Anything Goes - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


This week at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Featuring stamps and dies by KITCHEN SINK STAMPS

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

But… If you have some of their product in your stash,

We would LOVE to see them used.

Here is my take on this challenge.

My husband loves sailboats, so I naturally I HAD to choose this stamp set.

I never used a multi-step stamp before, so I was a bit of a learning curb.

I decided my best approach was to lay out the stamp in order of stamping content.

This worked best for me, and I did not have to second guess what went next when stamping.

I did do a few tests stamps while I decided on my card design.

This helped me get comfortable with the stamp and decide in the colors of

Tumbled Glass and Chipped Sapphire Distress Oxide Ink.

I wanted a little something extra to the to put my stamped image on,

he Deckled edge on the Stacked Deckled Thinlits Die is always a go to.

Die cutting cut out my rectangle from white card stock 

and then I marked where I wanted to stamp my image.

I preceded to stamp my boat with the chosen colors using the number

guide provided on the stamp package.

Onyx Black Versa Fine Ink for the last accent stamp completed the look.

Once my boat was done, I turned my attention to the sentiment

Using the Onyx Black Versa Fine Ink and then Versamark and Carnation Red Embossing Powder.

Since the card was leaning in a masculine nautical direction, 

I decided to thumb through my paper pack stacks for something that would fit the theme.

I came up with Great Outdoors 6x6 Paper Pack by Honey Bee Stamps

The wonky nautical like stripes make a great base for my stamped design.

For finishing touched on my card I created a card for my

 base from Fog Gray card stock by Simon Says Stamp.

Once that was all adhered together, I added a bit of detail elements from silver stars

 I found in the Rainbow Wishes Sequin Shaker by Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

  And that completes my take on ANYTHING GOES!
