Simon Says Stamp: STAMPTEMBER!

Well, it took some time but my wonderful stamp set from Simon Says Stamp arrived. I was graciously given a stamp set as part of their annual Stamptember event! Every day this month, they have a wonderful collaboration with a stamping company to bring you some amazing exclusive sets! There’s prizes, inspiration and shopping codes. Let’s also not forget about the golden bone…..a very special prize given to 4 lucky people who order during this event!

I was given the Raindrops 6×8 stamp set.

Alternate Image Thumb Number 1

This is a gorgeous set with lots of beautiful sentiments and a wide variety of raindrops that you can mix and match to make your own backgrounds or to add as embellishments to your projects.

I have 2 cards for you today.

For this card, I stamped three of the larger raindrops and two of the smaller ones randomly on a sheet. I then heat embossed them with white embossing powder. I went over it in a rainbow of colors of ink to simulate a rainbow. I added the sentiment and a little vellum cloud. I also added some cute little iridescent rainbow pearls that are from Studio Katia.

For my second card, I paired one of the sentiments with a Gina K die set that I have in my stash. I created the background using some distress inks & water and then smooching that onto some Brea Reese cardstock. Again I added the raindrop pearls to finish this card.

I love how these turned out and I am especially thankful to Simon Says Stamp for allowing me to play along in their event this year. Make sure you stop by their blog each day so that you don’t miss out on the amazing collaborations that they have and also check out the store and pick up your exclusive products today! Once they are gone, they are gone so don’t wait!
