Simon Says: Floral Frenzy




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

Before moving on to this weeks challenge we would like to say a sad farewell to Virginia. Virginia is stepping down from the team and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your dedication to the challenge over the past few years! It has been a great pleasure to have you with us and we are going to miss you LOTS x x

This week the challenge is

Floral Frenzy


We are showcasing Altenew Products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have them we would love to see them used.


As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

Please pop by to see what the lovely Vicki and the DT have made, bloomin' beautiful blooms!! :-)




I started by smooshing some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide Ink onto a craft mat and dipping the bottom right corner into it. I then used the same ink to splatter some ink across the card and then splattered some Black Marble Shimmer Spray over it too. 

I love that the little set of ink pads takes all of the hassle out of deciding on which colours of  inks to use! 


I used Smoke Grey Card and a banner die to cut the shape and then used the Misti to stamp all the sentiments. I have to say I do love this Altenew Crisp Black Ink, I tested several black inks on this stamp and this one definitely gave the most crisp result.


and I finished the inside 


I decided to use my Mini MISTI and make a whole set of cards as a gift for a special friend ;-)  The MISTI is great for mass production! First of all I die cut the shapes out of some scrap card (in this case outdated postnatal record cards ;-))and then once you have the first stamp in place it is so easy then just to place the die cut pieces in one after the other, ink and close,,, super easy :-) 






So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting

Your set of cards is fantastic, and I love not only the coloring of the flowers, but also the spattering technique! Each is similar while each is a wee bit different! I love that idea :)
