Simon Says..........Going Dotty!

This is my second post for today; if you'd like to see my Guest Design spot for the Paper Sweeties challenge, please scroll down a post, or click HERE.  Thanks!

Happy July!  It's Wednesday, too, and that means a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog!

This week our theme is "Going Dotty!"  Please add something with dots to your creation.  The design team are showcasing Art Impression products this week.  If you have any of their fun products, we'd love to see them, but they're not necessary to enter, as long as you follow our theme.

I had a fun time paper-piecing and playing with a large variety of dotted papers this week:

supplies: Art Impressions Wildly Cute stamp set, BoBunny Soft Shades and Very Vintage Double Dot Designs paper pads, My Favorite Things Die-Namics Chevron Stripes die

I chose this Zoo Baby called Wildly Cute precisely because giraffes have spots/dots.  Then I decided to paper-piece him and use as many dotted papers as I could.

My second card uses a small Easter stamp -  I stamped it on 3 different colors of BoBunny dotted paper, shaded them a bit with colored pencils, then cut out the little birds and arranged them around my large die-cut sentiment:

supplies: Art Impressions Easter Chicks stamp set, BoBunny Soft Shades papers, colored pencils for shading,  Lawn Fawn Let's Polka papers, Lawn Fawn Scripty Hugs die, Winnie & Walter Big Bold Friends ("sending" sentiment)

Now it's your turn!  Our sweet generous Heidi has yet again provided another $50.00 gift voucher

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
