STAMPtember® blog hop with Simon Says Stamp & Kelly Purkey

stamptemberrblog-bannerHappy STAMPtember®! Today we are celebrating the new products released by Simon Says Stamp and Kelly Purkey. If you’ve been following the hop, than you should have arrived here from the amazing Debby Hughes, or Miss Debby Doodle, as I like to call her:)
Simon Says StampMy first card uses the new A2 Curved Edge craft die and Sketchy Banner Greetings stamp set. I simply die cut the curved edge onto several pieces of card stock, staggered them and embossed the sentiment on a slight curve. This is another good way to use up those scraps. Who am I kidding…do we ever put even the slightest dent in those scrap piles?
Simon Says StampThis next card uses a fabulous new die by Kelly Purkey called  Don’t You Worry….I adore this sentiment!
Kelly Purkey for Simon Says StampI die cut the sentiment onto vellum and sewed it over another strip of card stock. I couldn’t resist adding some dreamy satin white sequins, which are also by Kelly Purkey.
Kelly Purkey for Simon Says StampAnd for my last card I used the new I Like You stamp set and Feather dies, both designed by Kelly Purkey.
Kelly Purkey for Simon Says StampI adore Kelly’s new designs and products. Everything is so trendy and hip, just like her. At least we can “appear” trendy and hip with our cards. No one needs to see my stretchy pants, right?
Kelly Purkey for Simon Says StampAnd just in case you’re in the mood for a good chuckle, I’ve prepared a video of me making this card…enjoy:)

You’re next stop on the hop is the incredible Amy Kolling. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  6. WOW!! They’re ALL stunning cards but the pink feather one is just so neat and really POPPED off the page for me! Fabulous work, Laura!!

    Simon Says Stamp!

  7. Hi Laura! I swear…you are hilarious, as well as talented! Your video did give me quite a chuckle! Your little girl is adorable! I laughed out loud while watching it late last night and woke my husband up! Love your cards! Can’t wait to get my hands on those yummy goodies! Thanks so much for sharing, and the great laugh!

  8. Your cards are all wonderful! Thanks for the video! Love your little foam dot helper! My son used to help me too! Now he just “advises”! Lol! Your post made my morning! Gorgeous cards! 🙂

  9. So I just found your blog and that video was perfect! I don’t know if that was normal for you, but I certainly hope I find more! That was so cute and very real. Not everyone sits down at a desk and films over their head! LOVE IT! 🙂

  10. 1. Amazing cards. The last one blew my socks off.
    2. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. Your videos always make me smile so big! And that tiny fingers playing around with the foam dots while you were mounting the feather? Priceless!!!

  11. WONDERFUL cards! Love the layers on the first and that last one was so easy, but so gorgeous. Thank heaven that little helpers are cute! 😉

  12. Awwww. Your daughter is too cute! I love how she “helped” you. It’s like my students who try to “help” me in cooking class without permission. Children are the best.

  13. Emma’s such a cutie!!! (You look pretty darn cute too!) Love your cards! Brilliant idea with the feather die! Love the multi-colored curves on your first card and the vellum looks amazing too! Awesome stuff, Laura! ♥

  14. Oh, the first card is so “you”! Love the vellum and the stamping over the feather. And your videos are always a treat–especially on a Friday!

  15. Your cards are absolutely gorgeous, Laura! I love your technique with the feather die so much, and I really enjoyed your video tutorial! It was so fun to watch sweet Emma ‘helping’ you, too!

  16. First of all, that little video was just too cute for words; and informative too! Your cards are great. Love the unique ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  17. Fabulous cards and the video was great. Your helper is just adorable! My helpers have fur and try to eat my foam squares so I can kind of relate.

  18. These are stunning!!!! I absolutely love them all. Thanks for sharing a video. I feel more closer to you. 🙂 Btw, your little girl is so adorable. Made me laugh. May

  19. I can see that if you didn’t have such good help, your beautiful cards would never get made! Emma is a hoot! Your card is amazing. CAS and gorgeous. Really wonderful!!! Love this. TFS your creation and the video.

  20. Gotta good laugh! THANKS!
    You don’t need to get all dressed up to make videos…Your LOVELY assistant is very CHARMING:)

  21. Love all three cards! Your little girl is SO cute, I love how she’s “helping” you!! I banish myself to the basement to avoid my “helpers” while I craft! 🙂

  22. Awesome! This video is exactly what I needed for inspiration. I was working on a project last night for my stamp club next week, but stamping an image over a die cut sentiment, and just could not find the right image and word to inspire me. Tonight, I will scour my stash for the right sentiment stamp, and die cut image instead, and of course, watch your video as well. Many thanks!

