Simon Says..........STAMPtember® 'Stamp-It' Challenge and Blog Hop

wed-newchallenge-header

Here we are at the first Wednesday of the month and we have a very special challenge for you at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday challenge blog!

Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

TODAY is Heidi's birthday!!  Heidi is the owner of Simon Says Stamp.  We'd love you to join us and wish Heidi a very Happy Birthday!

Stamptember-Blog-Hop-600x150

Our theme this week is

STAMPtember® 'Stamp-It' and Blog Hop

 and we are showcasing the new  STAMPtember® products  that have just been released!  CLICK HERE to see them all - it's a HUGE release with loads of fabulous stamps, dies, stencils, and much more!!  You just need to use a good old fashioned stamp, no digitals this time, please, AND hop around to all the designer's blogs, leaving comments along the way.

You should have arrived here from JO's blog; if not, then click HERE to go to the start of the hop at the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog.

Here's my first card:

This uses just a few stamps from the new Trick or Treat set.  I used markers to color the cat, then fussy-cut it out and added it to my scalloped panel, on which I had already stamped the cute stitched sentiment cloud.  I paired this up with a panel of Doodlebug patterned paper.

My next card uses some small elements from the new Presents and Ornaments set, and so I made my card a bit smaller, 4 1/4" square.


other supplies: gold glitter paper as frame, Ranger super fine gold embossing powder, gold sequins, Simon's Schoolhouse Red cardstock

And one more, showing you a new Inside Holiday Greetings sentiment and the new Dots and Lines stencil.


I stamped the sentiment on a Spellbinder's Floral Oval diecut in Simon's Lipstick Red ink, and popped it over the stencilled panel, along with a lovely hand-made poinsettia that was a gift to me years ago.  

Okay, let's see your stamped creations!  We have another $50.00 gift voucher for a random winner

Now, hop on over to Lorraine's blog for your next stop!

ETA: I'm adding the 2 Christmas cards to the link party at Paper Crafts & Scrapbooking, in celebration of their newest Holiday Cards & More publication.

Wow Lin, you never cease to amaze me. Great to see that you are still creating some lovely beauties here on your blog. It has been a while since I have visited her our HA Flicker group but your ability to create masterpiece after masterpiece always blew me away. You have been blessed with some amazing talent and you have inspired me many times in the past. Your ability to provide various styles and designs still seem to ring true even today. Love the variety shared today and so great to see you going outside of your regular style like I think is the third card, which I remember from our group. No matter what style you always make it shine. May you be blessed with everything your hand finds to do. Big Hugs.
