Simon Says: Flower Power

Hello crafty friends! It's Wednesday and that means it's time for a new Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! I hope you are all at home safe!

This week Simon Says: Flower Power, the design team is featuring always beautiful Altenew products! It isn't a requirement to use them but if you have them we would love to see them!

As you may know, the  Simon Says Stamp Store is accepting new orders, but have longer shipping times for the moment due to the coronavirus. With this in mind we have made the difficult decision to suspend the $50 voucher for this challenge.

We know that many people are staying safe at home and we would love it if you would continue to enter the challenges and have fun! We are all in this together!

For those of you who follow my blog and/or Instagram you know I love to color! But there is something so fun and simple using these Altenew Layering Flowers especially when paired with their  ink pads that are formulated to give you perfect shading.

I used the Sweet Rose Bouquet for this card, all of the products on this card are by Altenew with the exception of the cardstocks and sequins.

I started by stamping my flowers and die cutting them. I chose the Mega Hello die because it takes so much real-estate on the panel that the flowers frame it so well.  I then decided to do some selective stencilling using the same inks and the Altenew Deco Wallpaper Stencil.

I put it all together and added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins.

I decided to make a second card, and used the Ornamental Flower by Altenew with a mix of colors from their ink lines.  The hello sweet friend are also by Altenew.

The pattern paper was the color inspiration for this card,  it is by Craft Paper and it's called Eastern Influences I felt the ornamental flower complimented the paper so well.

Once again, I finished it off with the same sequins!
