Anything Goes


Time for new challenge on Simon Says Stamp Challenge 

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog

 and this week its
Anything Goes
The team is also using Avery Elle and Mama Elephant products but thats not a requirement for the challenge just the DT chance to show what amazing products Simon Says Stamps have in their store.


Now I'll be honest cos you can tell if I not but these are stamp companies are not the first ones I look for and they don't really suit my OTT cards and for some reason a CAS card feels like cheating!
But I certainly up for the challenge not sure I've ticked the boxes but the Avery Elle Hipster Hippopotamus is cute and decided to make a male and female card.


So with some Prima Sunny Days papers I paper pieced my Hippo and used the paper for the strip along the bottom. The scallop is Pearl Lace from Memory box and once put together with the sentiment it looked a bit plain. So added the hearts from Simon Says Stamp Exclusive Holiday Shapes dies on a bit of twine.


For the male card I again paper pieced my Hippo this time with the papers from Bo Bunny Surprise collection and I also used them for my fish tail banners. The strip down the side is using the Chainlink die from Simon says Stamp Exclusives it was a bit of experiment but now looking at it I'm have a bit of light bulb idea of using it and backing it with acetate may have to give that a go.


Now you know the drill to win the chance of this fabulous prize you have to enter the challenge with a new card no backlinking and you need to enter your post using the linky thing on the challenge blog. Also you need to link to the challenge in your post or you won't be eligible for the prize.
