Let Me Be Clear

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog


Those words are often uttered by one of my absolute FAVORITE politicians. To the point where it is totally SNL skit worthy, actually. The good thing, I suppose, is that she is a favorite of mine, so I usually agree with whatever it is that follows! LOL! However, this week, we over at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog are making those words a bit less political and a whole lot of CRAFTY! That's right! This week we want you to be CLEAR! Use something clear on your project, be it acetate, clear plastic, glossy accents, clear sequins, vellum, or some other fabulous clear thing-a-ma-jig. Clearly, it's going to be fabulous. (HA! See what I did there? Clearly. *sigh*)

The Design Team is using Clearly Besotted products this week. You don't have to use them to enter, but if you have some we'd love to see what you do with them! I used a super fun landscape die along with my clear element - vellum. (Okay, so it's probably more 'translucent' than actually CLEAR, but, clearly we aren't going to be that picky. Mostly because I said so. Clearly.) I mean, technically, I also used clear VersaMark ink for the embossing, so there is that.

Hello, friend


Ummm... why, yes, I do LOVE this card, thanks for asking! I don't know what it is about it, but I just love how it turned out. Bright colors, a fun design that was a totally different direction that I had originally set out for, but I totally love it and it's actually cooler than my first idea, anyway. Clearly. (Yes, I am going to keep doing that. I find it hilarious. Clearly. HA!) For the sentiment, I stamped and embossed in white and then stamped on the white strip in black and layered that over the embossed version to make it more interesting. And just kind of totally cool. For reals, though. Clearly.

Hello, friend (detail)


You can find the complete list of the fun stuff I used in the links below. Including those cute papers. And the die. And the stamps. And the ... well, clearly.



BUT, more importantly, now it's YOUR turn! Create something with a touch of CLEAR and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! DUDE, you could win a $50 voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store. For reals. You want that. I know, because I want that. Clearly.

Have a Happy, folks!
