Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #601 Midsummer Blues, Memory box

Hi Everyone!

I am here to introduce a new challenge at the fantastic Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.

This week's challenge is called: Midsummer Blues
The team is showcasing products from: Memory box

And this is my take:

I started by making a cardbase from blue cardstock and then inked a panel the same size as the base. I inked it from dark to light before cutting my floral frame from it. I then cut my butterflies from white cardstock which I then adhered to vellum and trimmed. Last I decorated with some copiccolored mini flowers and some applegreen nuvo drops.

My box with my latest order made it just in time so I could make a card using the beautiful new Cottage Meadow Paper Pad.


SSS Black ink for use with markers
Copic Markers
Ranger's Distress ink
Neenah Solar White cardstock (for the stamped and colored images)
Simon Says Stamp Ultra Thick Cardstock
 (120 lb) (cardbase and die cuts)
Jet Black Archival ink (for watercoloring)
Scotch foam adhesive

Xyron tape dispenser 
Xyron mega runner
