Hi everyone!

I’m sure you know that this month is a special one in stamping world. Because it’s STAMPtember!

I was lucky to get my hands on a new Simon Says Stamp exclusive stamp set Be LEAF Me before it was released today and play with it. This set is STAMPtember exclusive collaboration with Altenew, and it’s just amazing! exclusiveheros_altnew It has a couple of layered (of course) leaves, and several great sentiments. I like that leaves in this set are not just leaves. They have shape as they’re falling or flying in wind.sss101679_be-leafme

I really love fall, and I love windy, gloomy, wet and cold fall. And this set matches my mood when it comes to it.

I created two cards using this set.STAMPtember Collaboration With Altenew - Be-Leaf-Me. Cards by @s_shayevichFirst I only wanted to make one.  The moment I say this set I knew I would create a card, featuring fallen leaves on water or some wet surface.STAMPtember Collaboration With Altenew - Be-Leaf-Me. Cards by @s_shayevichFirst I stamped several leaves and a sentiment on Neenah Solar White panel using Hero Arts and Simon Says Stamp ink of yellow and orange tones.  I covered them with clear embossing powder, as needed them to be protected from inks, I used heavily on the next step – when I was creating the background.STAMPtember Collaboration With Altenew - Be-Leaf-Me. Cards by @s_shayevichNext I created a background using SSS Lots Of Dots set and Tumbled Glass and Broken China Distress Inks. First I stamped circled from the set mentioned using these distress inks. Then I inked the whole background using the same inks. I added some water droplets using Tim Holtz Distress Sprayer. And then some more distress inking, adding some more color here and there.STAMPtember Collaboration With Altenew - Be-Leaf-Me.

Cards by @s_shayevichAnd I made a video sharing how I did this. It happened to be on a longer side. I just don’t know what I would cut out of it.And I’m talking there SOOOO quickly!

When I was stamping leaves, I noticed that these leaves look just amazing simple stamped on a white panel. So I quickly made another card after that idea. Here I simple stamped a couple of leaves and a sentiment on a white panel. I covered both with clear embossing.STAMPtember Collaboration With Altenew - Be-Leaf-Me. Cards by @s_shayevichI cut adhered the panel to be a bit smaller then an A2 card base and then adhered the panel to base, using a piece of foam between them. To add some dimension. I also added a stripe of glitter tape on a side of the card base. And finished my card by adding a couple of raindrops.STAMPtember Collaboration With Altenew - Be-Leaf-Me. Cards by @s_shayevichThese raindrops are amazing! I like their shape, so perfect for fall card. You can get them from Canadian company – Studio Katia. They also have round clear drops of three sizes. Sometimes it’s not enough to have only two size, is it ?

Hope you like my cards and got inspired of how you can use this new amazing set. Are you enjoying STAMPtember? Are there some must have stamps on your wish list?

That’s would be it for now.  I’m coming back later today with another post, so stay tuned.
