Simon Says Stamp - Stamptember

Today I have a card for you showcasing several Simon Says Stamp items. As you may know, this is Simon Says Stamp's annual Stamptember celebration. They have a new release of their own products and exclusive releases with various stamp companies. So far, they've shown us releases from Lawn Fawn and Art Impressions. If you are new to Simon Says Stamp, you can hear the story of their beginning in this YouTube video by owner Heidi Crowl. I had the privilege of meeting Heidi at Stampaway USA last month. What a wonderful and gracious lady she is! It was the highlight of my trip to the convention.

I don't have any of their new release items yet, but I'm using my new favorite set that I purchased at Stampaway USA last month. This set comes with flowers in three different sizes and each flower has a solid image and an outline image.I used the solid and outline images from just one size. I randomly stamped the solid image in three different colors using light shades and then stamped the outline image in a darker shade. I used the stamp that is intended to fill in the centers in all six shades to fill in the empty spaces. I used Enamel accents on the centers of the flowers, however as it dried it didn't give me the look I wanted. So, I added some coordinating bling to each flower center. Each flower petal was given a coat of Wink of Stella. The stamped panel was layered on Audrey Blue cardstock and then adhered to a black card base.

 One of the sentiments was white heat embossed on a black cardstock strip. I cut a fishtail end to the sentiment strip. and then adhered it to the card front.

I did a little interior decorating on this one and, and decorated the envelope as well. For the flower centers on the envelope, I stamped the centers with charcoal ink and then highlighted them with a white gelly roll pen.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - Stamp It

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge #209 - CAS (for me, this is CAS :) )
Outlawz Sunday CAS Challenge - Use a bird, bee, flower or tree
