Welcome to the STAMPtember Blog Hop Party!
"STAMPtember® (stmp-tmbr) is defined by Simon Says Stamp… an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate our community of stampers.
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an obsession for rubber stamps. However, it didn’t take long until we became a One Stop Shop. Now Simon Says Stamp and STAMPtember® is so much more than stamps! This year you’ll also see a focus on many other exciting products like dies, notecards, and some very special surprises. Our intention is to be your one stop shop in this awesome community!"
Throughout STAMPtember we will be celebrating every day posting exclusive collaborations, contests, prizes, special promotions, announcements, and more surprises! Simon’s blog will announce what we have planned every day.

Watch the creation of these two beautiful flowers 2 cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
Today I'm sharing a couple of new cards featuring the Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamp Set, coordinating dies, Tiny Words Stamp Set, Mod Stripes Stencil, and Sentiment Labels Dies. Flowers are always a good option for so many occasions. Using the same general design, I created both a thank you card and a sympathy card.
The flowers from the Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamp Set were stamped on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder before being watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen. Once dry, the flowers were die cut with the coordinating dies.
Background were created by inking Bristol Smooth Cardstock with Tattered Rose Distress Ink and then stenciling over the lightly inked background with Tattered Rose and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks with the Mod Stripes Stencil. Gold paint flecks were splattered over the background using a Kuretake Gansai Tambi gold color and a small paint brush.
When the paint was dry the flowers for both cards were adhered to over the stenciled backgrounds as shown.
Sentiments from the Beautiful Flowers 2 Stamp Set and Tiny Words Stamp Set were stamped on smooth white cardstock with clear embossing ink and heat set with Antique Gold Embossing Powder. The sentiments were die cut into strips using the awesome new Sentiment Labels Dies. On one of the cards, I used the die to make the sentiment into more of a banner and on the other one I trimmed it straight. Either way you use them, they are a fantastic staple that make creating the perfect sentiment strips so easy! Both strips were adhered with foam adhesive.
Nuvo Crystal Drops in Pale Gold were scattered throughout each design to finish the cards.
