It's a STAMPtember Blog Party!

Happy STAMPtember, you guys!!!

It's the best month of the year! Let's party! Let's celebrate our collective love of stamping! Let's have fun, be inspired and enjoy this wonderful hobby of ours! I'm ready and I hope you are too!

 


WHAT IS STAMPTEMBER?

If this is your first STAMPtember, I am so excited for you! STAMPtember is a month long celebration of our love of stamping. There will be a blog post every single day of the month over on Simon's blog with contests, prizes, exclusive collaborations with your favorite stamp companies, special promotions, announcements, and more!

STAMPtember always starts with a bang, with Simon Says Stamp releasing a HUGE number of amazing products on the first day! I had so much fun playing with some of them! I'm excited to share my cards with you but first here's a code for a free stamp set! 

 

 

FREE GIFT:  

There are codes for lots of different free products at every stop of the STAMPtember blog party! It's like a scavenger hunt, so be sure to keep your eye out for all the codes! Head over to Simon's blog if you want to start at the beginning of the party, and for a full list of participating blogs.

 

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: All products are listed below in the affiliate links, at no cost to you.

Okay, let's get to the inspiration! First up is a pretty set of three cards I created using the Floating Leaves stencil. This stencil is a big one, so it can be used on a slimline cardbase, as well as an A2 size card. Love that! I used some yummy Distress Oxide Inks for an easy blend of colors!


 

 


 


 

My next two cards showcase the beautiful, Etched Laurel Leaves die set. For a bit of added texture in the background, I used an older stencil and some clear embossing paste to create the circles.

 

And I paired the same die with the gorgeous, Detail Ringlet Plate for this card. Love the elegance!

 

Okay, this next one is just plain fun! I love the Mix and Match Circles stamp set! The possibilities are endless with the many images in this set. I only used four of them for my card and stamped them with some of my favorite Simon ink colors!


 

And last up is this cutie. The Halloween People stamp set is adorable! And I created the background with the Circle Pattern Cling stamp. I white embossing it and added some Halloween colors with more Distress Oxide Inks. So fun!

Enjoy the rest of the blog party! I hope I've given you some inspiration using some of the new STAMPtember products! 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I like how you made the slimline cards work for a quick card. Almost all the slimline I've seen are very complicated and sometimes I just don't have the time to make art but want to get a card out. I like that this new trend can have that possibility - I just have to think outside the box. Love that you also showcased two other cards. Thank you.

Wow Barb. What a fabulous array of cards. Love the simple ink blended ones over the leaf stencil - and the colour combinations are beautiful, and also love the more elegant monochromatic cards as well. So elegant. Cute Halloween cards and very vibrant colours. All of them are just great! Thanks so much for sharing.
