Welcome to my very favorite crafty month of the year, STAMPtember!
STAMPtember is a month-long celebration at Simon Says Stamp and every day there will be exclusive collaborations, contests, prizes, special promotions, announcements, and more surprises! I will be sharing lots and lots of projects with you all month long! I can't wait to share everything with you!
Let's kick off this STAMPtember party with a couple of cards featuring new stamps and dies from the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Release! I am combining the new Big Picture Book Hippo, Big Picture Book Lion, Tiny Words Stamp Set, and Plank Background with the previously released Script Hello and Mini Hearts Die for these hello cards today!

Watch the creation of these two big picture book cards from start to finish below or click HERE to watch in HD:
The backgrounds for both cards was created using the new Plank Background Stamp. I stamped the background on Bristol Smooth Cardstock using clear embossing ink and heat embossed with white embossing powder. The different areas of the background were watercolored with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen. The sky's the limit with great background stamps! They can be used in so many ways!
Borders were trimmed from smooth white cardstock and adhered along the bottom edge of both cards. Sentiment phrases from the new Tiny Words Stamp Set was stamped with black ink. The Big Picture Book Lion and Big Picture Book Hippo were die cut from several different cardstock and assembled as shown.
The Script Hello was die cut from black and white cardstock, layered and adhered above the stamped phrase.
Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers were used to color a scrap of Bristol Smooth Cardstock and then the Mini Hearts Die was used to die cut the heart accents used to complete the design.
