Welcome to my stop on the hop everyone! I'm very excited to get you rolling along with my card and a quick walk through video of the Friendship Has its Perks card kit!

My card is pretty simple using all elements found in the kit. Gotta love the die!

The new Maliblue ink from Simon Says Stamp matches great with the BasicGrey papers from the kit!

This is one fun kit… because I just LOVE coffee and the papers are beautiful!

STAMPtember® Blog Hop!!!

Oh be still my heart! STAMPtember® is finally here!!! I am soooo excited to show you some of our new product! 

To start off, I have a card that I made using the Sketched TreesMerry Christmas FramesSnowflake sequins and Zig Zag Dots stencil

I started off by stamping the trees using the new Beanstalk Green and Maliblue inks, then used the coordinating Trees and Trunks dies to cut out. I die cut the frame and assembled everything together on a fog card.

My next card features the Pile of Gifts die, the Thanks Card die and the Many Thanks messages.

I die cut the Thanks card frame first, then was so pleased that the gifts die fit perfectly! I layered up my elements onto a white card and added a bit of Lawn Fawn cording at the base of the gifts. 

This next card features the Sketched Trees in a little different way, I've used the outline image on pattern paper (from my stash) and then added the tree trunks.

I stamped the trunks onto a Khaki card stock panel then layered the tree parts on top with a bit of foam tape for dimension. I lightly stamped the Leaves background onto the white card using Soft Sand ink.

Be sure to check out all the STAMPtember® products HERE!

Simon will be giving away an exclusive STAMPtember® prize pack to one commenter on every blog in the hop! The giveaways for the prize pack will close at 6:00pm EST on Thursday September 11, 2014, so be sure to leave a comment on all the stops on the hop for a better chance to win!
