STAMPtember® (stmp-tmbr) is defined by Simon Says Stamp in this way… an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. However, it didn’t take long until we became a One Stop Shop. Now STAMPtember is so much more than stamps! This year you’ll also see a focus on many other exciting products like dies, inks, notecards and some special surprises. Our intention is to enhance your stamping experience! Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business, and we are celebrating by releasing exclusive products with many of the industry’s finest brands. Be sure to visit our Blog as the home base for the festivities! Trust me when I tell you that the excitement this year is over the TOP, and we are planning fun surprises to keep you on your toes all month long!
I love STAMPtember! A whole month dedicated to all things stampy and paper crafty? Yes, please! I love the fun collaborations and surprises Simon Says Stamp treats us with all month long in addition to the big, awesome release at the first of the month. I can't wait to see what the Simon team has in store for us this month, can you?
For my card share today I combined the new Tattered Poppy Dies with the Best Hugs Stamp Set, Stitched Ovals Dies and the previously released Stitched Rectangles Dies. I colored in the florals and background with Distress Inks and a healthy does of water for a beautiful floral card.
The Tattered Poppy Dies were die cut from watercolor cardstock. The flower petals were colored in with Abandoned Coral Distress Ink and Barn Door Distress Ink. The Pistil of the flower was colored with Fossilized Amber Distress Ink and the Stamen colored with Black Soot Distress Ink. The stem and leaves were inked with Crushed Olive Distress Ink and Forest Moss Distress Ink. After everything was inked, I generously spritzed the pieces with water from a Mini Mister and set the pieces aside to air dry.
Once dry, I traced over the design of the flower petals with the Barn Door Distress Marker and blended out the lines and added glitter to each petal with the Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Marker.
For the watercolored background, I pressed the Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, Salty Ocean Distress Ink and Twisted Citron Distress Ink on the Ranger Craft Sheet and sprized them with water making little puddles or beads of colored ink. I die cut a rectangle from watercolor cardstock using a Stitched Rectangles Die and pressed the paper into the ink, pushing it around to get a nice mix of color. I set the background aside to air dry.
For the frame I combined both a Stitched Ovals Die and a Stitched Rectangles Die and die cut four frames. I adhered them one on top of another for dimension.
On the watercolored background I stamped greetings from the Best Hugs Stamp Set using SSS Black Ink.
I adhered the frames over the background and then glued the floral pieces in place before attaching the entire panel to an A2 Top Fold Scored Card.
