Challenge: Yellow


This week the Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge is all about a color: YELLOW. Hmmm… not my usual color but I feel like I could have some fun with this! Step #1 I embossed butterfly stamps in yellow and white onto a tag…


After this was done, Iย inked (scattered straw distress) the background then layered dies, color, and had BIG fun!


I used the new Simon Says Stamp butterfly stamps, die, and lemon ink pad on this project. They’re all Simon exclusives and can be found in the shop. The Simon site being new and everything means my usual pretty link-up isn’t working. So I’ll just mention that other supplies you might want are white and yellow embossing powder, rub-ons, and some scattered straw distress ink too.


I hope you enjoy my project – it was loads of fun to make and one of my favorites too.

  1. What a great tag! I love all the yellow and all the layers of stamping/stenciling.

  2. Wow! What a beautiful layering of butterflies. Love how you blended the stamping and die cuts along with the rub-ons seamlessly.

  3. Lovely cheery tag May, I love the butterflies, they add wonderful movement to your design. The touches of black are perfect set against the yellow. Tracy x

  4. May, this is TOTALLY beautiful. I can see turning your idea into a beautiful mother’s day card! I’m off to get some yellow embossing powder— I think I have enough of the other supplies ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This tag is so pretty, May! Love the Yellow/Orange with the black and the white! The butterflies are so beautiful! Hugs, Sandra

  6. This really looks great, there are many layers and it held my interest trying to discover all of them. I would really like to try this technique and thanks for the heads up on coordinating embossing powders as that’s one product I don’t necessarily have in a rainbow of colors โ˜บ.

  7. This is such a pretty tag, May! I love the black and white elements, which stand out so perfectly against the fabulous textured background! It’s just beautiful… ๐Ÿ™‚

  8. Wow, May! This is such an amazing transformation! You truly are skilled at building up all those fabulous background layers and patterns. I love how the butterflies are dimensional and splash across the tag.
