Butterfly Pair


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Anything Goes 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

Fabulous Florals  

We are showcasing Hero Arts 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 in theory you would have thought that a challenge using a company that makes beautiful flower stamps I would have made sure I had a new one to use but I fancy the Hero Arts Butterfly Pair.

That means I had to work out what to use for flowers and I'm pleased to say I had a reason to use the new Simon Says Stamps Hydrangea Petals die and the smaller flowers are  Simon Says Stamps Mini Flowers and Leaves die.

For my leaves I used the Simon Says Stamp Look for the Miracles stamp set and used the leaves and carefully cut them out. The papers I used for the leaves are Lets Polka in a Meadow from Lawn Fawn simply because they were green and still on my desk from last week! The centres of my larger flowers are the Lawn Fawn Mini Snowflakes.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles dies and the butterflies are coloured with Prismacolor pencils. It was has I was used the die to cut them I realised that they didn't cut completely out but a crafty snip with scissors and some Hero Arts pearls soon hid the evidence.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

Such a pretty card Debby and I love the layered stitched rectangles and the pretty pink layered behind, and the same colour pink for the flowers, and then the white embossed leaves to frame them. x
