Simon Say Stamp STAMPtember Celebration

** For 2018 Caring Hearts Card Drive Update, please scroll down to previous post.**




Hi peeps. Today, I am joining many other cardmakers to celebrate STAMPtember.

STAMPtember® (stmp-tmbr) is defined by Simon Says Stamp… an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate our community of stampers. This is annual event that's highly anticipated by paper crafters everywhere. You can find the party going on strong on Simon Says Stamp Blog.

There'll be a lot of things going on. So, make sure you check their blogs and check out the party blog lists as well. There's hidden surprise throughout the blogs. 

Now, I got to play with a super sweet Donut dies that's simply too sweet to resist. I had so much fun playing with it, that I ended up with 2 cards for today.



For this first card, I mixed supplies from several companies. I made the background using MFT Brick stencil. Next, I die cut and piece together the donuts and adhere to the card with foam tapes. Then, I have this Candy Sprinkle mix from Honey Bee Stamps that's just the perfect embellishments for the donuts. I adhere the sprinkles one by one randomly on the donuts. 

And, of course, in my eyes those sprinkle add so much happy feeling to the donuts that I have to add eyes that are sparkling using black enamel accents. Sentiment is from Concord & 9th Enjoy It set.

Now, I went with bold colors with my 1st card. So, for my 2nd card, I went all pastel with watercolor.



For the background I used another MFT stencil. I think this stencil been discontinued, but I am a big fan of their stencils. Any way, I simply laid the stencil on top of the watercolor cardstock and loosely add the watercolor. Let dry.

Die cut the donuts, watercolor and adhere to the panel with foam tape. Since, I want to make a celebration theme, I think it's only appropriate for the donut to wear party hat (from Honey Bee Pinky the Pig set). Stamp sentiment and add some sequins.

There you go. 2 happy donuts cards. Perfect to celebrate this long weekend, right?

Well peeps, I am glad you get to join us on this STAMPtember celebration & I hope you enjoy today's visit to my blog. Thank you for stopping by & may your weekend be a wonderful one.
