Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #349


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the "Make It Sparkle" Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...


 We are free to use any  products this week. Yay!

 I used a celebratory set "Happiest Birthday" from Neat and Tangles. I also turn to Letter Tile for making 2016 sentiment.  

You can create ANY sentiment with this stamp and die! So versatile!

HAPPY 2016
 First, I created a colorful background with Color Shine from Heidi Swapp. By spraying 1-2 spritz of color shine on watercolor paper ( I used Canson), let it dry for a few minutes and you then got yourself a DIY paper.


I  did the white embossing of the confetti image from "Happiest Birthday". The "2016" was stamped on kraft card stock. I then made the die cut and assembled them with sequins and gold strings.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog . If you haven't subscribed by email, you may want to do so you don't miss out.
You have until Wed. 8am Eastern Time to join in :-)
I hope you check out the DT's work!  I can't wait to see what you create!!
This is the LAST challenge for 2015...boy, did I have FUN!! 
Thanks for stopping by!
