Simon Says: Visit the Vintage Challenge!

As many of you know, we have a fantastic new Vintage Challenge blog, aka, Simon Says Stamp & Show. This blog focuses on distressed, grunge, and vintage artwork, like that of Tim Holtz, Wendy Vecchi.

The theme for this week's Stamp & Show Challenge is Distress & Sand! You should enter for a chance to win a $25.00 gift voucher to our Simon Says Stamp Store!

Linda used the Tonic Edge Distresser for those great edges on these tags. She also used the a film countdown stamp from the At the Movies set by none other than Tim Holtz!

Linda used Ornate Plates for the cool frame around "harvest". She also used Metal Game Spinners!

Made by Dan

used the Haunted Mansion Stamp by Tim Holtz. Want some tags like those he used here? Check out Manila Tags by Tim Holtz!

Lynne's creation has awesome texture. If you want similar corner pieces like the ones here, check out Melissa Frances' Sculpture Applique. The sentiment she used comes from Tim Holtz's cling set, Paisley Prints.

Lori used the Ten Seconds Studio molds called Metal Multi Pack #4. She also used Locket Keys by Tim Holtz.

Nancy used Claudine Hellmuth's paint in Sky Blue. She also used Jenni Bowlin papers called Farmers Wife Line.

Made by Nancy W

used the Tim Holtz Sanding Grip and some Creative Scraps & stamps by Crafty Secrets, such as the Halloween Double.

Terry used Timepieces by Tim Holtz for the metal clocks in the top right corner - definitely a set worth getting!

Katie used Crackle Paint in Picket Fence to get that amazing crackle effect. She also used Tim Holtz's Word Sticks (the one that says "hope")!

Kim used the i-top Brad Maker by Imaginisce. She also used Grunge Paper by Tim Holtz - a fantastic medium because you can form it into whatever shape you want!

I urge you to enter the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge! It's a fun way to be creative and have a reason to make something, but you could also possibly win a $25.00 gift voucher to our store!!
