A Tim Holtz STAMPtember Exclusive!

Hi everyone!

I'm excited to share the fun, new Holiday Stamp and Stencil Set created by Tim Holtz for STAMPtember!

I was lucky enough to receive this set to play with and I had such fun!

We were asked to send our cards to Tim, so he could do a video, sharing some of them. I sent two cards in the mail but for some reason, I only took a photo of one of them - doh! So here it is. 



I used the gorgeous stencil that comes in the set, with lots of yummy Distress Inks. I placed the stencil over my watercolor panel, smooshed some VersaMark ink through the stencil, white heat embossed the images and then the fun started with the Distress Inks. The sentiment is included in the stamp set.

After mailing my cards, I decided I needed to play with the stencil again, but this time with a more girly feel. :)



 Ahh, Spun Sugar and Worn Lipstick always make me happy. And I love pink for Christmas, don't you?

I promise I played with the stamp set too but that's the card I forgot to take a photo of! 

This stamp and stencil set are now available at Simon Says Stamp, but it's a limited edition, so ya might want to act fast before they're gone!

Be sure to also check the Simon Says Stamp blog all weekend long! They've got lots of fun planned, with inspiration, videos and a giveaway from Tim!

Thanks for stopping by today! ♥
