Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge # 291

wed-newchallenge-header 

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

This week the challenge is...

Thanksgiving

 We are using Simon Says Stamp 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 Giving Thanks and Swirls and Dots
Giving Thanks
First of all, I did the die cut and trimmed the size down a little. Then I made the die cut with pattern paper and then pieced the two together. I also used the partial stencil and created the subtle background with white embossing paste. As for the sentiment at the bottom, I took out the Many Thanks and stamped the smallest sentiment.
 
As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

Great techniques here. Genius to have the stencil/paste design coming out from behind the journaling card. Fantastic inlaid die cutting of the "thanks" and that bow...you're going to have to show us how you do them so perfectly.
