Simon Says..........Let's Be Clear

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday and welcome to a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

Our theme this week is a fun one: Let's Be Clear.  You can use acetate or vellum, glass, glossy accents, translucent embossing paste - or even a clear stamp!  The design team are all using products from Clearly Besotted, and if you have any of their stamps or dies, we'd love to see you using them also, but it's not a requirement to enter our challenge.  

I chose the set called Happy Everything and paired it up with some vellum for my cards.

SSS July 9

I white embossed this pretty blossoming branch on vellum, then turned it over and colored in the details with some distress markers.  I trimmed it into a partial panel and attached it to a card base made of Simon's Cotton Candy cardstock, to which I white embossed a sentiment from the same set.   And to finish I glued on some antique tatted lace and some white pearls.

This rose is the other floral image in the set.  I did the same as above, white embossed it on vellum, then fussy-cut it out and glued it to a panel that had been inked with worn lipstick and picked raspberry distress inks and overstamped with a lace pattern in picked raspberry.  The sentiment from the set was also white embossed before I popped the panel above my white card base. 

Now it's your turn!

  2. gorgeous cards Lin :-) both of them are beautiful, I love how you used the vellum, giving them a very soft and feminine look.
    How did you stick the cut out flower onto the card ? I can't see any glue, that is very clever of you :-)
