STAMPtember® October Card Kit blog hop

Final Oct 2014 CK Blog HopI’m super excited to be joining Simon Says Stamp for their STAMPtember® October Card Kit blog hop! If you are following the hop, then you should have arrived from the very lovely Nichol Magouirk. This month’s kit is definitely one for the coffee lover with the adorable stamp set and fun pattern papers & embellishments.
SSS~October Card KitI used the larger mug image and paper pieced it, cut the edge off and layered it on a strip of pattern paper. Before I pieced the mugs together, I blended in some ink with my ink blender. The two colors on the top are two of the new colors: Maliblue & Goldenlocks. I stamped one of the mugs with the “hello” sentiment included in the kit.
SSS~October Card KitI couldn’t resist making another card with this hilarious sentiment and cute smiley face on the mug.
SSS~October Card KitI stamped the speech bubble in black and then white embossed my sentiment over top. I blended in my favorite Maliblue ink on this mug as well and paper pieced it onto the card along with the tongue.

SSS~Chalkboard Love

Hello! Today I’m just sharing a card using a couple of new Simon Says Stamp products from their Valentine release.
SSS~Chalkboard LoveI used translucent embossing paste and the Repeated Hearts Stencil on neon paper…totally groovy.
SSS~Chalkboard LoveI wanted to try this Chalkboard Love stamp set on white and on black. Still can’t decide which one I like better. I like the detail you get on the white cardstock, but obviously the chalkboard look is definitely more exciting when white embossed on black.
SSS~Chalkboard Love I definitely love the translucent embossing paste.SSS~Chalkboard LoveI also have three winners to announce for the Stencil card class giveaway…congrats Rachel K., moeboe1 and micheleclay!! I will be contacting you!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
