Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Celebration!

Hello there!!  Incase you've missed all of the buzz, STAMPtember over at Simon Says Stamp is in full swing!  I'm here today to show you projects made with the new Stitched Oval dies that are newly available from Simon Says Stamp this month!  You can see the entire Stamptember release here!

For my first project, I used the largest oval die in the set to act as a focal point on my card.  These dies have a double stitched edge, so you get stitching on both sides of the diecut.  So fun!  I created this little rustic country home card using the Simon Says Stamp Make and Home stamp set and Home Building dies.    I did not realize until after I'd finished my project that this stamp set is sold out on the SSS website.  *sad face*  But you can see that the largest oval is a great size for taking center stage on the front of an A2 card!

My second project uses the Stitched Ovals in a different way.  I am all about 3D projects, and when I saw the second largest oval in the set,  I knew I wanted to create a paper pumpkin plant pick (say that three times fast! *wink*)  I plan to pair this with a fall mum as a gift for someone.  I diecut three of the second largest ovals, inked the edges with Walnut Stain distress ink, and the adhered them together.  The side ovals are adhered with a glue pen, and the center oval is popped up with foam tape.  I hand cut a stem, diecut some cute leaves using the Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves die set and added some twine and spanish moss for some extra interest.  The sentiment is from the Simon Says Stamp Hand Lettered Winter Wishes stamp set.  I can see creating these in a bunch of different sizes for lots of other fall projects... pumpkin garland, place cards, gift tags... so many possibilities!
