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

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


This week our theme is "Make Your Own Background", and my teammates and I are showcasing Concord & 9th products.

I chose their Plaid Background stamp set, and made 2 cards with it.

supplies: white, gold, black, and Green Leaf cardstock, Concord & 9th Plaid Background clear set and sentiment from Brushed Blossom set, Altenew Warm Sunshine and VersaFine Onyx Black inks, Altenew Fantasy Floral flower and leaf dies, Simon's Summer Gold sequins, adhesive foam squares

I love black, white and yellow together!  Here's another version, using the same inks but stamping on a pale yellow cardstock to begin:

supplies: white, black, and Lemon Chiffon card stock, Concord & 9th Plaid Background, Altenew Warm Sunshine and VersaFine Onyx Black inks, Simon's Summer Flowers and My Sunshine stamps, sunshine die, Nuvo Sunshine Yellow and Irish Clover marker sets to color, adhesive foam squares

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

Beautiful cards. I have this set but have never used the thin stripe like you did. I love the yellow and black together and I like how you stamped it on the pale yellow on the second card. TFS

Love your beautiful card. Your backgrounds are awesome. Thank you for the inspiration.

Beautiful cards, Lin! Love your yellow plaid backgrounds and beautiful your second card is! I should have visited here earlier! I love the combination of yellow& black and I love sketches in both cards. Such graceful designs. ♡

Love how you paired the plaid with the flowers. I am such a gingham and plaid person, too much to be real! And I adore both your cards. They are so bright and summery! Have a lovely day! xx Ankita

Fabulous cards! What a difference the yellow card stock makes. I have to say, the sunflower card stole my heart. I love sunflowers and I love that sentiment. And I really love the plaid on the yellow card stock. 💛🖤💛
