Challenge: Numbers

This week at Simon Says Stamp & Show team member Dan came up with a challenge to use “numbers”. Well imagine my delight when I realized I actually have LOADS of products that fit the bill! Visit the blog to see all of the other creations and to enter. This week’s prize (as always) is a $50 voucher to Simon Says Stamp! The winner is randomly drawn – you can enter by posting to your blog, flickr, or other site too. See the blog for entry details and rules as ususal.

So, what did I make? I got out my numbers stencil + flower and bird stamps (with numbers!) from the Dylusions line and got busy playing!


1) use dylusions mist + brayer to create background of tag.

2. On Specialty stamping paper, use archival ink in black to stamp flowers and birds. Color with dylusions ink (using paintbrush or water brush) and let dry. Then cut out.

3. Stamp (with archival ink) the swirls onto the bottom of tag.

4. Assemble tag! Adhere flowers, bird, and stickers to the tag and prepare to attach to a gift, add to a card, or otherwise brighten someone’s day with it.


I absolutely love the results – and I hope you do too!
