It is all about “I”

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is all about “I”.  Now I already put in an entry to this challenge but I didn’t stop there.  No,  I found another stamp set in the “New” drawer that needed to come out and play.  It was perfect for the challenge as it is a Clearly Besotted stamp set of Travel ICONS.


Supplies:  Clearly Besotted Happy Travels stamp set, Technique Tuesday Geo Tags stamp set, Simon Says Stamp Stitched Circles dies, Hero Arts Ombre inks, Wink of Stella glitter pens, 3M Foam Tape, Basic Grey Kneehigh patterned paper and Scor tape.

The “I” Scream Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

This week on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge, crafters are to take inspiration from the letter “I“.

Instead of sitting “idle” I decided to do something with the word “idol”.  Geez, I can already hear the groans…………..oh well, moving on.

I have chosen to use a Deep Red stamp of my idol, John Wayne.

It  is difficult to decide how to decorate the background of a card with a black and white stamp.  I decided to keep it simple with very little colour, so that the stamp could remain the focal point.



Supplies:  Deep Red John Wayne stamp (aka Rooster Cogburn), Taylored Expressions Wild West stamp set,  Sizzix Polaroid Frame die, Simon Says Stamp Woodgrain cardstock, fun foam, Authentique Genuine patterned paper, unknown metal stars, Recollections card base and Scor tape.
