Throwback Thursday – STAMPtember® Edition!

Throwback Thursday Simon Says Stamp

Welcome to another edition of Throwback Thursday—a trip back in time! For each throwback, we’ll be spotlighting fantastic cards and projects using products from previous releases. The new stuff is always SO fun, but think about all of those great products you’ve collected and set aside. They are STILL AWESOME! And we want to inspire you with fantastic inspiration from our creative archives.

Oh my goodness! We are on the veritable BRINK of STAMPtember®, and we couldn’t be more excited! It’s seriously like Christmas and our birthday all rolled into one with the addition of the biggest crafty celebration on the planet! We hope you are STOKED, because WE sure are!

To whet your appetite, we’re throwing it back to STAMPtember® 2018, and sharing inspiration from last year’s extravaganza. Our  STAMPtember® release is always huge, and you might remember some pretty spectacular products from last year’s STAMPtember® collection. In celebration of the upcoming month of stampy happiness, let’s take a look at some glorious cards created with goodies from our 2018 STAMPtember® release!

First up is this beautiful project from Nichol Spohr:

Nichol Spohr Simon Says Stamp August 2019 Throwback Thursday Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set and Thinking of You die

Alcohol Pearl Inks, Yupo paper, and Alcohol Lift Ink were all a part of the magic that Nichol created with this gorgeous design. The backbone is of course the Beautiful Flowers 2 stamp set that was released last STAMPtember®. You can watch her create this card on YouTube HERE, and you can see Nichol’s original post HERE.

Next, let’s throw it back to this clean and graphic design from Kristina Werner:

Kristina Werner Simon Says Stamp August 2019 Throwback Thursday Birthday Numbers stamp set

No matter the number of years (birthday or anniversary or whatnot), the Birthday Numbers stamp set and coordinating dies are perfect for creating custom cards. I love how Kristina added balloons, a party hat, a bow tie, and a smile to this adorable number five. You can find Kristina’s original blog post HERE, and you can see this card come together on YouTube HERE.

And let’s not forget this totally spooky design from Jessica Frost-Ballas:

Super cool ink blending spritzed with water and glow in the dark embossing powder are all a part of the eerie Halloween design that Jessica scared up using the Bwahaha stamp set and coordinating dies released last STAMPtember®! That sparkly haunted house is unreal! You can find a link to Jessica’s original blog post HERE, and you can also see her create this card on YouTube HERE.

And finally this cutie pie card from Heather Ruwe:

Heather admits that she’s not a cat person, but who can resist the Right Meow stamp set? These cool kitties look so cute frolicking about in the Repeating Circles die. I think I need a scarf like the feline in the top left! You can check out Heather’s original blog post HERE.

Thanks for throwing it back with us and checking out these cool projects from four talented ladies!

  1. STAMPtember 2019 is just around the corner! Can it be? :) Looking for more great inspiration from everyone!

  2. How come the stamps we reserved in July, you took the money and it is way past Aug 8 and you are still processing instead of sending our orders. If you don’t have it yet- say so don’t say processing.

    1. It literally says on the item page in red the date when reserved/pre-ordered items will be mailed out. It also says that orders placed that contain reserved items will not ship until those items are ready on the date it states. YOU choose to finalize and therefor pay for the order knowing that you pay for the order once it’s submitted but that it won’t ship out until the pre-ordered items are available.

  3. Oh! That birthday numbers card is so cute! Gotta get that stamp set. The thought of Stamptember and eventually Diecember makes me dizzy in a good way.

  4. LOVE these, especially the 5. It reminds me of the drawings I used to do as a kid. I would make a number or letter, and then make a picture out of it.

  5. Always enjoy these throwbacks…always find a new idea for products I’ve already purchased. So appreciate these Thursday blogs. tfs

  6. Thanks for reminding us–love the cute cats and the alcohol ink with lift ink technique, have to remember to use that one too!

  7. My favorite is the #5 Birthday Card! With 14 grandchildren I am always on the lookout for cute birthday card ideas!
