A Simon Says Stamp peek and a thank you card 45

Mona Pendleton | Sunday, March 16, 2014 @ 5:00 AM | , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are having an amazing weekend! I'm so excited because today I have a couple of projects to share. First up is a sneak peek of a project that I created special for the Simon Says Stamp blog ~ click HERE. If you are interested in a fun "how to" tutorial, please be to stop by HERE. 
Next up is a card featuring beautiful papers from the gorgeous new Pion design collection ~ Shoreline Treasures. I love the pretty color palette and designs. 
For texture, I embossed a piece of  paper using a Spellbinders embossing folder then added a touch of shimmer using a silk glaze medium:
I joined along with the current Frilly and Funkie challenge which is to create using your "Neglected Dies" and pulled out a few neglected Spellbinders dies. All the flowers and foliage was made using a variety of neglected dies along with pretty Shoreline Treasures patterned papers. 
For sketch inspiration, I joined along with the current Cardabilities Sketch Challenge
Pion design products used:
Shoreline Treasures ~ Sailing  PD4601 ~ back

Shoreline Treasures ~ White Blossom PD4608 ~ back
Shoreline Treasures ~ Borders PD4601 ~ front
Shoreline Treasures ~ Borders PD4610 ~ back

Thanks so much for stopping by! Remember, if you have a few moments and want to learn a fun technique, please be sure to stop by the Simon Says Stamp blog ~ click HERE.
