STAMPtember® Release Crocuses

Happy STAMPtember®!!  Today is the day that Simon Says Stamp releases their wonderful new STAMPtember®  products, and I am so very excited to start sharing this release, with some beautiful flower dies from this new release, the Etched Crocus Stems!...  
I am really in love with the new flower dies, they are simply beautiful and so wonderfully designed, the detail in them makes them come to life on paper!  The crocus even go a bit further in their detail, as the die cut petals give extra depth with flower petals designed to go behind one another!  Lots of crocuses are purple, so I opted to make mine purple.  The first card, they are simply die cut from cardstock, the second, colored with markers.  I love that you can bend the leaves and the flower petals to give them dimension!!  I framed the crocuses in an oval frame and added a cut sentiment from an older Simon sentiment stamp set.  Here's a close up...
The second one, simply done by coloring...
I added a hand cut sentiment strip with the new Simon strips from this release, and masked the background with a Simon stencil and older background stamp.  Here's a close up of this one...
Oh...my...goodness....I just love these flowers, and there are more to come...there is SO MUCH beauty, cool and simply fun, in this new release!!  Can't wait until tomorrow, when there will be a Simon Party, celebrating STAMPtember®!!  Make sure you check out the Simon Blog tomorrow, to see how you can join the party, it will be inspiring, for sure!  I'll be at the party, too, hope to "see" you there!!
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa

  2. Lisa, your clean style is so distinctive. I have to say that once I discovered "I'm in Haven" it changed the way that I make my cards in a major way that I love. Simon Says should thank you too :) because the tricks that you use to achieve your looks, never mind the stamps and the dies that you use, have led me to multiple product purchases over time!!!
