Stamp It, Stamptember

Hello crafty friends!! Please join me for a new challenge at the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  This week the challenge is

Stamp It

We are showcasing Stamptember Products this week.  If you have any Simon Says Stamp products, we’d love to see them used, but it’s certainly not a requirement to join the challenge. 

As always, the generous folks at Simon Says Stamp will be giving away a $50 voucher to one randomly selected winner to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.  You can enter 5 times which means you can make 5 different projects following this week’s prompt and have 5 chances to win a shopping spree!! Sounds like a win/win to me!! I’ve linked all of the supplies that I used at the end of this post. Compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.

I’m back with a couple more cards featuring this gorgeous Poinsettia Background stamp. If you haven’t seen what I created for the Stamptember Blog Party a few days ago, click here.

No flower says Christmas like the lovely poinsettia plant but I wanted to share that this beautiful background stamp can be used for more than just the holidays.

For my first card, I started out with a piece of Stathmore ready cut watercolor paper and I stamped the poinsettia image with SSS clear ink and heat embossed it with white embossing powder. Then I colored it with watercolor and set it aside to dry.

While my background was drying, I worked on my sentiment. I cut out the word, “hugs” using the Altenew bold alphabet die. First I cut it out using SSS white glitter card stock and then I cut it out using white craft foam.

For the second part of the sentiment I used Tiny Words by SSS on black card stock and white embossing powder. I trimmed it down with the sentiment labels, also by SSS. It took me FOREVER to line up the “hugs” letters, but once I got them glued in place, all I had left to do was glue the secondary sentiment and add a few onyx jewels by Studio Katia.

I created another background using the poinsettia background stamp only this time I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder and watercolored it in purples. I used that background image to cut out the “friend” sentiment once again with Altenew’s bold alphabet die.

I went around the edges of each letter with a Memento tuxedo black marker. For the background, I used Spun Sugar, Seedless Preserves and Wilted Violet distress oxide inks. I sprinkled that with a few water droplets then used a rounded rectangle infinity die by Hero Arts to cut out my card front. I used a top folding black card base and glued everything in place. The letters were a little easier to line up on this one because they were all the same level at the bottom so I just used a T-square ruler and lined the bottom of them up.

For the second part of the sentiment, I used the Tiny Words Encouragement stamp set by SSS. Once again I used the sentiment labels by SSS to cut out the secondary sentiment and to finish off my card I used a few metallic silver jewels by Pretty Pink Posh.

  So now it’s YOUR turn. Happy Crafting!!
