♥ Simon Says...'We're so Trendy'! ♥

Happy Wednesday! Today we have a new challenge for you at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! It's all about some of the new trends out there! Neon...Hexagons...Chevrons. We want to see any of the three on your cards! You can use all three, two of them or just one! As long as there is neon, hexagons or chevrons on your creation, you have a chance at winning a wonderful prize!



For my card, I chose to use, once again, the fabulous Chevron Stripes Die by My Favorite Things and the so very cool Hexagon Border Die exclusively by Simon Says Stamp. The papers are by Prima from the Romance Novel 6x6 Paper Pack.


I didn't do Neon but I tried to use some bright colors. I used some bright blue glittery Prima Crystal Hearts, Prima Rose, Prima Wooden Clock and that amazing Prima Typo Zipper which I distressed a bit with some brown ink.


That cool chevron striped heart is a clear stamp by Paper Smooches from the Geographic Set. I then finished off the card with some glitter, Liquid Pearls and hand dyed seam binding.


And, don't forget, Heidi will generously give the random winner of this challenge a $50 Credit Voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Superstore! Good luck everyone!






♥ I will be posting my Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Blog Hop Winner in just a bit! And my Christmas and Fall Giveaway Winner will be posted sometime tomorrow! :) Good luck to all!

♥♥♥ And check this out!! ♥♥♥



Be back soon!! :)
