STAMPtember® Work It Wednesday Challenge!


Hello and welcome to a special STAMPtember® edition of Work It Wednesday!!

On the last Wednesday of every month, we want to see what you’re creating! The Simon Says Stamp community is so very talented,  and we want to see more of your cards and projects every month.

We thought this would be a great way for all of you to ‘stretch your creative muscles’ and share what you’ve been working on. So we’ll give you a little challenge each month, and you’ll have until the following month to share what you’ve made. Please limit entries to 3 per month.

Since it’s STAMPtember® and we’re celebrating with you all month long, we wanted to host a special Work It Wednesday with one of the amazing new Color Recipes from Shari Carroll! She created a special color combination just for us and this months challenge!


And that’s not all! We also have 3 guest designers on the blog today to share what they’ve created using these awesome fall colors from the Simon Says Stamp color collection!

We also have 3 winners from last months Work It Wednesday challenge to announce! You can see all of the projects submitted for August here. Congrats to the following winners:

Amber Rasmuss
Leslie Webster
Marcie Sharp

Please email Samantha ([email protected]) with your mailing address and we’ll get your prize sent out to you.

Now onto this month’s challenge! We’d love to see your cards created with the color recipe above. These colors are perfect for fall or you can completely go in a different direction and share how you use them to create a non-fall themed card! We can’t wait to see what you create!!


Since it’s a special Work It Wednesday, we’re giving away 3 prizes from our STAMPtember® prize stash to 3 randomly selected people who participate in this month’s challenge!


Once you’re done creating, share your project below!
Now you know what to do! WORK it!

  1. Wonderful color combo! And beautiful use of it on all three cards!
    My favorite is Laura’s wonderfully clean, but vibrant wreath card – stunning!

  2. Wow, love this autumn inspired color palette, I hope to use it in some of the cards I’m making this month. Awesome! The 3 cards are gorgeous, thanks for sharing.

  3. I love the colors, but I don’t really know how this works? Do you have to have a blog? If not, where do you post your cards? :-(

  4. Oh, my, what a gorgeous color combo and what AMAZING cards from the guest designers! I am a huge fan of these ladies and love their work! I saw a peek of Wanda’s card on FB and had to rush over to say how beautiful it is…. and now my jaw is hanging open even more over all these lovelies! Amazing job everyone!

  5. Are you required to use the SSS inks and cardstock, or can it be other products in the same or similar color combination?

  6. Love all the projects! Laura, can you tell me how you got the stamped greeting (G) on top of the popped up wreath? It looks so cool! Thanks for all the examples!
    Many Blessings,

  7. This is a beautiful color grouping. I love all the rich colors of Autumn.
    These cards are beautiful. The wreath and pumpkins are such a great
    element on these cards.
