Simon Says Stamp...........Red, White, and Blue

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


Our theme this week is Red, White, and/or Blue, in honor of our country's birthday today!  My teamies and I are playing with Simon Says Stamp exclusive goodies.

SSS July 4

supplies: white and Soft Navy card stock, Simon's Brush Stroke Messages and Seeing Stars stamp sets, Lipstick Red and Navy inks, retired Fireworks stencil from Simon's July 2016 Card Kit, Nuvo Pure Platinum embellishment mousse and glitter, Impression Obsession Stars and Stripes cling stamp

I trimmed a piece of white cardstock and stamped my sentiment using red and navy inks, and then did the same with my brush-stroke stripes and stars.  Then I used my stencil to add some fireworks.  After spreading platinum mousse through the stencil I removed it and added some glitter for some sparkle.

Here's one more card, just for fun - I saw a similar idea on Pinterest and thought I'd see if I could make it work, using Simon's Scallop Stitches.  I paired it with a teddy from my collection.
