Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

Hello blog friends! I'm so excited to share with you that I'll be Guest Designer for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for the month of September!  I'm still doing a happy dance! There will be some fun challenges coming up, so you don't want to miss out on the chance to win a $50 dollar gift voucher to spend in the Simon Says Stamp store.

This is an especially exciting month at SSS since it's their STAMPtember Stamp It celebration!  Throughout the month they will have a surprise for you EVERY SINGLE DAY!  

Stay tuned on the Simon Says Stamp blog for daily updates. There are exclusive collaborations with other stamp companies this month that are out of this world!! You may not have any of the new Simon's Exclusive Products yet, but we'd love to see you use Simon products for the Wednesday challenge if you have them.

My card uses the new Ornate Leaves stamp set that was released on September 1st (I'm really loving the elegant look to these fall images!).  I love all the warm, earthy colors of fall and knew right away I wanted to stamp a collage of gold, rust, olive and orange leaves.  I gold embossed the medium sized leaf image on a golden yellow scrap of cardstock, fussy cut and popped it with foam tape over some jute twine loops. guessed it!  I couldn't stop with just one card.  Using a fave corner collage layout, I watercolored the background using Mijello Mission paints - Yellow Ochre No. 1 and Greenish Yellow.  I then stamped the Fall sentiment multiple times with stamping off up to 3 times after inking it up with a brown dye ink.  I then splattered the base with some dark brown paint and stamped several green tendrils.  The pumpkin and leaves were fussy cut and popped with foam tape.

I hope I've inspired you to join in the challenge this week!  Good luck with the possible winning of the $50 gift voucher to go shopping in the Simon Says Stamp store!
