♥ Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Stamp It Blog Hop ♥

                 

          STAMPtember® Blog Hop

You should have arrived here from the super talented Mandy's Blog! If not, then you will need to go to the Simon Says Stamp Store Blog to start from the beginning. 


So this week's challenge is...USE A STAMP! You must create a project using a rubber or clear stamp, no digi images allowed, add your creation to the linky AND hop around the designers blogs leaving comments along the way.

We are showcasing the new STAMPtember® products that have just been released. CLICK HERE to see them all. It is a HUGE release with loads of fabulous stamps, dies, stencils and much more!

As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store!

                        50dollar_voucher_600px

For my first card,  I am using the beautiful Merry Christmas Ornament Die. Love this die! It is perfect for a card, big enough to make a tag or even make an actual ornament for your tree!


I used papers from the Yuletide Paper Pad by KaiserCraft.


Here is another card made with the Merry Christmas Ornament Die as well.  The ornament was made using some Tim Holtz Deco Sheets,  Authentique Cozy PapersHero Arts Pearls, Doodlebug White Glitter and some May Arts Natural Twine. I also used the large die from the Bundle of Stitched Shapes Die Set.


For this card, I used the new Big Scripty Greetings Holiday Stamp Set. Love this set!! It has some traditional holiday sentiments as well as the ones I used on my card.


The papers I used are from the Bo Bunny Candy Cane Lane 6x6 Paper Pad. There's also some Simon Says Moonshine Sequins on there as well!


The next person on the hop is the super fabulous Teresa Kline!

So now it's YOUR turn to get out your inks, paints and all things arty and start creating! We are looking forward to seeing what you make!

Each DT member also has a Simon's Goody Bag to give away too! All you need to do is leave me a comment on this post and the other DT Members AND enter the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge
