Simon Says.......Anything Goes!

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


This week our theme is the ever-popular Anything Goes, and the team and I are showcasing one of my favorite stamp companies, Hero Arts!  I adore their color layering sets, so I got myself a fall one and made 2 cards.

supplies: kraft and cream card stock, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall plaid paper, Hero Arts Color Layering Grateful Leaves, various Altenew fall-colored mini inks, Simon's Stitched Rectangles dies, adhesive foam squares, purple tape for masking

I masked off a rectangle on a cream card panel and repeatedly stamped one of the sentiments, then removed the tape and trimmed it with a Stitched Rectangle die.  That panel was framed closely with kraft card stock, then placed onto a plaid panel.  My leaves were stamped and fussy-cut before arranging them above the rest of the card.

My next card also uses masking, with 2 more of the leaf stamps and another of the sentiments in this set.

supplies: cream card stock, Hero Arts Color Layering Grateful Leaves clear stamps, fall-colored mini ink cubes from Altenew, purple tape, adhesive foam squares

I stamped my sentiment in the center of my card base, then covered it with purple tape and stamped the leaves along the edges of the tape and upward/downward.  I also used the same inks to splatter before removing the masking.  Then I popped up 2 of the larger leaves, stamped in multiple colors and fussy-cut.
