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


Can you believe it's almost the end of May already?  And that means the beginning of summer!  But before we get there it's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme for the last week of each month is traditionally Anything Goes.  This week the design team are using Lil Inker or Newton's Nook products, 2 fairly new companies that make really fun stamps and dies!  Be sure to visit our Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog if you haven't already to see some fun cards that Guest Designer Lisa and my dt sisters have made this week!

I have 2 cards, both using Lil Inker stamp sets that feature some bold handwritten words.

supplies: Lil Inker Darling Diamonds, Simon's Green Apple and Audrey Blue inks and Hero Arts Mint Julep ink, Simon's Surf Blue cardstock (tiny strip) and Simple Stories SN@P! paper pad, various blue and green sequins

This set has lots of these diamonds in different patterns, along with a dot, which I also used in my design.

I got this Lil' Inker Spot On set just for this word!  I paired it with some Doodlebug Designs washi tapes and a Martha Stewart paper tape, plus some Pretty Pink Posh Springtime Mix sequins and a flower made from Spellbinder's Rose Creations dies, centered with a button with another sequin on top.  I look forward to playing with this set again soon, as it also contains lots of circles suitable to make a Bokeh style design.

Now it's your turn!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher


to the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store for the random winner of this challenge!
