Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #388


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the Gift It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Spellbinders products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

 For my project, I used Spellbinders Holiday Holly Jolly Etched Dies.
This die set is indeed very detailed and easy to work with. You can arrange however you like with the holly leaves. I inked them up with Kuretake Watercolors. 

To make the colors stand out and keep the design interesting, I added pattern paper and lots of Nuvo drops on the holly leaves. 


The sentiment was stamped from a retired STAMPtember release (with Clearly Besotted) set.

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!
There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog . If you haven't subscribed by email, you may want to do so you don't miss out.
You have until Wed. 8am Eastern Time to join in :-)
Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too !
I hope you check out the DT's work!  I can't wait to see what you create!!
Thanks for stopping by!
