STAMPtember Blog Hop


You should have arrived here from the wonderfully creative Sandra.  If not then you will need to go to the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog to start from the beginning. 

Use A Stamp And Blog Hop

You must create a project using a rubber or clear stamp, no digi images allowed, add your creation to the linky AND hop around the designers blogs leaving comments along the way.

We are showcasing the new STAMPtember® products that have just been released. CLICK HERE to see them all. It is a HUGE release with loads of fabulous stamps, dies, stencils and much more!

I was happy to receive the Simon Says Stamp Tim Holtz Exclusive stamps.

I created a card inspired by the sentiment with the hand.  I stamped over the background with a map stamp.  Layered in a leftover scrap of a map.  I added in the compass with a touch of watercolor and finished it with the sentiment. 


I also was lucky enough to receive these sweet Simon Says Stamp Stitched Pumpkin Dies and decided to create a Thanksgiving inspired card as well.

I had the Simon Says Stamp Thanksgiving Table set which was a cute backdrop to the pumpkins. I added a bit of stenciling in a strip along the bottom to ground my grouping.  

Products: Simon Says Stamp Exclusive: Tim Holtz Stamps, Stitched Pumpkin Dies, Thanksgiving Table, Ranger Distress Ink - Spiced Marmalade, Vintage Photo, Fossilized Amber, Peeled Paint, Stampers Anonymous - World Map, Classics Watercolor Pencils, Waterbrush, Black Twine, Ranger Archival Ink - Black, Black Cardstock, Tim Holtz Layering Stencil - Lattice, Ranger Distress Stain Spray - Fossilized Amber,  Ranger Archival Ink - Coffee

The first is so elegant in a grungy way and the second is the epitome of simple and classy. I think I must buy some of these products now, so you are the cause of another dent in the old wallet (but I surely am NOT complaining)!
