Simon Says Stamp-tember Hop and Treasure Hunt !

Hi everyone,

This is my final Simon Says Stamp! challenge guest designer post. I've had so much fun playing along this month and send a big "Thank You" out to the Simon Says Stamp! design team for inviting me to play along with them.

For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & 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 Challenge blog and will finish on September 5th, 2011 on the Simon Says Stamp & 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 possibilitiesare 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 the Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs. For more details please refer to either blog.

If you arrived here from Debby's blog  then you are going in the right direction otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.

Here's my card:

I took a piece of the French Mint Core'Dination cardstock and adhered it backwards on the top section of my card base. I then cut a piece of patterned paper, torn the top edge, and adhered it in place. I then ran another piece of the Core'Dination cardstock through my die cut machine with the numbers embossing folder, sanded the raised area so the blue would show through, and ran it through the die cut machine with a tags die.
I stamped my greeting on a label and attached it to the tag using Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher. I threaded some lace ribbon and twine through the tag hole securing it with the Tiny Attacher before adhering the tag to the card.

Here is a list of the supplies I used:

- Number Collage Embossing Folder
- Stella & Rose: Gertie 6x6 paper pad
- Classic Messages
- Lace Ribbon
- Walnut Stain Distress Ink
- Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher
- French Mint Core'Dination cardstock (from Chocolate Box collection)

Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions about the card. :)
