Simon Says.........Think Pink!


Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!

Our theme this week is Think Pink - since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, we want you to use pink in your creations.  And we're reminding you to do a monthly check and schedule a yearly mammogram.  The DT are using Pink & Main products this week. I chose this Pink & Main Butterfly stamp set, because I equate them with new beginnings and hope......

SSS Oct 19

supplies: white cardstock, Basic Grey dp from Vivienne paper pad, Pink & Main Inspire butterflies, and Verve Believe sentiment, VersaMark ink and Simon White embossing powder, Pretty Pink Posh Sparkle Clear sequins, My Favorite Things Die-Namics Blueprints 20 scalloped die

I kept this design simple - just white embossed 2 of the butterfly stamps, plus an appropriate sentiment right onto a pink ombre design paper, then trimmed it, and added the panel to a white card base, along with some sparkly sequins.

My next card uses the largest butterfly from my set, along with some dies cut from a pink metallic sheet.

SSS Oct19

supplies: white and rose cardstock, metallic pink sheet and white glitter cardstock, Pink & Main Inspire butterfly stamp, Hero Arts Bubble Gum ink, unknown pink ribbon die, (but HERE is one that should work just as well, plus it has some wonderful sentiments),  Wplus9 hope die, Die-Namics Blueprints 20 stitched die

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