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

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to this week's challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!  


Our theme this week is Anything Goes, and the team is highlighting Concord & 9th goodies!

For my first card, I chose a little turnabout stamp set, which I think is the perfect "confetti" look for a birthday card or anything celebratory.

supplies: white and pink card, Concord & 9th Bitty Burst Turnabout clear stamp set and Turnabout Jig, Altenew Painted Flowers, mini ink cubes in Puffy Heart, Purple Wine, Pinkaliscious, Lavender Fields, Deep Iris, Volcano Lake, and Lagoon, Simon's Happy sentiment set and Stitched Rectangle die

These new Turnabout sets now have a transparent guide to help line up the stamp perfectly, and along with a turnabout jig, the hardest part of making a turnabout background is now choosing your colors!  And I used the same ink colors for my flowers, so everything works perfectly together.

This next card is a little more detailed, using a combination of another turnabout set with a stamped plaid, both of them Concord & 9th products.

supplies: white, yellow, and 2 greens card, a scrap of Doodlebug floral dp, Concord & 9th Lovely Blossoms Turnabout stamp set, Turnabout Jig, Altenew yellow and green inks, Concord & 9th Plaid Background stamp, Simon's Beautiful Day sentiment, My Favorite Things Stitched Blooms dies

I stamped a panel of the Lovely Blossoms Turnabout, then sliced it diagonally and added it to a stamped plaid panel.  Then I stamped my sentiment and added the die-cut flower and leaves.

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

Both cards are so pretty. My favorite is the pretty yellow card with the Plaid Background stamp and lovely stitched flower. I pinned it right away. Thanks for the inspiration.
