Simon Says: Knock on Wood!

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: Knock on Wood! The design team is featuring Tim Holtz 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!

The one thing about this lockdown is that I have had a chance to go through my older stamps and dies and play with products that I have forgotten about or never even had a chance to use! I have always loved these Crazy Dogs by Tim Holtz and I do turn to them often but the Crazy Thoughts bubbles have never been inked! This was the perfect project to pull them out.

I always need a good masculine card and I often give dog cards from my two crazy dogs, I am pretty happy with the way this turned out.  Be a good one in my stash for my husband or Dad from the pups :)

The Moda Scrap woodgrain paper chose the color scheme for me. Once I picked my pattern paper, I stamped my dog and bubble and colored them in with my Copic markers.  Once that was complete, I die cut my Neena panel using a Lawn Fawn Stitched Border die and cut off the excess. 

I placed everything on my card base using Foam Tape for the panel. I covered the whole panel with the 3M foam tape because I used Gossy Accents and it helps keep the warping minimal. 

The "stick" for the dog is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set on Woodgrain paper and the secondary sentiment is also from two Lawn Fawn sets.  I thought it fit super well with the speech bubble.  Finally, some candy hearts by Button Galore.
