Simon Says Anything Goes!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  No Designer Paper Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too


This week the challenge is Anything Goes!

We are showcasing Clearly Besotted 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
I have started making Christmas cards and so any chance I get I make one. So for this challenge, I  have made a Christmas card using Clearly Besotted stamp sets and dies.

Anything goes CB//

I am liking using grey cardstock as background. So for this card, I have picked  Fog cardstock from Simon Says Stamp. I then white heat embossed the images from Cute Christmas Character stamp set which is an exclusive stamp set and die for Simon Says Stamp 2014 STAMPtember , on a watercolour paper and watercoloured the images. Then die cut the images using the coordinating dies. I adhered these images randomly  on the grey cardstock panel trimmed to the size of the card front. I stamped the smaller images from the stamp set to fill in the gaps. This is my background. 

For the focal point I simply black heat embossed the subway sentiment from Most Wonderful Stamp set from Clearly Besotted stamp set on vellum heavy weight cardstock and adhered on the card front using foam adhesives behind the arrows. Finally embellishing with Cranberry sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.
