Hi there stampers!

Since today is the first day of STAMPtember, where we celebrate all the reasons we love this hobby of ours, challenge #79 is all about stamping! "Just Stamp It" is the theme. As long as you've used any kind of stamping on your cards or projects, you're good to go!

For those of you who may not know what STAMPtember is all about, it's a month long celebration! Follow our blog - simonsaysstampblog.com - each day of the month for tons of inspiration, new releases, collaborations with some of your favorite stamping companies, giveaways, surprises, contests, blog hops and more! We'd love for you to come celebrate with us!

Here is an explanation of what STAMPtember means to all of us at Simon, from the blog post today: "......First off, we’re debuting a wide-assortment of amazing and inspiring products that you’re going to love. But honestly, when you get right down to it, STAMPtember® is SO MUCH MORE. It’s a celebration of who we are and what we do. It focuses on all of us coming together as a community of friends; each sharing a common love for creativity and sharing handmade-kindness.

Regardless of our geography, experiences or differences, we join hands across the globe to celebrate this hobby of ours that brings us (and OTHERS) so much joy."


Needless to say, we LOVE STAMPtember and hope you do too!

And just in case you'd like to take a look at all the new products we shared on the blog today, to kick off this fun month, here's a quick link you can copy and paste into your browser: ldli.co/e/pd290

Here's a reminder of the rules:

--- Each card or project created for the challenge must use at least one Simon Says Stamp exclusive brand image, such as their stamps, stencils or dies. This is an important rule. Simon sponsors this group and these challenges, so it's only fair that players use Simon's very own products.

--- Please upload cards to your Flickr photostream and tag them with the appropriate tag name. For this week's challenge it will be SSSflickrchallenge#79 all one word with no spaces. Tagging photos is easy - just find the "add tag" area, below and to the right, when looking at any photo in your photostream, click it, add the tag, then press enter.

--- Please mention in your photo-description, underneath your photo, that your card or project is for the challenge. Also, please let us know which SSS exclusive products you used.

--- Don't forget to add your photo to the SSS Flickr group.

--- Projects for the challenges must be newly created.

--- Submit as many projects as you like for each challenge.

--- You can add your card or project to no more than three other challenges.

--- If you share projects made for our challenges on your blogs too, please share the inspiration graphic in your post (if there is one) and also please add a link back to this discussion thread.

--- We'd love it if you could take a small amount of time, after uploading your card or project to the group, to comment on a few other group members' photos. We all love to receive encouragement for our creations!

You have until Thursday, 9:00am EDT, September 14, 2017 to upload your cards/projects to the SSS Flickr group. The random winners will be announced shortly thereafter, on the same day, in a new discussion thread.

There will be TWO winners, randomly selected from all the entries. Each winner will receive a $25.00 gift card to the Simon Says Stamp online store!

We're on Instagram!

Do you use Instagram? If so, please add the tag, #sssflickrchallenge to your challenge entry uploads so we can see them there too! (When using this tag for Instagram, remember it is WITHOUT the challenge #)

Enjoy the challenge and Happy STAMPtember!
The Simon team
I've already got so much of the release in my wishlist & I haven't even been to all the hop stops yet! Being a stamper at heart, this challenge theme is perfect for me--even though I love the last card I made using all dies! Happy STAMPtember to all of you at SSS!

My package shipped yesterday with one of the Stamptember Exclusives and I think I will actually have time to create with it for this challenge.
