It’s Your Day To Shine

Hello again!! It’s time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Fun With Dies

We are showcasing My Favorite Things Products this week.  If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I love working with dies so I loved this challenge. A good die can really make a card shine. I had so much fun putting my cute little vehicle together. The die is called Carpool by MFT. Once I had my vehicle put together, I set it aside.

I used stamps from my stash and I colored them with my copic markers.

I decided to pop up just the trees from my background stamp so since the tree trunks are so thin, I stamped the image on my card base as well so that when popped up, you can see the same image underneath my popped up trees and not just my foam adhesive strips. I hope that makes sense… The grass and trees are all one image but only the trees are dimensional.

I also added dimension to my car. For the sky I used an MFT stencil called Mini Clouds Edge and Salvaged Patina Distress Oxide Ink with a little Peacock Feathers towards the top.

My sentiment is from Simon’s Sentiment Strips Bold Birthday Acetate and I foiled it with Pink Melon to match my bus/van.

I used some Crystal Glaze to add some shine to the heart and the headlights and then I used my Aqua Shimmer Pen to add some sparkle to the steering wheel and also the headlights. How cute are these little mice carpooling? I love them.

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
