Simon Says Photo Inspiration!


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

Thank you for joining us for the Thinking of You Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher

This week the challenge is

Photo Inspiration

and here is a fabulous mood board created for us by the lovely Jenn Shurkus 

We are showcasing Paper Smooches Products this week! You don’t have to use them to join in with the challenge 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


I used an older but my favourite stamp set from Paper Smooches called Botanicals 2 to make my card for the challenge.

I took the colours from the photo inspiration. And I used distress oxide inks to stamped the images from Botanicals 2 stamp set. The colours I used are Wilted Violet, Wild Honey, Fozzilised Amber, Vintage Photo, Peeled Paint and Spiced Marmalade. I sponged distress oxide ink Salty Ocean on the bottom of the card front to add a bit of colour to make the sentiment pop. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Handlettered Encouragement stamp set stamped using Versafine Onyx Black ink. The green dots are from Simon Says Stamp Let Us Rejoice stamp set. I just added glossy accents randomly as dew drops. Love the rich colours and distress oxide inks are awesome to stamp with.

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
