Simon Says Tie It Up

Hi everyone! I am so happy to announce that I will be guest designing over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog this month!


This week’s challenge is to incorporate the use of ribbon or twine into your project. Here is what I came up with… Because we are showcasing Paper Smooches products this week, I chose to use yummy donuts from the Sugar Rush stamp set to create a rainbow of deliciousness! :)


Simon Says Tie It Up_1


I started off by stamping all the donuts onto cardstock; seven total. I then colored each one with Copic markers. The donuts were then fussy cut out, and adhered on top of each other to create a topsy-turvy stack. I also covered the icing of each donut with white dots, Wink of Stella glitter and Glossy Accents.

The background and sentiment for my donuts was stamped using stamps also from the Sugar Rush set, and I colored the sprinkles and background with Copics. The sentiment is heat embossed with clear powder for additional shine and dimension.


Simon Says Tie It Up_2


For some “ground”, I cut a strip of white cardstock and colored it with warm grey Copics. I then attached this to my background panel, and adhered my donuts on top. Finally, I tied some red and white bakers twine around the bottom of the card panel and attached everything to my A2 white card base.

There is a $50 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp online store for the lucky winner of this challenge, so I hope you’ll be joining in on the fun… I cannot wait to see how you “Tie Up” your creations!
