Simon Says: STAMPtember!!!

Welcome friends to Simon Says STAMPtember Blog Celebration!!

Welcome to the party, it's just the beginning of a month long celebration!!

I am using the brand new and beautiful Filigree Squirrel die cut from the Stamptember release, and will be sharing several projects I've made with it.

I also have a very special STAMPtember promotion for you at the end of this post, thanks to our very generous friends at Simon Says Stamp!


Oh Nuts!

Simple card in layers of black and white, and I hand lettered the words.

Black and Tan

Embossed background using the Simon Says Stamp September Card Kit (Sizzix Tim Holtz Kaleidoscope Texture Fade), and tied with a hand dyed ribbon.



Brown Squirrel

This time, I left all the die pieces in places, cut out the squirrel and glued it to black card stock. On the card, I used the Simon Says Stamp Gingham Stencil with Ground Espresso Distress Ink


Gray Squirrel

Created similar to Place Card 1, but I used an embossed background for the place card, like I did in Card 2. I inked the folder first, and then embossed it, in order to get the brown in the design. 

It would be fun to make a set of these for the Thanksgiving table! 

There are squirrels everywhere! I hope you have enjoyed my inspiration for the Filigree Squirrel!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would love to hear your thoughts on my projects!
