Simon Says.........Anything Goes!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

It's the last Wednesday of the month, and that means our challenge this week at Simon Says Stamp is Anything Goes!!  This week the Design Team and May Guest Designer Annette are playing with Bottle Cap, Inc. and/or Authentique products.  If you own any of these products, we'd love to see you use them!  I had SUCH fun with the bottle caps; I've never worked with them before.  So I made you 2 cards today:


This first one uses papers from Authentique's Lovely collection.  The bottle caps I chose are flattened chrome caps and here I filled this one with a circle of one of the papers, and then placed it into the center of my die-cut flower.  My sentiment is a stamp and die combination by Simon called Expressions for You.


I made a really easy card for my 2nd sample today, playing with some new washi: a  washi paper from We R Memory Keepers, which I also used to line my bottle cap, and a Queen & Co tape.  I added a sentiment from the Simon exclusive Flower Friend, stamped in Hero Arts Red Royal mid-tone ink and a double bow of twine.  

Heidi has given us another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of this challenge.


You can use it for anything you'd like at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!

I used to use these caps - bet I have some kicking around. Thanks for the great ideas! You KNOW that first one has my heart, Lin. Love the colors, softness and the hearts! I don't think I'll try this challenge - the odds are against me! Too many submit. Thanks for sharing.
