Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes

Hello!!!! Welcome to another Simon Says Stamp challenge! This week’s theme is ANYTHING GOES, so no excuses people! 🙂 The Design Team is working with Bottle Cap, Inc and/or Authentique products this week!!!! Here is what I created:


I love the idea of using a bottle cap for the center of a flower! Do you recognize that flower? It is actually the rolled flower die cut from My Favorite Things. I just decided to NOT roll it and mount it directly onto my card. The outside layer of the flower is popped up with foam dots. Now, let me talk about the background. I came across this super cool new product, embossing paste! Oh my. Love love love. Here is a close up:


I took one of my background masks and applied a thick layer of the embossing paste and voila, this super cool texture! LOVE! I’ll be doing a quick video on it this week.

The sentiment both on the outside and inside is from this super cool new set from Simon Says Stamp! Love it. It is so fun! All the cute inside sentiments make me laugh.


The wonderfully amazing and sweet Heidi is offering up a $50 gift certificate to the Simon Says Stamp online store!!!!!! HELLO!!!!!! That’s awesome!!!

Be sure to head on over the Simon Says Stamp challenge blog and take a look at the rest of the design team inspiration and play along with us!!! Be prepared to have your socks blown off because they are all amazing! I am so lucky to be a part of this team!
