Stamptember Blog Party


Hey everyone!  In case you didn't know (which would be pretty tough) Simon Says Stamp is celebrating STAMPtember/September all month long.  Have you seen all the new goodies in the STAMPtember release?

Today they are throwing a big old blog party.  It's not a hop per se, but just a whole bunch of crafty folks who are playing with new release products and who happen to have party favors.  That's right - everyone participating in the fun has a special surprise/gift at their blog.  Mine is below:


Now for my cards!  I got to play with the adorable Right Meow stamp set. It is really cute and I actually don't even like cats!  As soon as I saw this sleeping cat image, I knew I wanted to stamp him in a circle.  


I traced a circle on my panel and just eyeballed the stamping.  I kept the coloring really simple and added a sentiment from the set as well.  You could totally make this one a Christmas card too don't you think?


This next card features this sweet cat couple.  They are very chic don't you think?

For this card I stamped the cats on a subtle patterned paper and then lightly colored them using my Prismacolor pencils.


I love the look of stamping/coloring (in any medium) on patterned paper and am trying to do it more.


OK, be sure to head over to the Simon blog to see a list of all the other participating designers and check out what specials they are offering on their blogs.

  15. I don't have a cat, but I sure like the ones my friends own. I've been wanting a cat stamp set for a long time & have finally hit on the one I like the best. Yes, I agree with you that you could totally use the first card as a Christmas card. The second one is adorable. Love the glasses. :)
