Simon Says.......Make Your Own Background


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

Our challenge this week is to make your own background, and we're showcasing Lawn Fawn products!  I chose their Fab Flowers set and made 2 cards, a warm version and a cool one.

SSS Feb21

supplies: white and Green Apple card stock, flowers and sentiment from Fab Flowers, Altenew inks from Pocketful of Sunshine, Warm & Cozy, Rose Petal, and Tropical Forest ink sets, Simon's Wavy Scallop Stitches die

SSS  Feb 21

supplies: white, black, and Cornflower Blue card stock, Lawn Fawn Fab Flowers, inks from Altenew's Glacier Caves, Sea Shore, Deep Blue Seas, and Tropical Forest sets, Simon's Stitched Rectangle and Painted Hugs dies, Winnie & Walter "sending" from Big, Bold Friends set, adhesive foam to lift center panel

As you can see, this set has 2 layers for each of the flowers and leaves.  I only used 2 of the 4 different flowers in this set, and there's a cute butterfly in it, too, in addition to more sentiments.
