Simon Says.........Summer Sunshine

wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!


Our theme this week is "Summer Sunshine" and my teamies and I are playing with Simon exclusive products.



supplies: white and kraft cardstock, various Doodlebug dps, Simon's Summer Flowers stamp set and Sunshine die, "sending" from Winnie & Walter Big, Bold Friends, My Favorite Things Wonky Stitched dies, sequins, natural twine

I used printed design papers to stamp my flower and cut my sentiment.  I added a little orange marker shading to the yellow gingham flower and surrounded the center with some sequins in coppers, oranges, and golds.

If you consider the floral motif above to be a feminine card, then I think this next one would be considered a masculine one.

supplies: white and aqua cardstock, unknown board dp, dotty gold dp,  tumbled glass, peacock feathers, and antique linen distress inks and blending tool, Simon's Hello Sunshine Frame and Sailboat dies, Zig red and beige markers to color sailboat, Memory Box Pinpoint Rectangle die

I die-cut the board paper first, then sponged on distress inks to simulate sky, water, and sand.  Next I die-cut the sun and sailboat out of the background, and then inlaid them back in.  To finish, I used just the sentiment section of the Hello Sunshine Frame.

Now it's your turn - I can't wait to see what you create!  Heidi has provided another $50.00 gift voucher
