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

Happy Wednesday - welcome to our challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


It's the last Wednesday of the month, so that means our challenge is Anything Goes!  The team are playing with Gina K. Designs products!

I've got lots to show you this week, starting with 2 cards using Gina's Wreath Builder sets.

supplies: white, yellow, and Green Apple cardstock, various motifs from Gina's Wreath Builder and Autumn Wreath Builder clear stamps, 3 3/4" Wreath Builder stencil, Altenew mini ink cubes, blended sentiments from Sugar Pea Funky Wreath Spring, and Simon's My Sunshine stamps, Sunshine dieblack enamel dots

supplies: white, Green Apple, Surf Blue card, various elements from Gina's Wreath Builder, Autumn Wreath Builder, and Mini Wreath Builder clear stamps, 3 3/4" Wreath Builder stencil, Altenew mini cube inks, tiny green pearls 

I truly played with these sets, choosing 2 colors of inks, 2 shades each for each card, and then simply chose elements from the stamp sets that I wanted to put together.  Lastly I stamped my sentiments and added some kind of little embellishment to each card.  

Next, I used some foil and one of Gina's Foil-Mates background sheets.

supplies: Peacock Teal card base, aqua foiled cardstock, Gina K Foil-Mates Vibrant Vines, Emerald Watercolor foil, laminator, Simon's Large Heart Doily die (retired) and foilable Sentiment Strip, adhesive foam squares to pop up heart

The watercolor foil is just gorgeous, but just about impossible to photograph!  I probably took 20 pictures, and this is the best I could get to show you the blues, greens, and gold in it.  I just added a die-cut heart and one of the little sentiment strips, which I foiled in the same.

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!  I can't wait to see what you all make this week!
