STAMPtember Reveal


Happy STAMPtember....

Woohoo, this is the best month of the year for cardmakers.
Each year in September, Simon Says Stamp practically throws a party each day.
Lots of inspiration, videos, new products for the holidays and more.

LOVE!!!

Heidi and the Simon team were kind enough to send me an advance of some of the new products which I shared in a sneak peek last week.
Today is the full reveal.


A couple of the sentiments from the Best Hugs stamp set were repeated down the side of the card using the new Hybrid ink set Sunny Days.
These inks are a wonderful mix of Fall colors!!!

Best Circle was die cut two times, stacked and adhered together, then inked with Cloudy Sky using an ombre effect.



I just had to make a wedding card with this wonderful stamp set full of sentiments.


Using the Simon Says Stamp stencil Falling Snow, I swished some Zig glue, let it dry a bit, then applied Silver foil on top.
Can I just say, I absolutely love this shiny effect.


Edges of card were inked with Delicata Silvery Shimmer ink.
A little thread behind the small banner sentiment to soften the look.


Thanks so much for stamping by....

Special HUGS




Hello there...

Posting this as a last minute entry into the Winnie & Walter challenge.

Using this card as inspiration:


I loved all the speech bubbles and sequins!!!

Using a speech bubble die from Lil Inkers, I embossed it all over my card instead of stamping as Shay has done on her card above.


I also paired the tiny hearts from the Audrey Cutaways with my sequins to tie into my Ampersand in the greeting.
