Back to School


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Add A Sentiment Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

We also have a special challenge for children between the ages of 2 and 16! CLICK HERE or on the logo to go directly to the challenge page


This week the challenge is
Back To School

This week we are showcasing Avery Elle Products. You don't have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

The problem of making cards in advance is remembering what I used so fingers crossed that I remember everything.

I wanted to buy something from Avery Elle that would never go out of date and would work for card making and scrapbooking and for that reason I decided to buy Letter Balloons, I also have the Number balloons so the two will complement each other. They work brilliantly with scraps of card. I added a bit of sticky tape behind the holes at the top of each letter and again using scraps of white card cut the letters again and placed them in the holes.

The balloons stand out amongst the black card and it was only right to used the Simon Says Stamp Thank you Teacher stamp set in keeping with the back school challenge. I stamped with Versamark and used Bright White Opaque from WOW.

My twine is Doodlebug Beetle Black and the sentiment is Impression Obsession die, which I have moved several time and not helped my the dodgy photographer.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join
