Well it’s finally time! STAMPtember time that is! It is going to be hard to keep up this month as seriously Simon Says Stamp have sooooo much going on with lots and lots of new product, amazing giveaways and just plain fun all month-long! I’ve linked all supplies at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used.
STAMPtember is the most wonderful time; yes new products are released but it is also a time where companies collaborate and join together in the love of crafting. I want to thank Heidi and all the Simon Says Stamp team for the huge amount of work that goes in to STAMPtember. Seriously, they are going to knock your socks off this month!
I like to lay things out so I can see what is happening, so here’s a little look at the new product that has been released today, but stay tuned for more exclusive releases throughout the month!
Seriously jam-packed! Fabulous new stamps and dies in a range of style to suit all from cute to elegant and everything in between. I love seeing some cute new plush dies in there too to keep my needle busy :D However, not only are there fun new stamps and dies but an array of new staples.
New inks, glimmery card and vellum. Need I say more LOL. Finally lets take a moment for envelopes! I love adding a toning envelope to a card as you can see from this hydrangea card. I think it adds a lovely finishing touch to showcase the card. There’s a huge range to see with both staples in our favorite Simon colors and also metallics!
I started by stamping the flowers with Milled Lavender and the leaves with Bundled Sage on watercolor card. Both of these Distress Inks are light in color and react with water so I could get a no-line watercolor look. I watercolored the flowers with Seedless Preserves and the leaves with a combination of Crushed Olive, Bundled Sage and Forest Moss. For the background I used Pumice Stone which when diluted gives lovely purple hues mixed in among the grey.
I die cut the piece with a Stitched Rectangle and rubbed Antique Linen and Brushed Corduroy around the edges before stamping the sentiment in Smokey Gray. I added a couple of sequins and a twine bow and then mounted the panel on an Ivory card base.
I’ve so much to share over the next few days I hope you will keep calling by!
