Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
Hello and welcome to another Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! Hopefully you played along with us last week for the Stamp It challenge, but if not, you can join us this week. Remember...every week there is a $50 voucher given away to spend at the Simon Says Stamp store and YOU just might be the lucky winner if you play along!

The party continues with the STAMPtember celebration on the Simon Says Stamp blog with DAILY surprises that may include special sets in collaboration with other stamp companies, sales, giveaways, special guests and more!

This week we are to create a CAS (clean and simple) design and we are showcasing CAS-ual Fridays Stamps, so if you have stamps from their company, we'd love to see you use them.  A big thank you to Michele Gross, owner of CAS-ual Fridays for generously providing each team member with products to use for this challenge!  I had so much fun using their Whole Shebang stamp set (love those unique sentiments)!  I smooshed some distress inks on the background then die cut with a Tim Holtz (Sizzix) diamond die.  I added some watercolored balloons (Simon Says Stamp Balloons Craft dies) with fine silver wire attached for the strings. 

Using the same stamp set and same balloon dies, I created this second card.  Instead of wire, I hand drew the balloon strings using a black gel pen.

For more inspiration by the rest of the design team, you can stop by the Simon Says Stamp blog.  We hope you'll play along as we'd love to see your creation in the gallery!
