Howdy, Y'all!

Hello, ya'll! Yup. I totally just said y'all. And, yup, it totally sounded ridiculous coming out of my Boston-girl mouth. BUT, I think it suits my card for the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge this week, so I'm going with it. This week our challenge is CLEAN & SIMPLE. Ummm.. OKAY! HA! That just so happens to be what I do. Like, all the time. Therefore, I am ON BOARD for this one, ya'll. (Bwahahaha! There it is again.) The design team is using Hero Arts products for our projects this week. You don't have to use them to join in, but if you have some, we'd love to see what you do with them!

I played with a couple of great background stamps along with the super cute Stamp Your Own Cactus set from Hero Arts for this card. I heat embossed the tiny flags background and then die cut the tag, layering the stamped cactus over the gold embossed background. Clean and Simple doesn't mean you have to ignore technique. You can still play with some of your favorite techniques for a design that is nice and clean and simple!

I used Hero Arts Shadow Inks for the stamping. I LOVE their shadow inks! They cover so well and you can even use the rock and roll technique, as I did on the pot, and the inks blend really nicely!

Now it's your turn! Head on over to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog to link up YOUR Clean and Simple design for a chance to win a $50 Gift Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store, y'all! (Okay, fine. I'll stop doing that. But, for REALS, you guys, it's pretty hilarious...if only you could hear me.)


Have a Happy, folks!
