Welcome to STAMPtember®, friends! What is STAMPtember, you may be asking yourself? Well, I was in the same boat this time last year as a new cardmaker and it boils down to this: one month of total awesomeness brought to you by Simon Says Stamp! During the month of STAMPtember, you’ll see not only new products, such as the ones I’ll be using today (designed by yours truly!) but also exclusive collaborations that will only be available until they are gone! And there are some good ones coming!
All of the new CZ Design products, however, will be permanent adds to the Simon Says Stamp store, so even if they sell out, they will be back in stock! I’ll be sharing a few cards over the next few days that are also going to be permanently added to the store! I don’t even know what the collaborations are yet, so I’m super stoked to see what is coming out this month, too!
My cards today feature two things: my brand new Great Things stamp set and coordinating dies, a brand new CZ Design Good Luck Word and Shadow die set, and a cool background stamp from Simon Says Stamp.
The Good Luck word and shadow die are a standalone set designed to die cut a word and matching shadow.
While I created two cards (one for each of of my children who are starting MAJOR transitions today!), I’ll be showing you how I made the Good Luck card in today’s video.
On a personal note, if you are reading this on September 1, Dan and I are in the process of moving Cole into his dorm today and when we return home, we will be stepping foot into a nest that will have just two full-time residents for the first time since March of 1996.
This is big, friends. Big changes for all of us.
I really am sending the biggest good luck vibes to Aidan (who is starting law school this week!) and Cole, who will be going through his Freshman orientation all next week.
Time flies and great things are at hand.
