Simon Says Stamp is hosting their annual Summer Vacation Kid’s Challenge where they host a special challenge dedicated to their young designers.
Now, before you stop in your tracks and ask yourself “Is Jenn posing as a kid?” or “I didn’t think Jenn had a kid” No Worries! I asked one of Chris’s daughter’s, Cate if she would like to create something. She was super excited for the chance to be featured!
Cate is 12 years old and loves creating with fabric and recently started needle felting. I am SO not creative when it comes to those mediums, but I am happy to share some creativity with paper with her when she visits. She and I have done a few crafty things – and she is always showing just how creative she is. For example she created this yummy cupcake tower with some Hero Art stamps! She did it all on her own, no eclipse masking tape or anything, and she made her own gradient background with copics – clever right!?
She wanted to make a summer card for the challenge, so last weekend I showed her where my summer stamps were, set her up with an acrylic block some ink, adhesive and scissors and stepped back and let her create all on her own. No guidance from me. I just LOVE the adorable card she came up with using Lawn Fawn’s Life is Good and Paper Smooches Slang Gang set!
Be sure to head over the the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog to see the other creations from our young crafters.