  23. I love that first card!!! Absolutely bold and perfect! And I love the feather card! Can’t wait to come back to check out the video!

  24. your little helper is soooo cute! you never cease to amaze me with your creativity, Laura!! totally floored by that first one and then that second one!!!! super love them both and thanks so much for the video!

  25. Love all of the cards…the first one is simple yet stunning. The 2nd one is too cute and I now have that song stuck in my head (thanks!). My favorite is the last card – amazing how simple it was to make! Thanks for the video – you should do more. And love your little foam bandit – too cute!

  26. Laura, I was sitting here just enjoying your first card for ages, then I scrolled down and found more fabulousness, and THEN I found a video! I have the biggest smile on my face right now. I might go and try a card like that right now… (your little helper is the cutest!)

  27. Loved all three cards, especially the implied movement the first and the great layering/stamping/diecutting technique in the third. Crafting is always more fun with friends, huh? Emma is a doll and has a future in cardmaking. I learned to give the kids their own supplies, but they seemed to want what I was using. I kept telling myself it was cheaper than a babysitter.

  28. Laura, I have to tell you that I was totally not digging the curved edge die until your card today! OMG…..that is so creative how you’ve used it here!!! Your ‘dont’ worry’ card is so simply beautiful……I love how you left the tails of your sewing on the vellum. Then you have that BRILLIANT feather card……I am going to try this technique…..It really makes a statement and looks amazing. I love every single thing you made here!!! 🙂

  29. As always you have created such stunning cards!! The use of the curved die is ingenious and love the way you layered the stamping with the feather. How do you come up with these ideas?? Your just amazing!!

  30. Now THAT is some amazing design work! When I first saw the feather card, my eyes couldn’t sort it out! Flat, dimensional, transparency, WHAT? That is amazing. Nice use of that new curve die on the first card too. You really brought some interesting variation to the group today!

  31. Regrettably, I do not get out to comment as often as I should. However I found myself oohing and aahing over your curved edge card…out loud I might add…so I had to come by and say WOW!
    Completely knocked my socks off 🙂

  32. I really like the way you used the curved die – very striking! And your other projects are awesome too. I enjoyed seeing your little “helper” – mine (not so little) just started graduate school and moved into her own apartment. Time goes so fast . . .

  33. AWESOME video…so glad someone else crafts standing up. You look great. So do all your cards. The 1st one knocks me out, so impactful. The second is just amazingly sweet. And the last one…really loving this technique you make look so easy.

  34. Love your cards, and love your daughter! She is so, so cute, and such a big help! Ha! Thanks for doing the video on that card! You always make everything look so easy. Great ideas!

  35. That was coolest thing you did with the feather die, I will have to try it with one of my dies. Great cards and your daughter is a doll. Thanks

  36. WOW!! Amazing, amazing work! I love the feather with the sentiment perfectly aligned. The vellum is beautiful and the curved layers are awesome, I have never seen anyone do that, wow! Thanks for sharing.

    Katie B.

  37. Wow! Three stunners, and again so CAS. The day I’ll make a card under 3 minutes, will be party time for sure :). But, no wonder…, you have Emma helping 🙂

  38. Love all your cards, Laura. I really adore the way the words almost seem to float over the feather when you line them up that way – incredible! Emma is just so super cute – lucky you!

  39. Amazing cards…love the layered feather/sentiment; how pretty is the vellum and adore the curved layers/sentiment! Your daughter is super cute!

  40. I see your perfect cards and think you must be all rulers and protractors and levels and what-nots. And then you go whip out that feather card, standing up, not smudging VersaFine black ink, while your daughter uses all your foam dots?! Even more awesome than with a ruler! 😉 PS…I love the other cards too!!

  41. Love all your cards. Your video was fab and left a big smile on my face with your lovely little helper!! love how you did that feather card as well, so effective and so much easier to do than i was imagining.. thanks for sharing it with us.

  42. Laura, you crack me up! Stretchy pants…teehee. These cards are more than amazing…they are over the top! Wow! Total perfection!

  43. Thanks for the super video. Your daughter is so adorable–I could eat her up. Send her my way someday, and she can help me. Your cards are wonderful, as usual.
