Simon Says … anything goes


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing SPECTRUM NOIR  Products this week, you don’t have to use them but if you do have them we would love to see them used.

We have not one but TWO fabulous prizes to give away this week !!

Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store



Spectrum Noir are giving away one lucky winner a choice of 2 sets of Spectrum Noir Pencils ! Woo Hoo !!

Once again the design team have been very lucky and we all received two sets of fabulous Spectrum Noir pencils.   I chose the ones pictured above – Primaries and Essentials.

I stamped the poinsettia image (Pretty Poinsettias by Clearly Besotted) and used the red shades from the Primaries set of pencils.  I used dies from the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Shapes and Stitched Slopes and Hills sets (HOW did I survive without these before??) for the background pattern and the little flag shape.  I love how the red pops againts the crispness of the white card and the black twine ties the sentiment and centre of the flower together.

There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog , if you haven’t subscribed by email you may want to so you don’t miss out

  1. I think it’s beautiful, Caryn. It’s wintry and wonderful and I don’t think it needs a sentiment.

    The poinsettia is so pretty. Love the coloring and shading. Great touch to add the black twine around the banner.

  3. Gorgeous card Caryn!! That poinsettia is so pretty! Great design too!!


  4. Gorgeous! Beautiful coloring. I really, really like the way you’ve used the twine around and around. That’s a nice touch and I’m going to have to use it. 😉 Thanks for the inspiration!

    The picture does not do this card justice. One must enlarge it to get a closer look at the details. It is indeed a lovely card.

  6. Gorgeous design!! Just love how you used the stitched slopes die 🙂

    Simon Says Stamp!
