Tim Holtz Exclusive & Virginia’s View challenge

timholtzstamptember2015-600x279Hello there! Today I have a couple of things to share. First up is the brand new STAMPtember® collaboration stamp set by Tim Holtz. I love Tim’s blueprint designs, sized perfectly with card makers in mind.SSS-Tim Holtz STAMPTEMBER 2015 ExclusiveThis exclusive Tim Holtz stamp set is a STAMPtember 2015 Limited Edition that will only be available for sale at Simon Says Stamp until midnight EST September 30, 2015 (while supplies last). Since I am not really a coffee lover, I turned the iced coffee image into a Cotton Candy Crème Frappuccino. Pink is always more fun anyways, right? I also stamped the striped pattern on the side using the new Basic Stripes stamp set.
SSS-Tim Holtz STAMPTEMBER 2015 ExclusiveAlso wanted to share that I have a project up on my dear friend Virginia Lu’s challenge blog for her latest Geometric Patterns challenge.
Geometric patternI created the dimensional pattern by using the Chevron Pattern Full Card die.SSS-Chevron Pattern ful card dieI took a positive cut from the die and used it as a guide to pop up each little piece, keeping them all perfectly aligned. It took some time, not gonna lie. Not sure why I’m always so drawn to such time consuming designs. I blame it on the rainbow cardstock.

  14. The geometric card is George’s! And so are the colored stripes on the frappachio card! It is definately the multitude of colors!

  15. These are fabulous. I love the new TH set and the idea of a Cotton Candy Creme Frappucino is delightful. The second card is amazing, lots of work but well worth the effort!

  16. Your work is so inspiring Laura – I had just 5 minutes ago decided not to put the full chevron in my cart at SSS (as it’s rather full already!) but I saw your card and decided I must now have it!!! I love your cheery designs and the way you take things to the next level – the time you put in is well worth it as your cards are fantastic. Thanks for inspiring us 🙂
