Simon Says...who has a SWEET TOOTH???


This week, our challenge for you is  SWEET TOOTH!!!!

(so anything to do with cookies, cakes, cupcakes, candy, chocolate, etc.!!!!)

BRING OUT the inner SWEET TOOTH in your creations!!!!!

ALSO, this week, the DT are showcasing
FABER-CASTELL products from the store!  LOTS of amazing products to play with, so go take a peek!!!!

Here is my card for this week:

I have used the  Hero Arts Cupcake stamp set for my main image and sentiment but the GREATEST part about this card is the background paper.  For that I used  Faber Castell Gelatos - blue & green.  I had never used these before, and had NO idea how to use them or what to do with them! They look like little lipstick cute!  SO I found some You Tube videos and watched them, read some blogs and set off to work at something for this challenge!  A challenge it WAS!!!

Basically what I did was take the green & blue gelato sticks and rubbed them onto white cardstock. I spritzed some water on it, then used my finger to smear it around to mix the colours together.  I did this a few more times until I got the effect I liked. Once it dried, I spritzed it with Glimmer Mist (Pixie Dust) to give it a shimmer.  I WISH you could see it in real life, it is really pretty!!!!

 IT was REALLY fun and really cool! I was sad that I only had 2 colours, but it was fun to play!  I immediately proceeded to Simon Says Stamp Superstore & ordered a BUNCH more Gelatos to play with!!!!!  Can't wait till they get here!!!! 

Now...... head to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to check out all the gorgeous creations from our FANTABULOUS Design Team!!!!
