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

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


It's Anything Goes week, and we are highlighting Tim Holtz goodies!  We'd love to see you using them, too, but you can use anything  you'd like, as long as you follow the theme. 

I saw these lace frames being used at the Simon Monday challenge earlier this year, and wanted to play with them too.  These frames do NOT disappoint!  There are 6 different ones in the package, in 3 sizes, and the lace details are subtle and perfect to build on.  Nice and substantial, too. 

supplies: white cardstock, Tim Holtz Idealogy Lace Baseboard Frame, Flourish embossing folder, twisted citron, cracked pistachio, evergreen bough, salty ocean, and blueprint sketch distress oxide inks, Perfect Pearls powder, Small Talk stickers, Butterfly adornment, Memory Box Daisy Silhouette dies, mustard seed and mowed lawn distress inks, natural twine

I used one of the smallest frames for this one and mounted it onto an embossed panel that was sponged with lots of oxide inks, then wiped with perfect pearls.  Then I just embellished my frame with a bouquet of daisies, a metal butterfly and sentiment stickers.  

I used a medium-size frame for my 2nd card. 

supplies: white and Fog cardstock, Tim Holtz Idealogy Lace Baseboard Frame, Funky Florals 1 and Funky Foliage dies, distress inks to color, sentiment from Simon's Leafy Frames, Doodlebug Tiny Heart sprinkles, glue dots and adhesive foam squares

 I just die-cut lots of flowers and leaves from Tim's Funky Florals and Foliage sets, sponged them with distress inks, and then arranged them around part of my frame.  

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!
