Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – Photo Inspiration


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Thank you for joining us for the Thinking of You Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Photo Inspiration

and here is a fabulous mood board created for us by the lovely Jenn Shurkus 

We are showcasing Paper Smooches Products this week! You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge but if you have some we would love to see them used!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store



I struggled slightly with this as my first thought was Halloween, which Paper Smooches don’t tend to make Halloween products. But Instead I went with the gorgeous colours Jenn has picked.


I mainly went with Brown and Orange for this card. I stamped the image using some Memento ink and then used Prismacolour pencils to add some shading to the bowl.

I also added some gold and glossy accents to the details on the mixer. I don’t have the dies for this stamp set so I fussy cut the piece out.

I thought this patterned paper from Echo Park was a good fit for the challenge as it has all the colours.

I stamped and heat embossed the sentiment which i was going to trim down but kinda liked it going full across the card like this 🙂

To finish off I used some enamel dots.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Lovely card! The Echo Park paper is so pretty and I like how you positioned it on the diagonal too, and those enamel dots finish the card beautifully 😁. Wishing you a happy new week! J 😊
