Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Stamp It Card using Simon's Big Bold Birthday Set and Tim Holtz's Halloween Sketchbook

 Welcome to STAMPtember 2023!  I always look forward to the crafty stamp collaborations that come around this time of year over at Simon.  And this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge is to Stamp It!  One of my favorite stamping techniques is to mix and match stamps from different sets and designers to create new scenes.  So for my project, an October birthday card, I combined Simon's Big Bold Birthday stamps and dies with Tim Holtz's Halloween Sketchbook and Studio Light's One Way Ticket stamp sets.

I started with the background.  I cut a rectangle out of Strathmore Mixed Media paper using Avery Elle's Pierced Rounded Frame dies.  I painted it with acrylic paint, then I stamped some circles onto it using a Studio Light (Art by Marlene) stamp set called One Way Ticket.  While my background was drying, I cut out the birthday sentiment and balloons using Simon's Big Bold Birthday dies.  I stamped the bat guy from Tim Holtz's Halloween Sketchbook stamp set and fussy-cut him out, too.

The only thing left to do was glue everything down and stamp on the "HAPPY" part.  This October birthday card was done!  

Here are the supplies I used that you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
