Simon Says ,,,,, Keep It Clean and Simple


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the  Anything Goes Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is ,,,,,,,,


We are showcasing our very own super talented in house designer  KELLY PURKEY Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would LOVE to see them used :-)

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!
I think the whole team had a lot of fun using Kelly's products this week ,, I certainly did :-)

I will link all the products at the bottom , just to say I used a Simon Says Stamp Curved border to shape the card front and cut some Bazzill Robin's Eggcard too, making it around 1cm narrower than the front. I then used the triangles stencil and sponged some HA Tide Pool ink over the top and then spritzed with Studio calico Shine before removing the stencil.  I affixed a strip of 12mm sookwang along the edge and sprinkled with Ocean Spray Glitter Ritz.

I decorated the inside too :-)

and made a coordinating envelope ,,,, I LOVE the new Holiday Delivery Stamp and Die set and am using it to make an envelope for practically every card I make now !!  :-)
I used a sheet of  Kelly Purkey Alphabet Stickers for the 'My Friend' and the stamped triangles across the bottom is from a Kelly Purkey 'Like a Boss stamp set  :-)

Incidentally these fab stickers were in the November Card Kit, as was the Bazzill Robin's Egg Blue cardstock  and the Marshmallow cardstock that I used for the card base. 

Thanks for looking :-) Our new Designer in the Spotlight, the super talented Jess Larsen, and the DT have made some fabulous cards for you to see so please hop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to see them all :-)
