Today I get the opportunity to share in the celebrations of STAMPtember™ and I cannot tell you how honored I am to be able to do that, the last few weeks here on the Simon Says Stamp Blog have been amazing seeing all the creations and not to mention the most wonderful giveaways the lovely Simon Says Stamp family have shared! As a stamper and crafter for the last 18 years I have met the most amazing people from all across the world, the internet really has been a wonderful source of keeping in touch with not just my friends that I have made but, also to share inspiration with you all through my creations...being from Australia and living in a small town I feel at times a little isolated, but I always know that opening up the laptop and jumping online I feel closer.. I hope you all enjoy the rest of STAMPtember™!!
Now let's have Joy tell you a bit more about how she was inspired to make these gorgeous cards:
The new Soleil collection from Basic Grey is such a fun Summery collection and reminds me of those old movies that I used to watch as a child, you know the Gidget Movies or those old Elvis Presley ones, Fun in Acapulco..LOL and so when I started creating these cards for STAMPtember™ I knew I wanted something that was fun and totally took me back to those days...
By using my go to color, white, some fun bright papers to form strips and adding a sticker element to finish of the paper sections, I then stamped out a fun tag and added some other stamped elements, finishing with twine and of course could not go past adding a fun sentiment to finish this card....to me would be perfect for either gender...
I couldn't just stop with one card and seeing as Neon has finally come into my life once again, even though I resisted for a very long time, feeling I would have nightmares of my teen years of those colors and weird hairdo's, but I just knew it would be perfect for this card...
By stamping once again onto my go to color white, I took Neon Orange and Pink ink and went to town creating my own background pattern using the Hibiscus stamp from the Paradise stamp set, by adding a block piece of this stamped card stock to a white card and finishing by adding some simple score lines along with a sentiment it turned out to have an impact of color but yet clean and simple card to create...
But wait...there's MORE! You definitely don't want to forget to stop by Joy Taylor's blog for an extra special COUPON that you're only going to find on her blog!! Until tomorrow...HAPPYSTAMPtember™, everyone!!
