COPICS Die Cutting

Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Transport

Hello and welcome to another fun Simon Says Stamp challenge!!!! We’ve got another fun theme in store for you all!!! TRANSPORT!!!!!  That’s pretty much anything. Planes, trains, automobiles, hot air balloons, and ask sweet Lols said, donkeys! LOL!!!!!!! The Design Team is using Basic Grey products this week…..Here is what I created:


The background paper is from Basic Grey’s hopscotch paper pad…. See the tone on tone pink background? That is from the Borders set by Studio Calico. I wanted the white wash look so I applied a heavy coating of Picket Fence distress stain over the top. The grass? That’s distress PAINT. And the balloon has a wonderful coating of Rock Candy dried stickles on it but it’s hard to see in the photo….


I also added a little bit of shading to the balloon using a Copic. I  took my fingernail and distressed the edges of the pink panel….

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!
