STAMPtember with Reverse Confetti!

Good evening! I'm super excited to be stopping by with a couple cards using the newest STAMPtember collaboration with Simon Says Stamp - this time partnered up with Reverse Confetti! Woohoo!!!

The amazing thing about this stamp set, Celebrate Your Day, is that all the profits from this set are going to support the Pink Fund, a charity to Reverse Confetti Owner Jennifer del Muro's heart. Many of you know that she has been fighting an amazing battle this year against breast cancer. In Jen's words - "they [The Pink Fund] offer financial support to women going through Breast Cancer Treatment. While I am fortunate enough to not have to utilize such services, it is close to my heart and an important cause for me..." How amazing is that?

This set is such a fun sentiment stamp set! I have two cards - first up, one featuring just some of the fun sentiments:

For this card, I stamped the large "celebrate" in Dark Roast Dye Ink. I then stamped several of the smaller sentiments in Brick Dye Ink. Trimmed that panel down, and mounted on a kraft cardbase, then finished off with a bit of hemp twine tied around the top! Isn't that a fun font? 

My second card wasn't planned that way, but for some reason all I can think of is a toy Tonka truck - anyone else?

For this one I used the fabulous layers for the sentiment. I stamped the large "celebrate" first in embossing ink, heat embossed in white (wish I'd done clear, but that's okay!) - blended some Distress Oxide ink up from the bottom in an ombre so that the heat embossed part resisted the ink. I then used my MISTI to help me line up and stamp the stripes over the top, and added the small sentiment underneath. Added a few White Nuvo Drops (that soaked up the color of the Oxide ink and turned a paler shade of yellow!) - and there you go. A fun one layer card, that somehow seems like it would be perfect for a young boy!

So many possibilities with this stamp set - here is a look at the entire thing - you can purchase it HERE!
