Simon Says … the colour of love

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

The Colour of Love

This week we are showcasing Reverse Confetti Products this week. You don’t have to use them for 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


This week’s challenge is all about love and I just LOVE this combination of stencilled background using the Hearts stencil and a bold, black, graphic sentiment.  I’ve always loved this combo.  The touches of gold add a little drama too – can’t go wrong with a bit of gold I say!!  I used my Clarity brushes with Spun Sugar and Picked Raspberry Distress inks – these are amazing things – if you haven’t tried them I’d highly recommend them!  I was having so much fun I thought I’d carry on and whip up a second card while I was at it!

Avery Elle … Love Puffin

I’m up on the Avery Elle Blog today sharing this card using the cute Love Puffin stamp set.  The Rocky Shores dies are absolutely amazing and pair with this set beautifully.  Such a wee stroke of genius.  I coloured the puffins with Copics and added a little Kraft ink to the edges here and there to soften the colours.


Thanks for stopping by.


Avery Elle… Viking

Sorry I’m posting this a day late – it should’ve gone up yesterday!  My pattern is still totally off since returning from CHA in Anaheim – this jet lag is really something else!!  I can’t say I’m complaining though – I had the BEST time in the world.  Meeting up and getting to know some of my other Avery Elle teamies was just amazing.  Love those girls Jamie, Heather, Karolyn and Katie.

So onto today’s card.  I’ve been playing with the cuter-than-all-get-out Viking set and I LOVE it.  So fun to colour and at only $4 is a must-have!


How adorable is he??  This is a wee 4-bar sized card and I used the smaller Wonky Stitches frame on some woodgrain cardstock for my panel.  He was coloured with Copics then mounted on foam tape.  The hearts were stamped and cut using some red cardstock then I filled them in with a white gel pen.

Thanks for stopping by today.
