Simon Says Stamp | STAMPtember 2023 Party

Hello there, I am delighted to be joining Simon Says Stamp today for their STAMPtember 2023 Party! Loads of designers have come together to celebrate STAMPtember, which kicked off yesterday. 

If you are new to STAMPtember, it is a month long celebration of all things crafty. There are releases, collaborations, giveaways, parties and lots of fun!

For today's party, each designer has a prize/promotion to share, so be sure to stop off at as many party guests you can to find all the prizes! More on that below.

For my card today I am using the new Simon Says Stamp Snowflake Circles Stamp Set. There is also a coordinating die set, that cuts out the circles but I don't have that, so simply used the set on it's own. It is a really versatile one! I stamped the snowflakes from the set onto a panel of white cardstock using Versamark Ink. I applied white embossing powder and heat set. 

Using an Ink Blending Brush, I blended on Tim Holtz Wilted Violet Distress Ink. Focussing the darker colour towards the top of the panel. I then cut the panel into a fishtail banner shape using a ruler and craft knife. I took the panel to my Splat Box and splattered on Tsuekineko Sparkle Sheer Shimmer Spritz and Permanent White Gouache

It was set aside to dry before adhering to a US A2 sized white card base with thin foam tape. I heat embossed the sentiment onto white cardstock and then added Wilted Violet ink on top, direct to paper. It was cut into two strips and adhered to the card with more thin foam tape. To finish off, I added a few Iridescent Bubbles

I thought I would add a little finishing touch to the envelope too, by simply stamping one of the circle images onto the flap of a Gina K Wild Lilac Envelope using Gina K Wild Lilac Ink. I think these circle images would be great for quick and easy gift tags as well. 


As mentioned, this is a fun party and you are all invited! It is also a scavenger hunt of sorts as you need to find all of the different prizes/promotions.
