Simon Says ,,,,, Put a Stamp On It Challenge and Blog Hop!!




Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. Over the past 10 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember ™ event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making,scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog


I use strips of paper and Washi tape to create a background 


Whilst I gave been wandering around commenting I have found how many of you are now doing Christmas cards and thought perhaps I should start - I've started with the adorable Magnolia's  Winter Tilda  and coloured her with Copics.  Her muff and bobbples are are added with Stampendous Fun Flock and the 
Doodlebug Suggar Coating with her ground by Ranger's Perfect Medium.
I used the First Edition - Up, Up and Away  and used them with this and Washi tape  to create the background and manage to show some of it  and not all covered !!!
I use a Martha Stewart Snowflake and  Spellbinder Holly  wish I coated with Colour Box Frost White.
Magnolia Lovely FenceNet Crinoline as a bow and a variety of Flowers mainly 

                                        

We are all giving away a FANTASTIC $25 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore.
