Simon Says..........Use a Stamp and Blog Hop!



It's time for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge blog!This week our challenge is Use a Stamp.  

We're doing things a tiny bit different just this week: you must create a project using a stamp, no digitals, please, add your creation to the linky as usual, AND then hop around to all of the Design Team's blogs and leave a comment.

We are all showcasing the new STAMPtember® products being released - a humongous release full of stamps, stencils, and dies! If you haven't seen them yet, just click HERE.

So since you have lots of hopping to do, let's get started!  You should have arrived here from my lovely teamie Jo's blog.  If not, you can go to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to start at the beginning. Here are 2 cards using the new stamp sets I was sent:


supplies: Simon's Back to School stamp set, markers to color, yellow gelato, My Favorite Things Stitched Traditional Tags die, Lawn Fawn twine

I repeatedly stamped the bus across the card front, then scribbled on a yellow gelato.  I stamped and colored the little student, cut her out on a stitched tag, and added my sentiment stamped and embossed in white on black to make it resemble a chalkboard, in keeping with the school theme.

My next card uses a stamp set that is really meant for using in planners, but I did my best to use a few of the elements on a card that could be given by a proud parent to a son or daughter.  Soccer was the sport both our boys played growing up, so I concentrated on that sport only, but with the many different sports represented in this set, it could easily be changed out for anything else:



supplies: black and white cardstock, Simon's Sports Planner stamp set and Best Circle die, also Big Scripty Greetings stamp set

This Sports Planner set has every sports ball you can think of, plus some sentiments that would really come in handy for listing all the practices and notes a parent would need during any sports season.

Now it's your turn!  We have a $50.00 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp Store for one lucky random winner of our challenge!

AND I have a Simon's goodie bag to give away, too!  All you need to do is leave me a comment here and enter the challenge!

 

Do you use Instagram?  If you do, we'd love you to add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there, too! Follow Simon Says Stamp on Instagram.

The next person on the hop is our fearless leader Lols!  Happy Hopping!
