it’s AHHHH-MAZING!  My first thought was to use the acetate for the window on a shaker card but then I decided I’d used it as a layer on my card instead.  I made a 4 1/4x x 5″ card from Neenah Solar White 110lb card and cut a piece of the gold spotty acetate to the same width (i didn’t trim anything off the length).  I then scored this at the top and folded it over adhering it just on the back so it hangs sort of loose on the front (if that makes sense??).   My window is just made from vellum using the stitched circles as a frame na d filled it with confetti from this months (Feb) SSS Card Kit.  I die cut the Sending die from gold glitter card and used the sentiment from the co-ordinating stamp set embossed in gold.

Shake it up
