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 use red and pink as the main focus of the card.  Done!  Since Valentine's Day is Saturday, this was easy. :)  I used a new background stamp from Unity and the hearts were scraps left over from another project.  I also used my distress inks.  Love this card!

This next card is for the 

where we are to showcase Paper Smooches stamps!  I only have 2 sets, so I thought I'd use this cute fish stamp and the adorable sentiment, birthday fishes!  :)


I spent a good deal of time watercoloring the background....and the 'bubbles' are glossy accents.  :)

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

  5. Love that valentine's card stamp - beautiful cards!

  6. Loving your cards! The embossed BG on the first is lovely! The layout is really nice too! And, love the watercoloring you did as a backdrop for the wonderful fish card!

  7. What a great little pair of cards! I am on the Monday challenge team, but your Wednesday card entry was so cute that I couldn't help looking at it, too! You did a great job on both. What I like about your first card is how it incorporates those traditional Valentine's Day colors, yet you've given it a fresh look by pairing it with that fabulous pennant and by doing that gorgeous ombre effect on the background. Really lovely color blending! Thanks so much for sharing your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

  8. I love that Valentine...especially the background!

    add a little glimmer to your life...sparkle & shine! *~*
