STAMPtember® Blog Hop

stamptember15bloghopWelcome to the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop! September has always been my favorite time of the year, but now that there’s STAMPtember®, it’s just over the top the best month ever! Did you know that this is the 7th annual STAMPtember® for Simon Says Stamp? How amazing is that? I think one of my favorite things about STAMPtember® is the excitement in the air and the anticipation of amazing new products. I also really look forward to seeing the collaborations that Simon Says Stamp does with other companies. It bring our paper crafting community together in the most awesome way. You might notice that that card I’m sharing today is also one of the projects in the blog hop banner. There are a few more that I can’t wait to share with you, but today….we shake with the Large Party Circle die!SSS-Large Party CircleThis Large Party Circle die is a shaker party waiting to happen. I layered three of the die cuts for some dimension and then adhered it to a panel of Island Blue cardstock.
SSS-Large Party CircleI also added a little Wink of Stella for some shimmer as well as an embossed sentiment from Birthday Messages.

  53. Laura, your card projects are always so great. This is for sure a wonderful die for a shaker card and it looks fantastic. I’m sure all the rainbow colors are in the sequins. 🙂

  54. Laura,
    Love your fun shaker card!! I have to tell you, i just finished taking your Creative Color Techniques class over at Craftsy, and I just loved it!! i loved the techniques you taught and you are so fun and engaging to watch!! I cannot wait to try out the techniques you shared. I ordered masking paper and post it tape, just so I can try out your techniques!!

  55. I always love your videos, Laura, with the side commentary you do, and this one does not disappoint! 🙂 I really love your shaker card, especially the way you have the greeting on all 3 levels: inside, the die cut party, and the strip on top. Thanks for sharing your artistry, and for bringing a giggle to my heart! ~ Andrea

  56. I love watching your videos. Your ideas are great but you are so lively and entertaining to listen to – I appreciate it!!!

  57. Just Gorgeous, Laura Bassen! Your videos are always so much fun. I need this party die! And I almost got some WoS the other day, but a couple of dies got me instead…story of my life. Anyhoo….Happy Stamptember! Thanks for all that you share.

  58. What a great shaker card! It’s bright, happy, and friendly! I haven’t tried to make one yet but your instructions are so clear and simple…I think I can do it! Thanks so much!

  59. Laura I love your videos, they always make me smile. Ne of the first videos of yours that I ever saw was last year and your were using the SSS ink Hot Lips, and whenever I see or use that cold now I sing…

  60. Love this card. The blue is so clean and crisp.
    The sequins are so pretty. It’s not fussy – just wonderful.
    thanks for sharing.

  61. I absolutely adore this card! So simple yet so colorful, and I love the sentiment! This die is on the top of my shopping list!

  62. My first reaction when I saw this card was “*gasp* That’s SO cute!”. Seriously! And you always crack me up, too. Thanks so much!!

  63. Laura, My daughter is away at her first year of college. So, I am making lots of cards. Love these big scripty circle dies for making shaker cards. AWESOME! Thanks for sharing.

  64. You have the perfect personality for doing these videos. You crack me up. By the way you have great hands too. I love these dies……..

  65. Love your shaker card, wouldn’t it make a fun Christmas card with a holiday word instead of party? Thanks for the inspiration.

  66. I love your cards but I especially love your videos- how do you keep everything from sticking to your fingers when you make shaker cards? I end up with foam tape in one spot and M&M glue on another and sequins stuck just about anywhere static can stick sequins! You make it look so easy! Super excited about the new mini inks too!!!

  67. I absolutely love this card! Shaker cards are my new favorite, and you did this one so well! Found your blog through Jennifer McGuire, looking forward to being inspired and seeing more of your work!

  68. That Party die is terrific–really fun card. Love that blue, paired with the multi-colored sequins. Thanks with the video; you always do a great job of ‘splainin’.

  69. I so look forward to everything that you do as much for the work and creativity as for the joy that you bring through your descriptions of your process.

  70. Could listen to your videos over and over. You teach so well and make me laugh. Love the new dies and this one does make a perfect shaker card.

  71. Laura, Darling and colorful shaker card! Your video is so helpful, now I will be able to try my hand at some.
    So fun and exciting! Thank you!

  72. Who has more fun than stampers!? Can’t believe the enormous release that Simon Says just put out! Wow. I’ve already got half of it on my wish list. Your Party shaker card is great – as always, full of color and lots of action! Looking forward also to finding out about this double stick foam that you mentioned – I’ll be watching & waiting!
    Thanks again for all you do!

  73. Your card is just as happy and sweet as you seem to be! Thank you for both the inspiration and the smiles your videos always bring me! 😀

  74. When i saw this die, i didn’t think i would like it that much but you sure did wonders with it. Great card. Thank you for this card.

  78. What a beautiful card! I wasn’t sold on the whole shaker card thing,, it seems like a lot of work. But this makes it worth it!

  79. Cannot get enough of your videos. Keep them coming, please. I also am crazy about shakers and have been trying to make one where the sequins actually move and the foam is neat. Still practicing, but getting better, with the help of all you wonderful designers. Also love your use of colors. Thank you for the time you put into your videos. We appreciate your work.

  80. Oh wow Laura you did do it again. I just love nearly all the cards you make. The colors, the dimension…. just love it.

  81. What a fun shaker card! I really need to make some more of them – they always get such a great response from the recipient!

  82. OMGoodness I love, LOVE, LOVE your card! so much that I had to pin it so I can try it for myself once I (if I) get the supplies.

  83. What a beautiful and stunning card. I love this shaker card and the white pearl paper you chose to cut out the die. Fantastic. You are a true inspiration I just get always inspired by your cards and videos. Have to check every day on your blog.

    Have a nice evening.
    Hugs, Melanie-Jane
