Simon Says..........Use More Than One Stamp

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


Our theme this week is Use More Than One Stamp, and we are showcasing Honey Bee products.

I chose a wreath builder stamp set and made 2 cards.

supplies: white card stock, plank background from SN@P Wood & Notebook Basics pad, Honey Bee Stamps Country Wreath elements, Gina K Wreath Builder stencil, sentiment from Avery Elle Floral Frame, May Arts Natural Twine bow

I first used my wreath builder stencil to make a leafy grapevine wreath, colored in the details with markers, sponged on some mowed lawn distress ink, and then fussy cut it out.  Next I stamped a few groupings of flowers and did the same.  The wreath was then popped above my card base, and the flower sprigs popped above that, so there is lots of dimension on this card!

I used the stamp set again for a much simpler second card, using some different flowers and the wreath this time:

supplies: white and Doll Pink card, Honey Bee Country Wreath, sentiment from Simon's Hope Blooms, Zig markers to color, tiny punched butterflies 

I stamped the grapevine wreath on my card front, and separately stamped the 3 floral sprigs, masking as needed, then cut them out and glued them to the wreath.  Then I stamped the little blue dots here and there, and added some punched butterflies, along with my sentiment.

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