Oh, Hello

This Simon Says Stamp STAMPtember Celebration is epic, and the sets they've released in collaboration with some amazing companies is just as epic. Today I have the honor of showcasing the Simon Says Stamp and Concord & 9th Collaboration called Oh Hello.

I'm in awe with the way these stamps to mimic actual brushstrokes. I asked my oldest son what he would make with this set, as the possibilities are really limitless, and he said "balloons." Ok, I can make that work!

I started by stamping the dot in the set six different times in various shades of pink/purple and added some straight marker lines and little ties on the balloons. Then I stamped the sentiment from the Oh Hello set and finished it with a previously released Concord & 9th set.

This one layer card would be super cute as a set of different colored balloons featured on each card, or customized to the recipient's favorite color. It would be super easy to recreate for a beginner stamper as well, and very economical as it is only one layer.

I hope you've had a chance to see some of the fabulous inspiration shared so far with the STAMPtember Celebration.


  1. What a great card Karen. These make fantastic balloons. I have been stuck for an idea before when I'd ask a random fam. member what they would do with a certain set and it always amazes me of what they would see that I didn't. Its a great way to get inspired to try something different. Love it Karen.

  2. your card is awesome and I love the ombre balloons.

  3. I love your card and the colors. Such a creative use of this stamp set!! Could you tell me what inks and colors you used?
