Simon Says…Thanks


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

Thank you for joining us for the  We’re Seeing Stars Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

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


We are showcasing our very own SIMON SAYS STAMP 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


The STAMPtember release had LOTS of gorgeous products that celebrate Thanksgiving and giving thanks in general.  I love the Clearly Besotted/Simon Says Stamp collaboration stamp sets and the Wreath set is just perfect for a Thank You card design.  I stamped and embossed one of the wreaths in gold on cream card (can’t get enough of gold at the moment!) and then die cut it.  The little pine cones are stamped in Avery Elle Truffle pigment ink and then highlighted (which of course you can’t see in the photo) with little touches of gold Wink of Stella ink.  I scored a few lines on the top part of the cream card base and then splatted a few spots of Heidi Swapp gold colour shine on to it.  I made a little bow out of some DMC fine gold thread for the wreath and also wrapped some around the top of the card.  I cut the Thanks Card Die  from kraft cardstock and then assembled everything together.


I hope you get a chance to play along with us this week – make sure you visit the rest of the design team for lots more gorgeous inspiration.

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
