STAMPtember® Blog Hop

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop! If you’re following the hop, then you’ve arrived here from Jess Larson’s blog.stamptemberrblog-banner

Today we’re celebrating the 4th annual Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® event! We’re ‘hopping’ along sharing some great projects featuring the new STAMPtember® product releases!
It’s one of the biggest releases to date and features new stamp sets, dies and stencils – the newest addition the Simon brand of products.

I thought I’d start with a few of my favorites from this release. I am head over heels in love with this big hello die, not to mention my love affair with these pointed feather dies. They just make a stunning card all by themselves.
STAMPtember® blog hopI embossed this gorgeous sentiment from the So Beautiful set in white. I really love this ultra thin, modern font paired with the handwritten hello.
STAMPtember® blog hopThe double stripes in the Nautical Borders set are perfect for creating your own plaid patterns.
STAMPtember® blog hopThe sentiment is from the Sketchy Banner Greetings as well as the coordinating die. Love, love, love these pink ombre sequins by Kelly Purkey as well.
STAMPtember® blog hopFinally I used the Flag on a Line die on some Amy Tangerine pattern paper to create a fun banner. I splattered some Mr. Huey’s white mist on it and curved the sentiment, which came from the new Thanks set.
