Simon Says........Bling it On!


Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week, so appropriate for the Holidays, we're asking you to Bling it On!  The design team are using Kaisercraft products this week.  I chose a paper pad and a stamp set and made 2 cards.

supplies: Kaiser St. Nicholas papers, Simon's Holiday Frames die, pale gold pearls

There are some gorgeous papers in this pad, many of them gold-foiled like my background, but also some beautiful rich vintage designs, like the one with the bells.  I fussy cut around a 2nd piece of paper and popped the bells and holly up for a little added interest.  And a row of gold pearls finishes the card.

For my second card, I used a stamp from Kaiser's Basecoat Christmas set, and made a little 4 1/4" square card with lots of bling!

I embossed the text tree in Ranger's Super Fine Detail Gold embossing powder, then added lots of Simon's Crystal Reflections sequins anywhere that there was a dot or tiny star or snowflake on the design.  The panel was popped above a panel of gold glitter cardstock, then attached to my white card base.  

It's your turn now!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for one lucky random winner of our challenge!
