Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Blog Hop!!!

For the second year in a row, Simon Says Stamp and Show & The Simon Says Stamp Challenge are joining forces to bring you a SUPER hop and treasure hunt to celebrate the approaching fall and winter holidays.

To help celebrate they will be giving a BIG BASKET OF CRAFTING GOODIES to the winner of this hop! PLUS 3 $25 VOUCHERS to the Simon Says Stamp Store ! The vouchers will be the  hidden treasure on 3 DT blogs and you have to find them.

The Blog hop will start at on August 31 st, 2011 on the Simon Says Challenge Blog
and will finish on September 5th, 2011 at on the Simon Says Stamp & Show Blog.

The theme for both challenges this week will be ANYTHING GOES. You can make anything you like … a card, an ATC, a Scrapbook layout … the possibilities are endless!

You will need to hop through each blog, find the little parcel of goodies and make a note on which designer’s blog you found them. You do not HAVE to comment on all the DT blogs but we would appreciate any comments you would like to leave. If you lose your way at any time a full list of all the participating blogs with links will be available on Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the Stamp and Show Challenge blogs

The last stop on the hop is the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blog. You will need to leave a comment there with the names of the 3 blogs with hidden treasure. The comments will be moderated so you will not be able to see the answers.

 For more details please refer to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge or the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge blogs for more details.

If you arrived here from Becca's blog then you are going in the right direction otherwise you need to start at the beginning on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge.


My thoughts have turned to autumn already, probably because the UK hasn't really had a summer yet this year! Doesn't this autumnal triptych put you in mind of crackling log fires, falling leaves and pumpkin pie?

Products that I used included the Psychedelic Grunge, Bitty Grunge, Thankful Silhouettes and Pumpkin Galore stamp sets, along with Promarkers and Distress Inks.

Edit:  A few people have contacted me, asking for the names of the patterned papers I've used.  I just want to say, in case anyone else was wondering the same thing, the answer is "none"!  Everything on here has been stamped, using the stamps listed above.

From here you need to go to the super talented Jo's blog for more inspiration :-) I would appreciate a comment if you would like to leave one Smile
