Welcome to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog day!! This is always the best week of the month because it is always our Anything Goes Challenge. Easy peasy, right? Just create something this week, share it on your blog or online gallery and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog. I love seeing the Anything Goes Challenge entries because there are always so many beautiful, interesting and unique creations!!
So this week, the design team is also spotlighting all kinds of twine, string, and hemp. Simon Says Stamp carries a ton of it and I scored big time when I found this Hemptique hemp cord. It matches perfectly with this paper pad from Simple Stories.
Simple Stories has great 6x6 paper pads. Not only do you get all of the regular sheets of paper but you also get some of the special papers which you can cut apart and use on your card like I did here with the journaling spot.
Here is a closeup picture of the hemp cord and some beautiful Prima flowers that matched very well to the paper too. Love the size of these flowers. They are great for cards. You can also see part of the stamp set that I used. It is a great mini stamp set from Unity by Jillibean. It has this great banner image and then three sentiment stamps that fit inside the banner image.
The butterflies were cut using a Martha Stewart punch and the small white flower is from Maya Road. I also added a small strip of Bella Blvd Washi tape and some gems from Kaiser Craft.
I can't wait to see your cards. Please make sure to link it up for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp Store. I have listed all of the supplies that I used to make my card below. Just click on the link and it will take you straight to the store!
