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

Simon Says Thinking of You!

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

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

This week the challenge is

Thinking Of You

We are showcasing Memory Box 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 three dies from Memory Box to make a layered shaker card for the challenge.
I used Distress Oxide inks Cracked Pistachio, Salty Ocean, Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch and Color Shine Spritz Navy and gold to create four background panels using watercolor cardstock. I created one more watercolor background panel using Color Shine Spritz Coral. Then I used the second die from Hero Arts Infinity rectangle die to die cut them all out.
Then I die cut the three blue backgrounds using Memory Box Delicate Sea FernGoldfish Collage and Underwater Collage dies. And the Coral background panel using Coral Collage die. 
I then glued the coral on the three die cut panels. I adhered two die cut panels over the background panel using foam adhesives. Then glued the fishes inside on the background panel and some half on layering panels and rest hanging out inside. Hope I make sense. I also added some beads and sequins inside. On the last die cut panel, I adhered acetate sheet behind and flush glued this panel on top of the layers to make shaker element. For the sentiment, I just black heat embossed the sentiment from an older Simon Says Stamp called Friendly Flowers.
I really love the layers and the interesting colours on the layers.

So now it’s YOUR turn!

Simon Says Stamp – World Cardmaking Day Blog Hop!

Hello and welcome! Happy World Cardmaking day! I am joining Simon Says Stamp in celebrating our World Cardmaking Day today.

Here is my card for the celebration.

I have used An Arctic Christmas stamp set to make my card. I kept most of the scene in black and white and highlight just three penguins by stamping and watercolouring them, cutting them out and adhering using foam adhesives. Then panel is die cut using Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and the sentiment is white heat embossed on red cardstock. The completed panel is adhered on to the red card base.

There are 19 other designers from other parts of the world celebrating WCMD at Simon Says Stamp Blog. Check out everyone’s card and make sure you leave some love. Simon Says Stamp Blog has details on a giveaway. Make sure you drop by the blog and read the details on how to enter the give away.
