♥ Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge! ♥


Welcome to another of our annual Simon Says Stamp Summer Vacation Kid's Challenge where we host a special challenge dedicated to our young designers.


It is time for all you crafters to let your children loose in your crafty corners for a few hours. Just close your eyes and set them free to explore their creativity. You are allowed to hide your Copic Markers and extra special papers and you are allowed to help just a little bit if necessary, but we really want the children to 'DO IT' themselves as much as possible.

This challenge is open to all children aged between 2 and 16 inclusive

We have not 1, not 2 but 3 surprise parcels of crafty goodies, hand picked by Simon!



The challenge will be posted on the Wednesday Challenge Blog 1st Aug at 9am EST and will finish at 6pm EST on Aug 31st

Here are a couple of cards that my kids made as part of the Simon Says Stamp Jr. Team. :)

This was made by my oldest son Antonio. He hand drew his pickle people (LOL Say that 3 times fast!) and then added some sparky Green Glitter to the outer images to give it sparkle. The Big pickle is giving the little pickle a card. :) He finished it off with some Clear Droplets by Pretty Pink Posh.

And this one was made by my little guy, Santino. He used the Fox on a Branch Clear stamp by Wild Rose Studio for his card. He colored it in with some Colored Pencils and then added some Distress Glitter over the image. He asked me to make a bow for him out of twine, so then we added that to finish it off. Love his handwritten sentiment. :)

I can't wait to see what your little ones create!!

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree! Your sons have inherited your sense of style already, Melissa! The pickle people and their punny sentiment are so fun (and I LOVE that happy green!), and how fun to see Santino's pretty yellow glittery fox and the perfect sentiment! Well done, boys!

Antonio, your dill pickle people just make me giggle! What a cute idea and you made a very humorous card! Santino, your glittery fox that's hanging in there is so cute! I like how you made him sparkle! Thanks for joining the design team this summer with your creations!! Maura

Both of these cards are just wonderful and I love the dill pickle one!! Isn't it fun when you can share your love of crafts with your children?
The glittery pickle outlines make it even cuter!
