Simon Says Stamptember + Altenew Collaboration

Hi guys!  If you’ve been following card making on the social media platforms you’ll know that it’s Stamptember in the stamping world!  Simon Says Stamp is the organizer and aaaallllll the stamp companies are participating with exclusive stamp sets created by each of the collaborating companies and only available while supplies last, during the month of Stamptember!  The nice folks at SSS sent me an Altenew designed and sponsored stamp set to play with, called Dainty Sprig.

Here is the card I made with it.  I would have liked to pursue all the ideas I had for this set, but since our daughter’s wedding last week I’ve been playing catch-up in several other areas of my life and those ideas will have to wait for a little bit. 😉

I love the airy, graceful look that can be achieved by stamping and heat embossing with white powder on a white background and letting the paint color inside and outside the lines define the shapes and edges.  I used one of my favorite color palettes for this floral color scheme; it’s tried and true and I’m still not tired of it!

I paired the stamped and painted design with some text patterned paper, a narrow strip of green polka dotted paper and some bow-tied baker’s twine.  This stamp set has 4 sweet sentiments that I already know will get a lot of use!

Thank you to Simon Says Stamp for inviting me to join the party and thank YOU for stopping by today!
