Something New


Hi all and welcome to another year 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 and throughout the coming year too.

This week the challenge is

Something New 

If Santa brought you some new crafty goodies we would love to see them! You could also make something for a New Baby, New Job, New Home, New Life Adventures etc.
We are showcasing our very own Simon's Exclusive Brand Products this week. 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 bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your crafty makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

I was lucky to be sent the Always and Forever stamp set but due to our post having a few delays I didn't receive it till I had already ordered this stamp set and the dies. I had originally made today's card but when the dies arrived I cut out the words and glasses again and layered them over the direct to paper ones
The card below is the first one made and you can tell that having the dies helps the words and glasses pop.

The floral panel is made using Simon says Stamp Sketch Ranunculus and you can just work out I had Yana-ed the flower heads using the Nuvo Shimmer Pen so pleased my camera picked up the shimmer.

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

A very pretty anniversary card Debby and I love the repeat stamping in the background and the fishtail banner with the two glasses is a great design idea. The die cut versions do let the glasses and sentiment stand out better, but both are great. x

Gorgeous card Debby :-) I liked original version but the dies do add an extra special dimenson to the card, so beautifully done :-)
I have ordered the dies to go with the stamp set too, can't wait for them to arrive! :-)

Wishing you a Very Happy New Year, I hope 2019 is a fabulous one for you
