Celebrate

Sunday, July 21, 2013

It's Monday!  Today there's a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  This week is special for me because it's my first challenge submission as a design team member and I am so excited!  This week the theme is "Celebrate".   I  celebrated by creating a vintage inspired party hat. 

Creating this was so much fun!  I started with a plain cone, some paint and stamping. I used a Tim Holtz Alterations die to create the crest and wrapped it with crepe paper. That Glitz crepe paper is so fun.  I know it's not a "newer" product, but I fell in love as I was working with it and I wish that I'd purchased it earlier. I'm quite pleased with myself that I was able to use sequins and glitter together in one project.  Bling it on! The fringe ball at the top of the hat was made using Martha Stewart fringe scissors.  The scissors are pretty awesome.  I should use them more often.  We all need a little more fringe in our lives, right? :)   
 
My hat is a lovechild of a Martha Stewart/Tim Holtz product union.  I think that they go together quite well.

Join the celebration at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!  Participate in the "Celebrate" challenge this week and you could be the lucky winner of our weekly random drawing for a $50.00 gift voucher.  We will also chose some of the entries to put in the spotlight and award a special badge too!
