Simon Says Stamp® Stamptember 2017 Blog Hop!

September 01, 2017


Hello Everyone! the biggest event of the year at Simon Says Stamps! started  today.  This will be a month dedicated to stamping  with  a bunch of fun releases and collaborations between companies to offer us exclusive and beautiful products.

Simon Says Stamp release was launched today.  You can  see  all the products in the release here! and I would advise you to grab your favourites quickly as these products are sold out in a flash.

So I had the honour to be invited to participate in a blog hop  together with some of the most amazing stampers in the world! woo hoo.... We are celebrating the start of this event and we will be providing ideas and inspiration to use some of the new products and also a GIVEAWAY ( info at the bottom of this post)

I love Bulldogs and Pugs and I couldn't resist using Picture Book French Bulldog Die for my cards today.  Isn't he adorable?





I found Picture Book French Bulldog Die quite addictive  as I wanted to colour the little dog  in many different ways,  also trying to add character and interest to the image.   As I love watercolour I used  Nuvo Script Brushes and a Nuvo Aqua Brush on Bristol Paper to  easily apply washes of colours.

It is amazing how you can completely transform the die cuts' appearance depending on the colours you choose and the way they are applied .


 
The  new Embossing Texture Plate Cora   was terrific  for creating a  background for my cards today.  The texture produced by this embossing plate is subtle so it is not so disruptive. I love how it looks when applying Nuvo Mousses or chalky inks on top to reveal the embossed image a wee bit .  Simon Says Stamp also have a stamp that matches perfectly with this embossed image called Cora Background Stamp . I used it to make a previous project here!  so you can see how versatile these products are.

In the pictures above I applied white ink on  embossed black cardstock  and I also used  Big Greetings Stamp Set to complete  the card.



It is also easy to create cards for any occasion by simply adding  elements and swapping colours. For this  Xmas card I applied Nuvo Mousse Burnished Bronze on sand cardstock and I also used  the little bell stamps from Swell Christmas stamp set and the sentiment from Advent Sentiments Stamp Set.




Below is another card using  a sentiment from Amazing Messages stamp set and this time I added a little bow lace to make a more feminine composition.


And I also made a tag  using Picture Book French Bulldog Die with Amazing Messages Stamp Set   .



To finish I also made a CAS card  using Picture Book French Bulldog Die  and Big Greetings Stamp Set.   I know the doggy looks a little bit silly but I love his expression.  It makes me remember my little dog's squiggly eyes ( they were Pugs but they are so alike their cousins the French Bulldogs)


I also used Nuvo Crystal Drops  or sequins to add accents to  the cards and that was all!



GIVEAWAY!!!  Simon Stamps is giving away a $50 coupon to every stop in the hop so you have 13 chances to win!! All you have to do is to leave a comment below.   The winners will be  chosen over the weekend and announced  on Simon Says Stamp store blog next Tuesday Sep 5 /2017.
