Simon Says Stamp & Show Ever After!

Happy Monday!
I hope you all had a nice weekend!  We got a bit of snow, here in Ohio.  That just means more time for indoor activities like crafting!  Will you take the challenge this week and enter?  It's totally worth it!  Fun time doing what you love + a great community of other crafters + an opportunity to WIN a $50.00 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp = A-mazing!!  Show us what you can do! Speaking of, here are what three of our Simon Says Stamp & Show design team members made for the Ever After Challenge!  


Made by Tracy Evans!
 
Here's what Tracy had to say:
A new acquisition in the form of the Neverland plate from Artistic Outpost was my inspiration this week. As soon as I saw this stamp set I knew I wanted to frame my images in some way and eventually decided to create a circular aperture using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Standard Circle Large Die. I also wanted to give my card a brighter colour palette especially with using child like fairy tale images and fired brick and wild honey Distress Inks came to the rescue and fitted the whimsical feel perfectly. It was such a refreshing experience to create something a little less grungy than I normally create.




Made by Suzanne Czosek!
Here's what Suzanne had to say:
Ever After promises happy endings, but every happy ending has to travel through a little darkness.  I decided to create the magical mirror in which the Evil Queen peered into and asked the question "Who is the Fairest of All?".  The Daffodil Girl from Stampendous provides the sweet innocence of the princess reflected back to the Evil Queen.  Since it was the Evil Queen's mirror everything was gold and black. Anything white was turned the appropriate shade of black using Tattered Angels Black Magic Glimmer Mist.   The beautiful Prima White Soprano flowers added the perfect detail to the frame.   The touch of gold around the edges is the base coat on the mirror of Stampendous Aged Gold Embossing Enamel.




Made by Sandra Mouwen!
Here's what Sandra had to say:
Don't you just love magic? I really do. All those kind of stories and movies are such a inspiration filled with lots of creativity. Stardust is one of those movies and this tag is inspired by it. I can't stop playing with the metallic stains and creating backgrounds with them. In this case Brushed Pewter in combination with Peacock Feathers and Broken China Stains were used this on the little #5 tagThe little vail contains Golden Embossing Powder, and I really thinks it looks like stardust, don't you?





Thanks for tuning in! Have a fun week!
