Red/White and/or Blue - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


The theme is RED/WHITE and/or BLUE

Featuring stamps and dies by AVERY ELLE

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.

First, how cute is this Peek A Boo Boat Stamp Set!

To get all this cuteness on a card it had to be slimline size.

Using the Slimline Nested Rectangles by Simon Says Stamp

I create a card base with Audrey Blue card stock.

Knowing there was going to be A LOT of blue on the card

I used Dylusions White Linen Ink Spray to break up some of the color in the background.

I used the Slimline Stitched Hillside Boarders by Lawn Fawn

and Soft Navy card stock to create “waves”.

I lined up my “waves” the way I wanted and attached them to the card base.

I also embossed on my sentiment using White embossing powder.

Next, I stamped, colored, and my images using my Spectrum Noir markers.

I kept the red white and blue coloring flowing by adding shades of teal

and I even managed to sneak in a pop of yellow on the boat flag.

After die cutting all my colored images out, I started 

the placement of everything on my card base.

I propped up items here and there with fun foam as needed.

For a final touch I painted on some sparkle with a Spectrum Noir Clear Overlay Pen.


That completes my take on RED/WHITE and/or BLUE
