Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog's newest challenge is called Photo Inspiration. This week we want to see what kinds of card you can make inspired by the photo of poppy fields below. I chose to be inspired by the color scheme but you will see many others interpretations in the design teams cards on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog.
The Authentique Wonder Papers were the perfect red and green colors for my Christmas card. I just got this wonderful new Glittering Tilda stamp from Simon Says Stamp and knew they were made for each other. I colored Tilda with my Copics and then matted her on a scalloped rectangle mat that was cut from a Spellbinder die. The other die I used is from Memory Box and it is called Savannah. It is amazing. I just got it from Simon Says Stamp and one other as well. I am so please with the way it cut and the delicate twists and turns it has. Simon Says Stamp carries all of the Memory Box dies so you might want to check them out. Really pretty stuff!!
You might have noticed the pretty poinsetta flower that I used. These are from Petaloo and they are amazing. So soft and velvety with just a hint of sparkle. The other flowers around it is a Petaloo flower as well. The red cardstock stamp is from the Authentique Tabloids labels. I pop dotted it for some dimension.
The sentiment is from Hero Arts and it is from a set called Holiday sayings. I can tell you that this set is one that I will use over and over again. So many great sayings in wonderful fonts and sizing perfectly for cards.
Here is a close up of Tilda. I just love her braids reaching all the way to her feet. I also added a little bit of sparkle to the tinsel that she is holding with some Stickles. Love the way it shines.
