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

wed-newchallenge-header

Welcome to our last challenge of 2014 at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

This week's challenge will last 2 weeks, so that we can all enjoy the Holidays.....we wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!  We'll see you back here in 2015!

We'll go out with your favorite challenge, Anything Goes!  The design team are using products made by Docrafts, and if you have anything from them, we'd love to see you sharing it with us, too.

I chose a pad of paper from DoCrafts called Parisienne Blue, and made 2 cards using the papers in it.

For my first card I cut a variety of the papers into strips and glued them together onto a backing to use for my background.  This technique is a nice way to show off all the patterns, and also to use up small scraps, when you have them.  I added  Memory Box Gorgeous Gardenia Outline die and a sentiment from Simon's Watt's Up? stamp set.

And next, I made a little quilt, kind of Nordic in feel, I think.  I used just 2 of the papers, and one of  Wplus9's Quilt Cuts 2 dies, and edged it with one of Paper Smooches Dots & Dashes dies.  This is a bigger card than usual for me; it measures 5 inches square:
