I am so super, duper excited! I have been asked to be a guest designer over on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog this month.
This weeks challenge was "Something New".
From the day the Simon "Tiny Words" stamp set came out, I have wanted it. With the trend for tiny word banners big right now, this sets fits the bill. I started with a Neenah Solar white, 110lbs white card base. Stamping a group of the greetings in five different colors of ink, staggering them down the front of the card. I used my Tim Holtz Stamp Platform to make this step easier. From a scrap of navy card stock I die cut the candle three times. Then brushed Wink of Stella over the strip. The tassel was created with four colors of bakers twine and tied to the navy card stock. Finally I mounted it to the card front with foam tape.
One of the other things I like to do with a new stamp set is to see how far it can stretch, the variety of cards I can make with it. Simon Says Stamp Store is carrying a new brand of stamps. I have been in love with company for about a year. I took The Stamp Market's Birthday Wishes set and created the eight cards below.
Now head on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for a chance to win a $50 dollar prize from the Simon Says Stamp Store.
