Simon Says Stamp and Show your Favourite Stamp!



Simon Says Stamp and Show your Favourite Stamp! My favourite stamp is one I recently got from a draw prize from Simon Says Stamp and Show.



I have always wanted to get this stamp but it wasn't available in the UK, so that was my first stamp I chose with my $50 prize. It is a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stamp "X1-1097". I started making the tag with marbleized colours of distress stains, fire brick, sponge sugar and antique linin. On this I stamped my stamp in black archival ink.



I used my Bigz die "Sewing Room" and put it through my Vagabond. I used honey comb paper to cover the bodice.



I finished it off with some Tim Holtz's Idea-ology buttons. The ribbon I bought at Christmas and has wire in it to keep it in a nice shape.  So this is my favourite stamp because over the years I have made lots of clothes for myself, my husband and my children along with dressing up clothes for the children.

  2. It is a fabulous stamp and a great purchase with your win. Your tag is really lovely and good to see the honeycomb paper being used, I think we should use it more often.... Crafty hugs, Anne x

  4. I always love your sewing related tags - this one is lovely with the pattern stamp. The tag reminds me of all the sewing we used to do together. It's nice when art brings back good memories as well as looking lovely. XXXX
