I happened to notice the current Wednesday challenge over on the Simon Says Stamp blog is Stamp It using a rubber or photopolymer stamp set (no digi stamps) featuring STAMPtember products. If you aren’t familiar with STAMPtember, it’s a special product event that takes place each September in the Simon Says Stamp online store. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the event, so there’s lots of cool coupons and exclusive product collaborations going on all month.
Since I’ve been purchasing STAMPtember products for the past few years, I decided I would play along with the challenge. I’m using the collaboration set from The Greeting Farm that was featured in last year’s STAMPtember event called Winter is Here. Because the STAMPtember collaboration sets are limited edition available only while supplies last, this set is no longer available.
I started by stamping the Christmas tree image from the Winter is Here stamp set on a piece of Very Vanilla cardstock from Stampin’ Up!® using Black Amalgam Ink from Gina K. Designs. The sentiment is from the Winter Scene stamp set from Simon Says Stamp stamped in Cherry Red dye ink from Gina K. Designs. After letting the ink dry for a few minutes, I colored the image using some Copic markers. Here are the colors I used.
Once I had the color finished, it was time for some die cutting. I used the Stitched Rectangle Dies from Simon Says Stamp to cut out the focal image panel as well as a piece of plaid patterned paper from the Holiday Cheer 6×6 paper pad from Photo Play (no longer available).
To assemble the card, I created a top-folding card base from Very Vanilla Thick cardstock. I adhered the stamped panel to the patterned paper using liquid glue then adhered that to the card front using foam tape. For a bit of embellishment, I added some clear shimmer pen to the star and ornaments on the tree and that completed my card.
I’m entering this card in the following challenge(s):
- SSS Wednesday Challenge – the current theme is Stamp It.
- HLS Christmas Challenge – the current theme is anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today. I hope you enjoyed the project I’ve shared. Until next time …
