Today Simon Says Stamp are continuing their STAMPtember release of exclusive sets with a Winnie and Walter collaboration.
The set they have designed together, called 'Big Bloom', contains a lovely huge flower and various bits and pieces to go with it. However, for my card, I decided to focus on the little bits and pieces rather than the main image. :) Using one of the stamps designed to create a flower centre, I created my own patterned paper. I used Simon Says Stamp's Duckling, Melon and Rosie Cheeks inks and some rustic style cardstock. Next, I stamped the Merci circle on more rustic card, then die cut with a small Nested Circle die. I cut a larger circle from my stamped panel, added some stitching, then used some foam adhesive to adhere the panel to a rustic notecard that I had inked with more Rosie Cheeks ink. Finally, I adhered some embroidery floss behind my Merci circle, and added it to the card.

Such a simple card… 
Don't you just love the quality of those Simon inks.

Check out the set HERE - it's another great collaboration!
I'll be back again soon.
Bye for now.
