{Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge} Vacation or Travel

This is my second post of the day.

Welcome to the third Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge in May! This week's challenge is Vacation or Travel, which means we want to see a vacation or travel theme on your project. The design team is featuring Studio Calico products. You don't have to use it but we'd love to see some if you have it.


I knew I wanted to use a bunch of Studio Calico's wood veneer shapes on my card and the best way to feature them was to die cut postage stamps from Studio Calico's Wanderlust 6x6 paper pad. I popped up the squares that form an X on the card and everything else is adhered with glue dots for extra texture and visual interest. The sentiment block in the centre is from Mama Elephant's XOXO stamp set.


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. :)

I like it! What a fun way to use the veneer pieces and the postage stamp die. I have the wood pieces now I just need to find the dies. It's great to see an idea using something I've been just keeping in a box. Thanks for posting another great card.

So much fun! I love the Studio Calico wood veneer, too, especially for travel projects! I used them on my challenge project, too!
Great idea to make the tic tac toe design and then put the stamp in the middle! Very clever! TFS!
