Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember! Exclusive Cool Friends stamp set created by Art Impressions


Simon Says Stamp was kind enough to send me this exclusive stamp set Cool Friends created by Art Impressions for this year's STAMPtember! I stamped it in Memento Desert Sand ink and watercolored it with Tombow markers.  I can certainly relate to this cute lady with her arm around the snowman (woman?). I just love it and if you want this stamp set, hurry and order it from SSS before they are gone! The exclusive collaborations are selling out in record time this year, so act fast if you can.

Ai Watercolor Weekend September 18, 2020



This one is for all of us combination card makers/quilters. Have you seen those calendars or cards with a quilt in front like it's hanging on the line? I just love those, don't you? It finally occurred to me to make one. I used the house but it would be cute with one of the shops, too. I was told this quilt die I used might be from My Favorite Things Blueprints #20 Die-Namics. There are other quilt dies out there that would work, too. Here's a tutorial on how to make this card:

Here's an example of a Christmas card one. I left the clothes pins off so it would be easier to mail. Use the church and a blue, white, and green quilt for another color way.  I'm sure I will try a patriotic one some day.
