Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #423


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

This week the challenge is... 

Anything Goes

 We are using Technique Tuesday 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 am using TT Carnations Friends Greenhouse Society.  I used this one stamp and created a bunch of carnations.


I started out by stamping the red carnation and then proceeded to stamp the rest of the carnations.

For the extra interest, I added Nuvo Embellishment Mousse (Platinum) with Halftone Stencil.

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 !

Simple Stamping and Coloring

Hello friends!
I am having a quick share with this new Simon Says Stamp Floral Bliss
which comes in the June Monthly Card Kit (which is, unfortunately, out of stock).
And that is why monthly subscription is a good thing if you don't want to miss out.

thank you

I used the Barely Beige to do the colorless coloring.

Ding--->The positioning of the stamp in MISTI proves to be very helpful because I can continued to stamp the image after coloring.

I adore this set as it offers simple coloring options.
Thank You
The text and pattern from Echo Park Paper Pad (Wedding Bliss) make the colors pop even more.

Hope this post gets your creative juices flowing...
Thanks for stopping by!
ps: I am trying out the new Inlinkz (now Lindeli). Yay or nay? Linking products take a big chunk of my time from creating and taking care of family and life in general. I do hope that you find it helpful.

Simple Shaker Card

Hello friends!

I am sharing a simple shaker card with the new Hexagon Dies from Pretty Pink Posh
Here is my guest post to the May Release blog hop.

I came up with a very simple shaker card design. I first stamped the background with Bold Bloom and adhere the Hexagon dies. In between, I sandwiched it with Double-sided Scotch tape (all around the hexagon die) and sequins.

The sweet images do all the work for you. Using kraft card stock (such as Neenah's) as part of the design element is super easy and effective. These Hexagon dies are like no other as they have built-in stitched lines! AND you can't beat those lovely scalloped edges!

If you have never tried making shaker cards, this is likely the easiest kind that you can make in a jiffy. All you need is any shape of die, double-sided dimensional tape and some acetate (use packaging if you don't have any).
