STAMPtember Exclusive with Pretty Pink Posh


Hello everyone, Welcome to the month long STAMPtember party by Simon Says Stamp.


STAMPtember® (stmp-tmbr) is defined by Simon Says Stamp in this way... an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping.  Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps.  However, it didn’t take long until we became a One Stop Shop.  Now STAMPtember is so much more than stamps!  This year you'll also see a focus on many other exciting products like dies, inks, notecards and some special surprises.  Our intention is to enhance your stamping experience!  Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business, and we are celebrating by releasing exclusive products with many of the industry's finest brands. Be sure to visit our Blog as the home base for the festivities!  Trust me when I tell you that the excitement this year is over the TOP, and we are planning fun surprises to keep you on your toes all month long!

I love collaboration. I think it brings the best creativity. I am excited to share the stamp set and die Simon Says Stamp has brought out in collaboration with Pretty Pink Posh. Woohoo! It is the very first stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh. I am so happy for Paulina and a huge congratulations to her.
Here is the photo of the Pretty Pink Posh stamp set and die.

Absolutely adorable don't you think? I love it. Here is the link to the stamp set at Simon Says Stamp store. 
Here is a sneak peek of projects that my colleagues have made.


These critter are so versatile that they can be used with Pretty Pink Posh's dies. Here is an example of how they can be used.


I cannot wait to receive them and play with them. Yes, my set is still in transit. So I do not have a project using this new stamp set and die but I do have a card using Pretty Pink Posh and Simon Says Stamp older products. So bear with me. I will share my card using this new set as soon as it arrives.

Here is first Christmas card for this year 2015 using Pretty Pink Posh dies, sequins and Simon Says Stamp dies and stamp set.

Christmas card #1

I have used Pretty Pink Posh's Stitched Duo 3 dies to die cut the window out of the tag in the die set. Then I die cut the window awning using the curved tag die from Stitched Duo 3 die set and Stitched Borders 3 die set. I sponged blue distress ink on the awnings. Then masked the white cardstock to sponge Mustard Seed distress ink. I then adhered the window tag suing foam adhesives on top of the sponged yellow ink.  I stamped the sentiment from Simon Says Stamp Holiday Hellos stamp set on the awning. Then adhered the awning on the window using foam again to give the dimension. Love the stitched details on the die cuts. The poinsettia is from Simon Says Stamp Poinsettia Parade die which I die cut, coloured with copics and layered glued them. I then brushed the flower with Wink of Stella shimmer pen. Finally embellished the card with Traditional Christmas sequins mix from Pretty Pink Posh and gold twine to tie a bow on top of the card.
