Simon Says..........Bright and Cheerful

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


wed-newchallenge-header



Our theme this week is Bright and Cheerful, and we're highlighting Hero Arts products!  One of the best things Hero Arts did was to introduce Color Layering stamps.  I have several of them, and I'm glad to see that they continue to add new sets with each release.  

First up, what's more bright and cheerful than a butterfly?!


supplies: white card, Hero Arts Color Layering Swallowtail, VersaFine Onyx Black and various Altenew inks, MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle die

I imagined these flowers to be zinnias and stamped them in shades of pink.  This set has 3 layers for the butterfly and the flower, and I used my Misti to line them up.

Next up,  another color-layering set:


supplies: white and Audrey Blue card stock, Hero Arts Color Layering Flamingo stamps and matching die, Simon's Tropical Leaves and sentiment from It's Your Birthday, Altenew ink cubes (Tea Party, Sweet Dreams, Sea Shore, and Green Meadows), a woodblock party hat stamp, adhesive foam strips

I've had this flamingo set for awhile and I don't think I'll ever tire of playing with it - it always makes me smile!  This time I added a party hat to the mix and made a summer birthday card.  

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift certificate

Yay! I love color layering stamps from Hero Arts too. I love their stamp sets that accompany tiny ink cube sets. I love the pink layered flowers on the first card. So bright and pretty. And that flamingo with the whole tropical vibe, so perfect for this weather! Two splendid designs. xx Ankita
