Simon Says..........Die Crazy!


Wednesday again and that means another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is Die Crazy, and the design team are all using Simon Says Stamp exclusives.  My first card uses almost all die-cuts and various design papers, with just a tiny sentiment stamped.

supplies: Simon exclusive dies: Whimsical Flowers, Circle on a Line, Small Hello, also Avery Elle's Simply Said Hello, enamel dots

My 2nd card uses the matching stamps and dies called Summer Garden.

SSS May 14

I first stamped my elements, colored them with various markers, and then used the dies to cut them out.  I arranged them to my liking, and then glued them onto my white card base, which I had embossed with a strip from Anna Griffin's Rosa embossing folder set.  The sentiment is also from the Summer Garden stamp set.

So now it's your turn!  Heidi has generously provided another $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store to a random winner of this week's challenge - will it be you this time?
