Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® Blog Hop!

Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a “STAMPtember®” event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complimenting ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, life documenting, art journaling, scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art. 

To celebrate the 4th annual Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember® event, we're 'hopping' along sharing some great projects featuring the new STAMPtember® product releases!
It's one of the biggest releases to date and features new stamp sets, dies and stencils - the newest addition the Simon brand of products.

We're so excited that you are here to celebrate with us and we hope to inspire you at all stops along one of our biggest blog hops ever!

There are soooo many fun options in this release it's hard to choose just one favorite. But I kinda really like the Whimsical Flowers and Circle on a Line die that I've used in my card below.   


I love this paper by My Mind's Eye Market Street... It's such a pretty soft combination perfect for a Shabby Chic look.


Using a bit of Walnut Stain ink on the edges really gives the flower added dimension.


I added a little flag from the Flag on a Line Die to the lower right side to balance things a bit.

And I've put together a video for your viewing pleasure!


Here's my supplies!




NOW it's time for a GIVEAWAY!!!

Simon Says Stamp is giving away a goody bag at every stop on the hop! That's 16 chances to win!
