Simon says Red & Green...I'm in the Simon Says Stamp Designer Spotlight!!!!
Hello crafty friends! Sorry it's been so long since my last post but I was away at a work conference in London, Ontario! It was good but a lot of sitting and I'm not so good at sitting and pay attention for long periods of time, lol! The highlight of my week away was meeting up with Kraftin' Kimmie on Thursday night and hanging out with her and Andrea and meeting Sheila....so much fun!!!! I also did a little stash shopping too, he, he, he! So with all that, I was just pooped when I got home Friday evening that I just relaxed and took it easy all weekend! I didn't even have the energy to do much stamping...can you believe it,lol!
Well, I am so happy to share this card with you this morning...I just love the Simon Says Stamp on-line store and the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and when Lorraine e-mailed me and asked if I would like to be in the Designer Spotlight I was just so honoured and jumped at the chance! Simon says Stamp Challenge blog has a super fabulous DT...so many of favourite designers on the DT...make sure you check out their creations!
So, the challenge this week at the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog is a colour challenge, Red & Green...what a great opportunity to get a Christmas card or two made! So, that is what I did!
I made my card base 6x6 from Bazzill basics cardstock and used this yummy SEI pp called Christmas Mint. I just love this paper as it has such a great texture and some of the sheets have fancy finishes like foil, pearl and varnish...it is really pretty IRL! I also used the co-ordinating Christmas Mint brads!
I picked this Tilda as I thought she went well with the Nordic styled snowflakes on the paper and because I just love, love, love Tilda! Did you know that you can feed your Magnolia addiction at the Simon Says On-line store, lol!? I coloured Tilda with my Copics and distressed the edges with Metallic Rub-ons. The ribbon and flowers are from my stash! I used lots of pop dots to add dimension!
Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee peek! Now I hope you can join the fun over at Simon Says Stamp challenge! I look forward to seeing all your Red & Green creations!
