I was so excited to attend Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage in Savannah early this month – not only was I able to see new products and flip through the new 2017-2018 Annual Catalog, but I had plenty of time to hang out with my amazing team members who attended the Savannah event. I shared a writeup of the event (with lots of pictures) in my post on Tuesday – if you missed it, you can see it here.
Look at me! Always the professional – never cutting up or getting into trouble. While at Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, I was also fortunate to be an on-stage presenter. I was given a little bit of time to showcase a wonderful, new stamp set called Crafting Forever, an Angel Policy stamp set. Lucky for me – it’s one of my favorite sets in the new catalog. In a few posts over the next week, I’ll share my projects with you, too!
Here’s a peek at Crafting Forever:
I mean, really! Look at all this yumminess – pens, snips, twine, craft supplies. And the sentiments in this set are NOT to be missed – what a wonderful collection for almost any occasion. Regardless of whether it was intentionally designed this way, this stamp set documents our journey as paper-crafters. Who didn’t begin their journey into card making and scrapbooking with a love of school supplies and office supplies? These pens are just beautiful! Then came snips and stamps and ribbons. The more we make, the more comfortable we feel creating, and we eventually explore new artistic mediums like watercoloring.
Here’s a sweet-and-simple card I made with the ink pens – I stamped them in Archival Basic Black, lining them up with my Stamp-a-ma-jig. What a beautiful row of pens – don’t you think they are gorgeous in black-and-white?
I glued down this panel of Whisper White and then added tiny strips of Basic Black cardstock to either side – it gives the illusion of a layer that’s not really there. I added this sweet banner with a sentiment from Picture Perfect (retiring with the 2016-2017 Annual Catalog).
While I thought this card showcased the pens perfectly, I wanted to see how different it would look when the pens were colored. I used Pool Party, Daffodil Delight, Calypso Coral, Peekaboo Peach, Smoky Slate and Sweet Surgarplum Stampin’ Write Markers to color the detailed images to create this colorful, vibrant card:
Stampin’ Up!’s Angel Policy
So, what is an Angel Policy? If you sell projects made with Stampin’ Up! images, you should add one of Stampin’ Up!’s “(c) Stampin’ Up!” sentiments to the project (like the back of a card). If you’d like to read the entire policy, CLICK HERE.
I have more projects to share with you and will share them over the next week. I hope you’ll come back!
Thanks for stopping by today!
