Good afternoon lovely peeps!


This week our challenge is 

Happy Birthday!

We are celebrating our 10th birthday

Woo Hoo!! It’s time to PARTY!! and we are inviting all of you to join in with the celebrations!

The design team are featuring

Simon Says Stamp

fabulous own brand products on our cards this week.
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.

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

Today's card features lots of lovely Simon Says Stamp own brand products

I originally die cut lots of the Celebration Time balloons in different pattern papers but changed my mind & used the matching stamp set on one of the balloons & sentiment & blended distress oxides over the smaller balloons. Apologies I must have forgot to check that the matching stamps were available before I used them but there are lots of other birthday stamp sets here

For the background I have blended Tumbled Glass, Broken China & Stormy Sky Distress Oxides over Simon's Triangle Blast Stencil & re positioned it each time I changed colour distress oxide. To embellish I added some Simon Says Stamp Moonshine Sequins & some Simply White Nuvo Crystal Drops.

 Other supplies used -

The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away not one but 10 FABULOUS $50 vouchers to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! 

How AWESOME is that!!! 

 I'm entering my card in the following challenges -
Crafty Creations - anything goes,  Lemon Shortbread - anything goes, Creative Moments  anything goes, The Crafty Addicts - anything goes, Through The Craftroom Door - anything goes,  Crafting From The Heart - anything goes, Get Creative Challenges - anything goes.

My card making mojo was with me on Monday & I actually created 3 cards in one day & this one also fits today's challenge theme of Birthday so here is another!

I die cut Simon's Happy Birthday die out of my coloured background and foam mounted them before popping them back into place for some added dimension.

My card is mounted onto Simon's Fog Gray card stock & I have kept embellishments minimal & just added some Flickering Butterflies & Moonshine sequins.


  1. 2 absolutely GORGEOUS cards Mandy!! Both of them are stunning!! I love the balloons and the stencilled background and the flowers are so pretty,, beauifully done :-)
