Simon Says Weekly Challenge...and a little scrapbooking

I made this card for the Simon Says weekly challenge.  The challenge this week is making a birthday card showcasing Simon Says exclusive products. I masked off the edges of my card, then sponged in four different distress inks. The sentiment is from Simon Says as are the stars.  I stamped them all in Versamark, then heat embossed them with liquid platinum embossing powder.  Super quick and easy one layer card.


I've also been trying to do a bit of scrapping again lately.  I didn't do any scrapbooking for quite a while, and it's difficult to get back into it...but hopefully, the more I scrap, the easier it'll be!

Last fall, my son asked me to go to the shooting range with him and get in a little target practice.  I knew that we had a gun in the house, but had never shot it.  So...this was definitely a new experience for me!  I was shooting a 38 revolver, and after the first couple of shots (which were made with my eyes closed! LOL!), I finally got the hang of it, and did fairly well as you can see by my target in the top photo. (The target was set out 25 feet).  If you look closely at the photo in the bottom right, you see me ducking...when I fired the first time, I closed my eyes AND ducked!  It was kind of fun...so who know...maybe I'll go again one day!

This is a photo of my daughter and son-in-law taken at my house last summer.  I printed the large dashed circles and the brown splatters onto the 12 x 12 card stock with my large format printer.  I created the smile circle in my Silhouette program and used a 2 inch punch to punch it out.  The hearts are all dies.  The title work "hey, Good Looking" was stamped with a Lawn Fawn alphabet.  Arrow is a Spellbinder die.  Photo corner is a die from MFT.  The film strip and the striped piece are both washi tape.

This card is a tri-fold card that I made after my last Online Card Class.  It was super simple to make.  In the class we were shown how to use dies to make the word pop off the page so that the top fold could be slipped under the word, but I figured out how to do the same thing with the Cameo.  The top of the card was stamped with stamps from WPlus9. I'm not sure what stamp I used for the birthday.  I do love how this card turned out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by for a visit!  Hope you'll come back soon!  Your comments are greatly appreciated! Until next time...

Pin It!
