{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Sketch with Authentique/Jane's Doodles



Welcome to the third Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in November! This week's challenge is based on Heather's sketch and the design team is featuring Authentique and/or Jane's Doodles products.


You don't need to use Authentique or Jane's Doodles products but we'd love to see them if you have them! Just make sure your projects are inspired by Heather's sketch. My card features patterned papers from Authentique's Be(you)tiful 6x6 paper pad. All papers, except the card base and vellum are from the same collection.


I used the Falling Snow stencil and embossing paste on the top two-thirds of the card. After that dried, I layered the Hero Arts Fancy Snowflake die behind the stitched Paper Smooches Paper die panel. I stamped the snowman from Hero Arts' Snow Much Joy on its coordinating die and paper pieced it. Then I stamped the sentiment from the new Deer stamp set on patterned paper, also from Be(you)tiful, fussy cut it and adhered it to the card. To finish, I die cut smaller Paper Smooches Snowflakes from vellum and tucked them between the panels.

Since my card features several Hero Arts products, I'm entering it in their Holiday Challenge in the favourite stamping technique category for paper piecing.


One winner will be chosen at random to win a $50 gift voucher to the awesome Simon Says Stamp Store!


It could be you!




I hope you will play along with us this week!



Thanks for stopping by today! Have a wonderful Wednesday. :)
