Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge : Anything Goes

Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge

This week the challenge is

Anything Goes

We are showcasing Doodlebug Products  this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some we would love to see them used.

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 gift Voucher  for the Simon Says Stamp Store  to one randomly selected winner !

Here are my cards for challenge inspiration. 

The first card is featuring Sweet Summer 6×6 Paper Pad from Doodlebug.

I started by stamping Breakfast Buddies and Foodie Friends Stamp sets from Simon Exclusives on  80lb Neenah White using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I colored the images with copic markers then I cut them all using my Scan N Cut, or you could use Breakfast Buddies Coordinating Dies and Foodie Friends Coordinating Dies.

Next, I trimmed a piece of small dots pattern paper from Sweet Summer pad into 3.25×4.75 inch then I made 6 circles out of it using Repeating Circles Dies
I foam-mounted the circles panel on one of my previously colored panels, then I placed stamped images in the circles by using foam tapes
Sentiment from Breakfast Buddies was heat embossed on black card stock in white.

Next, I chose big rainbow- stripes pattern paper and tan mini palm trees pattern paper from the same Sweet Summer Pad, and trimmed them to be used as mats for my foodie panel. I used Simon Says Ivory Card Stock for card base. As a final embellishment, I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Jewels.

The second card is for featuring Fairy Tales 6x6 paper pad and Pen Pal Sticker from Doodlebug.
I diecut Scalloped Square Tag out of 110lb Neenah White Paper, then simply foam mounted Pen Pal Sticker on the tag. I also adhered two mini heart stickers that were included in the Pen Pal Sticker.

I chose two pattern papers from Fairy Tales 6x6 paper pad, cut them using Wonky Rectangle Dies. I further cut only mid part of pink dots paper then I adhered it on the rainbow hearts panel. Scallped tag was then put onto it with a little bit dimension using thin foam adhesives.

Sentiment was chose from Foodie Friends Stamp set and was heat embossed on black card stock in white. Then I cut it as a long strip and then I foam mounted it under the tag.

I embellished the tag and the card by adding more details including pink eyelet, ribbon, twine, and Sparkling Clear Sequins.
