Good morning! We’re celebrating STAMPtember over at Simon Says Stamp with a giant party today!! Blogs all over the world (literally) are sharing inspiration using the new STAMPtember release! You can find more details over at the Simon Says Stamp blog but while you’re here you can check out my project below and get details on my extra special promotion! All the party stops have different promotions so make sure you check them all out!
I shared another card yesterday and you can find the video for that below or over on my YouTube channel. And this month I’m hosting a big $100 giveaway for one lucky YouTube subscriber so head over and subscribe for a chance to win! 🙂
Today I used the same Fall Frenchies set but created a much more vibrant autumn-themed card! I really love the contrast between the two cards!
Amusingly enough the background for this card was originally going to be the background for yesterday’s card but I realized quickly that it was a little too loud for my fawn-colored frenchie. But I decided not to throw it away and I’m really glad I kept it because it’s perfect for this bold black and white pup!
To start I stamped the dog with versafine and heat-embossed him with clear embossing powder. I colored him with copic markers and then die-cut him with the coordinating dies before adding accents with a white gel pen. I also stamped the sentiment from Fall Frenchies onto black cardstock with versamark and heat-embossed them with gold embossing powder before trimming them down to thin labels!
To create this background I blended Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold, and Ripe Persimmon distress oxide inks onto a panel of white cardstock. I splattered it with water and blotted off the excess. Then I placed the Tumbling Leaves stencil over the panel and spread Gold Glitz Glitter Gel over the stencil. It was my first time using this product and I’m in love! It spreads so easily and is blindingly bright and sparkly!! I let that dry completely and then adhered my pup and sentiments. Finally I finished the card with a few Autumn Leaves sequins!
And that’s it! My STAMPtember promotion is the cute Dancing Deer die, free with any purchase at Simon Says Stamp using the code DDR597. You can actually see where I used the Dancing Deer die here!

Don’t know if I’m too late, but regardless, I had to comment & tell you I think your card is fabulous. Love the background colours & that Frenchie is too darn cute.
sandy M says
Both of your cards are so cute. How could they not when you have such a cute puppy. I think my favorite of the two is today’s card. I love the leaf background on that one better.
Annette Reed says
I left a comment on YouTube video also. These look wonderful! I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that the leaf stencil is out of stock-especially after seeing this. I love those leaves! Thanks for the giveaway on your channel. Good luck getting enough subscribers.
