Simon Says.........Clean and Simple


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

Our theme this week is CAS: Clean and Simple, and the DT are all playing with CASual Fridays products.

I find myself in an uncomfortable position this week - the stamp set I got to use this week has evidently now been discontinued, as it no longer shows up at Simon.  I'm pretty sure that is the case, because I found a newer very similar set called Mistletoe and Holly, which would work at least for my first card.

supplies: kraft and BoBunny Wild Berry cardstock, CASual Fridays Merry Kiss-Mas clear stamp set, VersaFine onyx black and VersaMark inks, Simon white embossing powder, Doodlebug Ladybug twine, Hero Arts pearl heart, Signo white gel pen, Quickie glue pen, DieNamics Blueprints 20 stitched rectangle die, adhesive foam squares

There is a bow on the mistletoe sprig - using a glue pen, I glued some twine right over the stamped bow.

For my second card, I stamped the holly repeatedly in the center of my card base, masking the top and bottom.  Then I added some red strips and a colored version of the holly.

supplies: Hero Arts Grass layering paper and Simon Schoolhouse Red cardstock, CASual Fridays Merry Kiss-Mas stamps, Grass and Versamark ink with white embossing powder, Signo white gel pen

After I'd put all my elements onto my card, I felt it needed something, and so I added the little white dots by hand with my white pen.  That really helped to pull everything together.

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