Thinking of You


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Thank you for joining us for the Christmas Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too.

This week the challenge is

Thinking Of You

We are showcasing Memory Box 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!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

This card turned out so much better than in my head but I wish I could photo it better. The latest challenge is showcasing Memory Box my problem could've of been which one but decided on buying a new one and since I don't have any dragonflies so I brought Dragonfly Stems Left Corner die.

I first cut the corner in green and put it to one side while I dealt with colouring my card for the dragonflies and background. I got out my Oxides,

 I used Cracked Pistachio, Broken China and Fossilized Amber for cardstock for the dragonflies.

Worn Lipstick, Candied Apple and Antique Linen for the background and used Iced Spruce for the Simon Says Stamp Good Reading Background stamp but it was the second impression after randomly stamping first on a scrap paper.

I then cut twice for the dragonflies in the corner and fussy cut them out, first with the whole body then for the wings. I repeated this for the random dragonflies.

I had to trim a stem because it was over my sentiment which was stamped using the Misti and the Simon Says Stamp Happy Thoughts stamp set. To finish the card using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Shapes bundle and some Kaiser Rhinestone Black Gems for my Dragonflies.
