I think I found another challenge not to my taste although a couple of team-mates have given me a couple of ideas and no doubt a craft spend.
Meanwhile I settle of my secret message card that I got the tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers Surprise Pop Up card.

So I finally got round to using this fabulous Lawn Fawn Mushroom House die and yes I cut out the roof twic once with red and once with white so I can pop in the white spots in the recess. Just the OCD part of me I'm afraid. You can also buy the Mushroom Border but decided I was pushing my luck to work that into the tutorial.

I also used the Lawn Fawn Spring Fling for the patterned paper. All the remained was the sentiment which I used Simon says Stamp Home Sweet Home.

Poinsettia Background


So I had to buy some goodies from the Stamptember release from Simon say Stamp and the Poinsettia Background Stamp was one I definitely wanted and it didn't take too long before it had flew across the Atlantic.

So I decided to start simply with just the background stamped and embossed in gold embossing powder.

Rather than stamp a sentiment I used this die Happy Christmas Shadow die and keeping with the red and gold.

Now I need to decide whether to triple layer the mats and add Holly using Simon says Stamp Holly Fanfare die or to do neither.

Birthday Panda


I was in two minds whether to post a cute panda card or a Christmas card, you can see the cut Panda won. I've use the sweet Panda image from Simon says Stamp Party Like a Panda I love those Happy Balloons.

I used the Splitcoast Stampers SC763 but you can see I make a mistake when I cut out the panel, didn't effect where I put my panda but can't really say I followed the sketch!


The papers are Doodlebug that came with the Simon says Stamp Card kit which is where my stamp set came originally. Seeing as the paper is busy I just used Simon says Stamp Tiny Words Birthday stamp inside a Simon says Stamp Stitched Banners

Mona


I love this cutie from Mo Digital Pencil, she is called Mona. I used the SplitcoastStamper Card Sketch SC765 for my layout.

The papers are of course Doodlebug their Spring ones from this year. The flowers are an old MFT die and the insides are Stitched Snowflakes from Simon says Stamp. The Birthday sentiment is again Simon say Stamp Tiny Words Birthday.

Just a quick post from me today had to have an early start today.

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us last week and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is Bring on the bling
We are showcasing Stamping Bella this week, which just so happens to be Simon says Stamp Brand of the Month. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.
The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the challenge Blog.

So I came back from my few days away and my first job was to make my Simon says Stamp Wednesday Challenge card. Thankfully Stamping Bella Stephanie Loves Ballet was still in stock and I didn't have much time so I decided to paper piece her ballet dress.

I cut her out leaving a white border but if I had decided on using the Simon says Stamp Quilted Hearts background stamp, I didn't really need too. The papers by the way are Simple Stories Hello.

Ok I know I cheated by cutting off the stems of my Cosmo Stem flower heads and then cut it out again with some Glitter Card to give my card a bit of bling. Finally I needed a sentiment originally I was going to use glitter card but it didn't stand out well enough in the white so that why I used the Simon says Stamp Happy Birthday die with the matching cardstock.

We went away the morning of the 1st September so I quickly went online to get some Stamptember goodies and they arrived when I got home.

Challenge


Oops I forgot to write the post for this card which is for Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge. I obviously thought I would be up for writing the post on Friday, we came back on Thursday from a few days away and I went swimming Friday Morning and then went to the Queens Award Volutary Service Award to Friday Swimmers the group I swim with. Hubby is one of the Volunteers who received a paperweight and pin badge. The group was started 52 years ago and we still have a Member who started it now in her ninety.

Back to my card I used the sweet Tolo image in the challenge colours. The papers are some download papers I've had for a while but matched the colours. I used a scallop die to finish the edge between the two different papers.

The sentiment is from Simon says Stamp Sketched Flowers stamp set and the toadstools are a Poppy Stamps die.

Piggy


I had to very quickly make a card because I didn't realise the new Digital Too challenge doesn't start till Saturday, so there will be two Mo Manning makes this week.

I've used Mo's Hello Pig and even Mo showed him with his clothes as if he had been paper pieced so I had to actually make him with scraps of pattern paper.

I made a little scene using the same things as Monday Dinosaur card. The MFT Piggy Pebbles had the perfect sentiment and I used MFT Stitched Banners but I can't find a link to them so not sure where I picked them up from.
