Happy July! It's Wednesday, too, and that means a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog!
Our theme this week is "Tie it Up!" Use ribbon or twine or anything else you can think of along that vein. The design team are using Paper Smooches products this week.
supplies: Paper Smooches Lovely Thoughts, 2 shades each of peach, pink, yellow, and green inks, lemongrass satin ribbon, green enamel dot
Aren't these roses lovely? They look like stained glass with their thick black outlines! This is a multi-stamping set, so coloring them is so easy!
For my next card I was influenced by this sweet card by Lucy. I used some small elements from another Paper Smooches set, and stamped a background, then broke it up, adding some stitching and a die-cut sentiment.
supplies: Paper Smooches Blossoming Buds, Simon's Cotton Candy and Melon inks, along with Hero Arts Butter Bar and Bubble Gum inks, Paper Smooches Birthday Word die, pink cardstock, Paper Smooches Dots die, Doodlebug Bumblebee twine, an enamel heart, Hero Arts Zinnia Bloom, colored with markers
I used the dot die on either side of the panel where I wanted my sentiment to be, then threaded my twine and sewed using the dots as my guide. The daisy was not originally planned for this card, but it was sitting on my desk, and I liked it paired with the little flowers.
Now it's your turn! Our sweet generous Heidi has yet again provided another $50.00 gift voucher
to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
