Blog hop kit

Hi everyone,

This week is the week of the big annual bloghop over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge Monday! Ohh I'm totally excited! It's always such a happening. If you've arrived on my blog and you're not got here from Meisha's blog, please go back to the beginning of the bloghop by clicking here and then I'll meet you right back here when you've visited the others.

The challenge for this week is to use ANY Exclusive Simon Says Stamp product. It doesn't have to be a stamp. They have such great exclusive products. Like in the amazing Art Journaling Kit where everyone from the design team has made their project with, are very nice exclusives. It's designed by Shari Carroll, and she is joining us with this blog hop! She has designed the beautiful Blocked Circles stencil that is in the kit.

Included in the Simon Says Stamp Art Journaling Kit



It was so excited to get work with this fabulous kit! The background I made ​​by first adhering the dictionary page down with the Multi Medium Matte. To put it a bit more into the background I applied a thin layer of Gesso. From here I started building the layers. I'm really in love with the Blocked Circles Stencil. I used it with Modeling Paste and have it colored with Studio Classic Teal Paint.



The big flower I sprayed with Dylusion Squeezed Orange and Gold Lame Color Shine and highlighed it with Altered Orange Paint and the small flower with Tropicana Teal Color Shine and Classic Teal Paint. The sentiment is a quote from the book Alice in Wonderland. The Kelly Purkey Alphabet Stickers I left white, but so they would not disappear into the background I adhered them on the Black Polka Dot Washi Tape.



There were also two IndigoBlu stamps in the kit (PLEASE NOTE: these are only in the kit if you buy it in September). Simon Says Stamp will carry these stamps very soon. In my kit was the White Rabbit from Alice II and a flower Blooming Great from the stamp set. Because of the White Rabbit stamp I was inspired by Alice in Wonderland a bit. The rabbit I stamped on the Manila ATC that's included in the kit and colored with Distress Markers.

Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember®
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember® event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, life documenting, art journaling, and many forms of altering and expressing art.
