STAMPtember® Release Blog Hop!



Hello and Welcome to the Simon Says STAMPtember Blog Hop!  This release is absolutely the BOMB with so many new exclusive stamps, dies, stencils, and NEW INK!!!!  

You can find all the new products HERE.

I've used the new Wishing Trees Die along with the Christmas Blessing die.  I started with a watercolored panel using Peacock Feathers Distress Ink adding water splatters.  The Wishing Tree Die is longer than what I've shown here but I simply trimmed the length that fit across my card and removed some of the trees.  To the trees that remained, I've added some water splatters, white Enamel Accents, and Glossy Accents.

Christmas Blessings

My sentiment was diecut with the amazing gold glitter paper from DCWV and adhered randomly to still give the sentiment some dimension.  The last detail added was random drops of Glossy Accents.


Christmas Blessings2

Now for the FUN part!
