Paper padding

Hi everyone,

Yesterday I came back from my trip to Paris and I've had an amamzing time! So much fun adventures with the girls. This was the first time we had been on a trip together. But enough about Paris... It's another Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge. This time, we load up our 6x6 paper pads and get all paper paddy this week.

Do you also buy the lovely 6x6 paper pads and use just a few sheets of it for one single project and then forget all about them? Well I serieusly do. So this challenge is perfect for me, I finally can use some sheets of my hoarded paper pads! A while ago I made this amoire out of cardstock with my Silhouette Cameo and this pattern of SVGcuts.

Honestly, it was a bit boring. Perfect to cover up with beautiful patterns of Meadowlark 6x6 paper pad. In the beginning I'm always a bit hesitant to rip those beautiful sheets into pieces. But after a while I rip and tair like a crazy person. Well not all that crazy ... You know what I mean... With a lot Multi Medium Matte I layered all the pieces of paper on. It still looked a bit plain, it lacked some color. So out come the paints and inks. Well only two colors of paint the Pool Paint Dabber and I stamped with Mustard Seed Distress Paint. I love the new Remnants Rubs from Tim Holtz, they're really cool! That's the beauty of the rubs, they apply to sort of uneven surfaces.


To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!
