Cards: All Occasions

Wrapped Up In Pretty!

This video features products from the new annual catalog! This bundle includes two different types of
benches and friendly critters perfect for creating a park scene.

Play around with the doggie, the squirrel, the flower pot, and the bench, and tell someone what they mean to you.  There are 16 photopolymer stamps in this set.  I especially love the sentiment "Anywhere with you is better than anywhere without you" that can be used for an Anniversary Card or for that special person.  Because this is a bundle, you save 10%.  This is a photopolymer stamp set and the bundle number is 148337, if you just have to have it!

Delightfully Detailed Suite!

Delight in the Details!

Starting tomorrow, June 1, 2018, you will be able to order out of the new 2018-2019 Annual Catalog.  So today I want to share one of the product suites that will be available and am very excited about.

Get ready to feast your eyes on some gorgeous goodies with this video on our Delightfully Detailed suite. With stamps, a three-in-one punch, ribbon, and more, this suite is a creative paradise.

Check out the video below that showcases many items in this product suite.

What stands out in this suite is the Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty Paper (146907).  One design is a 12" x 12" pattern; the other design has distinct patterns to cut out and use on the Delightfully Detailed Note Cards (146911) or one of the Vanilla or Whisper White Note Cards that are 5" x 3 1/2" in size.  You could also add a card from the Delightfully Detailed Memories & More Card Pack (147038) to create a unique card with little effort. 

There are so  many things you can add to the Delightfully Detailed Specialty Paper to make beautiful cards.  Here is a card I made using the oval cut piece and the Garden Impressions 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper Stack.  I also added a piece of the same paper to the envelope flap to make it stand out.

Delightfully Detailed Card 5-18

Fussy cutting is something that I find relaxing, so I cut some flowers and leafs, from the Garden Impressions 6" x 6" DSP stack (146289) and added them to the front of the card.  Can you tell what new color I used as the base of the card?  It is Shaded Spruce and it's absolutely beautiful.  I can't wait to see what Stampin' Up! will have for Christmas using this new color.

Happy stamping!
