Simon Says..........Something New


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

Welcome to the first challenge of the New Year!  Our theme is Something New, and we're showcasing Hero Arts products.  I'm celebrating all the wonderful things about winter with some new (to me) Hero Arts stamps.

supplies: white, dark green, and Simon Surf Blue card stock, Hero Arts Winter Silhouettes clear stamp set, VersaFine onyx black ink, tumbled glass, pine needles, and evergreen bough distress inks, ink blending tool, Simon's Falling Snow stencil, Nuvo Moonstone glimmer paste

This Winter Silhouette stamp set has lots of images of children playing in the snow - I chose only 3 of them, plus one of the trees in the set and made myself a little skating rink in the woods.  

There's nothing more lovely than those big fluffy snowflakes that fall during the winter and that's where this next card came from.  I wanted to capture the feeling of peace I feel when we have a beautiful snowfall that makes the world all bright and fresh again.  And since it's the New Year, I thought that this lovely Hope sentiment was a perfect's new, too!

supplies: white and silver glitter card stock,  Hero Arts Hand Drawn Snowflakes Bold Prints cling, VersaMark and white embossing powder, salty ocean and blueprint sketch distress inks, ink blending tool, Simon Hope diesYour Next Stamp silver glitter gumdrops

Now it's your turn.  As always, we have another $50.00 gift voucher


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