Yesterday we kicked of STAMPtember® over at Simon Says Stamp and today we’re having a Blog Party to celebrate! It’s the 14th Anniversary of this amazing event – can you believe it??? It only makes sense that we would throw a party!
If you’re wondering what a Blog Party is all about, well, it’s Designers from all over the world that have created inspiring projects using the Simon exclusive STAMPtember® release products and they are sharing them with you on their blogs as a sort of “virtual party”.
Of course, no party is complete without games and prizes! Each designer has been given a random code that YOU can use for all sorts of things—from stamps and dies to ink cubes and blending brushes and all sorts of other goodies in between! That means that each designer may have a code for something different – so be sure to check out EACH of the designers to collect all your codes!
My pcode is shown below:
For my part of the party, I’m sharing these A-DOR-A-BLE kittens and pumpkins that are part of the new “Hokus Pokus” stamp set – along with the new “Wonky Trapazoid” background stamp.
To make this card:
- Heat emboss the Wonky Trapezoid on a piece of white cardstock.
- Ink blend over the embossing using Distress Oxide Inks. The ink colors I used are listed in my supplies below.
- Trim the panel to 3 ¾ x 5 inches and pop it up on a card front using foam adhesive.
- Stamp your kittens and pumpkins using Copic-friendly ink, color them with Copic markers, then die cut them with the coordinating dies for the stamp set.
- Die cut the “thanks” sentiment from glossy black cardstock and several layers of white cardstock – adhering them all together for dimension. I offset my glossy black diecut so that a bit of the white was peeking out behind it.
- Arrange your die cuts on your card front.
- Add a few pearls for some shine and softness.
I hope you liked this card and that you’ll come celebrate with us! All you need to do is head over to Simon Says Stamp for the list of party attendees (aka Designers) and visit their blogs/Instagram sites for your codes!
Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!
