Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge

For the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge the theme is O. The letter O. I came up with this card using all the colors of October like orange, brown, green and  I made a leaf card. Fist I stenciled distress inks in ripe permission, tattered rose, barn door, and gathered twigs. Then I spritzed a little water  and voila I had the background. For the Main part of the card, i decided to glitter paper and cut leaves out of my Simon Says Stamp new leaf stamp and die set. I just got the hugest most amazing order of stamps and dies and embossing powders oh my. I have never in my life bought so much in one order but to be honest I was in awe of all the pretty new stamp sets from Simon which to be honest are my fav stamps and dies. I love all the other companies but when they come out with new stamp sets I get giddy. 
I used the word OCTOBER as my theme and stamped "Happy October" with my lawn fawn alphabet stamps and gold princess heat embossed it after I versamarked it. Do you like how I make verbs out of all my products?

I love doing these challenges and I Luv Stamps!

Enjoy and if you are in the mood to try one of these fun challenged they happen Mondays and Wednesdays with different themes. 

Enjoy the Holiday Monday!!!!!!

  1. I had to tell you how much I've enjoyed looking through your blog. This card is wonderful and made me feel all giddy for Fall. Great use of metallic touches and those colors are fabulous. I also thought it was so clever of you to layer the leaves the way that you did-- it reminded me of a beautiful leaf pile that I wanted to jump into! And that background! Wow! It is stunning. You've used so many creative techniques and I adore the way you mixed rustic elements with bling. You have a great eye for art and I'm so glad you shared this with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
