Stamptember Blog Hop


t

Whoo Hoo its Stamptember at Simon Says Stamps with exclusive stamps, dies and inspiration, not forgetting special offers. At Simon Says Stamps Challenge we're going to celebrate with a Blog Hop.

Simon Says was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. Over the past 10 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember ™ event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making,scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.


We have show stopping $100 voucher to win
 but wait there is more.
There is $25voucher prize on each of the Simon Says Stamps Challenge Team blogs.

In order to win the prizes you have to make a creation with a stamp on, link to Simon Says Stamps Challenge then you must enter the challenge by posting to the challenge blog using the blue frog as well as either commenting or added your name to any linky gadget the blog participators have

Not only did the team use a stamp but we are also showcasing Washi tape, now I'll going to be honest I don't get this tape and I hadn't a clue how to use it. Of course now that I've checked out the team I want more than my one roll which by the way is Love my tapes Polka dots Red on White which I put on white and patterned card and then cut out banners.
My stamp is Penny Black Snowy with MFT picket fence and a Living Style embossing folders, Oh and not forgetting my Martha Stewart Holly punch. The papers could be Echo Park or Cosmo Cricket cos I can't find the pack since I've tidy up a bit.
An awful lot of stickles and some flowersoft and fun flock for his hat.
You should of arrived from Dawny but if not pop back to the Simon Says Stamps Blog to start from the beginning. and now you're hop skipping and jumping to Heather
Now in my case when you've made your card and are hoping along you need to enter you name using the blue frog to make it easier to pick a winner, many thanks.

You have until Wed 12th September 8am Ohio time. 1pm UK time, 2 pm CET to join in :-)

    I love the GIANT pompom on the snowman's hat and how you've made it so fuzzy. It's practically as big as his head!

    (I'm very charmed by your "about me"; sometimes I'm pretty sure that my hobby is actually craft shopping, with making stuff just an excuse to buy more stuff.)
