{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Animal Antics

Welcome to the third Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in April! This week's challenge is Animal Antics which means you need to include an animal on your project. The design team is featuring Stampendous products. You don't have to use it but we'd love to see some if you have it.

I made an Easter/love/friendship card using the Impression Obsession Bunny Set and added Stampendous Fuzzy Fun Flock to their tails. I used pearlescent embossing paste and the Mini Art Deco Leaves stencil on part of the card base.

While that was drying, I created the little scene with coloured cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I die cut the water/grass panels using the Borders 1 dies from Paper Smooches. The shadows and speech bubble die are also by Paper Smooches. The sentiment and heart bubbles are from Everyday Greetings by Mama Elephant.

One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!

It could be you!

I hope you will play along with us this week!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)

{Paper Smooches} Magnetic Scene Card with Deco Bag + Video!

Sure, the Deco Bag die is sized perfectly for holding gift cards but how about a collection of your favourite Paper Smooches animals and characters? Yes, please! ;)

Not only does my son's three favourite stuffies appear on this card, he appears in this video and for significantly longer than the last time! I nearly  melted as he explains how he was inspired by my Valentine's Day gift tags. I was, in turn, inspired by his adorable magnetic hamster family.

Here are a few stills of scenes created with this magnetic scene card kit:

My husband was on his way to bed when he saw this. He wanted to try it out but was afraid he'd never get to bed. LOL! I can't wait to make more. Imagine these scenes in a frame for your desk or shadow box for the wall, and customized for specific occasions. The possibilities are really endless.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
