Enjoy! (and Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop Winner)

Hi  everyone!

I'm stopping by today to share a card I made using the new Simon Says Stamp Swirls and Dots Stencil (which I absolutely LOVE) along with a sentiment from their new Thanksgiving Table Stamp Set.

Here's my card:



To create the multicolored patterned background I used the Simon Says Stamp Swirls and Dots Stencil along with Distress Inks. I used a sponge dauber to add the Tumbled Glass ink and the small pom poms and applicator from my Pebbles Inc Chalk Set to add the Shabby Shutters and Worn Lipstick inks. I love how it turned out. I finished my card off with the "enjoy!" sentiment from Simon's Thanksgiving Table Stamp Set, some washi tape, and enamel dots.

Supplies:




Also, the winners of the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop are listed on the Simon Says Stamp Blog today. The winner from my blog is Kristie Goulet! Congrats, Kristie! You should have heard from Simon. :)

Thanks so much for stopping by everyone!

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop & GIVEAWAY!

Hi everyone!

I'm excited and honoured to be joining some fabulous women today for this year's Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop. If you've been hopping along you should be arriving from the talented Suzanne Dahlberg's blog. If not you can start from the beginning at the Simon Says Stamp Blog.

 

Today we're all showcasing projects using some of Simon Says Stamp's brand new STAMPtember® release. I'm sharing a couple of cards using Simon's Mosaic Ornaments Stencil & Simon's Mosaic Stars Stencil. Simon has released SIX new stencils in all.

Here are my cards:




For my first card I used the new Mosaic Ornaments Stencil. One ornament at a time, I added embossing paste over the stencil, removed the stencil, and added the glitter while the embossing paste was still wet. Once the first ornament was dry I repeated the same steps with the second one. Once dry I white heat embossed the sentiment from the new Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth Stamp Set. I used a Stardust Gelly Pen with a ruler to create the strings.



For my second card I used the Mosaic Stars Stencil with Distress Inks and Mini Ink Blending Tools. I cut each star out and layered them with foam adhesive. I used a Stardust Gelly Pen to add a bit of glitter to the top star. Once again, I white heat embossing a sentiment from the fabulous new Simon Says Stamp Peace on Earth Stamp Set.


***GIVEAWAY***


Simon Says Stamp will be giving away an exclusive STAMPtember® prize pack to one commenter on every blog in the hop!
