Simon says … Happy Birthday Simon!


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

Thank you for joining us for the last week’s challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Happy Birthday 

And guess what?  The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is celebrating it’s 8th birthday this week!

To celebrate this week we are showcasing products from Simon Says Stamp.  You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.


So this week, I thought I’d pull out one of my ALL TIME favourite Simon Says Stamp sets – Artful Flowers.  There’s something about the simplicity of the flowers that I just love!  I created a landscape A2 card and used the Tiny Dots stencil with some Avery Elle Lemon Grass pigment ink to give me a subtle texture to the background.  The I stamped several of the flowers in Versamark and heat embossed them in white before using Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers to colour them in.  I created a wee video if you’d like to watch the process!!
