It’s almost time! Stampin’ Up!’s 2018 Occasions Catalog goes live on January 3 – along with the kickoff of Sale-a-Bration, Stampin’ Up!’s annual sales event during which customers can earn free products for every $50 they spend and during which they can earn additional Stampin’ Rewards on orders greater than $250. What fun! My project today features Heartfelt Blooms stamp set, one of the exclusive options during this year’s sales event. Here’s my card:
Tips, Tricks and Reminders
- Heartfelt Blooms. The first stamp set in Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-a-Bration brochure is designed with a new, patent-pending technique to create amazing depth on stamped images. This Distinktive design lays ink at different opacities to create a photographic finish. It’s absolutely amazing! Here’s a look at this stamp set:
And here’s a closeup of this stamp image. Look how smooth it is! I was convinced this stamp would not generate the look promised by the stamp. How could THIS create than gorgeous bundle of flowers?: Well, it did! Just look how detailed the image is when stamped! I didn’t think it was possible – but it worked just as it was supposed to! 🙂
- Sweet Label. The stamp set contains three sentiments that make this collection of flowers perfect for a thank you or thinking of you card. These sentiments are gorgeous enough to be used on other cards, too – I love this scripted font. I chose the “sending heartfelt thoughts” sentiment to make a beautiful sympathy card. I stamped the sentiment on Soft Sky cardstock with Archival Basic Black and cropped it with one of the dies from another must-have (this one is from the Petal Palette Bundle in the Occasions Catalog). Here’s a look at this bundle:
- Blues. All shades of blue (or any monochromatic look) can be lovely for a sympathy card. I chose a base of Dapper Denim – somewhere between the sophistication of Night of Navy and the gentle touch of Soft Sky. If you like this combination of Dapper Denim, Soft Sky and Whisper White, please save this:
Stamp Sets: Heartfelt Blooms Papers: Dapper Denim, Soft Sky, Whisper White Inks: Dapper Denim, Archival Basic Black Accessories: Petals & More Thinlits Dies, Stampin’ Dimensionals
Simple. That’s a perfect way to create a card that share sympathy. This gorgeous set gives a perfect image to coordinate with the simple style of this card.
