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

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

It's the end of the month, and that means Anything Goes at Simon Says Stamp!  The Design Team are all using Craftwork Cards Candis on our projects - we'd love to see you using them, too, if you have them!  Here's my cards this week:

SSS June 26, Candis

I used an older Hero Arts stamp, Stitched Flower Trio,  for my stems and leaves.  I used my Candis to make some flowers; I used these sets: Flower Power Mia for the petals, and Coconut Macaroon for the dotted centers.  I layered my stamped panel over an aqua chevron paper from Simple Stories Sn@p! Color Vibe, and stamped an aqua-embossed sentiment on vellum.

Here's another card using the hot pink Candis from the same pack:

SSS Candis, June 26

I paired these up with a paper from MME's Lost & Found Two Blush paper pad, and the Hero Arts Starbursts stamp, embossed in white.  I framed my panel with a bracket punched edge (Fiskar's) and added a hot pink silk ribbon and my sentiment from My Happy.

I also got a pack of very pale pink and blue gingham Candis and here's what I did with them:

SSS June 26

I first stamped my own background using elements from the Simon exclusive stamp set Flower Friend, coloring in the flowers with colored pencils, then using the Gingham Galaxy Candis as my flower centers.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts Truly Appreciated, stamped in Charcoal mid-tone ink.  The inks for the background are Brilliance Pearlescent Coral and Sky Blue.  

Our Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher for the random winner of the challenge this week!

  16. I had to come over from the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to tell you how much I just love your card! How creative to make flowers out of the Candi! I just love the colors too, and that sentiment on vellum. Great work. Thanks for sharing.

  24. I love these dots (they are easy for mailing), but had no idea that they came in these fancy designs. Love all these gems, but that vellum sentiment knocks my sox off! So delicate and lovey, each! Lin, you continue to amaze!
