STAMPtember® Blog Party!

Simon Says Stamp | Peace of Christmas

Hi there!

Yesterday we kicked of STAMPtember® over at Simon Says Stamp and today we’re having a Blog Party to celebrate! It’s the 13th 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 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! It’s like the worlds BEST scavenger hunt!
For my part of the party, I’m bringing some fresh inspiration from the new “Ornament Options” stamp set! Yesterday I posted this fun card with this set, but today, I went for a more sophisticated look! For this card, I paired the new “Ornament Options” set with the Winter Birds set and did no-line Copic coloring on a berry branch from the set. And my code for the scavenger hunt is:

A free stamp set! And it’s super cute! How awesome is that!?!?

I hope you’ll come celebrate with us!  All you need to do is head over to Simon Says Stamp for the list of party goers (aka Designers) and visit their blogs/Instagram sites for your codes!

Have a wonderfully creative day, everyone!

designer & content creator

I fell in love with card-making many years ago and I’ve been hooked on it ever since. I love trying out new techniques and finding the perfect color combination for whatever I’m creating.

By nature, I am an uber-organizer and a steadfast planner, but as you’ll see, my creations are much more fluid. And while I love color theory, the concept of lights and shadows, and the importance of depth and perspective – these are not things I worry about when it comes to my creations.

I simply find joy in creating and delight in sharing.

I hope that by sharing my cards and other art with you here on my blog I can inspire you to create something you love!
