Simon Says Something New!

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the  Party Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too


This week the challenge is Something New!

We are showcasing Wplus9 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

And this is my take on the challenge.

Happy Birthday to you card#2

What is new on my card? I have used a new stamp set from Wplus9 holiday release called Holiday Boughs. I bought this set and never opened it. So this is a new set for me. Then I tried a new style of stamping on my card. Its the stationery style stamping. May Park does this style beautifully. I have seen many of her videos and wanted to try it out. Mayholic in Crafts is her blog. Check out her videos. She is amazing!

I started with gold embossing the sentiment from Strictly Sentiment 5 stamp set from Wplus9. I masked a border around the edges of the panel. Then I started my stamping the images from Holiday Boughs, Botanical Bunch and Happy Mail stamp sets in black. I kept all the images inside the masked area. Some of the images are solid images and some are outline. I coloured the outline images with copic markers, adding a little shading. I then removed the mask. I then adhered this panel on to green card base. No embellishment what so ever. A one layer flat card - Stationery style! Here is another shot of the card.

I really love this one layer stationery style card. I will do a bit more experimenting with this style. Hope you like it.

So now it's YOUR turn, Happy Crafting
