Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Something New


Hi all and welcome to another year on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week and throughout the coming year too.

This week the challenge is

Something New 

If Santa brought you some new crafty goodies we would love to see them! You could also make something for a New Baby, New Job, New Home, New Life Adventures etc.
We are showcasing our very own Simon's Exclusive Brand 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.

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! 

 Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

So, here's my card for this week. I used  Shimmer Burst Background Dies to make  a Happy New Year card. 

To begin, I pepared a piece of Sea Glass Card stock and ink blended it using Simon Says Stamp Dye Inks Carribbean Blue, High Dive, and Orange Slush. Then I added splatters of white and gold metallic inks. 

I cut a shaker window on the right top of the panel using Shimmer Burst Background Dies and made a shaker using thin double sided foam adhesives.  For shaker elements, I put 3mm Sparkling Clear Sequins, Gold Shimmer Seed Beads, Sparkling Clear Seed Beads and Metallic Gold Sequins.

I then foam mounted Big Happy Diecut and 'new year' from Happy Christmas set. As a final embellishment, I added Midnight Black jewels

So now it’s YOUR turn. 
 Happy Crafting
