Hey everyone! Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge! If you are visiting from Heather’s blog– HELLO!!! 🙂
Thank you for joining us for the Make It Colorful challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too. This week the challenge is STAMPtember® Use a Stamp and Blog Hop. (be sure to read to the end to see where to HOP to next) You must create a project using rubber or clear stamps, no digi images allowed. Remember you can enter up to 5 times! 🙂
We are showcasing the new STAMPtember® products that have just been released. It is a HUGE release with loads of fabulous stamps, dies, stencils and much more! As always Simon Says Stamp will be giving away $50 voucher to shop at the fabulous Simon Says Stamp Store.
I have a Simon Says Grab Bag to give away (as does each of us on the SSS Wednesday Design Team) all you need to do is leave me a comment AND enter the challenge!
OK- so now onto my creations!!! I had so much fun with the new STAMPtember® products that I received in my mailbox that I created not one, not two… but THREE cards to share with you today!
Last week I was on Periscope sharing how I color in images with watercolors, mostly Distress Inks, but I shared a little about watercolor pencils too. It was such a fun broadcast! I felt like I was hanging out with my crafty friends! While on the scope I colored all of the images on my cards today. I just needed to come up with the backgrounds and card designs. If you would like to learn more about Periscope you can read my informational page here. I plan on scoping once a week with techniques, sharing products etc. Be sure to follow me!
For the first card I want to share with you I used the new Radiant Sunflower Dies and Big Scripty Greetings Holiday. Yep, HOLIDAY- but I created a non holiday card. I love doing that – getting more bang for your buck with a stamp set!
For the second and third card I used the new Back to School set. What I didn’t realize when I first got this set is my facebook friend and fellow New Englander, Nina-Marie designed it! How cool is that!?!?! As soon as I saw that nerdy kitty I just knew I was going to have to color it to look like Mister Harley. Which by the way, did you see his back to school photo I shared on instagram?
Can you see the resemblance? I asked everyone on Periscope what color the text book should be and teal got the vote- perfect, as it IS my favorite color. My last card is with the school bus in the same Back to School stamp set. I will admit, I colored a bit out of the lines. It’s tough to keep up with the chat on Periscope AND color in the lines. I still like how this card turned out! I plan on sending both of the back to school cards to my nephews 🙂
The next person on the hop is Jennifer- be sure to visit her and leave a comment for another chance to win!
Also if you are on instagram tag your photo with #ssswchallenge 🙂
There will be ONE lucky winner that will be chosen at random, it could be you!
I really hope to see some of my blog readers join in on all the fun and play along with the challenge. I can’t wait to stop by some of your blogs and take a peek at what you have made. Have a wicked fun time creating!
Love that sunflower and your cat’s bow tie!

Three lovely and fun cards Jenn and the sunflower is so bright and pretty and the two with school themes are great for this time of year with all the kids starting their new school year. I adore that cat and what a great bow tie too. x
These are all so cute! I got such a chuckle out of the cat in the bow tie! It reminds me of the time we put a bow tie on our cat for Halloween-he didn’t seem to mind it!
Wow! Not just one card but three! i love those holiday sentiments and that you’ve used them for an everyday card! Cute bowtie!
Oo, that sunflower is so nice. Your Mr. Kitty looks so handsome and dignified.

Love your fun cards! Awesome watercoloring! TFS
I had to laugh when I saw the nerdy cat. He is darling.
I love the sunflower. It is so colorful. It pops off the purple and the wood background fits right into the design.

Oh, WOW! Beautiful, rich and vibrant colours on this collection of cards and I especially love the first! That sentiment is also a must have!
Thanks for sharing and have a great day!
Love your coloring, Jenn! Reminds me to use my distress inks in other ways. Speaking of multi-purpose, great idea to use a sentiment in another way!
I really like the “be joyful” font and the sunflower. I have never seen a cat with a bow tie on but he does look quite smart.
All darling … and, if I may say so, your school bus card would be less perfect if perfectly colored within the lines! Fantastic … as is … and so is your cat!
Cards? The cat has totally captured my attention – what a hoot!! Oh! and your cards are really adorable … I have my eye on that sunflower!
Such a great collection of cards – your “School” themed ones are so adorable (just like Mister Harley)

Beautiful cards – I particularly like how you made the ‘splogy’ background in bright colors as they make the central images POP!!
JENN!!!! Your cards turned out so adorable! I had so much fun watching you color all these images on Periscope. The background on the sunflower card is just gorgeous, that purple with the yellow is STUNNING. And I ADORE your Mr. Harley card… and the photo of him with his bow tie is too stinkin’ cute!!!!!
