Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - STAMP it

Hey ! I have been sitting on this news for a little while now and can finally tell you all....
I am a guest designer for Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge for the whole of September !!!!


You all know by now I am a huge Simon Says Stamp fan, there was cheering....and maybe a little dancing when I got the email !! And still cannot believe it, September is my birthday month so this has really made it extra special for me. 

Anyone onto the challenge !


The theme for the challenge is Stamp it ! (use a stamp) And for those who don't know (where have you been hiding !!) It is STAMPtember this month with Simon Says Stamp, so a brilliant theme to start the month.
The winner of the challenge will win a $50 voucher to spend at the store !

 I created two cards for this challenge.
The first one I created using just the leaves from the beautiful Hydrangea Blooms Stamp set (all supplies are listed and linked below) and the sentiment is from the Autumn Greetings set.

 I used a fun technique with ink pads for this card.Check out the video below where I show you both sets, and also how I created the card.

For the second card I used the Hydrangea Blooms set but this time I have used the main flower. In this set they have included the flowers open, like I have used below so you can colour them, or they have also included them solid so you can ink them up.
 I have heat embossed the flowers and then water coloured the whole piece using my Mission Gold water colours. I then heat embossed one of the sentiments from the set and die cut the piece out using a Stitched rectangle die. I then adhered it too a matching card base and added some sequins.

 Both of the stamp sets I have used are part of the big release for STAMPtember.

  2. Gorgeous cards! So excited for you Tracy! BIG congrats on the guest spot.

  3. This is fabulous Tracy. So delighted for you!

  4. Just gorgeous work huni!! I am so proud of you - doing a wiggle right now as my feet aren't up to the jigging! Having said that I'm not surprised they asked you because you have a lot of talent in those fingers sweet lady. Still a bit under par than usual but hoping those Vitamin D infusions will help soon as so much of my worsening is or could be, we really hope, linked to that. As I said to my brother it's like having fibro plus shingles or pneumonia both of which I've had and both of which totally floored me. Onwards and upwards one challenge a day, more likely two a week in my case lol! Karen xx

  5. I was wondering how you got the variegation on the leaves so stayed and watched your video. I have tried doing this with inks before but they react with the second ink so it didn't look good - awesome idea thank you sweetie! xx

  6. Love this card Tracy, great colours perfect for Autumn! Great technique layering the colours. Enjoyed your video hugs Tracy x
