It's a STAMPtember Blog Party!

Hey guys!

I'm back today with a post for Simon Says Stamp's STAMPtember blog party! There are a lot of designers posting today and each one of us has a different coupon code for you to use to get free products - yay! Think of it as a scavenger hunt for some fun, free stuff! It all starts on Simon's blog where you'll find a list of everyone who is participating in the party.

Yesterday, I shared a card with the adorable, Big Picture Book Fox. If you'd like to see that card, you can click here. And if you haven't seen Simon's huge, STAMPtember release, go check it out because it's amazing and filled with so many fantastic products! I've also added them below, in the affiliate links. It won't cost you any extra by using the links, it just helps me continue to create and to share new products with you in the future. I really appreciate your support!

I've got four more cards to share with you today and not one of them involves flowers! I know - shocking - but they're still fun and I loved creating them. I went very simple with each one because I really wanted to showcase the adorable images. I will not be linking every product I used on my cards, just the release products below. So, if you have any questions, just ask in the comments and I'll answer as soon as I can. Okay, let's get started!

On the first two cards, I used the Hip Ginger stamp and die set. Oh, my goodness, this set is the cutest! I created one for fall and one for winter.




Aren't they adorable? I love how you can stamp and color the gingerbread man, along with the clothes and accessories, then add the different outfits depending on the theme of your card. So fun! The sentiment I used is from an older SSS set.

My next card uses the Festive Trees stamp and die set.
 


I colored the embossed trees with Copic Markers but this set, which comes with four different trees, would look awesome with watercolors too!

Last up is cupcakes! I used the Picture Book cupcake die, cutting out three of them so I'd have vanilla, chocolate and strawberry frosting!


I colored them with Copics, added some shimmer to the frosting and topped them with sprinkles, of course! They make me happy! The two sentiments on this card are from older sets.

Here's my coupon code for you to use during checkout over at Simon Says Stamp. This one is a "free with any purchase" code and it's a $5.00 value.

Here's a larger photo of the sticker sheet.


They are puffy, shiny and actually have little stars inside for the shaker element. They're really cute and would be perfect for all your projects with little ones in mind!

I hope you're enjoying the start of STAMPtember! I placed an order from the release, so as soon as those goodies arrive, I'll be back to share more.

Have fun looking for more surprises throughout the blog party and thanks so much for stopping by! ♥

The gingerbread men are beyond adorable--so clever one is for Fall! The trees are my favorite--beautifully colored, Barb! That set is one of my favorites from the release--more so now!

Really like the colors you used on the trees. Nice job!

Teri Smith said...

Oh, you've been busy! That first "hipster" gingerbread man reminds me of a logger. lol I am so very taken with those modern looking trees. I think they'd be versatile in that you can use them any time of the year. Love the colours you used on it.
