Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge | Anything Goes with MFT

Hey lovelies, I hope you're having an awesome week ?

It is Wednesday which means...


This week the challenge is

Anything Goes  

We are showcasing My Favorite Things  Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always the lovely Heidi and team Simon will be giving away a $50 Voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store ! 



For this weeks challenge I decided to use my two favourite MFT products that I own...Cloud Mix-ables Stencil and Blueprints 29 Die set. I have been dying to use the SSS Picture Book Lion so decided to use him for this challenge.

With the Picture Book dies I normally cut them from coloured cardstock, this time i decided to colour each piece with was very fiddly, and I couldn't do as much detail as i normally do with pencils, but i am still really happy with how it looks, and how cute is this lion !


I used some of Simon's Sea Glass cardstock for the background and using the cloud stencil along with Simons White Ink I created the soft white clouds.

I used Neenah Desert Storm card along with Simon's A2 Curved die to create the hill which I heat embossed the sentiment which is from Simon's Best Friends Stamp Set.


I used the stitched rectangle from Blueprints 29 die set to then die cut the whole piece out.

I adhered everything with a mix of tape and foam tape for some dimension.
