Terelisa made a Bird House Advent Calendar using a STAMPtember® Ornate Ornaments Clear Stamp Set. She recycled cardboard and stole screws and bolts from husband’s toolbox. She colored with Distress Inks and Heavy White Gesso.
For the calendar Terelisa printed the Watercolor Paper using the Gelli Plate and Distress Oxide Inks. She used STAMPtember® Ornate Ornaments Clear Stamp Set and heat embossed the designs onto ModaScrap Christmas Holidays cards.
Andrea made a fun and festive Halloween tag featuring the STAMPtember Handlettered Halloween stamp set. She also used Dina Wakley’s Spaced Dots stencil and some Marabu Acrylic Art Spray in Petrol, Reseda, Black and Caribbean for the background.
Anna-Karin likes to do nature-themed pages in her art journal, and the STAMPtember® Big Picture Book Fox was the perfect focal point for such a page. The cool bubble-circles are from one of the great stamps on the Ornate Ornaments set, although not used as a Christmas ornament here.
Barbara has been inspired by a lot of Simon’s products to create her 3D card with Sizzix Mini Shadow Box Thinlits Die.

To decorate the front of the card Simon Says Deco Diamonds Background.
Emma created a Christmas card using the Ornate Ornaments Stamp and Die Set as her focal point. She added the brightly coloured ornaments onto a background created with the Tim Holtz Stripes and Holiday stamp and finished with a bough of Holiday Greens die cuts.
