Simon Says Stamp Challenge...Embossing + Belles 'N Whistles...Sending Sunshine!


Hey Stampin friends! WOW! Everyone made such beautiful cards for the kids in last week's challenge!  Well, it's that time again! Time for a new challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog! This week the challenge is EMBOSSING and the Simon Says DT are featuring Belles 'N Whistles stamps. We would love to see your BnW creations but it is not a requirement of the challenge. 

We have a very generous prize this week, as always, Heidi, has offered up at $50 dollar gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!! I know you won't have any trouble spending the $50 dollars in the Superstore it is full to the brim with gorgeous stamps and crafty supplies. Please join us and you could be the lucky random winner of the $50 gift voucher!


For my card I have used the Belles 'N Whistles stamp called Bronzing Beauty...love her to bits I think she is my fave BnW image. I have coloured her with my Copics and cut the image out with my Oval Nesties. I left the image in the die and inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  I have teamed the image up with BasicGrey Hopscotch 6x6 paper pad. I inked all the edges of my papers with my new favourite ink called Powder Puff chalk ink, Mocha Mama and Amaretto. The flowers are from my stash and I added BasicGrey Hopscotch painted brads to the centres. I also used my Die-namics Little Open Scallop border from My Favorite Things.  I love a crisp white sentiment and so I used Distress Embossing ink and American Crafts Zing White embossing powder to emboss the sentiment which is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, Kimmie's Mermaid Sentiments set

Well, thanks so much for stopping by and having a wee peek at my Simon Says Stamp Challenge card! I really hope you can join us this week! Please pay the Simon Says Stamp DT members a wee visit too and leave them some love! They have made such gorgeous and inspirational cards for you this week, as always!

Have a Stampin' Great Day!

Love the striped central panel & the way it picks out the yellows. The white sentiment really brings the image panel to the eye too - lovely.
