simon says stamp/more than one die-transform the world

Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Hello and welcome to this weeks simon says stamp wednesday challenge we are challenging you to more than one die or punch....a super fun challenge! The design team is spotlighting products from memory boxDon't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!



I have used the sweet butterfly dies from memory box for my card, the you get a total of six dies in one package. They vary in size and would look adorable layered. I cut mine out using polka dotted vellum and then added the sweet felt flower to the center. I watercolored the background using the smearing affect, I have shown steps on how to do this here. The sentiment is a pink fresh sticker...luv these and I die cut a couple of leaves in polka dotted paper for a little added summin...*grin*. I hope you have a fantastic day!

mojo monday/mojo489-thinking about you


Welcome, it is time for this weeks mojo monday sketch and I luv it! I have also played along with the card concept challenge, the inspiration photo is gorgeous. I wanted to get iny and go for a mixed media look and still keep a girly look and some glitter. The heart is covered with a glittery spectrum noir pen...sweeeet! I have attached an adorable felt flower, I can't get enough of the felt embellies lately. Have a wonderful week and I hope it is full of creating!

words with meaning - sometimes it ends up different and it is better that way.

simon says stamp/a bit of green-be kind

Be sure to check out the Simon Says Stamp Store!


Hello and welcome to this weeks simon says stamp wednesday challenge we want to see a bit of green. The design team is showcasing products from the fabulous taylored expressions. Don't forgot every week at Simon Says Stamp we give away a $50 voucher...wooohooo....now that is worth playing for!




I had such fun with this weeks challenge and of course green to me runs very close to blues and aquas, so I added a bit of each. I LUV taylored expressions felt....it is by far my favorite felt! I have used a super cute flower die and the awesome felt to embellish the sweet watercolor panel. I used zig clean color brush markers to color in the panel, I didn't color it all in as I wanted it to be a little simpler. I cannot wait to see what you create this week...have fun!

words with meaning - if it costs you your peace it is too expensive.

mojo monday/mojo488-my favorite day


good morning, I am using one of the free verve digis that julee has offered...be sure to look for them on the verve blog from time to time. I have watercolored the gorgoeus blue onto watercolor paper. I printed the digi on light blue card stock, luv the way it looks. I also added ink splatter and twine and of course a few gems. A bit of a cas card for me today, be sure to stop by the mojo makers blogs to see what they have created.

words with meaning - you are always responsible for how you act, no matter how you feel. Remember that.
