Ciao a tutti! Primo post di Febbraio per le sfide di Simon Monday Challenge! Oggi l'argomento è Young at heart e tutto il Design Team ha lavorato con i prodotti di Simon Says Stamp, Hey love è l'ultima collezione e QUI potete vederla per intero!
Cambio della guardia anche per la nostra Designer Spotlight, questo mese avremo con noi   Paper Profusion, se non la conoscete visitate il suo blog, ne rimarrete affascinati!

This week we are challenging you to Young At Heart
It is the first Monday of the month and that means that we are showcasing a specific company. This week we have chosen to showcase our very own Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Products. You can check out the latest ‘Hey Love’ release here, its full of ‘love-ly’ stamps, dies, stencils and more.
This week we are welcoming  Paper Profusion into the Designer Spotlight. If you haven’t visited Nicola’s blog before then you are in for a real treat, her work is fabulous!

Chi mi conosce sa che non sono una romanticona e che il rosa non è esattamente il mio colore, ma ho voluto uscire dalla mia comfort zone e cimentarmi con questa sfumatura, l'occasione era perfetta! Ho preparato una card con una delle nuove fustelle a marchio Simon, Best day ever, San Valentino è moooolto vicino quindi....

My friends know that I am not very romantic, and that pink is not my color, but I wanted to get out of my comfort zone and experiment with this nuance, the occasion was perfect! I made a card with one of the new  Simon's wafer dies,  Best day ever, Valentine's Day is so close....

Per lo sfondo ho usato il set Brushstrokes di Tim Holtz con Distress ink in gradazione dal rosa al grigio.

For the background I used  Brushstrokes set by Tim Holtz  and Distress ink from pink to gray to create an ombré effect.

Un tocco di idea-ology!

A little touch of Idea-ology!

Un altro set a marchio Simon per completare la card, Mini heart set.

To finish my card I used another lovely set from Simon Says Stamp, Mini heart.

I wish I could post my comment in your lovely language, but I'm happy I can do so in English (well, my "Texan version" of English, that is. ;-) I was really impressed to see how beautifully Tim's new Stampers Anonymous set, "Brushstrokes" looks on a project! I actually passed up the opportunity to purchase that one, last week, but I think I'll be taking a drive out to my favorite craft store and hope they still have it! 😯 Your talent for putting lovely artwork together is a terrific inspiration, and I always enjoy seeing what you come up with! (especially this particular Challenge, as "pinks" aren't really "my colors", either!) Stepping outside your "comfort zone" suits you, very well!

For someone who says that pink is not a color you're comfortable with, you certainly nailed it here! i really like the brush look of the background and I like how the lettering is a crisp white! It is truly so pretty and once again you've shown that you are an expert at any color and any design style!

Totally lovely, Barbara! I love how you combined the sentiment with the brushstroke stamps! :)
