Most people call it SEPtember, but as crafters we know better it's STAMPtember! It's a celebration of everything crafty. In addition to great new products and give aways we love that Simon Says Stamp collaborates with your favorite designers to create exclusive sets you can only find at Simon Says Stamp and only while supplies last.
Here's a peek at the stamp set with coordinating dies.
Our parent company Memory Box has created an exclusive set called True Friend. It's a beautiful floral set with coordinating sentiments of friendship.
I colored the floral with Copic Markers. To make it the focal point of my design I created two borders to frame the floral. First I cut the Tall Curve Side Border twice from white cardstock. I inked both panels with Distress Oxide in Seedless Preserves, Carved Pumpkin and Worn Lipstick. I splatted the panels with water and then topped them with white die cut Reeded Deco Curve Borders.
A simple sentiment from the stamp set and a sprinkle of woodgrain sequins (Brutus Monroe) are the finishing touches.
I hope you'll check out STAMPtember - it s a great way to find a new favorite. They've got lots of awesome designers with projects and designing tips to share.
