Happy Wednesday, creative-peeps! Welcome to Work It Wednesday for May 2018!
In case you’re wondering what ‘Work It Wednesday’ is, let me explain: On the third Wednesday of every month (or towards the end of the month 😉), we want to see what you’re creating! The Simon Says Stamp community is so very talented, and we want to see more of your cards and projects every month.
We thought this would be a great way for all of you to ‘stretch your creative muscles’ and share what you’ve been working on. So we’ll give you a little challenge each month, and you’ll have until the following month to share what you’ve made. Please limit entries to 3 per month.
Each month we’ll pick a few random participants to win a Simon Says Stamp grab bag! YAY!
The projects and cards that were shared for April were SO AWESOME! We were thoroughly inspired by all of your creative ideas, and we look forward to seeing what you make for this month’s challenge!
The following three participants were randomly chosen to win a goody bag from Simon Says Stamp:
CONGRATS TO OUR WINNERS! Please email Samantha@SimonSaysStamp.com with your mailing address and she’ll get your prize sent out to you.
Have you seen the calendar lately? ☀️ SUMMER is only one month away! We want to see how YOU are inspired by sunshine and summertime (psst, have you seen our new Sending Sunshine release??)! Once you’re done making your summer-inspired projects, make sure you link your creations below! Please remember to limit entries to 3 per month.
What are you waiting for crafters? WORK IT! ;)
Hello, all! Kristina here with some more inspiration using the June 2018 Card Kit! The patterned papers from Moda Scrap in the kit are gorgeous, right? I thought it would be fun to use the Beautiful Flowers stamp set from the kit with the papers specifically.
I stamped the large floral stamp directly onto one of the papers, and then stamped the individual flower stamps on a different piece of patterned paper. This gave me the opportunity to have the flowers be different colors!
I cut each flower out and then lightly shaded them using markers from Tombow’s Pastel set of Dual Brush Pens. The markers in this set of markers were perfect for the colors included in the patterned paper! I also scribbled the green and yellow shades of markers onto a slick surface and picked up the colors with the N00 markers (clear marker in the set) to shade the leaves on the larger stamped image.
I hope you enjoy the video today! Thanks for stopping by! You can subscribe to future card kits HERE.
