Clearly Besotted STAMPtember® Collaboration

stamptembercbHello there! Today Simon Says Stamp is revealing another exclusive collaboration stamp set designed by Clearly Besotted for STAMPtember® called Holiday Banners.SSS & Clearly Besotted-Holiday BannersI embossed the snowflakes in clear and blended some Maliblue & Scuba ink for the background. After stamping one of the sentiment banners in Hot Lips, I flipped it over and stamped 4 more using the backside of the banner stamp so that I could get a solid banner image using Melon, Twirling Tutu, Jellybean & High Dive. I stitched the banner onto the snowflake background and the rest is history!

  3. Such a darling and beautiful Christmas card!!! I love the colors!! Thank you for giving me a chance to win a spot in the class!!

  4. Such a pretty card, Laura! As for water-colouring: Sighh…I have so many water-colour products – Zigs, distress inks/markers, watercolour pencils – but NO CLUE how to do any of them justice! I know: silly! I’d LOVE to learn HOW to watercolour, because at this point, as much as I’d like to do it, I shy away due to a lack of technique. Do I LOVE what others do with watercolour? A resounding YES! A class like this would be well appreciated and definitely well-attended! Thank you for the giveaway opportunity!

I would love a seat in this class, I just returned from a road trip vacation, and the budget got dinged–dang, when daughter moves 1500 miles away, just gotta buy her some plants to make her place look homey, bring her fav enchilada sauce and meal from fav Mexican restaurant, purchase hardware to “fix” things broken……and so the money goes!

  27. Love this card and all your work, love your videos,too. I did not watch the one with no voice over, but I would have to agree with the others, I would miss hearing your stories while you make the card. Hope you have a terrific day!!
