Simon Says Stamp Challenge Cards


Today's cards are for the Simon Says Stamp Monday and Wednesday challenges.  I really like doing these challenges because it gets me to play with my stuff!  :)  I hadn't played in a few days so it felt good to create!

This card is for the

where we are to create something with clouds. I struggled with this card for about an hour, cutting butterflies from my Cricut, almost trashing the entire card and forgetting about the challenge.  Then I just grabbed an old piece of basic grey patterned paper and the so cool Memory Box butterfly die and it worked.  :)

Here's a close up of the butterfly.  I just LOVE this die:

This next card is for the 

where we are to showcase Clearly Besotted and/or Lil Inker Designs products.  I used heart dies from Lil Inker Designs and a background stamp from Simon Says Stamp:

I also used silver pearl embossing powder and I LOVE the effect I got.  Then I colored the cardstock in red and the hearts were resisted. Very cool.

As always, thanks for visiting!  Be sure to follow for future cards!! :)


  1. I love both of these beauties, Kathryn! That delicate butterfly looks stunning backed by your beautiful clouds and that sweet embossed heart background makes your valentine a real standout!

  2. Both cards are so beautiful. I especially love the pretty background and the butterfly on the first card. Thank you so much for sharing with us at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. :)

  3. These are so pretty! I love the hearts the best...gorgeous inking. Thank you so much for joining us in the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge this week :)
