Simon Says.........Thanks/Thanksgiving

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


This week our theme is Thanks/Thanksgiving, and my teamies and I are playing with beautiful Altenew goodies!  When I think of Altenew, I think of their gorgeous multi-step stamps, so I chose one of my favorites and stamped it in the colors of the season.

supplies: white and Orange Peel card stock, Altenew Build a Flower Rose stamp and die set, Altenew Warm & Cozy and Tropical Forest mini ink cubes, Hero Arts Old Letter Writing wood stamp, embossed in white, and sponged with rusty hinge and carved pumpkin distress inks, Simon Thankful Heart sentiment, Doodlebug orange pearls

Here's another one using the same inks as above with another of their layering stamp sets.

supplies: white, Green Leaf, and Orange Peel card stocks, vellum, Altenew Ditsy Print stamps, Warm and Cozy and Tropical Forest mini ink cubes, sentiment from Simon's (retired) Autumn Blessings clear stamp set, Stitched Rectangle die, and Lawn Fawn Quilted Backdrop die

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


to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 1 lucky random winner of this week's challenge!
