Simon Says.........Anything Goes!


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

Our theme this week is Anything Goes and my teamies and I are showcasing Wplus9 goodies.  

I have 2 cards, both using flowers in the colors of the season.

supplies: Bristol paper and Audrey Blue card stock, Wplus9 Beautiful Bouquets Mums and Hand Lettered Thanks stamps, Spectrum Aqua markers and water, Simon's Thanks and Stitched Rectangle dies

When I think of mums, I think of those in autumn colors of golds, burgundies, and rusts, and colored these with that in mind.  Dawn of Wplus9 makes it so easy to make a card with her Beautiful Bouquets stamps - I just trimmed a piece of Bristol, stamped and watercolored the image, and added a few splatters and my sentiment. 

This next one features an older stamp, but one I still enjoy playing with, because it's one of those multi-stamp sets where you can overstamp to give a little more detail:

supplies: Simon Cream and Orange Peel card stock, Wplus9 Watercolored Anemones, Altenew Warm and Cozy inks, Hero Arts Green Hills and Grass inks, Simon's Thanks Scallop Border die

I stamped the sprays and flowers, cut them out, and then trimmed the lower one to fit under and around the scalloped panel.

Now it's your turn!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
