CLICK HERE to go straight to the Kids Vacation Challenge


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

Thank you for joining us for the Fabulous Florals Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Let’s Go Wild

You could use a wild animal image on your creation, or you could go wild with wildflowers or with colors,  ! Just Go Wild and have fun, we will be looking forward to seeing your Wild Side!

We are showcasing Wplus9 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 my take on the “wild” theme is inspired by the fabulous “bouquet” series of floral stamps from WPlus9 – they’re stunning.  I went for the Ranunculus – you can’t argue with a word like Ranunculus, can you, lol?!  I stamped the flower in Versamark then heat embossed it in white.  For my choice of water colour medium I went with my Zig Clean Colour Markers – LOVE them so much, such strong, bold colours.  You can’t really see it, but I added a shimmer of Wink of Stella around the flowers rather than on them, just for a change!  I used the Custom Panels dies from Avery Elle to cut a curve on my water coloured panel and stamped the sentiment using the amazing With Sympathy set (also from Avery Elle) in Fog dye ink.  I finished with a few strategically placed sequins and some twine.


So now it’s YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

    Beautiful card Caryn, the flower ( not even going to try to spell ranunculus, it sounds like a spell from Harry Potter doesn’t it! ;-)) is gorgeous and I love how you shaped the bottom and added the sentiment, the whole design is stunning! 🙂
