Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Flower Power

It’s time for another Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! I am so thrilled to be in the Designer Spotlight for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge .

This week’s challenge is themed Flower Power and we are featuring Altenew.

Be sure to head to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge post for more details how to enter and link up your cards! We’d love for you to play along.

It’s no secret I love Altenew products. For my card today, I chose the new Statement Flowers stamp set. It is the perfect image for watercoloring. I like to heat emboss my images in Gold embossing powder. It helps me contain my watercolors and I just love the look of the Gold.

I used the Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers for my watercoloring. Once the image was dry, I ran through my Spellbinders Platinum 6 diecutting machine using the coordinating die.

To add a little more interest to the background, I stamped the new Pinstripe Background from Concord & 9th onto white cardstock with Black ink. I am so glad I picked up this background stamp. It’s so versatile and so striking.

The sentiment I’m using is from the Sentiment Strips 2 stamp set from Altenew. I heat embossed it onto Black cardstock with Gold embossing powder to tie in the Gold from my image. After trimming down, I added to the card with foam squares.

I hope you’ll join us this week! Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge so we can see your entries.

As you may know, the  Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.

We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together!
