It's a STAMPtember Blog Party!

Happy STAMPtember everyone!


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, surprises, exclusive collaborations with your favorite stamp companies, special promotions, announcements and so much inspiration!

STAMPtember always starts with a bang, with Simon Says Stamp releasing a HUGE number of amazing products on the first day. I had lots of fun playing with some of them and I have lots of card inspiration to share with you today but first, here's a code for a . . . . .

FREE GIFT!

How fun is that?! With a $30 purchase or more, you'll receive Simon's exclusive Dot Runner plus two refills, FOR FREE! Just use the code: F7L2S29 at checkout. This code is valid through tonight, 9/2 at 11:59 pm EDT so don't miss it!

There are different 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:

I think the most exciting product from this release is Simon's new ink pads! The colors are bright and gorgeous, the pad is juicy and they stamp beautifully! They are also water reactive, so that's a big bonus! And another bonus? They come pre-labeled! Aren't they yummy?!

So far, there are 15 colors, with more coming soon! I used the inks on a few of my cards today, so I'll share those first.

 



This card uses the adorable, Too Cute To Spook stamp set. Love those sweet, little ghosts! I just did some ink blending for the background and Copic coloring on the images.


I used the same set for this card and added a die cut sentiment using the, Here For The Boos die set. I used the new inks again but this time just to shade the sentiment die.

 

A very simple card, showcasing the trio of aqua inks and the beautiful, Big Happy Birthday die set. There's a shadow stamp behind the sentiment that's included in the set. I cut it from vellum so it's a bit difficult to see.

Up next is this pretty, Leaves Wreath stencil set. So easy to use for a quick card! Just add a sentiment and you're all set!

 

How about some, Halloween Gnomies! This is the cutest set and so fun to play with!

 

Okay, this next one is cool! This cling stamp is called, Concentric Doodle. I inked up the stamp with some fall color Distress Inks, spritzed it with water and stamped it down onto some watercolor paper. And that sentiment? It's called, Chunky Thankful.


Are you loving embossing folders as much as I am lately? Look at this one! It's called, Triangle Burst and man, oh, man does it look gorgeous! I left it simple again and just did a black and white design because I couldn't believe how amazing it looked! The depth, shadows and dimension that you get are awesome!

 

Last but not least is the, Lined Leaves set. I did a little water coloring on the leaves and fussy cut them out before adhering them to an ink blended panel.

I hope I've given you a few ideas on how you can use some of the products from this amazing, STAMPtember release! Keep partying, enjoy all the inspiration and don't forget to look for the special codes on each blog!

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you love STAMPtember as much s I do! There are so many more fun things to come, all month long!

Happy STAMPtember!
