STAMPtember Blog Party!

 

I'm excited today to be participating in a STAMPtember Blog Party!  This is NOT a hop, just a blog celebration of friends who are excited to show off the new STAMPtember goodies that were released yesterday HERE.  Each of us will have a promotional banner to share with our followers - we want you to have fun and see all the different promotions available throughout the party!  Mine is at the top of this post - a mini Speckled Egg Distress inkpad, free with any purchase now through Sept. 2 at midnight!  Just use the code GWSE45.    

Everything starts at the Simon Says Stamp Blog. Visit there every day, as throughout all of September we will be celebrating with exclusive collaborations, contests, prizes, promotions and lots of surprises!!

I was sent this new cover plate die called Detail Ringlet Plate and a clear stamp set called Circle Sentiments Christmas.

supplies: white and Lipstick Red cardstock, new Detail Ringlet Plate, markers to color, stamped dotted circle from new Circle Sentiments Christmas, Joy die, Stitched Rectangle die

I took one look at this new cover plate die and thought "quilt"!  So I made an impression, trimmed it just a tad so that I could frame it in red, and took my time and colored it with red, a blue-green, and a minty green.  One of the circles in the new sentiment set is a dotted one, which I thought was a perfect match to the pierced design, and since I wanted to keep the rest of the card pretty simple to balance out the busy design, I just chose a sentiment die to finish my card.  

Then I decided to go autumnal - it is September, which is all the reason I need!  


supplies: white,  kraft, and Dark Chocolate cardstock, new Detail Ringlet Plate, markers to color, Four Seasons die, Stitched Rectangle die

This time I only colored in the center part of the design and then added my die-cut and stamped sentiment. 

Here's one more, left alone and paired with a sentiment from the new Sympathy Greetings Mix and a flower.


supplies: white and orchid pink cardstock, new Detail Ringlet Plate die, new Sympathy Greetings Mix clear set, Love Always rose, MFT Mini Stitched Scallop rectangle die, Zig markers

HERE's a card from yesterday using the Sympathy Greetings Mix set, and I'll have another card for you using my new goodies on my regular Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge post HERE.

Thanks for coming by today.  If you haven't already, head over to the Simon Says Stamp Blog to see a complete list of others participating in today's party.  And don't forget to take note of all the promotions you'll find as you visit each one.  Enjoy!

Being a quilter, the Detailed Ringlet plate is my favorite. I would like to know if it is easy on the hands to run through a Cuttlebug. I would so like to have this die. Thank you. [Bunny]
