Time for another Anything Goes challenge at the Simon Says Stamp blog! We are using Impression Obsession products this week, and we'd love to see them from you if you have any! I'm in a garden mood today, with 2 cards for you, each using a sentiment from the In a Garden stamp set. And my papers are all from Graphic 45's Secret Garden pads.
This card started with the pretty shield in the 8" Secret Garden pad. It was the perfect size to hold my sentiment, so I fussy cut it out and framed it with a Die-Namics round Decorative Doily die cut. Then I chose the striped design paper. I added them to an embossed card front with some peachy pearls, a gift from Lisa at Christmas. I love how the Poppy embossing shows off the pretty main image!
The papers in this line are almost too pretty to cut into, but I forced myself to mount this pastel collage print onto my card, and then added a blue panel stamped with a bigger sentiment from the same set as above. I sponged all the edges with old paper distress ink and then just trimmed it with some lace, dyed seam binding, and a paper flower made from some dies and centered with an enamel dot.
Sweet Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp superstore to a random entrant to our challenge.
I can't wait to see what you make this week!
Before I go, I wanted to let you know that Simon Says Stamp is sponsoring a CardKit challenge at Splitcoast Stampers. If you have the April Card Kit, make something, post it in the gallery at SCS, and a random winner will receive a $25.00 E-card for the Simon Says Stamp Store! This will be an ongoing challenge with each month's Card Kit, so keep it in mind for upcoming months!
