Simon Says Stamp August Card Kit Card

Happy Friday, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!! 

I ma here with a card I just made using the gorgeous latest August Card Kit from Simon Says Stamp. This one is called 'Mandy's Flowers' 


I stamped the flowers 3 times so that I could layer them and then coloured with Copic Markers. I then shaped them using an embossing tool to make them look 'real' ;-) 



 To be honest I did think twice about finishing the inside as the  Bo Bunny Early Bird Papers are so pretty I really didn't want to use them! BUT, I have ordered another pack so crisis averted ;-)  I have also ordered the Mandy's Flowers Die Set to go with the Stamp Set, I know I will be using these A LOT! So pretty :-) 


and I made a matching envelope ;-) 


Thanks for looking!

Simon Says: Use A Die Cut and/or Punch




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


This week the challenge is 

Use A Die and/or A Punch 

We are showcasing Birch Press Productsthis week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would sure love to see them used!


The lovely folks over at Simon Says Stamp are generously giving away a FABULOUS $50 voucher to shop at the  Simon Says Stamp Store! All you have to do is take out your crafty supplies, make something following this week’s prompt, and add a link in the Inlinkz at the bottom of this post! You can join 5 times so you could have 5 chances to win! How AWESOME is that!! All winners are chosen randomly, so everyone has an equal chance to win! Woo Hoo!! Good Luck to everyone! The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!
Please pop by the challenge blog to see what our lovely guest, Lee Ann, and the DT have made :-)

I was really inspired by the Gay Pride Parades that are currently going on in many cities around the world. We need to stand shoulder to shoulder with the gay (LGBTQ) community to show our love and support :-) 

I used a gorgeous Birch Press Stitched Heart Set. I love that the stitches are on the outside edge of the die, perfect for shakers!!!  so of course I just HAD to make another shaker to share today! :-) 



As you know Gay Pride Flag incorporates rainbow colours so the Lawn Fawn Really Rainbow Paper Pack and Studio Katia Rainbow Sequin Mix were an obvious choice ;-) 


and I finished the inside 


I was inspired to make this card by this pic of my beautiful and fun daughter, Amy, taken at Gay Pride in London last weekend ;-)





So now it's YOUR turn to add a die cut or a punch to your creation and join in!

Do you use Instagram ?  If so please add  #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too.
