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

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


As always at the end of each month, our theme is Anything Goes.  The team are playing with Simon Says Stamp exclusive sets.  Since it's the end of October, I decided to do 2 more fall cards before we get rolling on all-Christmas, all-the-time.  My favorite thing about fall is the changing leaves on our trees, so my cards feature trees this week, using some older Simon stamps and dies.

supplies: white, Dark Chocolate, Burnt Orange, Orange Peel, Sunshine, Green Leaf, Schoolhouse Red, Lipstick Red card stock, Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Fall dp, Simon's All Seasons Tree and Stitched Rectangle dies, sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs Fall Fox, fun foam

Since this design is so simple, I popped 2 of the layers up using fun foam, and lined each one with a bit of plaid.  My next card is a pretty simple design, too.

supplies: white and Audrey Blue cardstock, Simon's One with Nature stamps and Autumn Blessings dies, Nuvo markers to color, MFT Wonky Stitched Rectangle die

I scribbled the markers onto white card stock, cut my sentiment from that panel, then inlaid the sentiment and added the finished panel to a blue card - I like the mix of autumn colors and this blue.

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

Two stunning designs, Lin! Love the bit of plaid cardstock peeking out in the first design, and the color variation in the sentiment on the second design!
