It's a STAMPtember blog party!

 Hi everyone and happy STAMPtember!


It's the best month of the year and I'm excited to share some cards with you, showcasing a few of the products from Simon's big, STAMPtember release!

I LOVE STAMPtember! It's a month long celebration of all things stamping, crafting and card making, hosted by Simon Says Stamp. It's filled with new products and card kits, surprises, videos, YouTube live streams, tons of card making inspiration and exclusive stamp set collaborations with everyone's favorite stamp companies! Be sure to keep an eye on the Simon Says Stamp blog every, single day this month for all kinds of fun!

Here's my code for you. You'll receive a FREE, Party Like a Puffin stamp set, with a $30 purchase, when you use this code at checkout. Yay!


SIMON GALLERIES:

Did you know Simon has card galleries for each of their releases and their card kits, and even a video gallery? It's true, and you can add your very own cards and projects to these galleries! Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the new, STAMPtember gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects!

MY CARDS:

My first card showcases the Pepperberry Bundles Embossing Folder and Cutting Die. I love that this folder comes with matching dies! I used Copic Markers to color the die-cut portions, before adhering them to the embossed panel. And the sentiment is from the Christmas Blessings stamp set. What a beautiful set that is, filled with a ton of gorgeous, holiday sentiments!



My next card features the Acorns and Leaves stencil set. I used a few of Simon's fabulous, Pawsitively Saturated Inks to create this pretty, fall card. And a bit of white splatter is always a good idea! 



Can you say candy?! What a yummy cling stamp this is! It's called, Sugar Rush and I had a blast coloring it with Copics. I chose a funny sentiment from CZ Designs' stamp set called, Sassy Thankful. So fun!


Okay, so this die plate is so gorgeous! It's called, Flourishing Bloom Plate and all I did was cut it out, color the flowers and leaves using Copic Markers again and adhered it to a black cardstock panel. And I used another sentiment from the Christmas Blessings set.


Thank you so much for visiting me! I hope you're as excited as I am for STAMPtember, and I also hope I've given you a few ideas for playing with some of the products from this awesome release!

Enjoy the rest of the blog party!

Here's a link to all the Simon Brand Galleries and here's the link to the new, Dream Big gallery. There is so much inspiration to see! I encourage you to check them out and add your own cards/projects!

 MY CARDS:

First up is the beautiful, Alstroemeria die. I love how this die comes with a few extra petals for layering. I did some simple Copic coloring and used an oval die, an embossing folder and a die cut sentiment, all older products from Simon, to complete my card.

 

Next I have a card I created using the Dimensional Cubes stencil set. This set is fantastic! I mean, the possibilities are endless! Is this cool, or what?!

 

I must have been into blues and greens when I was creating these cards. Lol! Does that ever happen to you? The Talavera Vine cling stamp is another wonderful product from the release. I white embossed it, then used some Distress Inks for the resist technique. And adding sparkle is always a good idea!


 
I love to use Simon's very own Matte Gold Cardstock when there's floral embossing involved! So elegant! This Terrace Floral embossing folder is gorgeous, and it comes with a matching die too!

 

And yes, there's some blue in my next card too. What can I say, it IS my favorite color. This is such a darling stamp set! It's called Born to Sparkle and I know it's gonna sell fast, so go grab it quick if you want it! It's so fun to play with for a slimline scene! And there are so many other images in this set. I only used a few.


Okay, so that's it for me. I hope I've given you a few ideas for using some of the products from this wonderful release! Next up on the hop is the very talented, Jennifer Kotas!

Thank you so much for stopping by!
