Stamp It


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

This week the challenge is

Stamp It

i.e. use a stamp, no digi images allowed
STAMPtember® is a very special month on the Simon Says Stamp  calendar and this week we are showcasing some of the latest STAMPtember® products. You may not yet have any of the new products but we would appreciate you using Simon's Exclusive Products if you have them, although it isn't necessary to join in with the challenge.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

The arrival of a new  Simon says Stamp Stamptember Artsy Shapes stamp set came along the same time of an ordered parcel with Simon Says Stamp Encouraging Animals inside. It seemed only right to combine the two.

I have to thank my friend Anna who suggested to use the larger stamps as a banner it really does work a treat with a bit of Doodlebug Twine.

I stamped my cat twice so I could cut out the glasses and I didn't have the dies so I carefully cut the cat with a little border, practice makes perfect or so they say. When everything was in position I used Glossy Accents to make it look like glass in the glasses.

I'm pretty sure a sketch was used to inspire my layout of my card but can't work out whose, could be an old one. But I made a long banner using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banner and used a sentiment that came with the Encouraging Animal stamp set.

The spotty paper came from Lawn Fawn Lets Polka in the dark and I used a bit of red to mat and layer to make it stand out.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
