Simon Says........It's Our TENTH Birthday!!

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


This week we are celebrating our TENTH birthday!  And we're inviting you all to join us in our celebration by making a birthday creation!  My teamies and I are playing with our own Simon exclusive products - you don't have to use them to play along, but if you have some, we'd love you to use them this week!

Here's my card:

I've been wanting to try mixing the older clear stamps with this new Floral Mix cling, as the cling is a mixing of the elements in the older clear sets.  So I stamped the background in VersaMark and embossed in white on kraft card then trimmed it and attached it to my white card base.  Then I white-embossed the rose and leaves onto blue and green cardstock, adding just a bit of shading with my Nuvo markers, cut them out and added the rose over its image in the background, then the leaves.  The image from the clear sets are not an exact match to the background, but very close, so my idea worked!  The Happy sentiment was die-cut 3 times and layered, then paired with my stamped sentiment.

Now it's your turn!  We have TEN $50.00 gift certificates

to the amazing Simon Says Stamp store for 10 lucky random winners of this week's challenge!

Gorgeous card Lin :-) I love the white embossing on kraft background, such a beautiful background for the stunning flowers and leaves, absolutely fabulous :-)

I can't remember exactly how long you have been with the challenge Lin, you'll have to tell me, but it is several years, and I would like to thank you for all of your help during all of this time! It is so lovely to have met you IRL too!! :-D

Hope you have a great week!
