Simon Says.......Layer It Up!


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

Our challenge this time is to "Layer It Up!", and my teamies and I are playing with Concord & 9th goodies!  I used this as an excuse to get myself their Plaid Background stamp set and made 2 cards in my happy colors.  Both my cards have layered stamping and layered die-cutting.

supplies:  white, green, Simon's Surf Blue, Audrey Blue, and Green Apple card stock, Plaid Background clear stamp set, Hero Arts Grass and Simon's Audrey Blue inks, Altenew Fantasy Florals dies, Simon's Small Hello die, Memory Pox Pinpoint Rectangle die, Winnie & Walter Noelle Cutaway, adhesive foam squares

I started with a panel of surf blue cardstock and stamped my plaid pattern on that with green and blue inks.   I love the richness that starting with a colored card stock gives!  

The next plaid started with white cardstock, and I layered another beautiful Concord & 9th die set over the stamped panel.
