Simon Says We're So Trendy!

Yup. That's what we are saying over on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog this week! It's all about trends! THREE of 'em, to be specific!


We are talking Neons, Hexagons, and Chevrons! (Or...as they are more commonly used...zig zags. For background on THAT little distinction feel free to read THIS RANT. Just sayin'.)


The challenge is to use one, two, OR ALL THREE of these fun trends on your card. Well, it seemed a bit too easy to go with just one for me, so I jumped in with both feet and incorporated a bit of each into my card for today! YAY!


Yup! TOTALLY fun to create card! I used the super fabulous Vogue Abode stamps from Paper Smooches. I stacked the hexagons to create the pattern on the right and then pieced the little table and stamped the phone right on it! SO FUN! I brought in the chevron with the K & Company Section Smash Tape that I love so much! YAY! And just a bit of Zing Neon Embossing enamel in some of the hexagons for added punch of color!

Let's Chat (detail)

I am also linking my card up to the CAS-ual Fridays Embossing Challenge!


And...of course, one lucky challenge participant will win a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Woot! Woot!

So, what are you waiting for? It's time to get TRENDY!!!!


You can find the products I used for my card in the links below!

  2. LOL! When I see your name with Chevrons...let's just say I understand where you're coming from! LOL!! Of course, you would put all three - what's a challenge when you can't do it all, right?! Great card - clean, bold and trendy :)
