Anything Goes


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the It's Hip To Be Square Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
We will be back soon with the name of the lucky winner of the $50 Voucher
This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing Avery Elle 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

So I dutifully got some Avery Elle stamps ready for this challenge and then they did a new release with Caryn's Dear Santa Cat and I knew I simply had to have her, the cat not Caryn. There is a die to go with the stamps but its out of stock at Simon Says Stamp but I didn't actually use them for this card just fussy cut.

It was the last bank holiday here in the UK and out at my sisters and a BBQ I was suddenly running out of time for my card. My originally thought was to make my own background but noticed the Doodlebug Polar Pals had nice background sheet so I decided to use that with the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles and backed it with a bit of purple card so I could use the purple dotty paper that was in the paper pack, to paper piece her bow and hat.

I used the Avery Elle Sweet Scallop and the large Stitched Rectangle fits even with a backing mat. I had to used the sentiment that came with stamp and so it would stand out I used Versamark with some White embossing powder.

All that left was some snowflakes and keeping the CAS type card I used the small ones from Simon Stitched Snowflakes but with some fun foam although not bright white but white enough to stand out.

Tomorrow is officially the first day of Stamptember so make sure you check out the Simon Says Stamp Blog and Store for amazing new stamps and inspiration. I'm even tempted to stay up tonight so I can see whats new.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting
