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


This week the challenge is 

Anything Goes!

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

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!

The Design Team is looking forward to seeing your creative makes and will pop around to visit you ASAP!

It's Thi's last week with us in the Designer Spotlight and we would like to say a huge thank you for all of your creations over the past month. It has been a real pleasure to have you along with us :-)

Please pop by the challenge blog to see what the lovely Thi and the DT have made :-)

I used Mandy's Flowers Clear Stamp Set  and Coordinating Die Set and made a card and matching envelope.


I always try to buy the dies to go with stamp sets as I really dislike fussy cutting, but this die is essential with this stamp set I would say, I would never have manages to fussy cut around those flowers so neatly ;-) 

For the brick wall background I made a reusable stencil using a Tim Holtz Mixed Media 3 Die and Acetate, I have used this stencil several times now! I blended Fired Brick Distress Oxide Ink over the stencil and then pounced a little Gathered Twigs over to top to add some contrast, they look like real bricks don't ya think!! ;-)


I coloured with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils, the pencils add  a little extra depth of color I think. 


and I finished the inside. I didn't add a sentiment as I am not sure what I will use this card for 




So now it's YOUR turn to get out your supplies, make whatever you fancy, 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.

Gorgeous "just because" card, Lols! I love all the dimension and the way you partially stenciled the bricks is such a cool effect! :)

Oh how beautiful is this! I love pastoral mood of this card, Lols. Your bright colors really make me feel brighter. Gorgeous inside as well.

I love the freshness of this card. Your coloring and eye for details is amazing! The brick wall particularly caught my eye. I admire how you take care of the inner panel as well with all your cards. xx Ankita
