Layer it Up


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

This week the challenge is

Layer It Up

We are showcasing Concord &9th  Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them 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

I didn't realise that the flowers on Concord and 9th You are Here stamp set  actually made a heart shape. I brought it because I thought the flowers were ideal for 3d layering.

I first layered up my flowers, I had to cut and layer the leaves first then flower by flower with so many parts it's easy to muddle them up. Then I had to decide how to make an actual card, I was inspired by the Splitcoast Stampers  sketch SC679 but used the leaves from the Simon Says Stamp Circle of Leaves.

I placed the leaves under the top and below the panels but in hindsight it would have been easier to use a bit of acetate. I used foam tape to lift the panels from the main card to help see the leaves.

I used the Simon Says Stamp Stitched Banners with their Birthday messages.

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

  4. Those pink flowers are gorgeous, Debby! What a beautiful design!

  5. This is a really beautiful card Debby and love the way you have coloured and layered the pink flowers and leaves, and the pretty leaves tucked under and around the panels look so pretty, and the flowers stand out against all the white surrounding space. x

  6. I wish I had half the patience you have when making your cards.....this looks like it was so much work putting the leaves of the flowers back in the right spots then raising up the white leaves also. It turned out gorgeous and well worth the time!

  7. A very pretty card Debby, love the design
