“Your Presents”

Have you been watching the calendar waiting for Sept 1st so you can order from the Holiday Catalog?  It’s only 2 days away now! There have been lots of sneak peeks popping up around the internet using new products from the Holiday Catalog.

A friend who went to the Stampin’ Up! Convention in July, sent me both a stamp set and the supplies for the Make & Take that she received.  Here are the 2 cards which show how versatile the Your Presents stamp set can be.

The first one uses stamp set for a birthday card (the sentiment comes from my Tin of Cards stamp set).

Just Presents Make and Take

The second card is a Christmas card!  Love that this stamp set can do double duty.

Just Presents Mint Macaron

Your Presents is intended to be used with  the “kissing” technique.  If that technique is new to you, watch the video below to see how it’s done.  Emily from Stampin’ Up! uses a different stamp set on the video but the technique is the same.

If you need a Holiday Catalog and are planning to shop with me, I’ll be happy to get a catalog to you.  Email me: [email protected]

PPA 265

 

Stamp Set – Birthday Blossoms
Cardstock – Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Whisper White
Ink – Tempting Turquoise, Daffodil Delight
Accessories – Aquapainters, Snail Adhesive

This is one of the cards we’ll be making at my September Card Class.  I used the sketch from the Pals Paper Arts Sketch Challenge this week as my starting point.  Since September is my birthday month, I wanted to include a birthday card in the mix along with some of the fall cards we’ll be making.

Stamping Tip:   I used the Aquapainter to pick up some Daffodil Delight ink from the lid of the ink pad and colored in the center of the flowers.

Trio of Butterflies

Trio of ButterfliesStamp Set – Endless Thanks
Ink – Sahara Sand
Cardstock – Sahara Sand, Very Vanilla, Timeless Elegance DSP
Accessories – Bold Butterfly Framelits, Big Shot, Magnetic Platform, Metal Rimmed Pearls, Snail Adhesive

I was inspired to make this card when a customer shared a card as a “show & tell”.  Her card featured a similar layout. and I loved the classic look.

Buying Tip:  Get 3 colors of cardstock that coordinate with each package of Designer Series Paper when you purchase the Coordinating Cardsock Pack.  For instance, in the Timeless Elegance Cardstock Pack you will get 24 sheets (8 each of Basic Black, Sahara Sand, and Very Vanilla) which are colors featured in the designer series paper, Timeless Elegance.

Stampin’ Up! is making it easier to color coordinate even if you are on a limited budget.  One of the things I love about Stampin’ Up! is the richness of their color collections and how easy it is to make great looking cards when you use coordinating products.  I know that Basic Black cardstock, ribbon, buttons, Designer Series Paper, etc will all coordinate perfectly when I use Stampin’ Up! products.

Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Stamping!
