Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! How’s your STAMPtember going so far? What are your favorites from the new release? Yeah, I’m nosey! There are so many cool things that it’s hard for me to narrow down my favorites! Anyhoo, today’s project is featuring the new Black Eyed Susans stamp set, so let’s run through the details!
Once all of the coloring was complete, I used a Copic Multi Liner 0.5 to add some additional black dot detail to the centers of the flowers. Next, I stamped a bee from the set twice in the same way and colored those using one of the yellow markers along with the Copic 110 Special Black marker. For a bit more added detail, I went over the wings using a Wink of Stella marker as well before fussy cutting them.
I adhered the bees to the panel as well using SSS Foam Squares, before adhering everything to the card base. No card is complete without some bling, so I added some PFS Iridescent Clear Drops to finish up this one.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to swing by and check out the entire STAMPtember release! Have yourself a wonderful day and stay awesome!

There’s tons of inspiration, as well as exclusive promotions, so you’ll want to check those out for sure! Check the bottom of this post, for my STAMPtember promotion! For today’s project, I’m featuring the new Layered Pumpkin die. This project was super fun to put together, so let’s go through the details!
To begin, I pulled out five different yellow and orange scraps of patterned paper from my stash and cut each of them using the SSS Layered Pumpkin die. There is a solid pumpkin die in this set, and I cut that from a brown cardstock so that I would have a base for assembling the pumpkin.
I adhered the pieces of the pumpkin in their spots using liquid glue and then used some Copic Markers in Y02, Y17, YR24 and YR27 to add a bit of shading for a little more added interest. Once the pumpkin was assembled, I got to work of the rest of the card.
That does it for this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Don’t forget to stop by and check out the entire STAMPtember release! You won’t be disappointed!

Hello, Hello and welcome back! Thanks for stopping by! Yup, I’m still on a StampTember kick! There’s just so many good things in this release, it’s hard to stop! For today’s project, I’m featuring another card using the new Fine Petal Background Plate. This is such a gorgeous die when it’s cut! Let’s get into the details!
I began by cutting a panel of Neenah Classic Crest 110lb cardstock using the Fine Petal Background Plate. I did have to run this through about four times to get a really good cut, but hopefully your machine cuts better! Once the panel was cut, I zhooshed most of the petals giving them plenty of definition and dimension. I did leave some un-zhooshed at the bottom for my sentiment.
I had some blue mirror cardstock that I wanted to use, so I adhered the petal panel to a color coordinating blue cardstock using liquid glue.
I cut the SSS Hugs sentiment once from this blue mirror cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb. I also cut the shadow twice from Neenah 110lb and glued all of those layers together.
My sentiment was then glued to the bottom of the petal panel where I left the petals un-zhoosed. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. Lots of dimension on this card for sure!
That finishes this one up! Super simple and quick! That’s the wonderful thing about background plates! I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire StampTember line up! Lots of great things to choose from! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friends and welcome back! In today’s post, I’m featuring a new stamp set from the StampTember release called, Raindrops. What a cute set this is! I’ve also made another card using the raindrops as flowers! That was super fun! So let’s get into the details!
I don’t do mixed media cards very often, but I have to say that I really enjoy the process when I do take time to do them! So, for this card, I started with a panel of watercolor paper and Ranger Crackle Paste through the SSS Falling Snow Stencil. Once the paste was dry, I pulled out the Distress Oxide inks in Hickory Smoke, Black Soot and Chipped Sapphire. I smooshed the ink on my glass work surface and spritzed it with water and smooshed my paper in it. I did only do one color at a time though.
Once I was satisfied with how the panel looked, I arranged and added the raindrops diagonally across the panel using foam tape. This panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape again, before being adhered to the card base, which is Neenah Classic Crest 110lb.
That finishes up this mixed media project for today! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty as well! Stop by and check out the entire StampTember release, and don’t forget about all of the amazing collaboration sets that will be released all month long! Have a wonderful day!
Hello Crafters, and welcome back! Thanks so much for stopping by! Yay for StampTember, right?! What are your favorites from the release? I can honestly say that I have too many! Who’s with me? There’s just so much to choose from! I had to order a few of the new ink pads to try them out! They are all just so yummy! For today’s project, I’m featuring the new Leaves Wreath Stencil once again with fall colors. So let’s jump right into the details!
I went ahead and worked on the sentiment using the SSS Warm Hugs die. I cut the detail die once from Gold Mirror cardstock and twice from Neenah 110lb. The shadow was then cut twice using black cardstock, and all of those were then adhered together using liquid glue.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’re enjoying seeing all of the inspiration from the SSS design team! Stop by and check out the entire StampTember release, and let me know your favorites! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Lovelies! I hope you’re doing well! Thanks so much for stopping by. StampTember is always so exciting with all of the new products! What are your favorites from the release? Today’s project is featuring the Interlocking Leaves Background stamp, so let’s just get right to it!
