Simon Says........Let's Get Sentimental


Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

This week our theme is Let's Get Sentimental - make sure you use a sentiment somewhere on your project.  The Design Team are all using products by Tim Holtz, and you can, too, if you'd like, but any sentiment will qualify you for our prize drawing.

I went looking through the store and settled on this sweet one, and I've been singing the tune every time I look at my tag.  It's from Disney's Cinderella, I believe.

supplies: Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil, worn lipstick, picked raspberry, and mustard seed distress inks, overstamped with a Hero Arts Music Background in tea dye distress ink, Tim Holtz/Sizzix Caged Bird die, cherry veneer paper, pink cardstock, embossed, leaf die cuts, Tim Holtz wood stamp Wish Text, Vintage Sepia VersaFine ink, brown pearl for bird's eye, seam binding dyed with worn lipstick distress ink

You can see the same stencil better on my next card:

supplies: Tim Holtz Scribbles stencil, sponged with cracked pistachio and touches of peacock feathers distress inks, Tim Holtz Big Chat stickers and Wplus9's Joy die, white and Doodlebug dolphin cardstocks

This time I used Tim's Big Chat stickers to make up my own sentiment, adding them to a die-cut word.  If you look carefully, you can see that I also used the stencil to emboss the design after I had colored it.

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher


to our amazing Simon Says Stamp Superstore up for grabs for the random winner of this week's challenge!
