Hello everyone! I hope y'all had a great weekend! I moved over the weekend and have a ton on my plate (actually living and working between 2 places right now and it's right chaos LOL!), but still getting videos filmed and work done! Anywho I'll update more on that later once I'm settled in and things aren't so crazy.
The next STAMPtember® set has been revealed! This one with Concord & 9th!
You can check out the Monster Hugs set HERE <-----click!
Also there's a category on Simon Says Stamp for ALL the STAMPtember® exclusives HERE <-----click! Like previous STAMPtember® collaboration sets - these are exclusive to Simon Says Stamp and while supplies last. Once they're sold out and/or STAMPtember® is over they're gone!
Here's what I created with the new set:
Of course as soon as I realized there was a Happy Halloween sentiment in this set I HAD to use it. I was originally going to make a birthday card (tho if someone's birthday falls on or near Halloween this card would be PERFECT IMO) but then saw the sentiment and decided to make this Halloween-themed.
I stamped the images in the set with Versafine Onyx Black ink and clear heat embossed them (I LOVE that this set gives you options for his hand and gaps on the string and sign handle to fit perfectly around his hand - no masking or fiddling required!). I then used the new AlteNew watercolors to paint the image (initial impression of the watercolors is I like them! This was literally the first time I've used them tho - I need to play with them more!), and Black Soot Distress paint for all the splatter.
I die cut a piece of white card stock with the largest Simon Says Stamp Wonky Rectangles wafer die that I used on the front of the card, and stamped the monster and the "waving" hand this time with Twisted Citron Distress Oxide ink. I then stamped another couple sentiments from the Monster Hugs set and that was it!