I opted for the SSS You’re the Best die. I cut it twice from black cardstock and once from Mirror Gold cardstock. I removed the letters for “the best” on one of the black die cuts, and inlaid the gold letters in their place using liquid glue. I adhered the rest of the sentiment to the shadow and glued it to the ink blended panel.
This panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape for dimension, and everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb. No card is complete without embellishments, so I added a few PinkFresh Studio Gold Metallic Pearls to finish it up!
That does it for this card! Have you checked out the entire StampTember line up yet? Do you have any favorites? My wallet is screaming right now! Thanks so much for stopping by and don’t forget to stay awesome friend!
Happy StampTember! Thanks so much for joining me today! I hope you’re having a wonderful day! Have you checked out the entire StampTember release yet? What are your favorites? I’m looking forward to seeing all of the collaboration sets for the month! Today’s card is featuring the new Raindrops stamp set, but used in a different way! Let’s jump right in!
I used the SSS Stitched Daisies die set to cut a few centers from black cardstock, and then adhered the petals to the back using liquid glue, in rainbow order. For the sentiment, I opted to use one from the SSS XL Greetings 2 set. I stamped the sentiment using VersaFine Onyx Black ink and heat set it using Ranger Clear Embossing Powder. I then repeated the stamping and embossing two more times, but using VersaMark ink on those. I do it this way because my paper always warps slightly during the embossing process, and by stamping in VersaMark, you don’t see any mistakes if it doesn’t line up perfectly correct the second and third time because of the warping.
I used the SSS XL Greetings 2 coordinating die to trim out the sentiment, and cut it a second time for stacking purposes. I trimmed the Tiny Dots panel using Taylored Expressions Stitched Rectangle die and adhered the sentiment in the center using foam tape. I then placed foam tape on the back of the flowers and adhered those around the sentiment, trimming off any excess. The panel was then adhered to a black panel using foam tape, and then to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb.
That finishes up this project! I hope you enjoyed it! I quite like using these “raindrops” as flowers! Stop by and check out the entire StampTember release and let me know your favorites! Have a great day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
Hello Crafty Friend, and happy StampTember! StampTember is always so exciting! So many new products, and so many awesome collaboration sets! To celebrate, we are having a huge blog party! There will be tons of inspiration AND a scavenger hunt for exclusive codes to the Simon Says Stamp store! You can check out the SSS Blog for more inspiration, more details and more links to blogs with even more exclusive codes! You’ll find my exclusive code below! Today’s card is featuring this new, awesome, Fine Petal Background Plate. Such a cool plate to play with! So, let’s get right into the details of it.
Once the panel was cut, I zhooshed most of the petals to give them some good dimension! I left some petals near the bottom un-zhooshed, is that even a word? Anyhoo, I left some flat so that I had a place for the sentiment. I then adhered the ink blended panel to a black cardstock panel using liquid glue. I thought the black background made a bold impact against the rainbow!
Next, I used the SSS Hello die and cut that from black glossy cardstock three times and adhered all of those together using glue. I also cut the shadow once from vellum and glued that behind the sentiment. This was then glued to the panel near the bottom.
This panel was then glued to the card base, which is Neenah 110lb. This was a super simple and quick card, but I love how it turned out! I really love the black elements combined with the rainbow colors!
That does it for this one! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope you’ll stop by and check out the entire StampTember line up! There’s so many great things in this release! Here’s my exclusive code for the SSS store! Join the scavenger hunt for more codes! Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome sweet friend!
Hello Crafty Friend, and happy StampTember! This is my second StampTember, and it’s always so exciting to see all the new products and all the new collaboration sets! Have you taken a look at the release yet?! There’s 150 Simon brand products released today, can you believe that?? Today’s card is featuring the new Leaves Wreath Stencil with some ink blending, so let’s get right into it!
For the sentiment, I chose the SSS Kindness Matters die and I cut that twice from black cardstock and once from Gold Mirror cardstock. I made sure the letters stayed in one of the black die cuts, and popped them out of the second black die cut. This is because, I’m going to inlay the gold letters atop the black ones. I put foam tape on the back of the black die cut to ensure that the letters stayed in place and then adhered the second black die cut to it using glue. I then inlaid the gold letters using glue as well.
I adhered the sentiment to the center of the ink blended leaves using the foam tape that I had already put on the back. I then used PinkFresh Studios Gold Metallic Pearls to adhere to the dots that the stencil creates. I then adhered the panel to a black panel using foam tape, because I always love to use black on my cards. It just gives a lovely contrast in my opinion. Everything was then adhered to the card base, which is also Neenah 110lb.
That finishes this project! I hope you enjoyed it, and I hope it inspires you to get crafty! Let me know your favorites from the new StampTember release in the comments! Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog party! Have a wonderful day and don’t forget to stay awesome!
