COPICS Die Cutting Distress Inks

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: SPORTY/PATRIOTIC

Hi guys! Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp challenge!!! We’ve got a very patriotic challenge in store for you today! With Independence Day just around the corner, the timing couldn’t be more perfect! The team is working with Cuttlebug products today! You guys know I love my cuttlebug die cutting machine!!!  Here’s what I created today, with my husband in my heart and mind as I created this.

I used my new Silhouette Cameo to cut the star shapes and used my Cuttlebug and Swiss Dots embossing folder to create the embossed background. And then lots of Tim Holtz Distress Inks and stickles to finish it off.  The complete supply list is at the end of this post.   The “miss you” is also from the Silhouette (and a free  download if you take The Cut Above the Rest online class)….

The wonderful 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. Be prepared to have your socks blown off!


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