more STAMPtember® stuff

Hi there! Today I’m sharing a couple more cards using some of the new STAMPtember® products by Simon Says Stamp. This first card uses the new pointed feathers die and sketchy banner greetings stamp set.SSS~pointed feathers dieI used various scraps of pattern papers for the feathers. This smaller feather die is even small enough to cut the cute margins at the top of those pattern papers. I always hated wasting those pretty margins, didn’t you? I’m glad we solved that problem, aren’t you? I feel better already:)

I adhered them with glue, only in the center so that I could fold up the sides for dimension.

SSS~big hello dieI used a piece of pattern paper from my SSS August Card kit, and popped the whole thing up with foam tape. I channeled my inner “Maile” and trimmed a funky angle. Am I the only one who thinks of her whenever I see a funky angle like this. I think she invented it, didn’t she? She’s a genious!

    I don’t own a feather die. I’ve always convinced myself that I don’t need it due to budget 😀 But Stamptember is making me question my decision.
