In the Middle: A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, April 12, 2015

In the Middle...That's the theme this week for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I chose to interpret the theme by NOT using the middle.Off-centered image. Off-centered tag hole. A fun change of pace to mix up the composition. A fun thing to mark your place in the middle of a book.
How did I get the image that way? I stamped on a book page and glued some of the pieces to the tag. Pretty simple, but I like the effect.
Get in the middle of things. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.


"A is for..." A Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

Sunday, April 5, 2015

It's another alphabet challenge! This week we are inspired by the letter "A" for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. I thought of "Air Mail."

I made some funky postcards with some of the new Prima Stamps. I love the fresh new designs as well as the fact that they are reasonably priced. Only $4.99 each! I applied watercolors directly to the stamp and stamped with them instead of inks. This is a method that is not for the faint of heart. You never know how it's going to turn out.

Pastels

Sunday, March 29, 2015

Pastels! A sure sign that Spring has arrived. This week, we are celebrating the softer side of the color palette for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge.
This week, I used one of my favorite stamps. The envelope liner stamp! Isn't it authentic looking? It adds a fun touch to my handmade envelopes. I also love my watercolors and they're so fun to use with embossing powders.
Embrace the pastels and show us your colors. Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog and your project could win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp We draw a new winner each week. Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our weekly designer spotlight.


One Stamp....Many Ways: A Simon Says Stamp Challenge

Sunday, March 22, 2015

The most wonderful thing about stamping is the endless ways that the stamps can be used. This week, The Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to use one stamp many ways. 
Last Summer I wrote a tutorial on the Simon Says Stamp Blog, entitled: "5 Ways to Inspire Creative Stamping". In this post, I talked about doing many of the same things that I did for this challenge: play with the image. 
One stamp, many ways.


I used the umbrella stamp from the new Simon exclusive Spring release. Mixed media, watercolor, paper piecing...so many possibilities with just one little stamp!
We would like to see what you can do with one stamp. You don't need to create four different examples, like I did. Just have fun!
