STAMPtember with Paper Smooches!

Oh Happy Day! Paper Smooches has a festively autumn collaboration with Simon Says Stamp for STAMPtember!! You can find this Paper Smooches Deco Fall set HERE.

I love that these are solid images that can be stamped in fall colors …or any colors!!

First up I have this sweet card heavily inspired by my friend Lori last weekend. She made a set of beautiful cards that has clearly stuck with me, because I created this inspired by her cards. ❀

I masked off a center portion of this card and blending on some ink, scoring it to polish if off. I added this sweet acorn after I fussy cut it out.
I just thought it turned out so sweet. πŸ™‚

Next up, is the all about Autumn card! I used all the fall colors on it–my fave!

Welcome Autumn! Love these sweet leaves! They make quick work of festive cards. πŸ™‚

I added some stitching to polish it all off. πŸ™‚ This PSΒ  Deco Fall set is a fabulous set to celebrate Fall!

Thanks for Simon Says Stamp for having me along again to celebrate this STAMPtember collaboration with Paper Smooches! ❀

STAMPtember with Tim Holtz!

Today, I’m sharing a card with Tim Holtz’s Simon Says Stamp  STAMPtember set! You can find this  set by Tim Holtz HERE.

I was with friends this past weekend and a bunch of us created a card with this set to share. A big shout out to my friend Latisha who took this photograph for me. You can tell I didn’t take it because it looks so lovely! πŸ™‚

I added some watercolor craziness and stamped this dude on there. Perfect for Halloween! πŸŽƒ

There is nothing about this photo that looks like it came from me, right?! Ha! The stamp set was my friend Nichol’s, that she shared with us. It’s not my usual style. There is no stitching because I was away from home. AND it’s not my photography. But, as I tell myself all the time, it’s good to fly out of your comfort zone now and again or else you get stuck in it forever.

Hopefully you can find all the images of the cards my crafty friends made with this set too–over at Simon Says Stamp. Because, let me just tell you, they have MAD skills!! ❀

STAMPtember with Honey Bee Stamps!

Fun news! Honey Bee Stamps has a beautiful collaboration with Simon Says Stamp for STAMPtember!! You can find this lovely set called Fall Beauty HERE.

The main feature stamp can hold the card on it’s own, so it doesn’t take much to make it shine. I think there are going to be some awesome examples of this lovely colored!

I kept things simple, because I wanted to make a card set.

I fussy cut out the edge of the stamp after white heat embossing it. I love when detailed stamps are kept simple–the stamp does all the work!

Fall Colors: Perfect!

These sweet sentiments make it easy to complete the simple cards!

Lastly, because I love Fall, I had to make a fall card to use this sentiment. For this I squished a bunch of Distress Inks to create the mish mash of color.

I white heat embossed the one leaf repeatedly and added some splats and stitching to polish it all off.

Autumn changing is beautiful! My FAVORITE! πŸ™‚

Again, here is the full set, Fall Beauty, so you can see all the lovely!

STAMPtember 2019!

September is a month of many things in my world, and one of the fantastically fun things for me is: STAMPtember from Simon Says Stamp! Today is the Blog Party!! πŸ™‚

Today, I’m sharing a card I made using the new Scripty Happy Birthday Die. This Happy Birthday die can pretty much be used for all Birthday cards, don’t you think? πŸ™‚ Check it out HERE.

This Scripty Happy Birthday die has the back plate, which makes it PERFECT for shaker cards!Β  πŸ™‚

I added a bazillion little sequins and bits from my stash. I can’t even tell you where they are from, because I just kept throwing colors in! πŸ™‚

I scored the panel and added some stitching for added texture. I would super love to receive a colorful happy card like this, so I’m hoping someone else will too!

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