Simon Says.......Something New

Happy 2013!!  And welcome to our first challenge of the year at Simon Says Stamp!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is Something New.   You can make a card for a new baby, a new home, a new job, or use something new, like I did today.  Here's my card:

SSS Jan 2 Something New

My something new is this new (to me) set of stamps by My Mind's Eye called "Cutie Pie", a part of their The Sweetest Thing line.  I masked off an area and stamped 4 of these doily stamps inside it using Hero Arts mid-tone Butter Bar, Grass chalk ink, and VersaFine Deep Lagoon inks.  After I removed my mask, I stamped the little stitches from the same set on either side of the doilies, then stamped my sentiment from Ali Edward's Simply You in black on a strip of vellum, and attached that along with some pearls and gems in the same colors.  

Heidi has provided us with another $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store for the random winner of our challenge.  I can't wait to see what you make!


When you visit our Simon Says Stamp challenge today, please don't forget to give our January Guest Designer Glenda Wyatt a nice welcome!
