Simon Says Stamp is hosting their annual Summer Vacation Kid’s Challenge where they host a special challenge dedicated to their young designers.
Anything Goes with Glitter for this challenge so, 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.
Cate, Chris’s younger daughter is featured as one of the guest designers for the challenge again this year. You can see some of the cards she made for the challenge last few years, WICKED creative!

Cate is 14 years old and is an awesome cardmaker. She has a lot of other creative talents too. She loves creating with fabric and needle felting. She recently designed and created some costumes for a school play!!! She also has been dabbling in theater makeup and special effects makeup and the things she creates on herself are AMAZING!
My studio isn’t really fully unpacked but she was inspired enough to create with what was near by.
The gooey drips were made by hand by Cate with Watercolor Pencils! She also used Hero Arts Color Layering Ice Cream, and Tim Holtz Distress Glitter Dust.
Be sure to head over the the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog to see the other creations from our young crafters. If you have any young artists in your life ages 2-16 years old- have them enter the challenge. Simon Says is giving away THREE grab bags! You have until August 31st 7pm EST to join in and you can enter as many times as you like.
Very talented young lady.
