Hi there! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! Do you have stamps that are versatile? That can be used many ways? This week we challenge you to use a stamp multiple ways on the same project or use the same stamp in different colors or ways on multiple projects!
I was inspired to create a layout using 1 stamp, 3 ways:
The woodgrain stamp from Trust The Magic cling stamp set was the perfect versatile stamp for my outdoor themed layout featuring a photo of Connor that was taken more than 15 years ago:
I inked up the stamp with Vintage Photo Distress Ink then stamped my heart out on a piece of paper from the French Industrial Paper Stash collection. Once I was finished stamping, I put my newly stamped patterned paper to use in the following three ways: I pieced a patchwork background border:

die cut Mini Heart embellishments:
and a frame to highlight a stamped butterfly image:

Thanks so much for visiting! I hope you enjoyed my project and I hope you join along with the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Stamp Challenge blog to see all the DT's fabulous inspiration!
Be Sweet ;)

Mona,
What a beautiful layout using your stamp 3 different ways - wonderful! The stitching is awesome - as is the picture of Connor - he is adorable! Thanks for sharing.

Wonderfully done pg. Like the picture of Connor. When I saw the clock face, I glanced back to his watch. All of the wood grain and doodled stitching is wonderful, as well as the die cuts and tattered floral flowers. Another FAB page, Mona! :)

That looks so cool. Love the way you created a patchwork background. I have sooooo many stamps and I need to use my stash instead of always buying more :/ Love the rustic colours and that is a cool pic.... Love this....that stitch stamp is one of my faves.
