Simon Says STAMP-tember Blog Hop

Simon Says Stamp Blog has all of the details about their month long event!!...rush over Here and check it out!!

Here is my card for the ANYTHING challenge:

I love how the background turned out!!...On Splitcoaststampers the challenge for Monday was Embossed Kisses...You were to take a solid rubber stamp and ink it up...then ink the "popped" out side on an embossing folder...and "Kiss" the stamp to the embossing folder...

My DD made a 5" x 7" rubber stamp for me when she was in high  school...I used the back of that rubber stamp and inked it up with Antique Linen Distress Ink...I then Inked the popped out side of the Cuttlebug Textile Embossing Folder with Always Artichoke Stampin' Up! Ink...and kissed them together!!..I inked the edges with Always Artichoke...and used a Marta Stewart border punch on the bottom of it...I popped the panel up with pop dots....I think it looks like old wallpaper!!...

I used stamps from Gina K Designs' Elegant Flowers and stamped on GKD ivory cardstock...Always Artichoke and Versa Magic Purely Plumeria inks to stamp the flowers...and Spellbinders Label 1 to cut out the panel...I cut the next larger one from Kraft cardstock to layer it on...the edges were first inked with Antique Linen distress Ink and then Always Artichoke...I popped this layer up also!

I stamped the sentiment using Always Artichoke...and used the smallest Scalloped Rectangle Nestie to cut it out...I inked the edges of this also...the peals and ribbon are from my stash!! 

I am definitely going to do the "Embossed Kissing" again...there are so many different possibilities..with different colors of ink and embossing folders!!   

Have a Great Night!!...and don't forget to check out Simon Says Blog and Store!!

Hello! Your card is beautiful! I love the lacy die cut edging underneath your beautiful background paper. The die cut centers are very effective as well. You did a very nice job coloring your stamped flowers as well. Thanks for joining us at Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. <3 Candy

Love those flowers! The purple color is especially pretty, and I love how all of the layers of your card add so much texture and dimension. Thanks so much for joining us at the Simon Says Stamp Challenge!
