Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge | Add Some Texture

Hello my lovelies, I hope you are all having an awesome week ?

It is Wednesday which means....


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Happy Birthday Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Add Some Texture 

We are showcasing Tim Holtz  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 ! 


I had a couple of ideas for this weeks challenge but as I have been really wanting to open my new pot of Distress Glitter I went with this idea.


I used Tattered Rose Oxide ink through a SSS Stencil and then with the stencil still in place I used Ranger Transparent Texture Paste. To this I then added some of the Distress Glitter, I concentrated the glitter in the centre and just let it naturally spread out.


I tried a few different sentiment options but thought this simple hello die from SSS worked best, so i die cut that from some Tonic Rose Gold card.


A fairly simple card, but one with a lot of texture and I'm really happy with how it turned out....the glitter is GORGEOUS.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

  7. Tattered Rose is such a pretty colour, but what you've done with it here - the lovely stencil, the shimmer, the glimmer - elevates it to gorgeous! Your card is a knockout! Stunning!

  8. […] challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Add some texture. I was very inspired by my friend Tracy’s card, where she’s used a stencil and glitter amongst other goodies. You should definitely check it […]
