Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Guest Blogger - Life is Beautiful


Hello Wednesday Friends!!

Sniff Sniff.  This is my last week as guest designer over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog.  It has been a wonderful opportunity to work with so many talented designers this past month.  And I just can't wait to meet next month's guest designer!

But for right now.......


This week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES and we are showcasing Penny Black products.  Penny Black has been such an inspiration for a very long time now.  Her designs are not only beautiful, but wonderful to color.  Here is what I did with this week's challenge using the Penny Black Petal Party Transparent Stamp Set:

I stamped and masked and then stamped some more to make my bouquet of summer flowers and leaves.  I colored all of the flowers with Copic markers and even cut out one and laid it over a stamped flower for extra dimension.  Can you tell?  It's the smaller red flower.  I couldn't resist using clear Wink of Stella on each flower and I love how it turned out.

To finish my card I added a gold lacy butterfly die cut to hover over my bouquet.

I've linked all of my supplies below for you.

And remember, you can win a great prize from Simon Says Stamp - a $50 gift certificate - so don't hesitate to enter.  All of the details are on the blog and you can see them and enter your creation right here.


You can see my card as well as all the other design team cards on the blog today..  You won't want to miss all the beautiful inspiration!  Thank you friends for supporting me this past month.  It's been a wonderful ride and I'm so happy to have been a part of this great team.

And don't forget to check out ALL the great products at Simon Says Stamp.
