Hello and welcome to the Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Super-Special Party! STAMPtember is a month long celebration over at Simon where they celebrate with their own release, as well as special collaborations with other populars in the industry. The Simon branded STAMPtember release will restock if/when it sells out, but the special collaborations do not! If you see something you have to have best just hop to it!
As you bebop through the STAMPtember Party HERE, be sure to collect the codes on the Simon graphics. Think of it as a scavenger hunt. You might find free with purchase stamp sets, dies, and a load of other goodness. Only one code valid per purchase. Order today, and maybe again tomorrow because they expire on 9/3. The odds of “needing” to make more than one purchase this month is HIGH! Look forward to more fun from Simon all month long!

Sympathy cards are never easy to make, but the Sending Sympathy stamp set surely helps with its heartfelt, but not overly gushy or boring, sentiments. A few simple botanical prints are perfect to stamp in black, emboss in white, or stamp in color.
Create this simple card by ink blending a roughy 2″ x 2″ piece of Dove White cardstock with Hero Arts inks in Rose Madder, Fresh Peach, and Orchid. Die cut Infinity Heart in lower right corner of an A2 Dove White panel (yes, I love Hero’s Dove White. It is rare that I use any other white cardstock, unless I am watercoloring!).
Stamp larger sentiment and botanical prints in Intensi-fied Black ink. For a subtle effect, stamp smaller sentiment in White Dye ink onto Pitch Black cardstock. Hold the open heart area over the blended panel for an idea of where to stamp each leaf set. Continue to build and fill in the design using the open heart as a guide. Pop up die cut heart panel over blended square and then onto a folded card base. Pop small sentiment strip in place to complete.
