Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge – For the Boys
Hi all and welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Thank you for joining us for the Animal Magic Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week, too!
This week the challenge is For the Boys!
We are showcasing Lawn Fawn 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. I’m using Lawn Fawn’s Fireflies Stamp Set, Die Set, Glow in the Dark Embossing Powder and the Perfectly Plaid Spring 6×6 Paper.
I took my strip of plaid paper and die cut a circle in the same place (the circle the firefly is on will be smaller), on my card base and strip of plaid paper.
I stamped my little Fireflies in Memento Black Ink and onto my Copic Xpress it Blending Card. Then,I colored up my little fireflies using Copic Markers.
Copics used – Y02, Y11, Y000, E33, B21, B24, B0000, R32, R30, N5
Then, I took my Versamarker and colored over the entire circle that the Firefly is on, front and back — then sprinkled my Glow in the Dark Embossing Powder and embossed both circles using my heat tool.
I glued the 2 circles together with the string in between. Then, I used my Scor-tape and taped the string to the back of the plaid striped paper so that the firefly circle is in the center of the larger die cut circle in the plaid paper. Now that you are all finished with the hard part — just glue down the plaid strip and then decorate your card front!
As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store

I guess I “need” those new plaids – what a pretty way to use them! Soft as spring!
Wow, your card design is so intriguing! I love the way that you layered the papers and the use of a scalloped die….so pretty!
