{Simon Says Stamp} Pin It Challenge


I'm back with another post as Guest Designer for the Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog! This week's challenge is to create a card using pins, paper clips, clothes pins, etc. I had very little in my stash for this challenge and that is definitely going to be rectified soon! ;)


I started this card by colouring the Tall Flowers with Ranger Distress Markers and stamping it on kraft cardstock. Then I trimmed a piece of vellum cardstock on an angle and stamped the sentiment from Thanks a Bunch in two parts. To finish, I tied Pink Lemonade Lawn Trimmings along the angled cut, tucked the arrow clip on the edge, wrapped the twine around the arrow and finished it with a bow. All my supplies are listed below.


I hope you will play along with us this July!
