Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge “Simon Says Brand”

Well, our home office is finally almost completed.  We worked on the back patio last weekend getting the last of the boxes organized and sorted.  In addition, we had some time to buy new plants and get them planted, so the patio is almost “back to normal”.  So, I’ll have a nice view while I am working…

This week’s Monday challenge is to use Simon Says Stamp exclusive products.  I knew I had a lot of Simon Says Stamps but I was amazed at how many I had to pick from!  Since the challenge ends tomorrow I only had a chance to make one card but I had fun creating it!

I used the Simon Says Stamp set “Super Duo” and colored the “duo” with Prismacolor markers (some day I will own Copic, most of my Prismacolor pens are the older tips instead of the new brush tip so blending isn’t as easy).  The background is Tim Holtz Distress inks in Squeezed Lemonade, Spiced Marmalade, and Festive Berries.  I just used the sponge applicators and blended the 3 colors.  I also used the 3 colors to stamp the background of the words.  I fussy-cut the words out and attached it to a piece of black paper and fussy-cut around the edges.  Then I attached the words with foam squares.

The stars were punched out of gold glitter paper and I added clear Wink of Stella to the “Together”, around the words and a few accents on the duo.  Enjoy!

I started making cards in the 90's and have recently started creating again. It has been exciting to catch up on all the new techniques and tools that are now available! I also enjoy cross-stitching and any creative endeavor. I live in Carmichael, CA which is a suburb of Sacramento.
