Simon Says Challenge = New Beginnings!

This week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge is all about New Beginnings! What does this mean? We want to see cards for New things: Babies, homes, pets, jobs, weddings, etc.

Show us what you come up with & join our following, and you might be the lucky winner of a $50.00 gift voucher to our store!

Here's what our Design Team made to help inspire you!

Heather used a very cute House Mouse Stamp called Cozy Shoe - how perfect for a new baby theme! She used a Spellbinders die called Eyelet Circles. Like those pink papers? They are Vintage Shabby by Tim Holtz. Also used: Coffee Archival Ink by Ranger, Creme de Chocolat by Tattered Angels, and Glossy Accents to keep it all together.

Christine has made this card so fun! I like how she snipped grass out of patterned paper (Cosmo Cricket has some strawberry paper in the Garden Variety pack) and to snip, you'll need scissors. The lovely house and sentiment is from the Darcie Heater set called Flourish House.

Lorraine used a House Mouse stamp called Sunflower Smooch. Those papers are from the Pyrus Collection by Basic Grey. She accented the Copic coloring with Star Dust Stickles and punched those pretty hearts with the Lace Heart punch by Martha Stewart.

Chris used a Lili of the Valley stamp called Occasions . (I think) it was colored using Pencils. The orange polka dotted ribbon is a lot like Jillibean Soup's. Need to shop New Baby?

Jo's "Home Sweet Home" letters are a lot like the Chipboard Eclectic Alphabet by The Girls Paperie. The pretty papers are from Prima's Jack & Jill collection. The stamp is by Helz Cuppleditch for Stampavie and is called Home Sweet Home.

Mandy has used the Sleeping Baby Tilda and the Happiness Be Yours stamps by Magnolia. The papers are from the Magnolia Hoppy Easter Paper Pack. If you love that bear charm like I do, I suggest you take a look at I Love Boys - it's a charm set.

Domi used the New England Star paper by Magnolia. The image, by House Mouse, is called Patriotic Wrap. Need red paper? Need buttons?

Debby used the Pregnant Willow stamp by Whiff of Joy. The paper is Marjorlaine by Basic Grey (my favorite!!). The pretty corner detail is a lot like Leaf Corner by Nellie Snellen. I'm loving the embossing on the white paper too - she used Cuttlebug's folder called Textile, and a machine!

Jane, this is beautiful and the fact that Bubbling Tilda is blowing her horn to wake up Sleeping Baby Tilda cracks me up - so true to life! The paper is Princess Crown from the Fairytale paper pack by Magnolia.

Thank you to our Design Team!! Lookin' good!
