Paper and Paste

Sunday, February 23, 2014

This week we are challenging everyone to use Paste for the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. For my project, I created a Thank You card loaded with textural elements. I used gold embossing paste from Wendy Vecchi to create a stenciled background. Before the paste dried, I sprinkled on Antique Linen Distress Glitter to add even more texture and shine to the paste.  I love how well the two products coordinate. It's as if they were meant for each other.

Speaking of products that work well together...check out the way those Paper Artsy stamps fit in the Avery Elle pinked die shapes.  Perfect! What a wonderful discovery. I love that! 
I am so thankful that Simon Says Stamp carries a wide variety of products from different manufacturers. Remember Hannibal Smith from the "A Team"? He would say, "I love it when a plan comes together."


How do you paste? Link your project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog for the opportunity to win a $50 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp.  These vouchers are given out each week to a random participant. It could be you! Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our designer spotlight.



Happy Stamping!
