Simon Says...............Make it Sparkle !!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
This week the challenge is


We are showcasing Technique Tuesday Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some 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 is the card I made originally but found it impossible to photograph. The weather here has been horrendous storms, torrential rain and for the first day for about 6 weeks I've seen the sun!!!!  I've used acetate many often in the past and decided to make one again  - it needed light (the daylight lamp doesn't use - it shines badly) so I made another card but today found I could photograph this one.
I used the Crafter's Companion Heat Resistant Acetate from our showcased Technique Tuesday Products this week from Happy Butterfly.  The butterflies are coloured with Hero Arts inks with Soft Lilac Purble and Soft Pink Blossom and coated them with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter.  I used the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles.
I used the Simon Says Stamp Fresh Dailies within the Border Grass die.
I used blank images pm the inside to write on a sentiment.

This is the card I created when I found I couldn't photograph the one above.

This is the same Technique Tuesday Happy Butterfly using the same Hero Arts inks with Soft Lilac Purble and Soft Pink Blossom and coated them with Hero Arts Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter
along with the Simon Says Stamp Lavender Cardstock along with Ultra Fine Prisma Glitter along the MFT Flourish.  The papers are from Wild Rose Studio Silverton Studio which is more pinkish IRL.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

While I was finish listing this card I lost me computer line. When I  re-opened it I found this card was completely blank AARRGH!!  I had about 8 minutes to post it - PHEW - I managed most but need to link most details which I will now continue!!  Wow - finished at last!!

A beautiful card!

Pia S said...

They're both lovely. Heather. But the acetate one is extra special, haven't seen many of these before, and it's really refreshing something other than a Christmas card this time of year.
Wishing you a lovely Christmas. Tomorrow is the big day, in Norway Santa arrives after Christmas dinner so all presents will be opened tomorrow, you'll probably have to wait one more night if I'm not mistaken...

Stephanie Leykauf said...

Oh, lovely Heather! Did you intentionally use the pantone colors of the year?! ON TREND!!

Merry Christmas!
Simon Says Stamp!

These are both so pretty, Heather ... I'm particularly taken with the acetate one ... love how it gives that lovely shimmery die cut scene such a wonderful sense of depth! Happy New Year! Anita :)
