Say What?

Sunday, September 29, 2013

It's Monday! There's a new challenge going on at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog. Phrases, sentiments and alphabets are important assets to a stampers art cache.  So let’s not leave the words out of our STAMPtember® celebration! The Simon Says Stamp Monday challenge design team is embracing the written word and sharing our creations with you this week. This week I chose to focus on positive words. The Simon Says DIE & STAMPS SET SENTIMENTS OF BE set was perfect for what I had in mind.  I wanted the words to be the focus and I wanted them to be seen and felt, so I created these Altered Affirmation Clips.

Chip clips, paper clips, and even scrapbook embellishments will now be replaced with Affirmation Clips.  Common, household clothespins were given a make-over with Wild Honey Distress Paint.  The words were stamped with permanent ink so they wouldn't smear and smudge.  Some Distress Inks added a bit of character.  And I coated the clips with Diamond Glaze to seal and protect.  Distress Paint was added to vintage keys and then topped with a game number.

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.

Be sure to upload your wordy project to the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog for a random chance to win a $50.00 gift voucher to Simon Says Stamp!  Your project could also be chosen to be featured in our designer spotlight.
