Thinking of You - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Here at the

This week we are THINKING ABOUT YOU

Featuring Products by TIM HOLTZ

You do not have to use the featured company to join in.

If you have some of their product in your stash,

we would LOVE to see them used.

Here are the products I used for this challenge.

I also used a few items from my stash.
Here is my take on the challenge.

 I stared my card by pulling out some of my go to items

Memory Box Rectangle Basic Set


Stitched Rectangles by Simon Says Stamp

These dies along with some kraft and white card stock from

my stash makes the perfect background for my funky flowers.

To create the flowers, I started by limiting myself to JUST FOUR

Distress colors, Fossilized Amber, Crackling Campfire, Mowed Lawn,

and Brushed Corduroy. I die cut out all my flowers with

 #110 cardstock, and the Funky Floral Large Thinlits Dies.

Then I grabbed my dauber and just started pouncing my color on.

As you can see, I had a good inky time with these flowers.

Next, I chose a sentiment from the Simon Says Stamp Thinking of You Sentiment Strips.

I am so glad that I got a set of these sentiment strips,

 they were a quick and easy solution to help finish this card.

With the sentiment in place I turned my attention to assembling my flowers

 and adding them to the front of my card.

I tried to keep the colors as balanced as I could.

 I did prop up one of the flowers with foam tape for a little dimension.

I also kept the top of the leaves loose so that there

 is some movement when you pick up the card.


That completes my take on THINKING OF YOU
