Simon Says.............Back to School

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


Our theme this week is Back to School, and we're playing with exclusive Simon Says Stamp products.  We'd love to see you using them, too, but no worries, you can play along with anything you'd like as long as you follow the theme.

I decided to make an encouraging card for someone who is going away to college for the first time.

supplies: white and a scrap of black cardstock, Simon's Amazing set and hearts from Hello Darling, squeezed lemonade, worn lipstick, and picked raspberry distress oxide inks, MFT Stitched Wonky Rectangle, black pearls

I stamped the large sentiment first in the center of my panel, then added some circle features and 2 hearts.  All were stamped in black ink and heat embossed with clear powder.  Then I sponged on my distress inks, The panel was then trimmed with the wonky stitches and placed on my white card base.  To finish I stamped and trimmed the small sentiment and added it along with 2 black pearls in the center of the largest circle element.

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!
