Color Coordinates with Simon Says Stamp

Hello, friends! It's time for another fun challenge from the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog! I indulged in a Peanut Butter and Jelly iced coffee this morning (yes, you read that correctly) AND I am in a crazy good mood as it is a beautiful autumn day and the trees are shining with glorious color, SOOO...that being said... I might be a little chatty this morning. K? K. Glad we covered that little tidbit.

So... back to the challenge. This week we are working with COLOR COORDINATES! Every so often Shari puts together a wonderful bunch of colors for the Simon Says Stamp blog and offers great suggestions for pulling together products using those colors for awesome cards! The challenge this week is to use this fun Color Coordinates collection!


I am LOVING these fun Simon Says Stamp colors! Loving them! Obviously they work great for Halloween, but I do think they really would work well for so many kinds of card designs. LOVE!

Trick or Treat


I absolutely LOVE this adorable Costumed Pets stamp set from Simon Says Stamp. I combined it with some great Simon Says Stamp cardstock and Inks for this fun Halloween card. It makes me smile. It really does! I colored the image with Spectrum Noir pens...I really love those things. So easy to use and very affordable, too! The patterned paper is from the Fancy Pants Me-Ology 6x6 pad. It's fabulous, too. EVERYTHING is fabulous! Or Awesome. Or cool if you're part of the team... whoa....sidetracked there... K... moving on...

Trick or Treat Puppy (detail)


I added a bit of metallic string from May Arts along with sequins and some Glossy Accents on the puppy nose for accents. Just a few little things, but a HUGE impact! Love that! Seriously, though...I impulsively add glossy accents to puppy noses. It just seems WRONG to not have a shiny little nose on those adorable little critters!

AND...as per usual, Simon is generously offering a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store to one lucky participant in this week's challenge! All you need to do is create a NEW card based on the Color Coordinates shown above and link it up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog for your chance to win! You can link up to five projects, but they must be NEW. I hope you play along!


Have a Happy!!!

  14. Peanut butter and jelly coffee?!?! The real question is: How did it taste?
    Your card is absolutely adorable. I've often wondered what to do with that stringy ribbon that won't stay tied and I like how you've wound it behind the image. Really neat effect!
