Simon Says: No Stamps!

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge!

This week Simon Says: No Stamps Allowed! The design team is featuring fantastic Simon Says Stamp Brand Exclusive products :), it isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

Come join in on the fun, you have the chance of winning a $50 gift card to the fantastic Simon Says Stamp store!

I wanted to use my Clustered Leaves die, it is still one of my favorites and I have the newer outline version on my wish list!

I started by ink blending a mix of Picked Raspberry, Abandoned Coral and Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide Inks on a large piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. Once that was complete, I used my Distress Sprayer to add some droplets for texture. I die cut my panel with Clustered Leaves die and a second time from Vellum to stack them both as my focal point.

I then took some Lawn Fawn Vanilla Malt cardstock and used my Altenew Dotted Scales Debossing Cover die and die cut my panel. I then die cut the panel a second time using my Simon Says Stamp Frames Wafer die to be able to inlay the gold frame.

I took another piece of the Vanilla Malt for my card base and glued my panel elements to the base.

I intertwined both of the Clustered Leaves die and glued them together in spots where the vellum fell to the back so the glue wouldn't show. I glued the entire piece to my card base and cut the excess off.

I die cut a sandwich of Black Tonic Glitter cardstock, Fun Foam and Stick It adhesive and placed that on the panel.  To finish off the card, I added some Pretty Pink Posh Watermelon Jewels.
