Simon Says ,,,, Thanks/Thankgiving


Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

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


We are showcasing our very own SIMON SAYS STAMP 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 made 2 cards to share today 

I have a lot to be thankful for. Not least to Heidi, Jason and all at Simon Says Stamp :-) I am so thankful to be on this team and to be part of the Simon family. 


First up 'Giving Thanks'

I used some lovely Orange Peel Card Stock and used the Coordinating Ink Pad to stamp the leaves.  For the background I used a zig zag stencil and some white embossing paste, I love the contrast and texture of this.
 Next up is ' Thanks Giving' :-)

Very similar to the first. I must admit I do love how these have turned out, even if I do say so myself :-) Of course, having fabulous products to work with makes it super easy :-)

So now it's YOUR turn ! Happy Crafting !!

There are fabulous Give Aways and inspiration from fabulous designers on a daily basis over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog , if you haven't subscribed by email you may want to so you don't miss out 

You have until Wed  8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in :-)

These are both elegant and beautiful. I really like the pattern created with the embossing paste...very cool idea. The orange and white create a lovely contrast and the die cut lettering is lovely and crisp. Great designs. Thanks for joining our Turkeys or Pumpkins Challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
