Simon Says.......Things with Wings!

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

Happy Wednesday!  It's time for a new Simon Says Stamp challenge, and this week our theme is Things with Wings!  I know the gallery is going to be full of beauty this week!  The design team  and our May Guest Designer Annette are using Studio Calico products.  Here's the first card I made for you:

This is the Day

I used these Studio Calico products: the floral paper from Darling Dear, and the butterfly wood veneers.  They were so fun to play with; I left 2 of them plain and used inks to color the other 2, then added some pearls and popped them above the card front with foam adhesives.  My sentiment is from one of my favorite Technique Tuesday sets, called This is the Day.

SSS May 8 Things with Wings

Most of the papers on this one are also from Darling Dear, and the paper for the clouds came from the Classic Calico pad.  This time I used some of the Birds wood veneers.  The sentiment is from a Simon exclusive stamp set, Just a Love Note, as is the tree trunk die, Small Forest Tree.

Heidi has generously offered up another $50.00 gift voucher.


There are so many wonderful things to choose from at the Simon Says Stamp superstore!
