Hi friends!!  I hope everyone is having a stellar week so far.  I know I sure am, being the first week of our summer and all.  It’s hump day and that always gets my blood pumping because…

Yep, It’s time for a brand new challenge on Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  The challenge this week is

Frame It

We’re showcasing Memory Box Products this week and my fellow Design Team members have created some beautiful inspiration pieces for ya.  If you have any Memory Box products, we’d love to see you put them to work this week, and if you don’t that is A-Ok too.  You can still join us for this challenge.

Each week Simon Says Stamp generously gives away a $50 voucher to one lucky (randomly selected) winner to use at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp store.

This was one of those super easy cards that I love to make.  I created the alcohol inked background and then cut it up to match the size of the frame I wanted to use.  I’m using the Stitched Rectangle Trimmings by Memory Box for the frames.

I decided to use 3 different sized frames just because the theme is “Frame It”.  I used the Heart Smile die from Simon Says Stamp and after cutting it out 3 times using some scrap white card stock, I topped it off with the silver wash paper from DCWV.  I cut the frames out 3 times as well to add some dimension.

I left the inner two frames white and added the same silver washi to the largest stitched rectangle.  Then I just added a couple layers of colored paper and I was done!! I decided against adding any embellishments because I just didn’t think it needed any.  I think there’s a lot going on and besides that, there’s really nowhere to add anything.

  1. Such gorgeousness on one card! I love love love the blue and silver alcohol ink background! Totally sold on the color palette. Also, the sentiment is one of my favorites. I love how you framed it with double frames. No embellishments indeed, you are so wise! Have a great day! xx Ankita

  2. Fabulous card, Misty! Your alcohol ink background is perfect ! The two thin frames and other matting papers frame the card beautifully.
    Have a good day♡
