Simon Says........Get Krafty!


Welcome to another edition of the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!  


Our challenge this week is to get krafty: use kraft cardstock or color on your entries!  The design team are playing with Memory Box products this week.   Here's my first card.


I used these Memory Box dies: Grapevine Wreath, cut apart and reformed to form a fat heart, and Fancy Blossoms.  My sentiment is from Simon's Just a Love Note set, stamped in Hero Arts Latte ink, and the paper is from Doodlebug Design's Sweetheart pad.  I love the little kraft grid with the tiny hearts sprinkled throughout!  At the very end I added a natural twine bow and a Hero Arts pearl heart.

And here's another, using the same wreath die, stamp set, and paper, but adding the Perched Reed Bird die and some hearts.


Heidi has contributed another of her $50.00 gift vouchers to the Simon Says Stamp store for the lucky random winner of this week's challenge!

Lin, I LOVE these! Must. Have. Grapevine Wreath. Die!

It could be used easily for an Easter card, too; it reminds me of the crown of thorns Jesus wore.

Thanks so much for leaving love at my place recently, and Happy Valentine's Day!
