STAMPtember® (stmp-tmbr) is defined by Simon Says Stamp in this way… an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. However, it didn’t take long until we became a One Stop Shop. Now STAMPtember is so much more than stamps! This year you’ll also see a focus on many other exciting products like dies, inks, notecards and some special surprises. Our intention is to enhance your stamping experience! Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business, and we are celebrating by releasing exclusive products with many of the industry’s finest brands. Be sure to visit our Blog as the home base for the festivities! Trust me when I tell you that the excitement this year is over the TOP, and we are planning fun surprises to keep you on your toes all month long!
There are no words for how giddy I am this day is finally here. It’s been a dream of mine to design a stamp set of my own and I am thrilled that my first one is part of this special event. If you’ve followed my blog, you know that I’m a fan of little critters and six months ago, I came up with this concept of having animals peek out of a hot air balloon. You can create scenes with the set, or just highlight the balloon and animals. The best part of it all? There are coordinating dies!
How cute is this little puppy peeking out from the hot air balloon? In this set, you’ll find a bunny, mouse, cat and dog, all of them are super cute, but also really versatile. I chose to color my card with Copics this time around, but they would look darling with watercolors or even paper pieced!
I wanted to show how versatile these animals are with the Pretty Pink Posh dies I’ve released in the past. Below you’ll see examples of what they look like with the Stitched Film Strip, Stitched Duo 2 and Stitched Duo 1 die sets.
I wish I could tell you just how surreal it was to see these designs come to life and then get to stamp with them. It was even more amazing when I saw what my design team created with the set. Here’s just a peek at what they did… be sure to hop along to see their full cards! Plus, some of them even created how-to videos and tutorials!
I hope that you all love this stamp set and are inspired by the samples the design team created. A giant thank you to Simon Says Stamp for letting me be part of STAMPtember®.
NOTE: these sets are available exclusive through Simon Says Stamp and are limited edition. Once they sell out, they’re gone for good!
