Simon Says Clean and Simple


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

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

This week the challenge is

Clean And Simple

We are showcasing CASual Friday 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! The lovely Michele Gross, owner of Cas-ual Fridays very kindly provided the design team with products to use for this challenge and we would like to say a huge thank you! x

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

CAS is my kind of style. Off late I have been more technique focussed. So it was refreshing to make a clean and simple card. I have used CAS-ual Fridays Sleigh Bells stamp set along with Bell Tags dies to make my card for the challenge.
For the background, I used Simon Says Stamp Carolyn stencil and distress inks in Candied Apple and Festive Berries sponged in ombre fashion from the edges fading to inside of the card.
The bell and the jingle bells are stamped with Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink and coloured using copic markers. They are then layered and adhered to the centre of the card front with foam adhesives to give dimension. To add to the festive look, I doubled the May Arts gold twine and tied into a bow on top of the bell cluster. The sentiment is from another CAS-ual Friday stamp set called Lovely Blessings. The sentiments in this set are nice and bold and love the script font on them. Finally finished the card with some Sparkly Clear sequins and brushed clear shimmer on the jingle bells. Here is a closeup

So now it’s YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
