Simon Says Stamp Wed. Challenge


It's time for a new challenge with a chance to win a $50 gift voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp Store.

This week's challenge is


Use the above inspiration board and Paper Smooches products if you have them.  If you don't own any Paper Smooches products, that's okay; you can still enter the challenge using the inspiration board above.

Here's my card:

To make the background I first blended on some Picked Raspberry, Rusty Hinge and Scattered Straw Distress Inks then embossed the paper with the Sizzix Houndstooth embossing folder.

The moon, cat and hat, greeting, and candy corns are from the Lawn Fawn Spooktacular clear stamp set.  I wanted this card to be non-scary for my three year old nephew, so there's no bats or ghosts on the card.

 I also used these Impression Obsession dies:

IO DIE343  Hill Landscape Layers
IO DIE066 Leaf Clusters
IO DIE219 Wide Tree

Subscribe to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog to play along each week for your chance to win the $50 gift voucher and to see the other Design Team's creations.
