September is a month of many things, and one of the fantastic things is: STAMPtember from Simon Says Stamp!

I have the good pleasure of sharing this new stamp set: Birthday Numbers!! Well, perfect timing as our son has his big #8 coming up in September!! He’ll get a kick out of this one. ๐Ÿ™‚

How awesome are these big bold numbers!?ย  I thought this one would like to smile and float! ๐Ÿ™‚

I masked & stamped these images all out. Then I colored them with Copic Markers and then masked them off again with Post-its to add the background clouds. I covered the balloons in clear Nuvo. I think I prefer Glossy Accents for this type of application, but I was lucky to just find the Nuvo. LOL.

Fabulousness! There are coordinating dies HERE that you can also use to create with. I think they’d make personalized birthday cards a snap.

Next up, I thought it would be fun to paper piece a “7”:

And of course, the seven wanted some big eyes too! ๐Ÿ™‚

For this card, I used a lot of patterned paper, but mostly the stamps make it the party card that it is! So fun!

Be sure to check outย  the SSS Blog HERE to get in on all the prize action, links, and PARTY!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Technique Tuesday Release Day! September!

Today is the day for all the new Technique Tuesday September products to be available HERE!

For this card, I used the new Technique Tuesday dies: Amazing Arrows Stamp Set. The die set has five different arrows in it, so get Cupid ready for Valentine’s Day! ๐Ÿ™‚ The “love you” die cut sentiment is from the Lovely Lavender dies. So sweet!

I thought it would be fun to line up all the arrows on some rainbow paper and then stitch them down. I added the “love you” as the perfect sentiment for the card.

Be sure to head over the Technique Tuesday Blog HERE so you can check out all the DT’s projects. Sure to be fun to see!
