♥ Simon Says...Something New ♥

Happy Hump Day! And since it's Wednesday, that means it's time for a brand new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog! This week's challenge...SOMETHING NEW! We want to see a card for a new baby, new home, new year, etc!
This week the Simon Says DT are showcasing products by WPlus9! I am using the Wishing You Sentiments Clear Stamp set for my card this week. Love this set! Love this sentiment since it could be used for many different things. A retirement, a new job, moving to another state/country, etc. This set comes with 6 different sentiments and even can be personalized with the enclosed "mother, father, son, daughter or partner" stamps!

I also used the Sketch Star Die, Cotton Candy Cardstock and Moonshine sequins all by Simon Says Stamp, Deco Sheets and Clear Rock Candy Distress Glitter  by Tim Holtz. I finished it up with some May Arts Natural Twine and Hero Arts Pearls.

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

Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

I hope you all are having a wonderful start to the new year!!

Very stunning card! can someone please tell me if this is a single piece die that is placed inside of a larger die on the card?

Melissa Bove said...

Hi susjc. It is a single die. Just one die. It is the Sketch Star Die by Simon Says Stamp. Hope that helps! :)

Thank you all very much for your sweet comments.

Hi Melissa! Hope you've been well since we chatted last. Your cards always make me smile. Of course, I did play along this week. Although I've never won, I still try my best to play along every week. Also, I am SO SUPER EXCITED to have Simon Says Stamp as our primary sponsor this year at Word Art Wednesday. If you ever want to give us a "shout out", I'd really appreciate it. I can email you all the dates we have SSS as our sponsor this year if that helps. SO exciting! Hope you, hubby, and the boys are all doing great (as well as Mom, sis, etc.) We are all doing great here. In fact, we're heading to CA to visit our daughter and son-in-law next week, and I can hardly wait! Take care, and keep in touch.
