Simon Says..........All Things Bright and Beautiful

wed-newchallenge-header

Welcome to a new month and a new weekly challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!



This week we're asking you to make us something Bright and Beautiful!  The design team are all using Hero Arts products.  I chose some of my favorite bright colors and made you 2 cards.

SSS Feb 4

supplies: Hero Arts Tall Flowers and sentiment from their Dauber Bunch, sequins

This Tall Flowers stamp includes some very long stems, but I eliminated them by fussy-cutting the bottom of each panel of stamped flowers, then lifting these panels above my card base, which had been stamped with my sentiment.  

SSS Feb4

supplies: Hero Arts Large Lotus Pattern stencil, picked raspberry, spiced marmalade and mustard seed distress inks, Hero Arts sentiment from Made with Love, Simon's Doll Pink cardstock, Crystal Reflections sequins

After stencilling my panel, I embossed it with a dot folder, then added my sentiment to vellum, which I wrapped around the panel before attaching it to the card base.  

Now it's your turn!  We've got another $50.00 gift voucher at the Simon Says Stamp store for our random winner of this week's challenge!

  20. both cards are beautiful! I love that tall flower set! I've been thinking of trying out the Hero Arts ink pads, but see that they have 3 different kinds of inks. Do you use their inks, and which one do you like, or what are the advantages of the different types? Thanks so much!!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg
