Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is


We are showcasing the fabulous Hero Arts Products this week. If you have any of these products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge.

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $25 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

Oh, what fun I had making this card. I started out with a piece of Burnt Orange Card Stock and I hot foiled the Fall Leaves Hot Foil Plate by Hero Arts and Gold Glimmer Foil. It turned out so beautifully!! I set that aside and started working on my sentiment. I used the Grateful Words Fancy Dies also by Hero Arts and I cut the word Grateful out three times using Ivory Card Stock. For the shadow part of the die I used Dark Chocolate Card Stock.

For my sub sentiment I used an old Simon stamp set that’s unfortunately no longer available but it was called Thankful Heart. I reversed the colors for the sub sentiment. I stamped it in Dark Chocolate Ink on Ivory Card Stock. I popped the sub sentiment up a touch using 3-D Foam Squares.

I used one of the fine frames from the Fine Frames Cover Dies by Altenew to frame in my top panel using Tonic’s Honey Gold Mirror Gold Satin Card Stock. I popped my top panel up using Craft Foam and used more of that Dark Chocolate Card Stock to frame in my top panel. Before I attached my card front to the dark chocolate frame, I used some Burlap Twine and wrapped it around my front panel a few times and attached a few acorns from an old card kit from Simon. Then I tied a bow and attached it using a tiny adhesive dot called Bling Zots.

Then I attached my card front to the dark chocolate and ivory frames. I used a side folding ivory card base to match the rest of the ivory and my card was complete!

So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
