Simon Says Stamp cardstock & ink giveaway

This is my second post for today. For my Papertrey Ink project favorites post please scroll down.

Hello again! In a few weeks, Simon Says Stamp will be releasing 5 new colors of ink pads and coordinating cardstock to compliment the 14 colors that they launched in 2013. To say I’m excited is an understatement! The best part of it all is that I get to offer an ink and cardstock giveaway with our current color collection. Here’s a look at it in all it’s beauty:
ink-paperI created this card using several different colors of the current cardstock collection.
Mod Window die~SSSI used the Mod Window craft die as a guide and paper pieced the colors into the negative space. I know, I’m insane for taking the time to glue each little piece in there, but I was goin’ for the “wow” factor. It was very similar to the technique I used for my latest Hero Arts card. The sentiment is from the From Us stamp set and was embossed in white.
Mod Window die~SSSLeave me a comment by February 19th for your chance to win some fabulous Simon Says Stamp ink & cardstock! Thanks so much for stopping by!
