Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Inspiration Photo

Hi there everyone! Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Challenge! This week’s theme is based on an inspiration photo! I love inspiration photos because you can interpret them any way you want! The design team used Basic Gray products this week! I absolutely love the Basic Grey/Hero Arts collaboration stamps… They are so much fun. Here is what I created:

I heat embossed the adorable Painted People background stamp in silver and then colored it some of the areas using some Prisma Pencils!

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!!!! :)
