Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes with twine or String

Hi there and Happy Wednesday! Today we bring you another Simon Says Stamp challenge! I adore being on this design team. A great bunch of folks to worth with and Simon is a great company to design for! This is our Anything Goes challenge with a twist! We’d like you to use twine or string on your projects! I will confess, I don’t use either much. I can NOT for the life of me tie a proper bow. The dinky bows I turn out are utter crap… But I gave it a go! The Design Team is showcasing Mama Elephant products this week! I’ve got a few of their stamp sets and all of their inks (which are amazing by the way)….. Today’s card features this adorable stamp set!


As you can see, I tied a tiny twine bow and I will NOT tell you how long it took to tie that little sucker! It is covering up the end of the sentiment by accident, oopsie! The images were colored with Spectrum Noir markers. And the background is misted with some white Mister Huey’s mist! The balloons have a heavy coating of clear wink of stella, which makes this baby sparkle in real life! So pretty!

The amazing peeps over at Simon Says Stamp have an amazing prize to win! A $50 gift certificate to their online store! Be sure to head on over to the challenge blog and check out the rest of the AMAZING creations by the design team. They are so funny and sure to make you laugh!
