Simon Says Stamp & Show: A Word!

If there was any time that was good to join in the Simon Says Stamp & Show - it's now! The theme this week is Stamp & Show a Word - how easy is that since most of us use sentiments and sayings anyway?

Here is what the Simon Says Stamp & Show Design Team made:

Made by Dan! Dan used Classic Teal paint by Claudine Hellmuth - easily one of my favorite colors! He also used the Winged Things 2 and Steampunk Stamp sets by Tim Holtz!

Made by Lynne Forsythe! Lynne used the Mini Bird Cage Die from Tim Holtz Sizzix. She also used the Fabulous Flourish stamp by Hero Arts.

Made by Candy Colwell! Candy used awesome Ideaology pieces by Tim Holtz - Film Strip Ribbon and Game Spinners, to name two. She used Lille papers by 7 Gypsies, too!

Made by Nancy Crissinger!
Nancy's piece has such pretty colors, don't you think? She created this using an 8 x 8 canvas, Lille Tags and Mini Vintage Ephemera by 7 Gypsies. A tip for warming the colors of any piece you're working on - blend on some Mustard Seed Distress Ink!

Made by Sarah Engels-Greer! Sarah used Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts - in particular: Dress Forms and Leaves. She used the Celestial Art Stamp set (also by Wendy Vecchi). For more about what she used, click her name to visit her blog!

Made by Nancy Wethington! Nancy used papers from Pink Paislee's Daily Junque pack - gorgeous! Like the postmarks in the bottom right corner? They're from the Curtain Call 2 stamp set by Graphic 45.

Made by Lori Hassler! Lori's tag is so fun and bright! She used the Hope die by Tim Holtz Sizzix. She also used Wendy Vecchi's Art Parts - Flower & Stem. Need ribbon or lace?

Made by Terry!
Terry used lace by Hero Arts, Curio papers by Basic Grey, and the Fleur de Lis Punch by EK Success! Love how she colored this? She used Distress Inks by Tim Holtz!

Made by Linda Coughlin! Linda made this cool patriotic piece using: the Lost & Found Paper Stash, Journaling Tickets, Kraft Glassine Paper by Tim Holtz. Need glittery chipboard stars? Try these shapes by Melissa Frances!

Made by Linda Elbourne! Linda made a gorgeous box book! She used Wendy Vecchi stamps, the Gold Paint Dabber, and Red Pearls.
