Simon Says..........Flower Power!

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

Our theme this week is Flower Power, and the team is playing with Altenew products.  

My first card uses a large flower die called Peony Dream.

supplies: white, black, Green Apple, Green Leaf, and 3 yellow cardstocks, Peony Dream dies, Simon's Script Thanks dies, Sunny Studio Frilly Frame die, peacock feathers oxide ink and a blender brush, yellow enamel dot

HERE are some other cards I've made using these beautiful dies.

For my 2nd card, I went from this big flower to lots of teensy ones, using the Ditsy Print stamps.

supplies: white, black, and orchid pink cardstock, Ditsy Print stamps, Altenew Rose Petal and Green Valley mini ink cubes, Fine Frames dies, Simon's Painted Hello die, stamped sentiment from (retired) Avery Elle Simply Said Hello

I stamped the floral spray across my card panel multiple times, then chose 2 of the Fine Frames to add over it, along with my sentiment in black.

I've made several cards now with this Ditsy Print set, and they are very relaxing to work with.  

As you may know, the Simon Says Stamp store is accepting new orders, but will have longer shipping times, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  With this in mind, we have made the difficult decision to suspend our prize gift cards for now.  But we will continue our challenges each week, and we'd love for you to play along with us.  We're all in this together!
