For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show and The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER hop and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays.
To help celebrate we will be giving a BIG BASKET OF CRAFTING GOODIES to the winner of this hop! PLUS 3 $25 VOUCHERS to the Simon Says Stamp Store ! The vouchers will be the hidden treasure on 3 DT blogs and you have to find them.
The Blog hop starts today August 31st, 2011 on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog
and will finish on September 5th, 2011 at on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Blog.
The theme for both challenges this week will be ANYTHING GOES. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!
You will need to hop through each blog, find the little parcel of goodies and make a note on which designer’s blog you found them. You do not HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs but we would appreciate any comments you would like to leave. If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs.
For more details please refer to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge or the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blogs for more details.
If you arrived here from Lols then you are going in the right direction otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.
For the Anything Goes challenge I decided to indulge in my passion for all things Halloween, decorating a configuration box using stamps from Artistic Outpost, Halloween Treats and Apothecary. The configuration box was coloured with Distress Stain Vintage Photo and adorned with some of my vintage finds and stamped images from the Artistic Outpost sets. A crow has been added from Wendy Vecchi's Outdoor Art Parts, coloured with Distress Stain Black Soot to add to that Halloween feel of the whole project. All the stamping has been aged with Distress Ink Vintage Photo.
Grunge Blocks, coloured once again with Distress Stain along with some barbed wire ribbon.
I really enjoyed decorating this piece and indulging in a little Halloween!
From here you need to go to the super talented Christine Ousley for more inspiration.
The last stop on the hop is the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog. You will need to leave a comment there with the names of the 3 blogs with hidden treasure. The comments will be moderated so you will not be able to see the answers.
Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment, enjoy the BLOG HOP. Tracy x
