Simon Says … No designer paper.


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

Thank you for joining us for the Die Crazy Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is


you can make your own patterned paper, just no pre printed designs.

We are showcasing TAYLORED EXPRESSIONS 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’m really starting to think about Christmas now – as soon as the schools go back my mind just naturally starts getting festive!  With this in mind I was immediately drawn to the Deck The Halls stamp set from Taylored Expressions.  I love this set – it has some really fun Christmas critters!  I stamped the penguin then masked him off and sponged some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink behind him.  He was coloured with Copics and and had a few blobs of Glossy Accents added to finish off.  This is a VERY CAS card for me – not sure if it’s missing something actually!  Maybe I need to add some sequins?!

    Oh, Caryn, what an adorable card, and I just love this little penguin who is truly excited about Christmas…so “caught” up in the spirt! So glad to see your beautiful card and to find a new friend. I read your bio, and my dad was born just outside of Glasgow. So hello, my bonnie lass from Scotland from one who has descended from there. Hugs, and thanks for visiting me and leaving a lovely comment! Hugs!

  9. Adorable card Caryn! Such a cute image!!
