Simon Says.......For a Special Lady

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


Our theme this week is "For a Special Lady", and we're playing with Altenew products.  You don't have to use these products to play along, but if you have some of their goodies, we'd love to see you using them.

I just received this Garden Picks layering die set in time for this challenge, so here's a card in my favorite colors.  This sentiment allows me to use this card for lots of occasions, Mothers Day, a birthday, even a wedding card!

supplies: white, 4 shades of blue, 3 shades of yellow, Green Apple, and Green Leaf cardstock, Hero Arts retired Circle Doily cling, embossed in white, Altenew Garden Picks dies, Wplus9 Doodle Buds sentiment, Doodlebug Tiny Heart sprinkle

I wanted to make a sort of nosegay of flowers and this Hero Arts Doily cling stamp from 2010 was the perfect pairing!

Next up, a card using layering stamps.  This one's for my Mom - she loves bright colors, and especially pink, so that decision was easy!

supplies: white, pink and black card, Altenew Beautiful Day stamps, Altenew Rose Petal and Tropical Forest mini ink cubes, Simon Stitched Alphabet and Mom & Dad Icons stamps, Stitched Rectangle die, adhesive foam strips

I stamped 5 of these lovely Beautiful Day flowers across a panel of white card stock, then masked them and added leaves from the same set.  The panel was trimmed with a stitched rectangle, matted in black, and then mounted on a pink card base.  

Then I stamped and fussy-cut my letters and popped them above the card, adding the black stamped sentiment on top of them.  

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!

Edited to add: I'd like to enter my first blue card with the embossed doily into The Flower Challenge #32: Embossing (Heat/Dry).

What a gorgeous bouquet, Lin, and the doily makes a perfect background for them. Thanks for sharing your card with us at The Flower Challenge.
