stamptember guest [and Dylusions fun!]

I’m so honored to be a special guest over at Simon Says Stamp today – they’re celebrating STAMPTEMBER – you don’t want to be missing all of the great posts and guests. As I posted earlier this month, STAMPTEMBER is a very special time at Simon Says Stamp!

Simon Says Stamp 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. During 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.

If you’re just hopping over from Simon to see what I’m up to here – well hi and welcome! 🙂 I’ve got a *ton* of fun stuff coming up this week especially so I hope you’ll stick around!  Back to my project- I’m featuring Dylusions inks, stamps, and stencils in my guest post and showing you some fun techniques in my video too. I’ve got a guest post (and video) up today here – and here’s a sneak peek of my project:

At the end of my post I have a special discount code just for my blog readers – so don’t forget to grab that!!  Now let me show you a tag (that I started to make during the video over at Simon).

STAMPTEMBER is a great time to get ahead on some holiday craftiness.

I look at it like this: making some cards and tags and things now and then for a few months keeps me from burning out, and when the hectic holidays come around, I’m a bit ahead too.

I also like to make variations of an idea – like this tag uses a lot of the same supplies and techniques that my card used.

No, I didn’t mean to run poor letter S off the edge, next time I’ll remember to have the C go off a tiny bit so it fits better. Ah well, handmade is imperfect and that makes it great – right?

Here is a list of the supplies I used [images link to Simon Says Stamp]:

I’ve had such a blast playing and stamping and sharing today – I hope you’ve enjoyed too! I’ve got some stampy stuff in the works, and if you want to see more of what I’ve done with Dylusions products you can check out:

Yeah, I *LOVE* the funky Dylusions line by Dyan Reaveley and taking it + making it work for my style! Here are some of my personal favorites from her line – products I have, love, and use (plus three new items I want! Including the pre-order only art journal!)

One of the things I really love is that these products work seamlessly with my other favorites, and they are just pure creative FUN.

Happy Crafting!
