Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Ch586 Anything Goes: Mama Elephant

Hi Everyone!

I am here to introduce a new challenge at the fantastic Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This week's challenge is called: Anything Goes
The team is showcasing products from: Mama Elephant

And this is my take:

I diecut the super adorable buddies from different colored cardstock - Before assebling them I inked the edges anf added some pink cheeks.
When I was done I added magnetic sheets so they stay exactly where you want your bookmarks. These will go in my work calendar to make it cuter and more fun (-:


As you may know, the  Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.

We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together!

Hope to see you there!

You have until next Wednesday at  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in!

I also share my cards and watercolors here:  My Instagram 


Have a great day, hugs, Karin

Simon Says Stamp The Sunny Days Ahead Blog Hop

Hi Everyone!

I am so excited today to be part of the Simon Says Stamp The Sunny Days Ahead blog hop. It is such an Amazing and fun release but I must start by pointing out that my Projects are made with previously released Products (postal service is not as reliable as it used to be and my new things are not here yet) If you want to view the full release click  HERE

First out I want to share two Mother's day cards:

I also share my cards and watercolors here:  My Instagram 

I stamped the Beautiful flowers from LOOK-FOR-THE-RAINBOWS with distress ink on watercolorpaper and then colored them using Daniel Smith watercolors. I then trimmed them and atached them to my polka dot embossed panel and cardbase.

For my second card I used the Beautiful FOLK-DANCE-Wafer-Dies to create my card panel. I adhered it to my cardbase Before ataching a distressinked DECO-HEART OUTLINE-CLUSTERED-LEAVES and the Lovely I-LOVE-YOU-Wafer-Dies. For both my cards the MOM-AND-DAD die was perfect for diecutting my mum. Word. 

Last but not least I wanted to share a card that is perfect to send someone you love, but have not had the chance to see in person for a long time. For me it would be my mum who is 75 so in a way this is also a Mother's Day card this year, but a card that can be sent all year round. 

I used the Beautiful THANKFUL-FLOWERS , stamed them on watercolor paper but this time I used my copics for coloring.
