Simon Says Stamp It! It's Stamptember!

Happy Monday, friends! We are celebrating STAMPtember at Simon Says Stamp all month long, and we are getting the party rolling this week at the Monday Challenge!

Please join me in welcoming this month's guest designer, Carol Harper of "Carol Stamps". I know you will love seeing her awesome additions this month! 

I got this cute die "Picture Book Sweet Cat" from the new STAMPtember 2017 collection, and decided to make a couple of pink kitty tags.

I used watercolor paper as the base, rounded the top corners and punched in an opening. Then I used Distress Oxide inks and Simon's Circular Lace stencil to add and subtract color.

I wanted to add some words to my tags, as well as a few hearts.

I love coloring my own ribbon and have done it many times with the distress inks, but this is the first time I tried it with the Distress Oxides, and it works great! Rub some on the craft sheet, spritz that and the ribbon with water, and "smoosh" it into the ink. Crumple it up and let it dry.

I decided to use the lace stencil again and add a bit of design to the kitties bellies. On the top one I also went in with black pen a bit, and on both I used Wink of Stella to add a bit of shimmer.

Now I have two cute pink kitty tags to add to a gift or use for a friend!

STAMPtember is revving up and I hope you will join us in celebrating stamping this month! If you have Simon Exclusives, we would love to see them!
