Simon Says......Pin It!


It's time for another Simon Says Stamp challenge, and I think we're going to have lots of fun with this one!  The theme this week is "Pin It!"  I really enjoyed putting this card together - hope you'll like it too!

SSS July 10, Pin It

I have had these tiny little Hero Arts clothespins for years and have barely used them, so I started with them. I decided to use them to hang a bunch of banners using sentiments from the Simon exclusive Expressions for You set, and wanted to make them into a kind of list.  So first I found this notebook paper from My Mind's Eye Tangerine The Sweetest Thing.  It has some banners and flowers already printed on it, along with a pretty little doily, just my style!  Next I pulled more papers from my MME Collectable "Notable" pad, stamped my sentiments and made them into banners, then die-cut the "You" to put over the doily.   I wrapped some twine around my notebook paper before affixing it to my pool card base, and then used those little clothespins to attach each banner to the twine.

To finish, I punched out some hearts from the same papers and glued them to the clothespins and the notebook paper.  And added a few matching enamel dots to the centers of the printed flowers.

Our sweet and generous Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher to the random winner of our challenge this week!



There are so many fun things at the Simon Says Stamp Superstore!!  Just type in almost anything in the search bar, and you'll be amazed at how well categorized everything is!  The other day I typed in "gingham", and I got 3 pages worth!!
