Simon Says...STAMP-TEMBER Blog Hop....Holiday Wishes!

Good afternoon crafty peeps....well, I am back again, this time to share my Simon Says STAMP-TEMBER blog hop challenge card! WOW!!! what a blog hop that was!!!! Phew, I am exhausted (but in a good way, smile) from hopping around to all blogs and from seeing all the detailed work, creativity and care that the Simon Says Challenge DT and the Simon Says Stamp & Show DT put into all their creations! Absolutely Stunning creations!!!


Well, then I got to work making my card and I thought I would use this adorable Tilda that I coloured with my Copics! I thought she would be great for a Christmas card...she is blowing you Holiday Wishes, smile!!!! I also used the fabulous sketch by Dawny P over at the Just Magnolia Challenge blog. I did deviate from the design a wee bit but not intentionally. I just went of track from my original plan mid way and well this is what I came up with but I think you can still see Dawny's fabulous sketch in there under all the flowers and bling,lol!


I used BG Eskimo Kisses 6x6 paper pad and Bazzill Basic Bling cardstock and made a6x6 easel card. I did some masking with Tilda and the Magnolia envelope stamp and then used the "Out of the Box" technique and cut Tilda out with my Oal Nesties as I didn't want to cut away all the little sparkles in the image. To embellish I used lots of Prima flowers, one WOC blue Gardenia, lots of bling, Glimmer Mist and Glamor Dust! I used some American Crafts ribbon and the pink ruffle trim is form my BG Teamie and blogging friend, Tara W. The sentiments are Melissa Frances rub-ons (which I just so happen to get at Simon Says Stamp) and the Holiday Wishes sentiment is a Kraftin' Kimmie Sentiment stamp.


Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my Simon Says STAMP-TEMBER Blog hop Challenge card!

I am keeping my fingers crossed...maybe I will get lucky and win the big $100 shopping spree or maybe some of the delish candy the DT have available on their blogs! Why don't you get hopping!

Love your soft colours here - I was punch drunk by the time I'd finished that hop....... Love the way you've used the pale blue flower to highlight the other blues.
