Paper Crafts Crew Challenge 258 – Simon Says Stamp Best Ever – September 2017 Kit

Welcome back to the Paper Crafts Crew Challenge! This week we have a sketch challenge:

I wanted to use the new Simon Says Stamp kit for this sketch. I love bright colors, and this kit certainly supplies them. I used several pieces of the Doodlebug Design papers supplied in the kit and drew my colors from them. Lookie!

STINKIN’ CUTE!! I love the little clouds and the rainbow! Originally, I had stamped and colored the heart stamp, but I decided that the rainbow would work better.

I used Copic markers to color it and added clear Wink of Stella over the top for some shimmer.

I stamped both parts of the greeting with Versafine Onyx and embossed with clear EP to add some texture. I love the way the curve of this greeting follows the rainbow shape.

I ended up adding the clouds to the Audrey Blue piece just to break it up visually. I used one of the Doodlebug Sprinkles from the kit below the Happy Birthday.

I moved the dots on the sketch because I felt they worked better there. I used 3 more of the Doodlebug Sprinkles from the kit for those.

The heart I colored originally didn’t go to waste! I added Wink of Stella to this piece too, fussy cut it out, and added it to the inside of the card.

Below is my list of products that I used, and I have used compensated affiliate links where they were available, as I now participate in affiliate programs for Simon Says Stamp, Amazon, Ellen Hutson LLC, Scrapbook.com, Gina K, Sizzix, and Blick Art Supplies. Stampin’ Up! links go to my BFF Wendy Weixler’s store, who does not pay me except in eternal friendship, but you can change to your favorite demonstrator if you prefer. Buying through these links costs you nothing extra and helps support my blog and my artistic endeavors, and I thank you.


Enjoy! Ta!
