STAMPtember® is Here… Video + New Products + Giveaway!

Hello! Today is a big day in the online stamping world – it is the first day of STAMPtember®! STAMPtember® is a month-long event at Simon Says Stamp that is full of inspiration, ideas, new products, guests and more. I will play a part in the fun… and today is the beginning.

First, I have a video for you plus two extra cards. Then? LOTS of new products. Finally? A giveaway! Check it out…

This first card uses a fun new stamp set and a technique I call “twice stamping”…

Come on… isn’t this stamp set the best?

I just adore this awesome Naughty Nautical stamp set. Isn’t is great!? And I used the Nautical Borders set to “twice stamp” and emboss the background.

So fun, huh? For all the supplies, scroll to the thumbnails at the very end of this post… after the giveaway.

How about another? This one is simple…

I used the new Thanks stamps and Thanks die… and what a perfect team they make. I layered four “thanks” (for depth) and inked the top with ink. I then stamped the rest of the greeting with that same ink, making a perfect match. Finally, I added shine to the die cuts and the notecard edges with the Marvy Silver Glitter Marker.

(And just for the record – if I were to do this card again, I would not have as much space between the three thank you messages. Just for the record. LOL.)

Next up, a fun one using the new So Beautiful stamp set. This one has lots of words you can piece together however you want. This one is perfect for our college girl, Kay…

I used a mix of inks to do the variety of colors. I also used the bold stripe image from the Nautical Borders set to add the diagonal lines on the notecard.

And the sequins? I love the three Moonshine Sequinslarge, medium and small. They offer a bit of shine (so cool in real life) and the three sizes rock. I added a tiny heart die cut to the large sequin and gems to all the others.

For all the supplies, scroll to the thumbnails at the very end of this post… after the giveaway.

So today Simon Says Stamp released a TON of new products. There are stamps and dies… and now stencils too! Here are links to my favorites:

  • My favorite die – hands down – is the giant Hello die. Love it. LOVE it. You will see a video soon.
  • I really like useful, practical stamp sets… and the Lots of Dots Stamp set is just that. This, too, will be in a video soon.
  • I make more thank you cards than any other, so I will get a ton of use out of the Thanks die and Thanks stamp set.
  • Oh, ship… I just LOVE the Naughty Nautical set I used above!
  • A sunshine die that covers an entire card? Yes, please.
  • Stencils! Stencils have so many possibilities… especially the Make a Scene Stencil. (Again – video soon.)
  • The Happy Pack is brilliant! It has lots of the best of the best papers that SSS carries. Try it!

Want to see all the new products? You can find them HERE

  6. I am new to the whole card making/stamping thing. I have watched hours and hours of videos from you and have learned sooo much. Thank you for the chance to win.

  7. What great new products. The ship set is on my wishlist. The greeting rocks! The thank you set looks very versatile as well. Thanks for showing us how to use a border stamp to make a pattern. Very Cool!

  8. Wow!! So many new goodies, I think my cart has gone outside my budget! Thanks for showing how to get more out of the borders set!

  9. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE them all, if I had to choose a fav, it would be a toss up between the thank you on a line die, feathers dies, make a scene stencils and the sketchy banner greetings!

  10. I just love your work. I just spent my 3-day weekend making cards! I have never allowed myself to work so many hours on my hobby. I made a ton of thank you cards and I few of the ship cards too.

  11. OMGeeeee! So many awesome new products! Love the nautical goodies! The “thanks” die and stamp set is at the very top of my list! As always, love your cards!

  12. While all the new stamps and dies are awesome; my faves are the 2 nautical sets and the 2 handwritten sentiments sets. The new stencils are also cool. Thanks for sharing your video and cards + the op to win.

  13. I totally agree! I’m loving most of this release specially that nautical background. Unfortunately, with limited funds we can’t get all of them (I wish, lol!) so thanks for the chance to win some!

  14. I always love your cards! They are colorful and warm. This September release is amazing and I thank you for the chance to win the stamp set and die!

  15. Hey Jennifer, love all these cards and the ship card is just awesome. You are so talented! Thanks for the give away, love all of simon says stuff, they are quite creative, which helps us to be creative too!!!!

  16. Awesome cards Jennifer. I think the double stamping technique looks so cool on your first card. Thanks for the opportunity to try to win! Wonderful stamp set and die!!! Stacy H-W

  17. I think the Thanks die and stamp set are my favorite. However I really like the words by Kristina Werner!

  18. Jennifer,
    You are such an inspiration! I faithfully follow your blog and I have learned so much from you!
    I am totally going to check out the stamp/diecut combos!


  19. I sure would like to have one of those stamp sets. They would make great sentiments for my OWH cards.
    I’m keeping my fingers cross.

  20. Awesome card! I love everything nautical and that card is so sweet. The background with tiny anchors, I may have to get that stamp set.

    I do wonder how the twice stamping works for you. I have tried something like that, but the second round of embossing powder sticks to the previously embossed images 🙁 I used a regular iron (for clothes) to emboss. I would have to wait like a week before embossing the same card again with different colours.

  21. Great cards as always, I love that Naughty nautical, it is so cute. I just added a lot to my wish list. Thanks for sharing!!

  22. Thanks for giving us so many cards, Jennifer. I’m overwhelmed with all the new stuff from Simon. It’s hard to pick a favorite. I always like the sentiments Kristina does but would love to get some of the word dies or how about those feathers?!Thanks for the chance to win.

  23. Oh boy, I think I’d better start playing in the lottery, in the hope of acquiring more funds for my ever growing wish list lol. Thanks for sharing all these wonderful cards. Looking forward to see more…

  24. Such a fabulous series of cards, and perfect showcases of the new release! Oh, to own them all!! As always, you videos are so inspiration! Thank you for sharing your techniques with us!
