Best of 2013: Simon Says Stamp + stamp out the year challenge

First off, I want to take a quick minute and name Simon Says Stamp as one of my “best of 2013” craft companies. Not only do they have fantastic customer service and an unmatched product selection, but they also now have monthly kits and exclusive products from amazing designers too! It has been my honor working with them for the past 18 months – and I hope to work with them for many years to come!

I took a two week break from the challenges due to health issues – but you know I had to pop back in and “stamp out” 2013 with the Monday Challenge blog team!!


supplies used:

This card was super fun to make! Stamping, coloring, and of course stickles for glittering! I used two favorite stamps as well as two favorite stamp techniques: embossing with white powder and stamping + coloring with distress markers.


50dollar_voucher_600px Simon is, as always, offering a generous $50 voucher that will be randomly drawn from the eligible entries each week. Join us in stamping a project this week – and for your chance to win a $50 voucher you should hop on over and join in the challenge here.
