Happy Wednesday, crafty friends! So, yesterday the 2020 STAMPtember® release went live, and today we are having a HUGE party!Since this is a HUGE party, to best place to get all the links that you need is the Simon Says Stamp blog. Everyone partying with shopping codes & tons of inspiration will be linked there!
I've created a few cards with the STAMPtember® 2020 release, and up first are some beautiful fall themed cards.
I chose some really pretty jewel tones for this card set that just screamed FALL to me! Fall is my VERY favorite season, and I'm already celebrating it. We've started having fall like temps this week, and I am here for it. No more hot, sweaty weather for this girl - lol! Here is a list of the main products that I've used on this card, plus you can find my list of tools, etc., at the end of this post. Thank you so much for clicking on my links and shopping from them, as they provide me with a small amount of compensation at no cost to you. I genuinely appreciate your support!
For this first card, I started by diecutting the Laurel Etched leaves from 6 shades of cardstock, then arranged them to a white cardstock panel in a wreath shape. I mounted that panel to a coordinating A2 card base, then accented the wreath with self adhesive jewels. I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Greetings (an older, previously released stamp set) to white cardstock in Detail Black, then trimmed into a thin banner strip. I added banner edges to each end, then adhered over a knot of gold thread with a thin foam strip.
For the second card I used the new Autumn Splendor stencil, and ink blended it with Distress Oxide inks. With the stencil still in place, I splattered the front with gold paint from the Gansai Tambi Starry Colors set (I used the yellow gold). Once dry, I pulled the stencil away and placed the panel in my MISTI. I stamped the sentiment from Autumn Greetings to the lower right corner in Detail Black. I mounted the ink blended panel to an orange A2 card base with foam adhesive, then accented with the Jewels Mix in golden yellow to finish.
I hope you like my jewel toned fall card set! If you have any questions about them, leave them in the comments and I will be sure to reply.
I created another card using some of the new STAMPtember® products. This one is rainbow & birthday themed - a perfect mix! I started by stamping the Circle Pattern cling stamp to Strathmore Bristol cardstock in fadeout ink. I then proceeded to no-line color the circles with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers - I have the 90 set, and I used a good portion of them. There aren't typically 10+ shades for each color, so I did some mixing to create new shades to make my ombre rainbow work out. I suggest having a scrap of the Bristol cardstock next to you so you can out the combo first and make sure it works.
Once I finished coloring, I diecut the panel and mounted it to an aqua A2 cardbase with foam adhesive. Next I diecut the Big Happy (from a previous release) script word from gold foil paper, and the shadow from vellum. I cut the word two more times from white cardstock, then stacked & adhered them with a glue pen. I mounted the word to the shadow, and adhered it to the card front at a slight angle. I stamped the rest of the sentiment from the Banner Greetings stamp set to white cardstock in Detail Black ink, then trimmed into a strip. I added a banner edge to just the left side, then adhered to the lower right corner of the card. I finished by accenting with Iridescent Bubbles.
That is all I have for you today! Before you move along with your day, I wanted to invite you to follow me on social media. I would love to be crafty friends!
I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday! Enjoy the STAMPtember® Party!!
