Chris used an image from The Greeting Farm. The pretty blue flower is by Hero Arts and is called Sea Print. The pink flower is from the Pink Bubbles collection by Prima.

Lols used a Stampendous stamp called Changito Grad. The Manila papers she used are by Basic Grey and she distressed the edges using Vintage Photo by Tim Holtz (a tip: use the Ink Blending Tool for easy inking!).

Christine used the Holiday Cheer stamp set by Hero Arts (it's where the snowflakes and house came from). She flocked the house, possibly with Polar White flock by Flower Soft. For the scalloped center circle, she used the Scalloped Circle Large die by Spellbinders.

Heather used a Whiff of Joy stamp called Lizzie with Muff. She used a little bit of Diamond Dust for the snowy parts and the gorgeous pink papers are from Tim Holtz's paper pack, Vintage Shabby.

Marcea used a Whiff of Joy stamp called Melinda with Bouquet. If you want polka dot ribbon, try Polka Dots by Jillibean Soup. I like the brown pearls she used too! They look like Chocolate pearls by Kaiser.

Domi used a Penny Black stamp called Back-Seat Witch. The papers she used remind me of Graphic 45's pack called Halloween in Wonderland. Want a spider brad? Try Spiders by Eyelet Outlet!

Debby used a cute Lili of the Valley stamp called Oh So Girlie. The pretty papers are by Echo Park (one of our newer brands, thanks to Steph!). They're from the pack called A Walk in the Park.

Jane used the Wish Granted Tilda stamp and the Pink Starlit paper by Magnolia. The pearls are likely by Hero Arts and called Medium Accent Pearls.

Jo used gorgeous flowers from Prima called Holiday Poinsettia. I'm excited to announce that she used new Basic Grey papers called Jovial (I am Basic Grey paper-obsessed)!

Jay Jay made that funny little spider by adding googly eyes (like those by LYB) to a pom pom. Want to make Halloweenie flowers? Try Halloween by Prima! I like the gems she used too - they're a lot like Hero Arts' Black Metallic embellishments.

Mandy used the Sneaky Tilda stamp by Magnolia. She also used Magnolia papers from the A Little Yummy in Tummy Paper Pack. Like those roses? Try Love Letter Roses in Rose Quartz.

Mandy is the newest addition to our Simon Says Stamp Design Team - welcome! Honor her by entering the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!! We'd love to see your concoctions! Take a peek at the Vintage Challenge too!
