Let's Be On TIme!

Hello Monday my friends! Welcome to a new challenge at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - LET'S BE ON TIME! So of course, I immediately thought of not being on time and the story of the White Rabbit always running late.

This is Anita Rao's last week with us, and it has been a pleasure having her as our guest designer. Wishing you the best Anita, and looking forward to your creative makes! 


I started my card by stamping the old letter onto the card front with gray ink.

I used an older Tim Holtz die - Weathered Clock, and cut out a backing from cardboard as well as red metallic paper. I'm using the cardboard for a bit of lift.

I thought the heart from Simon's Chunky Hearts die would be nice at the center of the clock, and go with the White Rabbit theme. 

All colored with Tombow markers and a waterbrush, and fussy cut...

I stamped the saying, then stamped just a part of it (I'm late) and cut it apart to add to the card.


And apparently, the White Rabbit is very late if we compare the times...perhaps an airtight case for being on time, lol!

I hope you are inspired to join us this week with our time challenge! Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $25 shopping voucher to one participant drawn at random. 

A great place to shop!

On A Roll

Hello Monday, my friends! We have a new challenge for you this week at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - WE'RE ON A ROLL, and we are all about wheels.

I decided to focus on this great stamp by Tim Holtz called Fly Fly. I love the image of the man with the balloons on the unicycle (yes, there is my wheel), and make a slimline card.


I started by stamping the image onto watercolor paper.

Then, I started smooshing a lot of colorful layers - swiping the ink pad on the craft sheet, misting it with water, and laying the paper down into it. 

Next smooshed layer...

...and another.

I layered the card onto Simon's peacock teal cardstock, and on to the slimline card. I added a few of my own balloons made with watercolors and watercolor paper. Then, I drew in lines for the balloons. 

Thinking about flying and using your wings, I thought it would be fun to add in a rusty butterfly. I popped in some Glossy Accents in the circles as I used it to glue it down. 

I added a gear to the unicycle, and went around the outside with black to make it bolder. The chip quote "use your wings" fits this perfectly. It will be a great card to send to someone who needs some encouragement to spread their wings. 

...and roll on your wheel!

Now, it's your turn to think about wheels and create a make to share with us. Our generous friends at Simon Says Stamp are offering a $25 shopping voucher to one participant.

A great place to shop!
