Simon says put a stamp on it and read all about it!

Simon says stamp has two super fun challenges this week. One is to use stamps - what else I ask:) and one is to put some words/text out there. Both challenges also include a bit if blog hoping. How much more inspirational can it be?! So after finishing the challenge blog's blog hop I had inspiration bursting out my fingers, so I decided to make more - LOL!

This was made in minutes, excluding all the fussy cutting. I'm the slowest cutter ever!
The inspiration as probably many of you can see is Teresa Collins vintage finds. When I saw bluemoons scrapbooking showing this collection I new I wanted all of it.

Except from the background, that is TH papillon, the stamps are from Vintage finds set #1 and #2. The ink used is tsukineko memento dye in Toffee crunch - love this colour! Thank you bluemoon:)

As the DT of SSS had used washi tape on most of their cards, I did not want to be left behind and also used some of the tape from TC.I also heat embossed the vintage clocks in copper. The background itself has plenty of different script, as does the damask, but I also stamped words from the set in archival ink coffee. This turned out so well, I had to finish the inside, just to be able to stamp some more:)

Well, have I used all the inspiration yet? Not even close! And it's not even noon - I have a feeling of this is becoming a very creative weekend - LOL!!!

I also has some super exciting news!!
I have been paper crafting all my life, but just recently took the plunge to go public with my work. The reason for that is my discovery of youtube a year ago. I've been so inspired by all you talented people out there and my own paper crafting has evolved tremendously thanks to you all. So I wanted to give some back and started this blog, a facebook and youtube. The response have been overwhelmingly more than I expected! I've entered challenges and truly have had so much fun to play with all of you!

Now last week I won the challenge for Anyone for Anya and this week I was offered a membership in The Rubber Buggy's first ever design team!!! This is so exciting I could just burst in flames here and now!!!

So I hope  all of you who takes the time to visit me also will stop by the rubber buggy. I found out about the DT call through splitcoaststampers, but it turns out to be this hidden little gem of stores and for all you international stampers - super great shipping prices!! They offer free shipping after spending just $100!!! For all you in the US, this may be expensive. But for us in Sweden... This could easily be spent at home as a G45 12x12 cost a little more than $30. A TH alterations die just about under $30 - you see my point... Thus, the shipping cost still makes it worth shopping online, but the low shipping cost is greatly valued:)

Thank you for popping by!
All comments are greatly appreciated, have a great weekend!!
