I love the new set, Ornate Ornaments by Simon Says Stamp.  In my last post, I used non-traditional colors with this set for a holiday card. This time I’m using blues and silvers.  I created this card using watercolors over white embossed images for a more organic feel. I used a very glittery holographic embossing powder for the sentiment. Some silver string and shiny blue sequins add a little sparkle to the card front, too!

I’ll be sharing more ideas using this set and other sets in the month of September to celebrate STAMPtember.  This set has matching dies and you can purchase the stamps and dies together in a bundle. Don’t forget to use one of the promo codes to get free stuff, too! Each designer listed under the STAMPtember event (scroll down to the bottom for the designer list) has a code on his/her site. Check each site out to get more inspirational ideas and to find the best promo code for you! I’ve also included all the codes below for your convenience. Happy Labor Day!
