At the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge we are sharing our "Stamping All-Stars" this week. We admit it. Stampers play favorites. :) Whether it's an ink that you can't live without, or a stamp that's always within reach, we want to see your "All Star" favorites.
My "All Star" favorite is Ranger's Vintage Photo Distress ink. I love to use it in place of ordinary black for everyday stamping, but I mostly use it to ink the edges of...well, everything!
So, in celebration of STAMPtember®, I created this little paper quilt using a few of my "All Star" stamping supplies. The entire project was completed using only Vintage Photo ink. How cool is that? This was so easy to construct, that I almost didn't post it. I used primarily all vintage papers, or ephemera for this piece, with the exception of a few squares that I created from the Neenah Cardstock. (I love that color. All Star? You bet!) If my paper only had a design on one side, I just stamped on the plain side of the paper. All of the stamped images were from the Avery Elle Texture Tiles set. Another All Star favorite of mine. I love the versatile patterns! Have you seen the Craft Cuts Quilt circles die? Be sure to order yours now. You'll want to use it for an upcoming challenge we're having in November. ;) It makes cutting and scoring SO easy!
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 11 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember® event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complementing ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media, life documenting, art journaling, and many forms of altering and expressing art.
Help us celebrate! Show off your stamping "All Star" by entering it in the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge and you could be the randomly selected winner of a $50 gift voucher to the Simon Says Stamp store. Your project could also be chosen for our designer spotlight.
