Use Plaid


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Summer Sunshine Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.
This week the challenge is
Use Plaid
This week we are showcasing Lawn Fawn 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

Technically I should have make this card for last week but I brought the Lawn Fawn Palm Trees (the crab comes in the set too) for this challenge not paying much attention to the actual challenge for this week!

Of course if you're making a card for a Plaid challenge the best paper to use would be Lawn Fawn so its win, win for me. I'm using their Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite pad and using two pieces to cover for the sky/sea and beach.

I cut out my Palm Trees out of scraps of Brown and Green card but if your supplies are running low you will find plenty here. There are coconut dies but as you can see I decided against them since I was in a bit of a hurry.

I edged my beach with the Simon Says Stamp Wavy Stitched Border die. I first used the die on my beach plaid and used the faux stitching line to cut off the scallop, then cut one in white card and stuck my beach onto it.

My card seemed to be missing something so I decided to use the Simon Says Stamp Sailboat die again using scraps in brown and white card. To lift the sail I cut down a foam sticky square and added it to the bottom of the sail but used a dot of glue at the top of the sails.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners for my sentiment and used the Simon Says Stamp Father's Day Finds. Finally some Googly Eyes for my crab, I use a drop of Glossy Accents to glue them into place.

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in
