SSS STAMPtember and Art Impressions

It's STAMPtember!!!!  I'm so thrilled to create this fun card using the new set called Pumpkin Spice!  This set is a collaboration between Simon Says Stamp and Art Impressions.

If you are wondering what STAMPtember is, this is from Simon's blog:

STAMPtember defined:

STAMPtember® (stmp-tmbr) is defined by Simon Says Stamp… an event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate our community of stampers.
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an obsession for rubber stamps. However, it didn’t take long until we became a One Stop Shop. Now Simon Says Stamp and STAMPtember® is so much more than stamps! This year you’ll also see a focus on many other exciting products like dies, notecards, and some very special surprises. Our intention is to be your one stop shop in this awesome community! Rubber stamps still remain at the heart of our business, and we are celebrating by releasing exclusive products with many of the industry’s finest brands. Be sure to visit our Blog as the home base for the festivities!
I stamped these fun gals onto some Neenah Solar White 80 lb. paper and then colored them with Prismacolor Pencils.  I really enjoyed my coloring time and took it slow to build up my pencil layers and to get smooth blending between the layers.  Some fun details were added to the jacket and scarf with pencils and a Micron .005 black pen.

I added the grass with a stencil, after masking the ladies, with Mowed Lawn and Peeled Paint Distress Oxide inks.  The sky was lightly stenciled with Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide.

Grab this fun fall set quick before they are gone over at Simon Says Stamp!  Thank you so much for stopping by!
