Simon Says........It Must Be Love!


wed-newchallenge-header

Happy Wednesday!  Welcome to another challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog!



Just in time for Valentine's Day, our theme this week is "It Must Be LOVE!" - can't wait to see what you do with this!  We are playing with our own Simon Says Stamp products.

Simon has some really lovely stamps for Valentine's Day, and since this is my favorite holiday, I have 3 cards for you this week!  My first card uses one of my favorites: Roses for You.



supplies: white and Doll Pink card stock, Bristol PaperRoses for You and Really Like You stamp sets, Stitched Rectangle die, Tim Holtz Roses embossing folder, Zig Markers (Pink and Light Green) and water, adhesive foam squares

I stamped the heart of roses and 2 sets of single flowers and leaves on Bristol paper, watercolored them with Zig markers and water, then cut them out.  Next I stamped my sentiment onto a small die-cut panel before embossing it with the lovely rose pattern.  That was framed with some Doll Pink card stock, and then I popped my heart above and glued on the little roses.

For my next card, what better stamp for this challenge than the Love Is background?



supplies: white and Doll Pink card stock, Love Is background cling, VersaMark and white embossing powder, picked raspberry and candied apple distress inks and water, Tammy Tutterow's Prim Heart die, Small Love You die, Stitched Rectangle die, Doodlebug Rainbow Hearts sprinkles

I white embossed the text stamp, then washed the panel with a mix of distress inks before trimming it and attaching it to my card base.  I sponged the heart with picked raspberry distress ink and added some white enamel hearts, along with my die-cut sentiment.

And one more, which uses a pretty die.
