Quick, go grab your Idea Book & Catalogue and check out what the stamp sets are (the page numbers are listed in the table above). I think you'll be pretty darn impressed with these sets.

My 'take' on these stamps….

Enjoy Every Moment is one of those sets that are really popular with scrapbookers as well as cardmarkers. The images are big and bold, perfect on a 12×12, with a handy journaling block in there too. I always love a set that works well with punches – especially circle punches – so this set definitely fits the bill there!

A Happy Heart is a set that's really sweet, and don't be mistaken into thinking it's just for Valentines projects! This is a surprisingly versatile set (think baby card, wedding, birthday, pick-me-up card), and don't forget that it's perfectly co-ordinated with the Simply Scrappin' Kit on p138 of the IB&C called Love Sparkles.

Greetings Eight has been popular with beginner stampers and also the more experienced stampers who want to fill some gaps in their collection. It really covers loads of occasions and don't forget that you can use your markers to ink up only certain parts of each stamp if you want (this is called the 'omitting technique'), which makes this set even more versatile!

Bella's Bloom is a simple little set at a fab price! I have this set, and often use the 'from our home to yours' stamp. The classic looking flower looks great inked up with markers, or in versamark as a subtle background on the base card. (See card above)

All Scallops is a set that I bought the moment it was available, because I love how it works with the scallop edge punch (yep, my thing about punches again). I definitely need to use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig, that miracle stamp positioner, to line the image up in the parts that are punched out, but it is really effective once you get the hang of it. It looks great when two or more stamps are used together from this set (2-Step Stamping) for an overlay effect, and again you'd be wanting the stamp positioner handy.  

Remember orders for any of these sets need to be given to me by Tuesday 22nd June 2010.

Happy stamping,

Great Friend

Published by under cards,catalogue

Great Friend card

I’m so excited to share this card with you, featuring the brand new Great Friend stamp set. Great Friend is featured in the Spring Mini Catalogue, and is available right now until the end of November.

This card was made by Wendy Gifford, one of the talented demonstrators in my team. She was inspired by the scrap page found on page 4 of the mini catalogue (on the right). I love this! It reminds me that there is no simpler way to be inspired than by flicking through the pages of a Stampin’ Up! catalogue.


Happy stamping,
