Simon Says Paper Piece :-) + hidden candy !!

First of all we would like to say a big thank you to all the entrants of last weeks challenge. We do realize that most of Europe has been enjoying a heatwave so it must have been a sacrifice for you to shut yourself in a room to make a card :-) Chris says the weather in Canada is lovely too so global fab weather :-)

I would also like to say a special thanks to all of the fabulous designers over the last few weeks who have been in our 'Designer Spotlight' I am sure you agree they were all tremendous :-)

For this weeks challenge we decided to make it nice and easy for you, :-)


We would like you to cut out a piece of paper and stick it onto your image instead of colouring it ! This is a fabulous technique to know especially if you make a mess of colouring and need to rescue a disaster ( yeah ok it happens to me too :-))

The Design team have made some fabulous cards for you to see and to give you some ideas :-) As an added incentive we have a little mini blog hop for you !! :-) Some of the DT will be giving away blog candy on the card connected with this challenge :-) You need to find them and leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning !!!

Heidi is also giving the usual $25 shopping spree to the Simon Says Stamp Store including shipping to a lucky entrant drawn at random :-)If you have facebook you can become friends with Simon Says Stamp on there too :-) Just look for "Simon Stamps".

Hemos decidido que el reto que os proponemos esta semana sea bonito y fácil a la vez... ¡RECORTE DE PAPEL O DISEÑOS RECORTADOS! El Equipo de Diseño ha realizado varias fabulosas tarjetas para proporcionaros algunas ideas. Además, ciertos miembros del Equipo de Diseño darán en sus blogs "Blog Candy" a través de sus tarjetas para este reto. ¡Sólo tienes que encontrar esas tarjetas y dejar un comentario para lograr una oportunidad de ganar! Y como siempre, Heidi ha donado un vale por 25 dólares de compra en Simon Says Stamp (¡incluídos los gastos de envío!) que irá a parar a una de las participantes en el reto de esta semana. La afortunada será elegida al azar. Además, si eres usuario/a de Facebook puedes añadir como amigo a Simon Says Stamp ¡Buena suerte y feliz recorte!

Heute haben wir wieder eine neues Thema für Euch und zwar PAPER PIECING. Benutzt ein Stück Papier in Eurem Stempelmotiv. Eurer Fantasie ist keine Grenzen gesetzt *g* Einige DT Mitglieder haben heute ein kleines Candy für Euch. Besucht die Blogs und findet heraus, wer ein Candy verbunden mit dieser Challenge hat :-)

E heti kihívásunk témája: " PAPER PIECING" a lényege, hogy az alkotásodon szereplő bélyegző lenyomatot, ff. képet ne csak színezd, hanem papírdarabokkal díszítsd ki! Pl. ha egy szoknyás kislány a bélyegződ, akkor a szoknyáját vágd ki egy papírból és ragaszd rá!
Nekünk ezen a héten van egy kicsi blogszökkelésünk is: látogass el a DT tagok blogjára és rá fogsz találni, hogy kinél/kiknél van Blog Candy ezzel a kihívással kapcsolatban!
A nyeremény ismét egy 25 dolláros utalvány a Simon Says Stamp webáruházban!
Sok sikert és jó alkotást kívánok!







Please add your creations to Mr Linky, we look forward to seeing your creations so get you scissors out !! :-)

Gwen's Busy Little Hands said...

Very cute DT cards. Foregoing the risk of embarrassment to enter with the last LO I made. All stamps were cut and glued as well as added a second layer with a pop dot adhesive for deminsion. I truly hope everyone gets as big a laugh out of my project as I do. Have a great Monday!
