Happy Stamptember with Simon Says Stamp and Honey Bee Stamps! If you are not familiar with this, Simon Says Stamp has a month long celebration with collaborations and other amazing fun. Today is the collaboration with Honey Bee Stamps!

Honey Bee Stamps has designed the Be a Sunflower Stamp Set with coordinating dies for this exclusive release. And when I say exclusive, I’m not kidding. This will fly out the door and once it is gone, it is gone. Shop early and shop fast!

For my affiliate link to shop at no cost to you: BE A SUNFLOWER STAMP AND HONEY CUT DIES

This set is simply the sweetest and I love the row of sunflowers! And the sentiments really are true keepers! As with all Honey Bee Stamps sets, the sentiment dies help you cut the sentiments close to the words. I stamped my image onto watercolor paper so that I could play with water and distress inks. I love this splattered effect and it is so simple to do.

Using a clear block, I smooshed distress ink onto the block and then spritzed with a little bit of water. Then I just applied to the image where I wanted each color. Not very precise but that is the look. I used Fossilized Amber, Rustic Wilderness and Tumbled Glass Distress Inks.

All of these products are available at Simon Says Stamp and I have included them in my links below (again, at no cost to you). Thanks so much for joining me for this fun event! Hope you enjoy this wonderful reveal!


This was sold out before your email arrived in my Inbox — Not your fault in the least, but it is upsetting. I could understand having the special items not available again for a few months, or require pre-paid reservations after September, but the whole “exclusive for a minimum amount of time” is why I studiously avoid the SSS website during September.

This is a great technique for this stamp. too bad we cannot get this or any of the Stamptember sets. Every time I get an email I have immediately gone to the website and everything is sold out. I know you don’t control how many set are available, but surely there has to be a better way to do Stamptember. From what I’ve seen this year, I won’t even bother to look at the sets next year. SSS could make three times as much if they had sets available. If they are trying to make this very exclusive by limiting the numbers available, then let people know what is going to be available at least so we can sit on top of our computers until they come out. lol
Pass this on to SSS because I see I am not the only one who has mentioned it and I know of several others that have the same frustrations.
Thanks for listening to me complain. Jen, you know I love your work and I love how you have handled the inking on this image. Really gives it a lot of charachter.
