Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge- Use Patterned Paper.


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

Thank you for joining us for the Emboss It Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

We will be back soon with the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher

This week the challenge is

Use Patterned Paper 

You might like to use paper from a pack but you can also choose to make your own patterned backgrounds. Whatever you choose to use we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

This week we are showcasing Doodlebug Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

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



Now I set myself a challenge with this challenge and decided to try and make a card where I could only use the contents of a paper pad….I cheated a bit and used some dies & ink (and of course sequins).

I used Doodlebug Designs Spring Things 6×6 Paper Pad.  and die cut the pink woodgrain effect paper using one of Simon’s Stitched Rectangle Dies.

The centre piece I cut from another piece of the pad and framed it using Lawn Fawn Stitched Square Frames dies, I die cut these from some Neenah and doubled them up to give some dimension.

For the sentiment I die cut Mama Elephants Smile Die from the same Neenah as the frames and used some Distress Oxide in Cracked Pistachio to give an ombre look.
To finish the card off I was going to add some enamel dots but decided to use some Studio Katia Crystal Fusion Sequins instead.
I was actually surprised how tricky I found it not reaching for stamps or stencils for this card but it was fun to do something different.
So now it’s YOUR turn !
