Stamp It! - Simon Says Stamp DT

Good afternoon lovely peeps!
Today I have two creations to share featuring some lovely new goodies just released for  STAMPtember® 

It's Wednesday which means -
& this week our challenge is
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge Blog
Don't forget you can enter our challenge 5 times and there is no limit to how many challenges you combine your entry with.
Do you use Instagram ?  If so, please add #ssswchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them on there too. 

STAMPtember® is a very special month on the Simon Says Stamp  calendar and this week we are showcasing some of the latest STAMPtember® products. You may not yet have any of the new products but we would appreciate you using Simon’s Exclusive Products if you have them, although it isn’t necessary to join in with the challenge.

On my first card I have used Simon's Secret Garden stamp set, I just love that cute gnome, he could double up as Santa :)
I used several of the cute stamps from this set to mask & stamp to create a scene. I stamped the sweet flowers separately & fuss cut them before glittering them & adding them to the little gnomes hat & mushroom house. 

As always our lovely Heidi is sponsoring our challenge with a $50 voucher for the fabulous 

Simon Says Stamp
I have created a second card to share today using a new STAMPtember® die called Cottage Stems.
I have stamped a sentiment from the Garden Secrets stamp set in versamark watermark ink & heat embossed the sentiment with embossing powder.
Once I had die cut the the pretty Cottage Stems I kept it in the card stock & lightly inked over it with distress inks before popping it out of the card & attaching it to my card.
