Simon Says.........It's Hip to be Square!

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday blog!


Welcome to another challenge!  This week we have a fun theme for you, called "It's Hip to be Square"!  My teamies and I are using Simon Says Stamp exclusive products, and we'd love to see you using yours, too!  I used this theme as an excuse to get myself a couple of Simon products that I've had on my wishlist for awhile.  And, as it turns out, both of my cards use a favorite element, the scribble flower, as a main ingredient.

First up, I made a square card, and my square element is the gingham stencil pattern.

supplies: white, 2 shades of pool, and 2 shades of green cardstock, Simon Gingham stencil, twisted citron distress ink, Simon's Single Roses and Painted Hugs dies, DieNamics Stitched Mini Scallop Square die, Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares

I have been eternally in love with all things gingham, so I was thrilled to be able to get this stencil for my stash!

Next is a card using square tiles as my required element; they're another item from my wishlist - I love the idea that now I can make whatever sentiment I want on my cards!

supplies: white, green, and Penny Black Purple Mountain cardstock, dp from MFT Tranquil Textures paper pad, Simon's Heart of Roses die and Game Tile Letters stamp set, Scrapbook Adhesives foam squares

I really like the addition of the blue background to the purples and greens!

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher
