Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Blog Party


Hi friends!  I'm participating in a blog party celebrating Simon Says Stamp's Stamptember event/kickoff today.

What's a blog party?  Well unlike a blog hop where you go all the way through and comment to win prizes, there are no prizes, but there are party favors.  In this case some fun codes that you might want to take advantage of in the Simon store.  I've got a code to share that you'll see at the end of my post.  There are a ton of people participating in today's blog party, so I'm going to keep my remarks to a minimum.  ;)

My card today features the new Healing Hugs set.

I started by stamping the floral frame image on some Neenah White cardstock with Gina K Whisper Amalgam Ink.

The image was then no-line colored using Copics.

Once that was done, the sentiment (from the same set) was stamped with Versafine.

There is a coordinating die set for this stamp set, but I don't have it, and it was pretty easy to fussy cut around the image.


Originally I was going to make this a square card, but in playing around with the mats, I decided that I liked it in an A2 size better.  I went with an 'uneven' matted look in the background, and popped the stamped piece up with foam tape.

Now how about that special code I promised you?  Here it is:


Thanks so much for stopping by, be sure to stop by the Simon blog to see who else is participating in the party and to get some more inspiration!
