Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is
CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHRISTMAS
Christmas is only 78 days away so if you haven’t made a start on your preparations then maybe now is the time to think about getting all of your holiday craft products out of mothballs and making a start! Keeping your cards CAS should cut down on the time it takes to make them, you can mass produce and it also keeps the postage costs down too, a definite winner!
We are showcasing MEMORY BOX PRODUCTS this week. You don’t have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store
So this week’s challenge is right up my street! I LOVE Christmas and I LOVE CAS! Not to mention I also LOVE Memory Box dies – what more could I ask for? I adored this Stitched Heart Trio die set as soon as I saw it and immediately pictured them dangling like little ornaments from the EVER-SO-USEFUL Woodland Branch die. I wanted a sort of rustic, country feel to the card to chose to use a cream card base with a Kraft panel and just to add a wee bit of interest used my favourite Avery Elle die, Wonky Stitches (how did I live before this die??). I cut the hearts from cream and red card and layered them with some foam adhesive and added some cord. It was a tad fiddly getting everything to stay in place whilst I waited for the glue to dry! The sentiment is from the Christmas Florals stamp set from Avery Elle and I embossed it in an off-white embossing powder.
