Simon Says......Anything Goes!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

It's the last Wednesday of the month, and that means it's your favorite challenge at the Simon Says Stamp challenge, Anything Goes!  The design team is using Mama Elephant or Avery Elle products this week.  If you have some of either, we'd love to have you use them for your entry, too!

I chose a fun Avery Elle stamp set called Framed Fonts.  I had so much fun making the first card that I made another.

This one uses ivory parchment as my card base, Hero Arts Cup O' Joe mid-tone ink, some washi tape, and May Arts Natural Twine.  The little hearts are included in the stamp set.  I'm entering this one into the Moxie Fab World's Card Creations Week: Washi Tape Challenge.

I used another of the sentiments here, with Hero Arts Punch chalk ink for this one, and made a big banner from a paper I love from October Afternoon's Farm Girl pad.  I added some die-cut flowers from the Memory Box Bella Bouquet die and a Sizzix leaf branch die, using cardstock that matched the design paper.  Again I stamped that little heart in the same colors.

  9. Can't believe how different these are - and I love them both! So much character; each has such a different "feel". That you were able to match the flowers in the print on the second card is unbelievable! Wishing you basketfuls of Easter blessings, Lin.
