Stamp It (STAMPtember) - Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


This week at the 

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge


Featuring stamps and dies by our

 Very Own Simon Says Stamp product.

It is also the start of STAMPtember!

A month long celebration of all things stamping.

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.

Since I still have a bit of Covid brain fog my creativity is at an all-time low.

As I was cleaning up my crafty space, I came across my l

ittle basket of leftover paper strips.

Then the idea came that I should try and make a card with some of these strips.

Shuffling thru I found enough Fog, Smoke Gray 

and Doll Pink Simon Card Stock to cover the front.

First, I trimmed all the strips down to ¾ wide

Second, I used the Rectangle Basic Set by Memory Box

and created a card front with white card stock.

Third, I laid out the strips of paper on top of the card front till I got the placement 

I liked and glued everything down and trimming off the extra paper around the edges.

Now for the nerve-racking part.

I would use the Sunflower Garden Stamp Set and stamp over the stripes.

I carefully lined up my stamp over my card front in my Misti and held my

breath as I stamped my Sunflower.

Everything stamped well, and I love the contrast of dark and light.

I made sure my card front was good and dry before attaching

it to a card base made with white cardstock.

To finish my card, I added Silver and clear Sequins from

the Tiara Sequin Mix by Little Things from Lucy’s Cards.

A sentiment was created by using the Tim Holtz Idea-ology Sentiment Label Stickers

that came in the September Card Kit and fun foam to pop up the sentiment.

and that completes my take on STAMP IT
