♥ Simon Says...Joy's {beautiful} Photo Inspiration ♥

I'm back with my 2nd post of the day! This time it's for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is a gorgeous inspiration board that my super sweet and lovely teammate Joy made for you all to be inspired by! (See pic below!) So many sweet, different photos to go by! I can't wait to see all of the fabulous white on white cards you all make!!


This week, the Simon Says DT is featuring products by Cuttlebug! You don't have to use them on your creation, but if you have them, we would love to see them! I chose 2 different embossing folders for my card. For the background, I am using the Textile Embossing Folder. Love that pretty pattern!


And on the center panel of the card, I am using the Birds and Swirls Embossing Folder. I love that sweet Owl on the Inspiration Board photo and I wanted to use one on my card and I know I have tons of different owls. Stamps, die cuts, chipboard, etc. Could I find one?? Nope! So, I decided with Valentine's Day right around the corner, why not make one out of hearts! So I did! hehe I used the Simon Says Stamp Large Heart Dies Set. I used some vintage button and Liquid Pearls for the eyes, a Simon Says Stamp Wooden Heart for his nose and I gave him a Prima Crystal Heart as well!


The cute sentiment is from the Avery Elle Lots of Love Clear Stamp Set. The cute little die cut Ornate Lock is by Cottage Cutz. (sorry for the bad pics! So hard to photograph!!)


Here is Joy's White on White Inspiration Board!


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!





Have a great day!

hugs...
