Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Happy Mail – Keep Calm and Eat Chocolate

Hello and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp challenge! This week’s theme is all about bringing happiness to a recipient!  Not a specific occasion or reason… Just something that would brighten someones day…. The Design Team is using Technique Tuesday products and I am using this stamp by Teri Anderson. HELLO! As soon as I saw the chocolate set, I knew I had to have it….

DSC_0006wtmkThis little mini set is adorable. I love the chocolate bar and the little Hersey kisses! I wanted to keep the color scheme dark because it reminded me of chocolate, so I pulled out my new and never used Distress Paints and came up with that marbleized looking background. If you would like to see a quick video on how I made this background, let me know….


The wonderfully amazing and sweet Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!

Be sure to head on over the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the design team inspiration and play along with us!!! Be prepared to have your socks blown off because they are all amazing! I am so lucky to be a part of this team! Dream come true.


Thanks so much for stopping by!!!! :)
