Simon Says Stamp Wednnesday Challenge #336


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

This week the challenge is...

Anything Goes

 We are using Clearly Besotted 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 design, I chose to use Scribble Flower Stamp set. This set of stamps may be small, but the possibilities are endless!   

I was determined to use EVERY SINGLE stamp from this small 3"x 4" stamp set ($6.99). I took out all my new favorite inks and started to stamp on the rectangle piece that I have....and this is my 100% stamped result.

a little note

  I realized that I like the free style stamping! By that, I meant that I was not following the exact lines of the stamps. I purposely did not line up the solids with the outline stamps
This works fabulously since this stamp set is kind of whimsical and fun. The purple flowers were stamped in Hot Mama (Simon Says Stamp) with the Generational Stamping Technique.

The following card is actually my first take with this stamp setIt turned out lovely, but I thought it is a bit on the boring/blah side!? 

if friends were flowers...
 I love how easy it is to layer the solid and outline stamps to create a flower scene. This set, is definitely is " the little stamp set that could". Whether you are a seasoned stamper or a beginner, this one is a sure to please!

As always, Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

I love these cards with 'free style" stamping. I realized a few months ago that after using stamp positioners for so many of my cards, that I had lost sight of the fun and creativity of just free styling! I have been feeling much better lately since I haven't relied 100% on these postioners. These cards are just beautiful as always, Virginia. Thanks for sharing your art.
