Simon? Stamping? What's Your Favorite "S" Word?

Happy Monday!
Here we are in another new week with a fabulous new challenge, if I do say so myself!  This week's Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge is brought to you by the letter S!  So, Simon Says Stamp & Show S!  (try to say that five times fast!)  This week's challenge prize is a $50.00 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp, plus you'll get to spend some time in a fabulous crafting community!  : ) 
Here is what 3 of our Stamp & Show design team members made for the challenge!  If you'd like to see more, stop by the blog and click the person's name or card to see all of the details and leave these wonderful people some comments!  : )  

Made by Tracy Evans
Tracy had this to say: The first thing that came to mind was bird song when I thought of the letter 'S' and of course stamping, being a rubber stamper it was the obvious choice. Hero Arts Timely Bird is my focal image showcased in a dimensional arch cut using the Arch Frame die and the coordinating Sized Arch die to create the frames. My colouring medium this week was PaperArtsy Mermaid Fresco Finish Paint. I also added some stenciled leaves using Wendy Vecchi's Lovely Leaves stencil along with White Embossing Paste.





Suzanne had this to say:  I love using my Distress Stains and wanted to create a big splash with the challenge this week.  I inked up with Ranger Distress Stains - Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and Mustard Seed on a craft mat and added the water to make it a lovely mix of colors.  I smeared my tag into the inks.  I continued on to add layers of images and embellishments including Hero Arts - Silhouette Fern, Hero Arts - Papillion, Stampers Anonymous - Attic Treasures, and Tim Holtz Idea-ology Timepieces.





Made by Sandra Mouwen
Sandra had this to say: I'm the kind of person that writes everything I have to do onto little notes. I wanted to make something that would be very useful in getting myself a bit more organized. So the S... stands for Schedule and I came up with this book to keep my schedule in. The base is from Chipboard and cut it to the right size I wanted. I covered it with Neenah Dessert Storm cardstock and  started stamping with lots of different stamps, such as Bo Bunny Distressed Textures, Tim Holtz City Central and Prima Marketing Romance Novel 2, to make a background. To decorate the front cover I used  the Mini Rosette die, with I stamped with the Mixed Media stamp. I stacked a lot of things to make it more interesting, like the Washer Border, the Stacked Artful Words and a Jumbo Number.
