Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge: Stamp It

Just a quick post to share my card for the SSS Wednesday challenge. I don’t like posting so close to a new challenge, but Irma messed up my plans…

The manufacturer highlighted this week is Simon Says Stamps, in honor of Stamptember (a huge, month long stamp celebration SSS hosts). 


I used SSS Floral Bliss, which is a large, gorgeous floral image. I stamped it with Versamark ink on watercolor paper and heat embossed it in white. I used Distress Markers to watercolor (I’ll describe this more in my The Daily Marker 30 Day Challenge post on Friday). 

The sentiment is from the same stamp set and was stamped in Versamark ink and heat embossed in gold on vellum. I used a MFT Fishtail Banner to cut it out.

I added Nuvo Drops to the centers of the orange flowers and some of the sequins from my Hero Arts August kit.

Speaking of my Hero Arts kit, it’s still being held in protective custody by the USPS. It hasn’t even left California. I hope they release it soon. I actually have lots of goodies to share with you, all in protective custody (I ordered some a couple of items from Concord & 9th’s September release). 

Back on topic, I used a metallic Neenah cardstock in Champagne Pearl for the card base. 

I really am enjoying the 30 Day Coloring Challenge. It has me pushing the envelope as far as techniques go and also challenging me find new ways to use my supplies. 

Back to Hurricane Irma. The more we learn about how the rest of the state was impacted, the more grateful I am, and the more my heart breaks for those devastated by this storm. I’m also so proud to hear all the stories of people helping each other, just like we heard in Houston. The number of workers pouring into our State to restore power chokes me up. Please keep everyone effected by Irma and those continuing to recover from Harvey in your thoughts and prayers! 

Thanks for stopping by!
