Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challange


This week it is ANTYTHING GOES 

Featuring products by Gina K Designs!

You do not have to use them to join in, but

 if you have some in your stash, we would LOVE to see them used.

Here are the products I chose for this challenge.

This super cute assortment I turned into this card.

It all starts with the background for the card.

I chose black cardstock for the card because I wanted the neon to stand out.

But how to make the black pop?

I used an old school cardmaking trick by taping

down the Gina K Designs Rounded Swirl Stencil to the card base.

      Using an ink sponge I added a generous amount of Versamark Ink on the black cardstock.

After gently pulling away the stencil, I covered the whole top with clear embossing powder.

Once the embossing powder was heat set, I had a super cool swirly base for the rest of my goodies.

Next up how I used the Thermo Web Neon Glitz Glitter Gel.

I stared by swatching all the colors on a piece of heavy cardstock.

This was a lot of fun!

The Glitter Gel was easy to use and fun to play with, I want to turn everything Neon!

I love all things round, so once the Glitter Gel was dry simply die cut a bunch of round shapes.

I have the Simon Says Stamp Nesting Circles, but you can use your favorite circle die.

I simply die cut the word three time and glued the pieces together.

This gave the die cut the dimension that I wanted for the front of the card.

I stared assembling my card by putting on the “HELLO “die first.

I then started placing my Neon dots all around until I liked what I saw.

I did decide to pop a few of those Neon Dots up with foam tape.

And that completes my take on ANTHING GOES

using some fun Gina K Design products.

I almost forgot the good news!
