Simon Says Use Pattern Paper.

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

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

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

This week the challenge is

Use Patterned Paper 

You might like to use paper from a pack but you can also choose to make your own patterned backgrounds. Whatever you choose to use we will be looking forward to seeing what you create!

This week we are showcasing Doodlebug Products. You don’t have to use them for the challenge but if you have them we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.

My take on the challenge here is to use paper piecing as the technique. I used Gingham Linen Rainbow Petite 6×6 pattern paper pad from DoodleBug.

I used the six colours of pattern paper on my card. The neutral grey for the background panel. I used the new Simon Says Stamp Wonky Stitched Rectangle die and I die cut a circle in the middle of the panel. The flowers and leaves are from the new Simon Says Stamp Summer Flowers stamp set. I stamped the image on yellow, green, red and orange pattern paper from the Doodlebug 6×6 paper pad. Then I hand cut them all out.

On the card front, I adhered blue pattern paper with linen side facing up. Then adhered the grey gingham panel using foam adhesives. Then I tucked and adhered the flowers and leaves around the edges of the circle die cut with a few of the images overflowing out. Some of the images are adhered flush with glue and others using foam adhesives. I added details using white gel pen and Nuvo Moring Dew crystal drops. The sentiment is from Simon Says Stamp Thoughtful Messages stamp set. I white heat embossed the sentiment, hand cut the birthday sentiment and trimmed the smaller sentiment and adhered as shown.

So now it’s YOUR turn to get your lovely papers out and create something beautiful!  Happy Crafting
