It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!

This week our theme is "Thanksgiving or Thank You", and the design team are working with Simon Says Stamp products.

supplies: cream cardstock, design paper from Authentique's Thankful collection, Simon's Giving Thanks die and Autumn Blessings clear stamp set, natural twine, copper sequin

I used one of the leafy wreaths from the stamp set and stamped it 4 times in autumn colors, changing the stamp position slightly each time, then fussy-cut it out and popped it above the card, adding a twine bow and a sequin.  

I used autumn colors for my next card, too.




supplies: Ivory cardstock and watercolor paper, Simon's Many Thanks clear stamp set, wild honey, ripe persimmon, festive berries, and peeled paint distress inks, VersaFine onyx black ink and clear embossing powder, Simon's stitched rectangle die

I stamped the flowers and leaves on watercolor paper using distress inks, then went over them with a wet paint brush to move the color around.

Now it's your turn!  I can't wait to see what you make!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store for one lucky random winner of our challenge!
